Reviewed 28 June 2014

We had a family room for the four of us. It was small but acceptable, The price was right and the location was great just a block from St. Pancras/King's Cross. The breakfast was OK - cereal, toast, hard boiled eggs, plain yogurt, ham and cheese and juice. The staff was friendly. Free wi-fi worked fine for us.

Now for the cons. We were fortunate we only had carry-on size luggage as there is no elevator and the stairs are very narrow (We were on the third level). The bathroom was very small with a floor drain in the middle. After taking a shower the floor of the bathroom was all wet. We asked for a couple of extra towels so we could mop up the floor so the floor was dry after showers were done. Also no A/C or fan in the room. We never felt like the room got cooled down sufficiently at night (we were there in late June and the highs were in the 70s - would have thought it would be more comfortable). Overall it was OK, but we were at the hotel only for sleeping.

It was very nice and clean, but as the whole London, they were very short on space. The rooms are too small, you can not turn around in it. Breakfast was quite descent, but once when we went later, they literally wanted to throw us out. Girl went from table to table saying the breakfast is finished, even if we were still eating. Everything else was great!

Room Tip: 50 was a fine room but it is on the ground floor, I suppose it is better on the 1st or 2nd floor.

This small hotel is located only steps from St. Pancras RR Station. There are quite a few of these small guest houses and hotels along the side streets in this part of London. The room was comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was included and very good, indeed. This is not a 5-Star hotel, but well worth considering especially if you are using Waterloo or St. Pancras stations. The latter is your connection with the Eurostar train to Europe. The only problem was the absence of lifts...but we were overpacked so our struggles were our own fault.

Room Tip: The downstairs room was very quiet.

Pros: The staff were very helpful, welcoming and friendly. The location was great for travelling by Eurostar, being only a short walk from Kings Cross Station. Liked their Scottie dog, who stays in the reception area! It is fine for a short stay.

Cons: Didn't like the small wet room style bathroom, with the toilet at the far end and the shower by the door, but that is personal taste. The stairs were also quite a challenge with luggage, being a tight spiral. There is no lift. The room was very small, but that is the norm in London for hotels in this price range.

The welcome was nice when we arrived. Everything was explained well. Our room was small, and the bathroom was like a tardis! We didn't bother showering at the hotel, it was too cramped and also we were only given 1 towel each, which isn't enough really. We're used to getting a hand towel as well, and there wasn't even 1 to share. There was nowhere in the bathroom to hang any towels, or put anything.

The beds were really comfortable though, and the sheets were lovely and clean and fresh. Breakfast was cereal and toast, a bit of fruit - you had to do your own toast. There was also one choice of cheese and ham. I wouldn't call it 'continental'.

For the price and location though, it's just okay.

We stayed here for two nights . The staff were friendly, room clean, beds comfortable and it was well situated for touring London. The breakfast was basic
but we found that there was plenty of it .
We had a room for three it had plenty of tea and coffee ,a hairdryer and a wet room .....which even had showed gel ...brilliant considering the price.
I would not hesitate to use this hotel again
