Strong Points: Very friendly, polite & helpful personnel, very convenient to King's Cross Underground Station, location, decently clean, reasonably priced Weak points: terribly small rooms, WC/bathroom, no lift (due to the type of building untouched by time & technical evolution), minimum facilities, non-existing "free" Wi-fi.

A double bed and a single jammed into corners and approx 5 sq feet of floor space. The stifling en suite shower room was tiny...

I was looking forward to spend a few nights in London with my partner. She arrived a little earlier and was put into a basement room with a tiny window because no other room was available, or so they said. Also we booked the Albion House Hotel but were given a room at the Excelsior instead. The next day, the...
