“adequate room size, poor price”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Booked a quad room in a quiet crescent (thinking the room would be larger and would be quiet.
How wrong.
The room was small with a half partition containing 2 more single beds.
Walls were not soundproofed at all and could here doors banging, and people up and down stairs. and in the room above.Breakfast was just adequate but quality of food left something to be desired, had a far better late breakfast on the train home.Considering the cost of the room I don't think this is value for money.

we got moved here as the hotel we had booked next door was flooded and we got a free breakfast.there was 3 of us girls in a triple room and it was spacious enough for us.shower was tiny and you had to go up 3 steps to go into it to use the loo.the hotel was clean,all staff were polite .the were only tiny soap bars in the loo so you would need to take shower gel.hotel is in excellent location and the pub just round the corner is nice to.would stay again for its location.

This hotel location is very good because of near Kings Cross, Euston and Russel Squre station, and Buritish Museum. And There are many Pubs, restaurants and shops around hotel.

Handmade breakfast was delicious and it was good for me to have many fruits.

When stay at London, this hotel is one of my recommend hotels.

As i entered the premises, I was greeted with nothing but the foul stench of a fishy natured smell! As if that wasnt enough the french receptionist smelt like she had a hard night on the garlic. Her vocabulary was diabolical to say the least.
At first glance the room was dark and dreiry. The shower must have been designed for a dwarf! I would have had more room washing oneself in a match box. I was awakened by the ghasty smell of swine meat and being from muslim descent I was highly offended.

I stayed here for one night in Feb 14. The room was as expected for the price. The receptionist was receptive. The breakfast timing and quality was something else! I waited for over 30 minutes until I went to the kitchen to be served. I asked, politely, for bacon and eggs. I received a slice of bacon fat and an over cooked solid fried egg. Needless to say I left it all and purchased my breakfast elsewhere! Not an experience I would wish on anybody - avoid!

I stayed for one night in this place and I will never return. The good points are mainly about its location - close to Kings Cross, Russell Square tube and the marvellous Brunswick Centre. Unfortunately this hotel is dingy, expensive and of such a low standard in almost everything, as to be almost unacceptable as a hotel. Hostel would be closer to the mark, but it doesn't even rise to that standard. The room I was put in was tiny, the bed took up most of it. The shower room (no bath) was very dark and unpleasant. I couldn't find the cupboard but after a search found it behind a door. The staff were OK, but I just couldn't bring myself to stay for breakfast. It is outrageous value for money - £195.00 for one night in possibly the worst hotel in London. Please do yourself a favour and steer clear.

I stayed at the avonmore for a night mid week. The room was small and a bit tatty although generally clean. The bed was comfy enough. The main problem was the noise. I was in one of the basement rooms and as well as being able to hear the tube I could hear several different conversations most of the time. It almost sounded like they were being amplified into my room.
The location is great and the breakfast was fine.
I wouldn't go back just because of how noisy it was.
