This was a last minute booking for a 1 night stay to attend a very early appointment the next morning at Barts hospital. We stayed in room number 20 which is a ground floor twin room at the front of the hotel, next to the road. Consequently there is traffic noise from the road all the time. First impression of...

We stayed in a twin room which was really small.. Less rooms would make a big difference. The bathroom was extremely small and for a larger lady, like myself, the shower enclosure was a struggle. Everything is too close together - scraped knuckles from trying to flush and hitting the shower enclosure.. On the plus side, there were clean towels...

The staff were friendly and the location good but that's were the positives end. Only stayed here one night and wouldn't stay again. The hotel was small and cramped and my double room was more like a prison cell than a hotel room. Very basic and not very clean.

We wanted a cheap overnight stay as we were visiting for a show. We have stayed here before about 6 years ago. You can't really fault it for the price! We paid £69 for a twin room on 2nd floor which included breakfast. Tea making facilities in the room and a shower room, good old basic TV but what do...

Needed somewhere inexpensive to stay in King's Cross area as meeting daughter and then heading out to see a band. Not far from station, facilities adequate and no complaints about price. Receptionist was friendly and helpful.

Learnt the long way. Unfortunately discounted for a reason. ☘️ was being smoked in the corridors and room was dirty. However, Bathroom ok and sheets clean. More of a victorian hostel than hotel vibe. Reception staff friendly enough. Didn't risk the continental breakfast

Well given the cheap price of just 66 pound my hopes weren't up anyway. However the room was literally tiny and the bathroom were a wet room, meaning if you had a shower you would have to wait ages till you could use the bathroom without getting wet. The room did have good wifi and have a TV. The location...

We stayed here for one night near Christmas as we were struggling to find somewhere to stay. On a positive note, it was close to the station and easy to find. For £60, we had a VERY basic room, there was a concealed step near the bed which was quite dangerous, a shelf falling off the wall and wires for...
