        • Group of friends

          It was close to the train station, and they let us leave luggage there while we went to Scotland. That's about it.

        • Group of friends
          5.4

          Location

          Heated the rooms when they were barely cool enough???

        • Single
          6.2

          It was handy to King's Cross/St Pancras

          Bed not against built in headboard as it would have taken up whole width of room. As result the back of bed was window, and headboard light not near bed. Switch for light over mirror needed me to stretch to reach. If you wanted to sit and read comfortably, the toilet was the best position.

        • Group of friends
          6.6

          Sheets and towels very clean. The staff very friendly and helpful. Only 5 minutes walk to St Pancras Station. Hotel in general was clean which is a must for me. Would only recommend for a 1 night stay if you needed to get to the station early. The dining room staff made a wonderful exception and served us before the resturant opened as we had to leave early. Continental breakfast excellent, very clean and well presented dining room.

          The comfort factor was missing. No bedside cabinets, no bedside lights, water didn't leave the shower tray very quickly hense it overflowed. Bathroom floor was very wet, very inconvenient. Curtains a bit bismal, needed updating in general. No drawers or a surface to put 'things' on. Cost £70 per room - is this regarded as being a cheaper Hotel?

        • Single
          6.2

          Clean + pleasant staf

          It is extremely basic. I had a double room as a single at the special price of £55.At the full price of about £100 it would have been outrageous. The continental breakfast was cheap and primitive - only very basic white toast.

        • Single
          4.2

          Proximity to London underground

          Very small. Hotel policy is to collect room keys if one goes out, but staff does not check IDs of any persons requesting a key-- how is that safe? Ran out of hot water. Breakfast offering is extremely limited. White bread only?! It's 2010 .

        • Couple
          5.4

          Only for short staying. Close to Eurostar in Saint Pancras station. Just for cheap night,

        • Couple
          4.2

          To much money for what it offers (very small room,poor brekfast,bad and narrow beds).The only good is the position close to the transportation center(King Cross station).

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          The Harrison hotel, just around the corner, had a live Irish music jam which was fantastic to chance upon. It was very convenient to an early start at St Pancras to cross the channel. Was a fair fit for purpose place.

          Bit pokey. Recommend for its convenient location - fit for purpose.

        • Older travelers
          6.2

          Courteous staff. Breakfast served very quickly and toast was HOT - unusual in even 4* hotels!

          Very cramped bedroom and shower room

        • Single
          7.0

          Shower _ water flow was terrible

        • Single
          7.0

          I found the hotel quite good, clean, with a sufficient bathroom, and everything else from a basic standpoint. Very good value for money if you are a solo traveller who do not look for romance, or design, but only for simple substance.

        • Family with children
          7.4

          It was the location that we wanted, close to St Pancras to catch the Eurostar, double room incredibly small, but clean.

          Breakfast was extremely basic, 2 cereals, ham, cheese and toast.

        • Single
          7.4

          It has a consistent service level and value for money

        • Single
          2.4

          Nothing special

          Very basic, price too high for such accomodation
