Apart from its location there is nothing good to say about this place, tiny, poor service and wooden floors on all corridors so don't worry about setting your alarm in the morning because the noise outside the room will be sure to wake you up. Worse still was the fact that I left a charger in the room when I...

Stayed for two nights in a twin room with my son. Spacious room with a clean ensuite. Good size TV and very clean and comfortable beds. Good WiFi signal and a 24hr reception. Very close to all amenities but in a quiet street. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Would def stay here again The only negative points are there...

The hotel is in a superb location, about 5 minute walk to Kings Cross and St Pancras stations/. The hotel is a budget hotel, so very basic, no frills, but warm enough and clean enough. TV didnt work, and being on the ground floor, quite noisy. I had an en-suite room, the shower room was also basic but adequate. If...

The room was not cleaned properly and very old furniture needs refurbishing. No aircon which made it unbearable when in room. No access given to wife. No lift had to go up to 3Rd floor with heavy bag. The bedding was clean.

This "hotel" is just minging. First tiny room we went in stunk and was roasting hot. When we lifted the duvet, the bedding was filthy with presumably remnants of the previous guest. On complaining, we were moved to another room which to be fair was cleaner. The bed was uncomfortable, the room too small to be able to walk around...

We stayed in this Hotel,it was utterly disgusting. We had the misfortune of having a basement room,it had a drain right outside of the window that produced awful smells when people flushed the toilet elsewhere in the hotel. The heat in the room was overwhelming to the point we couldn't sleep. The toilet and shower room were equally disgusting,you quite...

The only plus side is it is in a good location and the area is quiet but there are plenty of other hotels nearby so I would highly recommend d you stay elsewhere. Rooms are small but you could get past that if they were well maintained. The wardrobe was broken, the bathroom light went and they didn't fix it...

I had the unfortunate experience to stay in this venue in July as I had to catch an early train from Kings Cross Station. The only positive comment I can make is the location of the hotel which is opposite the station. I found the check in staff to be surly. I was allocated a room beside the reception which...

We had an unplanned stay on Friday night(22nd July). We needed somewhere to stay quickly and had the huge misfortune of this hotel coming up on booking.com. To say its a travesty is an insult to actual travesty's. The rooms are tiny and just disgusting. We ended up sleeping on the bed cover with our clothes on after we read...

Very convenient location, clean and well appointed room. Spent one night here after returning on a late train to London. Just opposite Kings Cross/St Pancras stations and 10 minutes walk from Euston station. Because of the location on a busy thoroughfare there is traffic noise which could be heard in the room I had. Check in quick and easy and...

Neighbourhood Profile
Bloomsbury
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.
