Situated on a really quiet one way street opposite and very close to the entrance of Kings Cross Station it is a lovely family run hotel. The bedroom we had was compact but really clean and the quality mattress meant we had a really good sleep each night. If we return to London I would certainly try to rebook.

This hotel is like many other hotels in London if you want an affordable place to stay near the city centre. In several floors and breakfast in the basement. Breakfast was surprisingly good and was served at the table. That's the reason for my four stars. Otherwise it is not a hotel which you would remember for a long time.

Coming back to London from Paris for a show, booked a hotel close to the Eurostar station (St. Pancras). Single female who has travelled the world but wished the door to the room had a more secure lock on it (it was a basic bedroom door handle lock, would have liked a deadbolt or at least a chain). Check in...

This Place is decent if you need a place to crash the night, its located centrally near kings cross st pancreas stations & the met victoria line underground, quite cheap compared to most places in London, reception not really friendly, rooms were narrow, damp but clean, no kettle, no lock on the toilet door, beds were small, but as stated...

I stayed here for one night with my son to watch another son run the London Marathon 2017. The good things of this Hotel are the location, the price and the breakfast. The bed thing (for me) was the bed. One side of the bed was missing the springs or the bedframe.... it was very uncomfortable. It is a very...

The Howard Winchester Hotel in King's Cross is the perfect overnight base for a weary traveller. Arriving on a late Eurostar, we were delighted that the hotel is an easy 4 to 5 minute walk from Kings Cross/St Pancras. Set on a peaceful square and overlooking a park, it is located in a pretty and engaging neighbourhood, despite the surrounding...

This hotel is clean basic does the job. It's a pity the reception is not double used as a bar as it's 24 hour and has the space to convert the reception to double use. I really enjoyed the location. Everything is on your doorstep.But it's about a 25 minute walk to central London or a tenner with a Gett...

So, what's good about this hotel? Comfortable beds, easy walk from Kings Cross Station, helpful staff. Surprisingly quiet for location. English cooked breakfast acceptable That's about it really. Extremely small room up 3 flights of narrow stairs. Had to squeeze past basin to get to bed. Funny wet room arrangement for shower. No hot water when I arrived during the...

A great little hotel, literally 3 minutes walk from Kings Cross. No frills, but gets the basics right - bed very clean and comfortable, breakfast tasty and filling. You won't find a cheaper/better value option in this part of London. Ok, the ensuite bathroom is small, the TV is small, the carpets aren't the newest, and the walls are a...

We were visiting London for a show and wanted somewhere convenient to St Pancras so that we didn't have to travel far with cases. The hotel certainly is that as it is only a couple of minutes from the station. On approach it certainly looks appealing. As we had arrived first thing in the morning we had previously asked if...
