Large rooms, great bed, nice refreshed bathroom with tub, access to historic dining hall for cooked breakfast.

This was our replacement to a hellish first couple of nights in london at another extremely falsely advertised accommodation. The staff did everything they could to check us in early and even offered us breakfast before check in. The room was beyond comfortable and the shower head is EXCELLENT. The nights and days were quiet for ideal rest. The private garden across the road is available with a key from the front desk and worth the visit! Breakfast in the main hall of Goodenough College was ample and even had surprising vegetarian options- veggie sausages and tons of fresh baked treats! Downstairs from the front desk is also a continental breakfast bar with so many options if you get in early enough! I can’t suggest this place any more emphatically! I would definitely come back!

If you book a single room, prepare to be on the fourth floor without an elevator! My room was a tiny attic room with an arched window that only opened two inches. In July this is not a good thing. They did leave me with a desktop fan that provided some relief. My room was at the top of the staircase (literally the top) so every person who came up stopped to catch their breath, leaned against my door, or banged their suitcase against my door. Perhaps I had the worst room in the entire establishment? Make sure you don't get room 530!

Clean, nice neighborhood, friendly staff. Modern rooms.

Loved this unique oasis in an excellent location. Just a 10 min walk to King's Cross underground station where you can catch virtually any subway, commuter train, and even the tunnel train to France. A private garden across the street for our use, fabulous breakfast every morning, pristine and comfortable rooms. Loved the staff who were super helpful at every turn. Not a single thing that didn't exceed expectations!
