One of the cheaper establishments in central London, however also one of the shabbiest. Positives included the speed of the Wifi, the efficiency at reception and the proximity to London Kings Cross railway station and underground. However, the decor is very dated, with evidence of pealing wall paper. The room was very small, with equally small beds. In the bathroom,...

Obviously this is a budget hotel so don't come expecting the ritz 😂 it's clean, practical and good if your exploring London and just need somewhere to shower and sleep! We had a double room and I have to say the bed was slightly small but it's not too bad. The staff were really helpful and did whatever we asked...

Not a great hotel. No matter how many bad reviews, I don't think this hotel is going to improve.. just over 200 for 2 nights, not worth the price. The walls and blinds were dirty, as was most things around the room and hotel. The bed was pretty stiff. Shower was cold the first night? Worked ok second night. The...

This was a last minute booking for a 1 night stay to attend a very early appointment the next morning at Barts hospital. We stayed in room number 20 which is a ground floor twin room at the front of the hotel, next to the road. Consequently there is traffic noise from the road all the time. First impression of...

We stayed in a twin room which was really small.. Less rooms would make a big difference. The bathroom was extremely small and for a larger lady, like myself, the shower enclosure was a struggle. Everything is too close together - scraped knuckles from trying to flush and hitting the shower enclosure.. On the plus side, there were clean towels...

The staff were friendly and the location good but that's were the positives end. Only stayed here one night and wouldn't stay again. The hotel was small and cramped and my double room was more like a prison cell than a hotel room. Very basic and not very clean.

We wanted a cheap overnight stay as we were visiting for a show. We have stayed here before about 6 years ago. You can't really fault it for the price! We paid £69 for a twin room on 2nd floor which included breakfast. Tea making facilities in the room and a shower room, good old basic TV but what do...

Needed somewhere inexpensive to stay in King's Cross area as meeting daughter and then heading out to see a band. Not far from station, facilities adequate and no complaints about price. Receptionist was friendly and helpful.

Learnt the long way. Unfortunately discounted for a reason. ☘️ was being smoked in the corridors and room was dirty. However, Bathroom ok and sheets clean. More of a victorian hostel than hotel vibe. Reception staff friendly enough. Didn't risk the continental breakfast
