Simple and small room but clean enough. Everything you need for 1 night. Very comfy 3/4 size bed. Excellent location for exploring the city. The only negative is that unfortunately the windows and walls don't keep any noise out so if you are a light sleeper you wont get any sleep. Stay here if you're after a cheap weekend in...

The hotel is ok if you are looking for a cheap option and cleanliness and comfort are not priorities. We had a terrible tme trying to relax in a room which was just beside the collective bathroom. The shower was too noisy and couldnt sleep well while people were there. No problem about the collective bathroom, except about the noise...

Location is very good as close to kings cross but the 'apartment' was dirty! The reception area which wasn't part of the same building was lovely but then we got taken to our building which was not the one we checked in to. See photos to see the state of it, I wouldn't stay here again, the whole place needs...

Stayed one night on Saturday. It is literally round the corner from kings cross but quieter away from busy road. Booked two junior suites suitable for our two families. Check in is two doors down but we had no problems with this. Was offered a junior suite and a bed with two doubles if we wanted to stay next to...

Stayed here recently for a work trip, booked on a budget. The location is great, near the major train stations but not so near that it is noisy/busy, its on a quiet square just off the main road. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Our room was fairly small but clean, quiet and perfectly suitable for our needs. Initially...

I enjoyed my stay here. The room was small, but comfortable. Great location off of King's Cross station. The company that manages this hotel, manages a few in that area, so the front desk was located a few doors down. The guy working was great, stored my luggage before check in and also after check out. The stairs are tight...

We stayed here for 2 nights on a recent trip to London. Location wise it's great. In a quiet area, close to Kings Cross for the underground and shops and restaurants nearby. We were allocated a room on the 3rd floor, no lift but that was fine - we are perfectly capable of walking up stairs. The room was absolutely...

Booked as a group for 3 rooms. When we arrived only one was available. The guy at reception couldn't care less and tried to move some guests to another hotel at an extra cost. Turned out there were no rooms there either. The room we ALL ended up staying in (some of us on the floor) was the size of...

Terrible hotel, looks luxurious when you arrive in the reception area it states free parking but this is only a Sunday you have to try find parking for the rest of the time. We took a look at the tiny room we was staying in and instantly knew we had to find an alternative hotel which we did at a...

We were awoken at 2 am, by leaking water from the ceiling (it rained heavily that night). After informing the sole young receptionist, the only room they could offer us was an uncleaned, untidy, grubby room which had recently been vacated. At 2 am, we didn't have much choice, so we accepted the room. However they did NOT clean the...
