My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights, we picked the hotel as is was close to Kings Cross . The hotel is part of a complex of hotels on a square. We were greeted by a friendly receptionist who quickly got us through registration. The room we had was room 34 which was on the top floor, after...

Booked this hotel for a short stay with my family earlier this month. Two minutes away from Kings Cross and easy to find. We were travelling down for the Warner Bros tour and to visit the British Museum and the Natural History Museum and these were also easy to get to, as Euston station was within walking distance and St....

Small, clean hotel near St Pancras and King's Cross. Great place to stay if you are getting in late/leaving early from the above stations. There are much better hotels for the money in other parts of London.

For anyone who has ever stayed in London, you well know that lodging rates are at a premium while the room and amenities are frequently lacking. I booked the Melville since I was arriving late from the Eurostar from Paris. The walk from the station to the Melville was short and easy - literally only a couple of minutes. Upon...

Stayed 06 nights at Melville Hotel. Overall good experience! Room is really small for 02 pax with 2 backpacks + 2 suitcases. But the location (3mins to Kings Cross Station) / cleanliness of room made up for it! Helpful reception staff even helped to carry my 15kg suitcase up to 4th floor, can't thank him enough :) We really loved...

For a clean hotel with all the essential facilities three minutes from King's Cross, the Melville gives remarkably good value. Yes, the rooms are small and noise can be a problem, but large, quiet rooms in such a good location cost a great deal more.

It took a while to find the hotel as Argyle Square wasn't in my A-Z so I had to ask at another hotel. I found it easily then but the hotel has a very understated sign so look carefully! Checking in went smoothly and the receptionist was very welcoming. The second- floor room was very small but fine for just...

I don't know the rate but I came to London for one night at short notice and it sufficed. Could be much better . Great location and the picture is from the front. On arrival looks great bur the welcome was ok but not informative. Room very small and using the sink you needed to be a contortionist. Ok on...

Hotel Melville has a great location near Kings Cross. The rooms clean. The check in was easy. Had to climb 4 flights of very steep stairs with bags as there is no lift. Interiors are OLD. The room is absolutely tiny. The double bed takes up almost the entire room and is the most uncomfortable bed I've ever paid to...
