We were a group of five. We booked 2 three-bedded rooms, I'd recommend the rooms on upper floors as they are cleaner, more spacious and nicer. The staff are friendly, they tend to please and the food is OK. Our English breakfast was a bit of a combination - instead of proper fried tomatoes they served warm pelatti, which I think is innapropriate. It'd be best not to serve it at all if they can't afford to buy fresh tomatoes.Mushrooms were also missing, but the rest was OK. You can eat as much you want, so that's not a problem.

What we really appreciated is a fanatastic location, right opposite the King's Cross station, with excellent bus and Tube connections.

Room Tip: Upper floor rooms are nicer, bigger and cleaner.

The photos on line are not what what we got.

We arrived at 9.00pm, our room had been booked several weeks in advance. The fellow on reception was ok, didn't speak a lot really. Gave us our key and told us we were on the third floor and to use the stairs past reception. The stairs directly opposite the front door were in darkness.
Made our way to our room ( no lifts and stair well very small). Room very small for two ppl.
Room was clean , strong smell of bleach. Bathroom very tiny, only two bath towels, no mat or hand towel. Soap provided, no shampoo or conditioner.
There was a stair well opposite our room, leading downstairs, which we used next morning, it was daylight so could be used safely.
Breakfast was ok, staff were no where in sight.
Not really worth what was charged for the night, on the plus side it was close to Kings Cross and St a Pancras which was why we booked there.
It was quiet after about 10.30pm, lots of door banging before that.

It might depend on the room you get.
Mine was the worse room I have ever stayed in a hotel. It was very small.Only enough space for a bed and to make 3 steps from the door to reach the bed. I have never seen something like that.
Many more problems arose.The noise didnt let me sleep at all for two nights. Just writing so that you are aware of what to expect.
Try to check the room before you pay.

The location is indeed great, however, next time I would go for another hotel in the area.

Everything people have said is true. If you don't want to sleep stay here. Tea and coffee bags are supplied and when reception was asked for milk the guy behing the counter said " No, no milk"
Enough said.

Room Tip: Put another £50 towards it and go somewhere else. It's worth it.

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Booked for one night only to be near to Eurostar for early morning start. Had to pay for room on registration which we thought unusual. If we had not payed already we would not have stayed once we saw the room.
Was told room was via first door on the left after the stairs. This appeared to be a cupboard under the stairs but opened to stairs going down, (originally the cellar one assumes).
On the lower ground floor there were 3 doors, we had the central door/room. Beds were made and clean. Kettle available for tea/coffee was fine. However things went down from there on. Toilet/shower tiny (have seen bigger in a caravan). The toilet had thick brown build up visible under the rim. Damage to back of bathroom door looked like someone had punched it.
Walls did not provide any privacy. People in the next room were talking almost non stop till about 2.30am and then appeared to go out. I did not feel safe in this hotel and could not wait to leave in the morning. Did not eat here as leaving too early so cannot comment on food service. No one on reception when we left at 6am left keys in key drop.

Room Tip: Don't even consider staying here but if you must I assume a room on a higher floor would be bett...
