Ok, let me start by saying that i’m not a professional hotel reviewer, I’m a humble hotel goer whose experiences are to the extent of staying in some hotel chains such as premier inn. My Fiancé graciously booked this hotel via GroupOn for 98 pounds and we stayed on the 6th and the 7th of February 2017, Although initially we...

Great hotel for an overnight stop. I've used it several times and stayed in a few of the rooms. They were all clean with modern furnishings and decent bathrooms. For the amount I paid its extremely good value. i think its the best of the small hotels around Kings Cross. I'll use it again on my next trip to London.

This was the absolute worst hotel I have ever stayed in; I wish I had looked at the Facebook page before I had booked. I have worked in hotels, and this was just dire. I emailed the hotel 3 days before arriving, via the website, with a few questions, but never heard back. The first sign of bad hotel management....

I've never written a review for a hotel before but feel compelled to write for this absolutely disgrace of a hotel. We arrived around 7pm and it seems that they just give away rooms at random as the room we booked online was not what we were initially given and then they moved us to another room that was bigger...

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....
