Quiet area, but oddly laid out hotel

Would recommend Thu, Oct 16, 2014
This is a rare quiet area in inner London and that was appreciated, but the rooms were set up oddly and the corridors were even stranger. To get to our room, it required dragging luggage through 4 seperate fire doors in quick succession. Our room was located at the top of 4 stairs and the door closer obstructed the door opening into the room. When we left the next morning, getting our luggage out the door of the room and down the steps was more than a bit difficult. The breakfast and the dining room were surprisingly nice however. This would be a fine place to stay to someone who is traveling light and who doesn't mind the odd, maze like set up of the hotel.

Money saver

Be aware that the Brits use cash more than Americans do. They also do not tip anywhere near what Americans do in the States.

Basic as expected, but...

Would not recommend Sat, Oct 11, 2014
As expected the room was very small and only the basic amenities were available. No complaints here. The problem I had was unusable WiFi. You could connect to the WiFi, but getting a single page load was almost impossible. If you rely on having internet, make sure to have a backup. They said that the problem is known and they are working on it, but it did not improve during my 3-days stay.

Brilliant cheap clean and friendly base

Would recommend Thu, Oct 9, 2014
We stayed for two nights and was pleasently surprised. The staff at reception were friendly and welcoming and our rooms were ready when we checked in. The rooms were basic but had everything we needed and were very clean. The breakfast was self service, well cooked and very tasty. Just across the road from Kings Cross station so in the perfect location. When we checked out they let us leave our luggage and we collected it on our way to the station to catch our evening train. We will definitely stay again.


O'Neils just up the road had a good choice of well priced meals.

Shabby hotel in need of modernisation

Would not recommend Fri, Jun 21, 2013
Booked this last minute - I normally stay in "chain" hotels (e.g. Travelodge, Premier Inn) - this hotel was more akin to a B & B. The rooms and general decor are pretty shabby and the breakfast area (self service) resembles somethng from a youth hostel. Good points: Breakfast food was pretty decent - self service eat as much as you want (full English and cereals with orange juice and tea/coffee). Location is good for Kings Cross/St. Pancras. However, on both nights I stayed there there was a lot of noise from people hanging around in the park square outside - also a fight broke out at one point - I wouldn't recomemnd this place for a single female traveller.

Money saver

Bree Louise pub at Euston - about half a mile away - great cask ales and home made pub grub at decent prices.

Good Budget Hotel

Would recommend Tue, Mar 26, 2013
A very good budget hotel in downtown London. Don't expect anything fancy, but accommodations were definitely adequate, especially for the price.
