This hotel is cashing in on the crazy London market - they undercut the central hotels, bring in the punters, then don't make any effort. The room was okay, nice decor and fairly new furniture, but bathroom grim and cracked floor tiles with grime around the bath seal. The bed was small and so soft we just rolled into the middle. So-called fruit basket was a tiny shrivelled apple and orange. We stayed 2 nights but only had breakfast once because it wasn't worth the effort for stodgy sliced bread. Lovely friendly girl looking after the breakfast room and she stood out particularly because of the miserable male reception staff. On arrival we were met by a very friendly blonde receptionist female but she didn't appear again - she was replaced by surly, un-communicative men.
I know this was cheap for London and the location was fine in that it was next to the tube and just a few minutes to the centre, but this price would buy you a wonderful luxury night in many of the other much friendlier cities in the UK. A rip-off with little effort made to create a pleasant stay.
Hotel is clean, staff are friendly, wifi worked fine. Location is not ideal as not much to do locally but only a 3min walk to the tube. Big rooms brightly decorated. Only concern was a loose socket in our room. Would definetly stay again
A very good hotel - clean and run by helpful staff. Breakfast and in-room facilities (tea/coffee, shower, complementary fruit) were all excellent for a hotel of this price. While the location is unremarkable, it is handy for the tube. No lifts so wouldn't suit all, and I can see how it could be a little noisy outside (but aren't all London hotels...?). So not perfect, but very good and in the top draw of London hotels under £100
Firstly the hotel is close walk to the tube station Caledonian Road- Piccadilly line (next to stations Kings cross + euston).
The area is not great, opp a prison.
The lobby and hallway is shabby and creeky needs some work doing to it.
Rooms were ok for the price paid-
Towels, Toiletries, Coffee + tea making facility with complimentary biscuits, Fruit Bowl, Hair-dryer.
The area is noisy, but good for a group of friends
Breakfast was continental but still very nice.
Went to London for the night and it was perfect! Good price for Central London, very good location, 2 mins from the nearest underground. Unfortunately for us, the tube station was having maintain acne on the day we were there but there were a lot of buses and another tube station around 5 mins walk away. Clean room, quiet, across the road from the prison, very quiet location. Upper st is great to go out in and only about 10 mins by taxi and nice bars and restaurants. Lovely choice of continental breakfast in the morning. Very easy to check in and check out!
