The hotel was very well situated for tube stations and Kings Cross and within walking distance of many sites. The rooms were a bit small but clean with shampoo and shower gel in the shower. Hair dryers were advertised on the web site but there wasn't one in the room. Storage space was tiny and there could be more drawer...

Three of us adults stayed in the Superior Triple room. We found it perfect for our needs. The bathroom is bright and clean. The room is exactly as portrayed on the hotel website. It was great to have the big sash windows looking out onto the garden. We heard no noise except a fox!! We did not have the breakfast...

Lovely hotel situated near 2 tube stops. Only continent breakfast. We were on the 3rd floor which was a lot of steps for my elderly mother so do check. Clean room with air con which was a God send. Very reasonable price would stay here again

This hotel is not far from Euston station but also not in the middle of all the hustle and bustle so the location is good. We had a room in the basement which we were told was also at the back of the hotel so street noise wouldn't be a problem. Fantastic. The room is basic but kept clean and...

Oldish hotel, very basic. Friendly staff. I got a double room instead of single, but room was in basement so couldn't make any calls (SMS's were fine). Wifi ok. No hair conditioner nor hair dryer. Continental breakfast. Near theaters so taxi from Westend doesn't cost much.

Great place to stay, very clean, breakfast was lovely and staff were really helpful and friendly. Great location, walking distance to Leicester Square but also away from the busy nightlife of London. I would defiantly recommend this hotel!

Avoid room 8. Having used bookings.com we were horrified to be shown into a tiny room with a double bed you couldn't even get round, its jammed under the window. There is no storage whatsoever, 3 hangers on the back of a door hardly qualifies when you are there for nights. Complained and asked for a change, nope full up....

My husband and I stayed here for foru days with our four grand children. We found the staff willing to help with everything, including mailing home a lost "stuffy". The breakfast was fine for our purposes, especially the croissants and rolls, and the hotel,is very conveniently located to three tube stations and the Euston and St Pancreas Stations. Would recommend...

We stayed for 2 nights at the 3rd floor's room. There is no hot water supply in bathroom. Its difficult for us to take a good bath after a long hour spending outside. After complain even the same. Morning breakfast need to order and queue for table.

The staff of this hotel is extremly friendly and helpful. The rooms are nice and clean, the bathrooms larger than expected ;-). Breakfast is good but every day the same. A bit of variety could improve the overall experience of the hotel.
