From the moment my mother & I arrived at the reception we were made to feel welcome. Things were in place re Covid which was reassuring. We had a ground floor room which we had requested and is was very clean and comfortable. We were travelling on the Eurostar the following day and you really couldn't get any nearer. I would highly recommend this hotel and will certainly return. Thank you to both members of staff, sorry I didn't get your names, for treating us so well, Katrina

Bruno and his staff are really very welcoming. They are located a minute walk from St Pancras, which is great when you arrive/depart by Eurostar like myself. Really good value for money, i can only recommend!

I stayed here for almost a week while waiting for a flight out of the UK. All of the staff are super friendly, helpful, and wonderful. The hotel is very clean, the bed was very comfortable, and the WiFi very fast. You are steps away from St. Pancras/King's Cross, and Regents Canal is also nearby for a great walk/run path, along with many lovely parks.

This is a small hotel located a short walk to the St Pancras train station and King's Cross underground. Euston station is a bit farther but still an easy walk. Rooms are small but very clean and bright. Breakfast is served from 7-9 and includes hot and cold items (they provided vegan cheese and gluten free toast on request). All of the staff we met were very friendly and helpful. Plenty of places to eat nearby. British Library is only a few minutes away on foot, and the British Museum is a 20 minute walk. Easy to get to from either Heathrow (about an hour on the Piccadilly tube line) or Gatwick (less than an hour via Thameslink train). Prices are reasonable (considering breakfast is included).

Hard to beat location only 2 min walk to St Pancreas International Station and 5 min walk to Kings Cross Station. If you’re heading on the Eurostar to France or beyond this is hard to beat. Well priced, Very helpful and great service. Take the 8.54am to Calais and you’ll have time to enjoy the awesome breakfast buffet at this great accommodation. We took a room with a bathroom in it, small but all we needed. The hotel rooms actually span houses on both sides of the street. Only a one hour stroll to Trafalgar Square. Terrific.
