“Great little hotel”
Reviewed 3 May 2013

Had a great stay in the Avonmore hotel. Loved the location and free wi-fi. Room was small but comfortable and was serviced daily. Lots of tea and coffee available. Room was very warm but opening windows helped.

Room Tip: Level 3 is the highest (and quietest) floor but has very steep steps, so not suitable if you have lo...

Normally stay in the Harlingford a couple of hotels down but this was the only one available. Room was immaculate no complaints there. Not enough tea bags for a 2 night stay and 2 people. One receptionist very unapproachable would have been nice to be able to chat and relate seeing as on a mini break and not familiar with london. Cheap bed and foam pillows which caused lack of sleep. Breakfast was standard staff obliged to special requests. Not comfortable with leaving key at reception every time we went out and no communal sitting room. The cost was overpriced for what we got for a 2 night stay wouldnt go london again unless we could stay in the harlingford. One of the receptionists needs to work on his people skills. Speaks perfect english but not very friendly and quite hostile. Had to ask for hairdryer in the morning too as one not in room!

We arrived at the hotel at night and no one even opened the door for us or offered to help with our bags.The room felt dirty and we had to ask for fresh towels and remind them to clean our room--they didnt change the provided tea cups and plates that were on the table (even after we asked) so we had to wash them ourselves after each use.
Then, someone stole money from our suitcase--which we had put in a purse inside and covered by clothing--but even after searching the room multiple times and then talking to management, nothing got solved. The manager tried to blame us for it and didn't apologize or offer to compensate us for our stay. After we had complained about that, we basically got ignored by the staff as if we offended them.
Also, when the cab came to take us to the airport, the front desk person just gave the man our room number and sent him to get us. the cab driver even said that the front desk didnt ask for details or anything, just upon hearing our names, he sent him straight to our room. So unprofessional and unsafe!
Overall, it was THE WORST experience with a hotel ever!

We stayed in fair-sized semi-basement room, which was fine for a London trip. Short walk from Euston, St Pancras and Kings X. Breakfast was basic English but freshly cooked. Staff very friendly. The Italian on the corner was good as was a Greek round the corner - both good value. British Library and Museum close. Buses near by with frequent services into centre.
I would go there again and recommend it. We paid £300 for 3 nights B&B for two.

The room was clean and warm which was great but it was tiny (about 6ft x 7ft) and I was given one towel and had to borrow a hairdryer from reception. It was also very noisy, the walls were very thin and I assume that there were Univeristy Halls of residence across the road. I would not stay again.

Room Tip: I have no evidence of a good room

An upstairs room which was warm and comfortable; it looked recently refurbished. Tea/coffee supplies were good. Warm welcome by reception. Breakfast was freshly cooked and quickly served. Hotel very close to Euston which was so convenient. As a budget hotel it was fine and I would stay again.

Room Tip: A lot of stairs to climb so you need to be fit, although there are some rooms downstairs. Restaurant...

Stayed in a single room - was warned it was small - and they were right - probably the smallest room I've ever stayed in! But it was fine for a few days. Staff pleasant and a good breakfast included. Bathroom tiny - but worked - and the hotel is very handy for Euston, St Pancras, the British Library etc. For me, it was very convenient. As long as you only want somewhere comfy to sleep (and was surprisingly quiet too) then this is fine.
