Standing on the doorstep of this hotel, you can see Kings Cross station, so the location is really good for the tube, British Rail and Eurostar at St Pancras. Other good points are:- the beds and pillows were comfortable and we had a good night's sleep. Breakfast is included, full cooked English was better than anticipated - timing is strict...

Upon arrival, reception was manned by a hatted gentleman smoking a cigarette on the doorstep. Smelling strongly of alcohol, he invited me to complete a form with my personal details in exchange for a key. I eventually found the room after negotiating a series of narrow hallways, staircases, ramps and firedoors. Rooms are small and tightly packed; noise insulation is...

Two single camp beds at different heights. Poorly lit. Toilet and shower behind a sliding door. Shower very very poor , so high up one had to run around shower to catch...

The hotel is 400 yards from St Pancras railway station. Ideal for an early start at St Pancras the next day. The rooms are small; we had a clean ensuite room with television and tea and coffee facilities. Breakfast included for the price of £99.

Only narrow winding stairs wide enough for one person. If you have a street room there is a gang that hangs out on...

This small hotel is in a pleasant square close to Kings Cross station and St Pancras. The foyer is bright and quite modern but our room was in the basement down some narrow stairs. The staff who were on duty on our arrival us barely spoke but the woman who dealt with our check out was chatty and pleasant. While...

As the lady at the reception summed it up, "a bed, a shower and breakfast". If that is what you are looking for then this is ideal in the heart of London. I booked it for 1 night at £75 over the Internet just 10 days before I went for a course in London. Only a 2 minute walk from...
