“Decent hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2013

A decent hotel with a good location nearby Kings Cross station. Nothing special this hotel but nothing really wrong either except the shower in our room wasn't very good, water pressure was low and the shower head surprised us every day if it would work decent or not.

This hotel is very well situated for both Euston and Kings Cross. The bed was clean and comfortable but overall the decoration was amateurish. There is no real foyer - just a door in a wall with a keypad. On entering there was a disinterested young chap playing with a computer who merely enquired if I would like to pay immediately (!) there is no lift -and some rooms are on the third floor up narrow, winding stairs. Thankfully my room was only on the first floor -but no assistance was offered.

The room had a tiny wardrobe (smaller than a coffin) , no bedside table or phone and no information at all. On the plus side the room was warm and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast was served two floors down in a basement. There were no facilities at all in the hotel.

£70 would have been acceptable for a distress purchase for business but £149 was a real rip off

Room Tip: Stay on the lowest floor - and totally unsuitable for anyone with access problems

Nothing particularly wrong here, but nothing that right. Single glazed GF room right on to the street and a small room (a double supposedly). Spending as little to charge as much is clearly the plan here. Cheapest soaps, cheapest breakfast. Fair enough if it was £50-£60 per night, but £150. No way.

Small, dirty, damaged room - light switches coming off the wall, shower door off the track. Shampoo not replaced (nice to find at 6 a.m.). Narrow steep staircase and no assistance with luggage - dangerous.

Convenient, but so are the 8 other hotels in the same area...

The Leigh House Hotel is situated, very conveniently just ten minutes walk away from Euston station and is not hard to find ! When we arrived, we were met by a very courteous and polite gentleman by the name of Ravi, who manned the reception. He showed us to our room, which was not only a decent size, given this is a small hotel but was also delightfully decorated in bright colours and possessed all the amenities we requited during our stay there ie coffee and tea making facilities hairdryer, LCD television and a bathroom ensuite, which by the way was also brightly painted and decorated and also spotless.

The breakfast was included in the price and was served by two very pleasant young ladies in a small but elegant dining room, with a choice of cereals, fresh fruit, juices and if you still had room for more, a full english breakfast with a selection of toasts, tea or coffee. Not bad for a stay in London when you consider the two night stay for two people cost only £129. It This is advertised as a two star hotel, do not let that put you off I recently stayed in a four star hotel in York cost £130 a night and it came no where near the standard of this establishment. The tube at Russell Square is just three minutes walk away or you can take a liesurely stroll to Covent Garden in just twenty minutes ! I would recommend this hotel and certainly stay here again if visiting London.

I stayed here for one night for an interview. The location is excellent, the room and bathroom were spotless and I slept well.

The staff were really helpful and friendly. There's a 24hr reception and they graciously dealt with my many requests for printing, ironing etc.

A bit of a shock when we walked through door as reception and stairs are all on top of each other!
Room was basic and tiny though clean. A plus point was that the windows opened so did not feel too claustrophobic. However, it is a good location and there is a fabulous coffee / breakfast place across the road. Also great for soaking up some of the Bloomsbury atmosphere.
