Reviewed 23 March 2012

This place sort of has everything.... and at the same time not quite everything. The location is good, central - but you have a 15 minute walk from either of the big tube stations nearby. The flats are very clean - but they are pretty small indeed so you wouldn't want to spend a long time indoors (although who wants to do that in London anyway? :)). Everything works just fine - but the freezer in the room croaks all through the night quite loudly. Service is friendly - but noise from flats upstairs (people walking or dropping things or running on stairs) can be a little loud. However - this is a sort of a place where you feel that you don't really want to complain because... well, it just seems decent, albeit quite basic. The prices are good for London city centre so all in all I'd say it's a good place to stay unless you can get a Priceline or Lastminute discount for a 4 star hotel somewhere.

Lovely apartment, really clean and everything you need. Good location too and close to supermarkets so you can buy in breakfast and lunch (and dinner too, just did not want to say that and fulfill Scots stereotype of stingy). Definitely a destination of choice, especially if you go for an apartment with balcony option where you can watch the world go by.

Stayed with partner in a ground floor double apartment. Very compact, everything you could want, they really shoe-horn everything in. Ok for 1 really or just the 1 night. Has an internal bathroom with a broken extract fan which means it got very hot after a shower and never really cooled down. Ground floor meant a little noise from the streets - pedestrians rather than vehicles as its a quiet crescent street. Very convenient for Kings X / St.Pancras or Euston or Tottenham Court Road or Russell Square. Very friendly staff, very clean, felt almost new. Bed a little soft.

Room Tip: Avoid the ground floor, noisy and a little exposed when the blinds drawn.

For central London this is a good price but beware of believing their own descriptions. These are tiny rooms indeed. The small double bed is pressed against the wall so one person has difficulty getting out. If you wanted to watch the tv the only way would be lying down on the bed on your side. If you wanted to cook and eat dinner indoors it would be pretty difficult. Also the cleaning staff begin work at 7.30am and are noisy and the walls are paper thin. Good price but I think it might be possible to do better.

We stayed 5 days in the studios. It was an excellent choice. The location is very good just minutes away from St Pancras and the picadily line which is a direct line from/ to airport. The room is small but we are in London so I don't expect much more. The kitchen is very convenient and the staff very helpful. To me a very good accommodation and a hard to beat value for your money. I'll definitely choose it again.

Studios 2 Let is situated on a beautiful square, close to shops, pubs, bus stops, 3 Underground stations (Russel Square is the nearest and you don't have to cross the very busy Euston Road) and the Eurostar terminal. The studios are quite small, even the so called 'large ones' are not really big, but they provide everything you need. Especially the built in kitchen comes in very handy. This gives you great independence: you can cook breakfast (or any other meal) whenever you like. However, be careful that you do not set off the fire alarm, esp. when opening the oven when the meal inside is still steaming hot. The place is extremely clean and, unlike many other London rooms I stayed in, in a good state of repair.

Room Tip: I think you should avoid the budget rooms, as they are in the basement.

Very nice place.
It was located about five minutes walking from two underground stations, one of them the St Pancras Station (the international train station)
However, it is not so close from the main center of town. You have to take the bus or the subway.
Residencial neighbourhood and therefore very quiet.
The price is fair.
The studio is very nice with very confortable bed. There were frigo, microwave, tv, wifi and every stuff necessary.
Very good bathroom as well.
The staff was nice.
If I would say anything at all would be the distance from the center, but i don´t think that it is really a problem.
