                      Good stuff, clean room and close to King's Cross Station but in a quiet area.

                      Thin walls...

                    • Group of friends
                      7.0

                      Hotel was cheap and cheerful and was perfectly adaquate to crash in at the end of a long day. Decent breakfast but not the type of hotel where you'd want want to spend time in your room. Helpful and friendly man on reception.

                    • Family with children
                      7.4

                      perfect location

                      no sitting room outside the sleeping room

                      6.2

                      Location - close proximity to St Pancras International.

                      I did not sleep very well because the floorboards are creaky and the guests above my room were noisy.

                    • Single
                      5.4

                      Close to two main railway stations and a tube station.

                      Very noisy. Thin walls. Perpetual noise from something like a compressor or generator going off all the time. Heat did not work some nights and blanket was very thin. Internet only works sporadically, and not in the rooms, only in the office area.

                    • Single
                      8.8

                      Obliging nature of owner and staff. Happy to help!

                      Friendly staff, family atmosphere, very close to Kings Cross Station.

                      9.6

                      We recommend this hotel very much: Great value for the money you pay, extremely nice and friendly staff, very clean rooms, towels wered changed every day, free wifi access. And the location is just perfect.

                      The walls of the rooms are a bit thin, so be prepared to be entertained by your neighbours.

                    • Group of friends
                      3.8

                      Very small rooms.dirty kettle,no heating at night ,I had 2 ask for it.Average breakfast.Not value for money

                    • Single
                      7.0

                      It is very central. The staff - especially reception - was very friendly. Clean, good value for money.

                      The tea & coffee making facilities could have been a bit newer- very worn out kettle and old cups. Would be nice to have shower and toilet on each floor.

                    • Older travelers
                      7.4

                      Very nice breakfast, pleasant staff in dining room and at front counter, helpful staff (Paul), close to railway station. Paul put us in a room on first floor because we had a lot of luggage. Quiet location, very clean room.

                      The only complaint was that the room was quite small -- too small for two people to move around if you have a lot of luggage. Suitable for two people with small amount of luggage, or one person travelling alone.

                    • Single
                      7.8

                      Very easy to find as it was located right across the road form Kings Cross station. The staff were very nice and helpful and kindly looked after my luggage for 8 hours after checking out. Hotel was clean, homely and perfect for a city trip to London. Breakfast was nice too! I will definitely stay there again and would recommend it to anyone.

                      The noise of the other guests, very easy to hear. Bring earplugs if a light sleeper!

                    • Group of friends
                      9.2

                      Sylvia at front desk is terrific - very welcoming, helpful in getting around London. Good breakfast. Excellent location - would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends.

                      Pillows to small/flat. English coffee is really bad - based on Canadian taste.

                      6.6

                      Leaving,! It is what it is a cheap hotel it has got all the things you excpect from a cheap hotel including bed bugs.

                      The hotel not taking the money from the card on booking it.

                    • Family with children
                      5.8

                      The breakfast was just enough to fill you up. the location was near euston which was handy for getting luggage to and from station. Also staff were happy to hold bags for us until we were ready to pick them up in the evening.

                      The room had been cleaned but was shabby. There was chewing gum in the carpet. and the beds were quite hard as the mattressess were on solid wood beds. I feel that 80 pounds was dear for one night. I would however go back if i got the hotel roo at a discount.
