“perfectly Happy...it is a Travelodge by the way!”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

was a little concerned by some of the reviews but found
a). Extremely Helpful Staff
b). very clean hotel and room
c). We asked for air con room and got one
d). extremely comfortable bed with 4 pillows
e). was on the front and triple glazing super effective
f). small room but had everything in it in good condition
g) . we are 2 women and we walked back from KC after midnight all the nights of our stay and never felt threatened
We have realistic expectations of a Travelodge and therefore more than happy x

Room Tip: Ask the staff politely, we found air conditioning, help with parking, walking map and a great lunch...

Needed a twin room for one night prior to attending the UCL open day with my teenage daughter. Hotel prices in the area had clearly rocketed for the occasion. Usually I stay at a Premier Inn and have never been disappointed. However, they were asking £200 so I opted for Travelodge. Good points were very comfortable beds, everything very
clean and surprisingly effective double glazing. Location was handy. Not so good was the fact that several items did not work, extractor fan in bathroom, bedside lamp, air conditioning and light over sink. Furniture was old and scratched and a drawer was missing from storage unit. Bathroom sink was badly cracked. Only in London would a budget hotel dare to charge £140 for such a room. Stay here only if you can get a cheap deal.

Room Tip: Would be quieter at the back. Lot of traffic at the front but double glazing pretty good.

This Hotel does exactly what it says on the tin. Its located close to Kings cross station 5 minute walk. The beds are comfy the rooms are clean. it certainly meets the needs of the business traveller. Its not fancy but then its not fancy (over) priced either. Will stay here again if the need arises. Would say water pressure for shower is a little lacking but that's my preference it does the job regardless.

I chose the Travelodge London Kings Cross Royal Scot as part of a package made available through American Airlines. While the price was fair, I have serious reservations about this property. Before I get into those reservations, let me make it clear up front that I thought the staff at the Travelodge London Kings Cross Royal Scot were fantastic, friendly, personable, and helpful. And, while the hotel is not directly across the street from Kings Cross/St Pancras, the walk from Kings Cross/St Pancras to the hotel is all of 8-10 minutes through what seemed to me to be a relatively safe area of central London. As other reviewers have noted, there was, as far as I could tell, no air conditioning in my room; at times, it was quite stuffy and uncomfortable to be in the room because of the lack of this amenity. Opening the window to let it fresh air helped with the temperature and the stuffiness, but only a little. Unfortunately, opening the window let all of the noise in from the surrounding neighborhood. People outside got very loud at all hours of the day and night (or so it seemed to me). And, while I'm on the subject of noise, inside the hotel itself was little better. The biggest issue I had was, at all hours of the day and night (again), people were slamming the doors to get in and out of their rooms -- and, were clearly audible partying and otherwise raising a ruckus given the paper thin walls separating the rooms. The décor was okay, but in serious need of a refresh. The desk console in my room was missing one of the drawers entirely and there were no end tables on either side of the bed. As far as the bathroom is concerned, the towels always smelled to me as if they had been burnt instead of cleaned; and the shower pipes let off a ghastly moaning sound every time the shower was turned on for use. Based on my experiences, I cannot recommend staying at this property in London and I will go out of my way to avoid it the next time I'm in the U.K.

The staff are 1st class, the rooms were spotless and in a great position to sight-see London with Kings Cross nearby. We will definitely be back, I am disabled and the staff were extremely helpful. 5*

Convenient location, easy to find, close to station and facilities. Hotel is a little bit dated inside - corridor paintwork could do with cheering up a bit. On arrival having booked a twin room as travelling with a work colleague I was concerned to be told that there were none available and asked if I would mind sharing a double bed (with my boss!!!). When I said this was not acceptable, the receptionist did not hesitate in offering us two double rooms so all good in the end. The beds were lovely, very comfortable but there are no bedside cabinets or shelves which would have been useful. Plenty of storage in the room and spacious. Bathroom clean but shower needing fiddling around to get the right temp and made a lot of noise as did adjoining room. All things considered, you get what you pay for, if you want five star luxury, pay five star prices. This hotel was excellent value for money and provided a great base for a 2 night stay. Would recommend for short stays.
