We booked the Megaro because it was near St. Pancras train station. We were staying a night in London after returning from a cruise that docked at Dover. The Dover train was a quick trip to London and St. Pancras. The Eurostar also travels from St. Pancras. Kings Cross is next to it for additional tube and train travel. The area around the train stations is chaotic and packed with people. Luckily when we arrived at Megaro, which is just cross the street, it was calm and quiet. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. The room was nice, but we could not turn on the lights. We called the front desk and were told to insert our room key into a slot in order to work the lights. Odd. The bathroom was clean and modern. There was some noise at night from sirens, but considering its location, it was quiet enough. The hotel is walking distance to the British Library and the British Museum. When we were leaving, the taxi we had arranged to take us to Paddington for the Heathrow Express failed to show up. The man at the front desk called two times to check its status. Finally, after finding that roads around London were blocked due to the Tour de France, he cancelled the taxi and carried our bags to the tube with directions how to get to Paddington. What a guy! I would highly recommend this hotel.
