              5.0

              Location close to St Pancras station.

              We got a room in the basement and could consequently hear the trains passing under the building.

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              Staff were very friendly and helpful, Close to public transport, good breakfast, comfortable

            • Family with children
              7.0

              If all you want is a fairly cheap place to lay your head overnight this is fine. Easy to find just across Euston Road when coming out of King's Cross so would be ideal for an overnight before getting the Eurostar. Check-in was efficient. Small but good cooked breakfast, served very quickly and it was hot!

              The room was small as was the en-suite, but as all I needed was a place to stay overnight it suited me fine and was what I expected.

            • Older travelers
              6.6

              handy to Eurostar as we had the early departure, late checkin and early checkout so cannot comment on the breakfast. Also was able to upgrade to a bigger room on the ground floor as we had heavy bags!

              shower was tiny but was ok.

            • Single
              8.2

              Excellent location, good breakfast, cleanliness,

              Very small room, but great for the price

            • Couple
              7.8

              Excellent location, minutes away from King's cross.

            • Single
              5.8

              Its location close to Kings Cross for early train next morning

              A lot of noise fom outside. Very shabby.

            • Family with children
              10.0

              I like the location of the hotel, close to the underground, close to the railway station, close to the British Library.

              I was very satisfied.

            • Older travelers
              5.8

              Convenience for St Pancras International Station. Hotel was very clean but room very tigh on space. For a one night stay at budget price this would be acceptable. Breakfast arrangments poor when breakfast room is far too small and guests have to wait outside of hotel until there is room. On this ocasion we didn't have the time to spare before getting our train from St Pancras.

              Unsuitable space for breakfast.

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              Accessibility to St Pancras/ Euston stations.

              Narrow, steep stairs - we're getting old!

            • Couple
              7.0

              Excellent location, just across Kings Cross St. Pancras. Includes English breakfast, good Wi-Fi connection in the room.

              Very tiny bathroom & toilet. Tiny room, tiny bed...

            • Family with children
              8.2

              Very easy to find from Kings cross Station. Room adequate in size and although wet room /'bathroom' small shower hot and good pressure. We were at the back of the hotel and no problems with noise (amazingly) though corridor use very audible Breakfast perfectly fine. Price not bargain basement but cheaper than many.

              Despite checking on website there was not a hairdryer in the room, irritating as I could have brought one. I wouldn't have left out small bags in the reception- though others left large luggage.Breakfast room small ( as often is the way with this type of hotel).

            • Single
              10.0

              Clean, tidy & modern. I needed a pace to crash after a concert and this place was perfect. For the price I could not have wished for better.

              Breakfast was a bit cramped but that was my stupid fault, leaving it till the last minute. Avoid peak times to get better service i.e. get up earlier. The breakfast was excellent by the way.

            • Couple
              6.2

              The location. It's 5 minutes walk to Kings Cross and St. Pancras which was the only reason why we stayed there.

              The coffee was absolutely horrible and a little more effort can go a long way.
