Reviewed 6 November 2013 via mobile

This was our second stay at this hotel. Chosen for location ( couple of minutes walk from Euston). This time we felt that it was quite pricey. Double room for single use was £140 and deluxe double was £170. Standard doubles are quite small (typical London I suppose). Breakfast was not included and would have cost us £17.95 each!!!!!! We chose to have breakfast elsewhere. Rooms clean, staff friendly and efficient. If you have a room on the front noise levels from busy road are quite high (despite double glazing). Would probably stay again because of location but hope we would be able to get a better deal.

I was really impressed with this hotel-it was clean, perfect location, great service. If you like walking you even can save on underground tickets! Oxford street is 20 min walk, camden town-25. After reading the reviews prior to the arrival i was woried that the room will be small, however our twin was perfect for to girls with massive suitcases. The only downside- it is a really noisy street and couldn't open the window, but i think it's just the price of a good location and you cannot get everything. All in all, i would definetely come back to stay here again and already recommended it to my friends!

We have stayed in this hotel in October for 4 nights. The room was too small. There wasn't a cabin the bathroom. So when you take a shower all the bath gets wet. The smell in the hotel was awful. But the staff was very helpfull and kind. There is not a fridge or mini bar in the room

Have stayed here many times in the past couple of years usually for work. This time we were given a top floor room (nice and spacious for a London hotel room) and really quiet at the back of the building. Didn't stay for breakfast - but everything from the fast check in and out, complimentary water and wifi was excellent. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend for both work and leisure with good proximity to Euston station.

Came down for a show and so location by Euston was perfect to dump bags, change and head out. The hotel is well decorated and although the rooms are small that would have been fine if it wasn't for the musty smell in room 209 ( something others have commented on). Leaving the window open while we were out cured it temporarily but it was back in the morning. Fine for a night but needs the plumbing looking at.

Room Tip: Ask to see / smell it first.......

Very handy for Euston etc. but the room (101) was small, very bland with small shower room. A room to sleep in only but a fairly miserable place to spend time. No working extractor fan in tiny bathroom with a nearly see thru door next to bed. Large airconditioning units outside the window kept us awake. Poor bed. A bargain, supposedly, at reduced rate of £165 for 2 with no breakfast. We have stayed in better Travelodges at a third the price. The normal tariff was £350 according to reception. Really???

A friend and myself stayed here for 2 nights, the hotel is in a good location within walking distant to kings cross and a close to russell square for the underground.

We checked in at 1pm and our room was ready, it was a small room with around 5 inches at the bottom of the bed to walk round luckily we are only small so this didn't prove a problem. Everything was clean and tidy but we did find that there was a rather foist like smell in the bathroom when we used the shower.

Apart from that there was a safe to use for free, hairdryer, TV & coffee making facilities in room. Breakfast was also included and there was a great selection of food.

Room Tip: Ask for a high room as we had no noise.
