On reading the reviews I feared the worst. We booked at fairly short notice and availability in this area was severely limited, so choice was non existent.
First of all don't be fooled by the address. The front entrance is not in Leigh Street but in Marchmont Street. Misleading. Good points about this hotel were the proximity to Euston and St Pancras stations and also to bus services to the city centre. There are also numerous eateries nearby in all price ranges. The staff were all pleasant and friendly and the free wifi was efficient. Breakfast was basic but acceptable, the bed linen was clean and crisp, the room and bathroom were clean and there were plentiful tea and coffee supplies. When we ran out of milk more was readily supplied.
However that's where the good stuff ends. Our room, which was mercifully on the ground floor so we didn't have to navigate the narrow steep staircases, was tiny. We have just returned from a cruise where we had the most basic cabin and that cabin was twice the size of this room. You had to move the only chair in the room to get out of the door or into the bathroom. There was very little storage space and no drawer space at all. The alleged double bed was very narrow and situated right up against a wall making access difficult. It was however comfortable. Walls were thin and the whole place was quite noisy although none of the guests were making excessive noise. The room and bathroom were clean but there was so ledge in the bathroom for toiletries or hooks on the door. It had obviously been refurbed but could have been so much better for very little more expense. Carpets around the hotel and in the room were stained and unattractive but had obviously been hoovered.
We did not get a special deal for this hotel and it represented poor value for what we had to pay for it. There is no way this place could be suitable for more than a one night stay and we shall certainly not be returning there.
