I booked this through a groupon and as a solo traveller was starting to worry having read some of the reviews but these worries were unfounded. Yes, it is basic and the rooms small but the location for Kings Cross was excellent, the reception area pleasant and receptionist very courteous. The bedding and towels were of good quality and the...

I booked this hotel without checking the reviews and was a bit worried about what I had booked. I arrived at 2.30pm and the room was ready and there was no issues with the whole check in / out procedure. The room was clean and comfortable, but it is starting to show signs of age and needing some wee fixes....

Let me start by saying I did look at the reviews on trip advisor and the hotel looked decent . However as has been written by others the behaviour of this hotel is unethical, offensive and downright ilegal. I was not surprised on arriving at the hotel reception (as others have experienced) to be told my card was unauthorised. At...

Having made the booking weeks before, sending 2 emails and having a phone conversation about my mobility needs we expected it all to be in hand.... but no. They'd put us on 3rd floor despite it being made very clear I struggle with one flight. We were then told by the reception guy it was our fault for arriving at...

Well decorated, good fittings and convenient for Kings Cross station. But terrible noise from pipes and other floors, floors not swept. Staff friendly but all male so a bit odd. Lock on inside of bathroom but not chain on main door so felt unsafe. Not recommended especially for female guests.

Nice hotel, perfect for visiting London. Beside Kings Cross Station and near the British Museum. A bed and a bathroom. Iron is downstairs. Hotel front is on a park so generally quiet at night time. No complaints. Would stay again.

We stayed here for a weekend at the end of October and would recommend this place If you're looking for somewhere in London that's close to kings cross and the Tube. The station is literally at the bottom of the street. The room was clean and had everything we needed and the ensuite was clean and had a good shower....
