Hotel is 10 minute walk from St pancras/K Cross stations which is convenient for public transport to many places. Clean and comfortable room and continental breakfast was nice. Friendly staff and can say nothing negative about the stay.

Grotty, tiny and falling to bits. Wifi was hopeless. Walls paper thin. But hey it is 2 star, 90 quid a night and close to the Eurostar at St Pancras. You get what you pay for. More to spend on Eating Like Kings.

Just the one night here. The location is fine. 400 yards to Kings Cross transport hub. If you are after a cheap no frills room with a half-decent bed and shower this is worth considering. If you are after a swish hotel with all the extras look elsewhere. I was just after a bed that I could fall into after... More

On arrival I was given room 9 but... More

Cheap & cheerful, but staff were extremely friendly & helpful.Room was very small and quite basic but asked for extra pillows and iron and staff were more than happy to accommodate. Great location for links to both kings cross shops and central London

Stayed here to go to a gig nearby, this part of kings cross seemed a little rough around the edges to say the least and the hotel clearly fitted these surroundings well. Room was small, pokey and hotter than the surface of the sun inside. Toilet constantly dripped/failed to flush correctly, door handles were falling off, light fittings were fastened... More

Arriva is a 10 minutes good walk from King's Cross tube station. The rooms are spacious enough for the size of the hotel and cleaned regularly without much follow up. The best part is that the staff is cooperative with various needs of the guests. Travel plugs, wifi issues, bell desk etc. It has a couple of convenience stores and... More

Great! Friendly people working there. Clean. Sober breakfast but good. We were really happy being there. It was a pitty that it was too hot in the hotel. And a bit noisy because of the traffic outside the hotel. 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍 👌👌👌

Stayed here last night because my "usual" hotel was full. It's basic and the decor in the rooms is a little tired, however I really cannot fault it for the price. It's in a great location, and it had everything I needed. Bed far more comfortable than your average 2-3 star hotel, and having a hairdryer in the room was... More

Staying in Clerkenwell

Neighbourhood Profile
Clerkenwell
Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site of an ancient meat market which remains in operation today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough time wondering through the area's maze of streets and you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky models passing between Clerkenwell's handful of fashion houses. Far outnumbering the models are craftspeople and designers, many of them are more than happy to welcome visitors into their studios and showrooms.
