We chose this for the location, a 10 minute walk from Euston, just near Kings Cross. You have to pick the keys up from another building down the road, then face a short walk to your hotel.
Room was compact but decent enough, and very warm. Bathroom was modern and clean.
Now the bad points. Attempting to have a shower on my first morning, and nothing would come out. We told a member of staff, who didn't speak particularly good English, and his response was that it would be "half an hour". After an hour, still no shower, and at this point nothing would come out of the sink taps either, suggesting to me that the water had actually been turned off.
We returned that evening hoping for a shower, yet again no water out of shower or taps (this was the same with our friends room). I complained to another member of staff at reception who shrugged his shoulders and said "It happens", refusing to explain any further.
For this reason alone, the hotel gets a 'Terrible' rating, do not stay here.
