Location close to King's Cross train station and restaurants. Very clean rooms and change of towels everyday. Phones and central heating facilities in all rooms. Very nice and kind owner (of maltese origin). Breakfast every morning.

I stayed here for one night in November 2016 and had a twin room without an en-suite (room 28) on the top floor. Check in was fast and the staff were very friendly. Check out was equally fast and the staff asked if everything had been ok. They really seem to care. The quality of bed and bedding was a... More

We chose this hotel for the closeness of kings cross. Superior double was clean a bit compact but it's only to sleep in. Shower room was small but it was servisable .breakfast was freshly cooked you may have to wait for a table but only for a few minutes.The staff are very nice and friendly.would definitely stay here again.

I've got to admit, when I booked this hotel - an inexpensive, well-reviewed hotel in a prime location opposite King's Cross and St. Pancras stations - I was suspicious. Approximately £64 a night in central London... what was the catch? I went in with guarded expectations and I'm happy to say that my suspicions were unfounded. From the moment I... More

Quiet, clean, very helpful staff. Perfectly serviceable if you just need somewhere to sleep and to leave your stuff while working or sightseeing. If you're on the top floor, try to avoid having a shower at around 8am (you won't get any water).

This hotel was way too expensive for the service proposed. No view and no light in the chamber, toilets do not works properly (even after asking for repair), noise and very little space. The only good point is the breakfast and the location

My room was very tiny, but clean. Friendly and helpful staff, and quite OK breakfast for the price. Close proximity to St Pancras / King's Cross, hence perfect for late flights from Gatwick. Would work for solo travelers who do not wish to stay in a hostel.
