My 2 night stay at the Elmwood was fine. The location is close to the Kings Cross and Pancras Stations, which is what I wanted. The bad thing about the location is the park across the street. There are many row house type hotels around this square, and at night, you might find some people who you wouldn't want to run into when out. The first night around 11pm, there were lots of men yelling and it sounded like they were playing a game in the square, not caring about all the people staying in the numerous hotels in the area. The next night around midnight, a drunk man (sounded like it) was screaming in another language at another man, but the other man was all the way across the other side of the square so the first man yelled even louder. I got out of bed a couple times to look. Then about 10 min later, after the second man disappeared around a corner, I heard more men talking just outside my window on the street and I looked out to see about 4 policeman talking to the yelling man, telling him that the screaming was not necessary just because the second man owed him about 10 pounds, and that he was disrupting the people on the square. Obvioulsly someone had called the police. Anyway, just be ready for lots of late night activity outside any of the hotels located on this square. My room was small, but fine for just one person. The hallways are small and tight. My room was ok for me as I didn't spend much time in it. The bed was comfortable. The breakfast was very simple. Two pieces of toast (that they toast when you enter the room and then bring to you), yogurt, cereal, coffee tea. I'd say the hotel would be tight for more than 2 people.

Room Tip: Remember that if they say you will have a 'garden view room', it will overlook the square at...

We had little difficulty in finding the hotel, it's within walking distance from train station. The rooms were located from the first floor onwards, the stairs are narrow, there isn't any lift, so it's rather inconvenient for travelers with lotsa baggage. The wifi signal was pretty weak when we were in our room. To leave baggage in the hotel after checkout need to pay additional money. Except for the above, the place is considered comfortable and clean. :)
