“Fantastic location!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

PROS
- SUPER easy to find coming out of Kings X/St. Pancras rail/underground stations. Just head for Euston Rd. exit (south side), near the Burger King and HSBC Bank and Argyle street is on your right.
- Staff very nice
- Full English breakfast and continental items like cereal, muffins and yogurt
- Hair dryer in room
- Great water pressure in shower
- Able to leave bags before or after stay (for a few days) for a reasonable fee

CONS
- Beds are comfortable but the pillows were really soft (I used my travel pillow)
- Bathrooms are similar to those on a cruise ship - tight quarters!
- Not all rooms have air conditioning (but you have a fan)
- Like most buildings of this vintage, sound from other rooms can be a problem. We had a family with two energetic children staying in the room above us, and the stomping (one night until 1:30 am) was really disruptive
- Depending on which room you get, you may have a lot of narrow stairs to contend with

Overall, I would recommend this hotel and would return. You just can't beat the location!

Room Tip: Although I did not stay in any of these rooms, I would recommend avoiding rooms 14, 15 & 16 whic...

We love this hotel - this is the second time we have stayed there from New Zealand - found quite by accident on the internet - it is perfect for what we need - clean, compact, welcoming, close to railway station..... and the complimentary breakfast is perfect. We have also recommended this hotel to friends who have also stayed there from NZ. We will be back (hopefully)!!!!! Thank you Jesmond Dene

Room Tip: We choose a room without bathroom facilities (but with hand basin) because of price.... but to be ho...

We were very satisfied with our small, clean and comfortable room at the Jesmond Dene Hotel. We were on the main level and faced the interior courtyard (Room 17). Yes, our room was small by American standards, but it was comfortable and quiet in busy London. The room had a very comfortable double bed and several built-in cabinets for clothes, plus a nice flat screen TV. The small bathroom, with gleaming white and blue tile, was perfectly adequate. The staff was very professional and courteous, we had a full English breakfast every morning. The hotel is just a few minutes from the King's Cross metro station, so getting around London is easy. It is also located just a few minutes from Paddington Station, so getting outside of London was a breeze too. Loads of pubs and restaurants in the area. The hotel needs a bit of TLC, especially in the lobby and hallways, although the restaurant downstairs was bright and inviting. I would recommend this hotel for any experienced traveller looking for a good deal in a great London location!

Room Tip: Room 17 is on the main level at the end of the hallway. Comfy double bed, private bath, quiet inter...

The location is perfect as it is in walking distance to the St. Pancras station, but far enough from Euston Road to avoid the noise. Stayed four nights -- it was very clean and the proprietors were quite helpful and accommodating. The breakfast was hearty and helped start the day off right. Unless the steep stairs are an issue, this hotel is an excellent value compared to the competition.

We were quite pleased with our stay the hotel is very clean and breakfast is run very efficiently. Great value for the money as it is so close to St Pancras station and has access to many bus routes. I would definitely stay here on my next trip.

I stayed at the Jesmond Dene for 3 nights in late April 2014 with my husband and daughter. Our room, in the basement level, was extremely small, with one small window at the end and a tiny bathroom that smelled a bit of sewer. I do have a sensitive nose, so the smell may not be an issue for others, and it was tolerable even for me. Perhaps the rooms on the upper floors are better.

The staff was helpful, giving us a map of the area and making car arrangements for our very early morning trip to the airport. The breakfast was not to our liking so after the first morning we ate elsewhere (favorite was the Cornish and other pasties at St Pancras station).

The location was terrific, with easy tube and bus access at Kings Cross/St Pancras and Euston stations. The British Library is very close, and the British Museum only a short walk. There are lots of restaurants nearby. For a drink we enjoyed the stand-up pub outside Euston station.

I was very satisfied with this hotel that's why I am writing this review. I stayed in it for three night and our stay was excellent. The breakfast was very good. I was very impressed with the cleanness of the hotel and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel was walking distance from St Pancras station that it was what I was looking for.
