Myself and my 28 year old daughter stayed here for 2 nights. We found the staff friendly, the room small but compact with everything we needed and the breakfast was delicious. There was free wifi throughput the hotel which was a bonus. We paid £140 for the two nights, well worth the money. We were round the corner from kings...

Great location, clean and well-kept. Single room on top floor was small, as is usual for central London in this price range. Bathroom was functional, shower in good form and plenty of hot water. Room was surprisingly quiet considering there were people in the room next door. Cooked breakfast was good, although breakfast room was cramped (again typical) - sharing...

Perfect hotel, close to the station and easy access to the city centre. Staff was very friendly and helpful! The room was small but comfortable. It is really quiet at night! Breakfast was good, only you have to be sure to be in time, otherwise you have to wait shortly to be seated

Coming usually from France with friends, I booked online, as always, near St Pancras. This time, I came with my mum, so I choose this hotel due to all the positive reviews. And it was perfect!

First of all, the best thing about the place is that it's 100m from the Kings Cross station. Rather clean (was a bit dusty in the corners), small room, nice bathroom. The problem was that there is no window or ventilation in the bathroom (single supreme room). Breakfast was ok (English or continental), but only three tables, for 5 people...

I've read some of the negative coments and I have to admit I can't argue with some of them. Yes the rooms are small. Yes the decoration is not the most tatseful. Yes the breakfast room can't welcome everyone at once. And Yes, the walls are thin and other clients can be head from time to time. Obviously, this is...
