Our flight was canceled and we have no where to go ! They saved our night ! We stayed in the Melville hotel. Good for one night. The room was tiny and a little cold but Very close to St Pancras Station ! 5 minutes (walking).
The room was ok enough for the London standard, for a single person (I booked a "micro double" which was on the top floor). The size was ok. There was no hot water! The hotel is very noisy, lots of noise coming from the stairs and the other rooms. Checkout was a bit stressful as there was noone at reception, I had to call many times until someone unhappy to come appeared at the door. Apart from that, even if it's St Pancras district, there are many restaurants and supermarkets around.
The room was scruffy and dirty . A bloody hand print on the wall ! There was the noise of doors slamming all night and drunks outside the window. Fire extinguishers holding fire doors open , which is illegal. The room I occupied was not the one I had booked and no reason or apology given.
Located within shouting distance from Kings cross and with Euston nearby this friendly hotel was perfect for our trip. Clean comfortable and good value. They looked after the bags until our evening train.
We stayed here over night as we had to get the eurostar early morning to paris. Very good location for kings cross and st pancras. No noise in the room which was good. Beds were comfy. Nice tv with good selection of channels. I felt for the price (140 a nite) you are paying for location more than quality. A week before this I stayed next to oxford street in holiday Inn for a wedding at claridges and I paid only a little more than I did here but the hotel (holiday inn) was amazing. The room was a bit shabby and dusty. Chair in the room looked like it needed a good clean. The pictures on the booking site make it look better than it is. The air condtioning unit in the cupboard was full of dust. The bathroom celling looked a bit mouldy and the walls could do with repair in some places. I slept well here but felt it wasnt as clean as it could be. There is a kettle in the room but no tea or coffee provided. They dont do breakfast at this hotel.
I had booked this hotel in advance. I had arrived in London the day before and went in to reception to check all would be okay for the next night as I would not be able to check in until 10.30pm. I was assured that there would be no problem.Next day,about 5.00pm I received a phonecall to say that they would be cancelling my booking because there was a problem with my credit card (don't know why but this can happen). I explained that I was the lady who had called in the previous day and that I had another card to pay with. I was assured that this would be okay then and reiterated that it would be 10.30pm when I would arrive. I was reassured that all was well. I arrived at the hotel last night at 10.30pm only to find that my booking had been cancelled and that there were no rooms available, My only option was to walk out onto the streets in London on my own, walk around the corner and maybe another hotel may have another room. I was totally distressed and very frightened off walking the streets at that time of night. The only option I felt was available to me was to book a train back, which got me home at 1.30am (at a cost of nearly £60). I had to cancel my plans for the next day in London. The conduct of the staff compromised my safety and left me in a very distressed state, on my own late at night. This should never be allowed to happen to anyone again.
Be careful with booking at this hotel. It is a bit dirty, but what it is actually disgusting is that they have bedbugs. Before staying at this hotel, make sure they took care of the infestation. My friend and I who stayed there for just one short weekend, went back to our houses without knowing. Now we are busy taking care to get rid of those nasty little bugs from our houses.
Lovely hotel in the heart of London Great location for all of London's attractions And as Kings Cross has had a make over lots more to do All major bus routes only a 5 min walk so not far to walk .....
When I walked into the room the first thing I noticed was the bedding looked so crumpled, as if it hadn’t been changed so I wasn’t surprised when I pulled the covers back and found black hairs on the sheet. The bathroom has a shower head which is almost directly over the toilet bowl. There is no separation between the shower and the toilet and the basin, so there is water all over the place when you shower. How on earth is this legal? Does the Uk not have building regulations/standards?…apparently not. The toilet dripped all night long and overall the rooms looks like it needs to be scrubbed from floor to ceiling. If you value your health and safety do not book into the Albion House Hotel.
Stayed here for 3nights which we got very little sleep due to our room being in the basement with a void out side our window which acted as a loud speaker from all rooms connect to it ! Our room was so small approx about 12ft/6ft which was very uncomfortable as there was no air due to the window being about a 1 foot square and opening into a void , ceiling height was extremely low . The bathroom was another story maybe 8ft /3 ft compact to the extreme which we were meet by human waste still in the toilet telling us the room was not clean ...... would highly recommend avoiding this hotel unless you want little sleep and felling dehydrated due to air flow ... will never step foot in this hotel again ...
