The choice for this particular hotel for our family London trip was based on 3 criterious: easy to access by train from Luton ( as we didn't wanted to make to much extra commuting arriving late evening and departing early morning ), close availability of tube station for city sightseeing in "one stop" and availability of family rooms. Those criterious has ben fullfiled. Also number of positive reviews on TA just strengthened our decision.
Hotel located within 5 minutes walk from Pankcrass and Kings Cross train stations. Between those two there is underground ( tube ) station, which itself is a junction of 5 (?) metro lines - very convinient, as all major London atractions could be reached without transfering on different lines. The neighbourhood is lively, full of small places to eat, pubs, small Tesco supermarket just around the corner.
Positive: availability of family rooms ( we noticed many families there ), polite service minded staff at reception and during breakfast; breakfast on average taste, but you get your meal to start the day; clean, reasonable sized rooms
Negative: free wi-fi however requires sign-in ( coming from area, where free anonimus high speed wi-fi is absolute compulsory, we always found it suspicious ); noise of some HVAC equipment ( outside the room or even the walls - didn't discovered the reason )
So hotel itself is very reasonable choice in London, placed in good location. I have a feeling it's a bit overpriced for quality offered, however my very little UK experience doesn't allow my to judge on that. Would stay again and recomend to others.
