            The hotel is literally a five minute walk from the Eurostar station in London, and a major tube station. It has very small rooms, but they are fine or a short stay. The breakfast included is very hearty and served hot.

            No elevator makes it a bit hard for older folks if they have large suitcases.

          • Single
            5.4

            The central location. Easy to find. Breakfast was OK. Staff were quite friendly and flexible, allowing me to leave my bags in my room from ~11 am, as the check-in time was from 1 pm.

            Breakfast room was too small- there was a large queue for breakfast and people had to share tables with families. Very noisy outside. No toilet facilities in the room (communal toilet in corridor, shared with several other rooms). Room was tiny for the amount paid. Check-in time of 1 pm is a little on the late side- although staff did allow me to leave my bags in my room from ~11 am onwards.

          • Couple
            9.2

            Excellent little hotel with very friendly staff, great location and a great bang for your buck. Breakfast was superb!

            The room was tiny, but this is only a minor issue considering we only needed the room for sleeping.

          • Couple
            5.8

            I was not happy with my stay there. They gave me a room which was at the basement level at the opposite building of the hotel. I was there for two nights and didn't want to argue with them for that room, but they should close the rooms at the basement or offer them at lower prices, because they are awful - don't let them put you in such room! Not mentioning that at this room you can hear the underground which runs below.

          • Couple
            7.4

            The hotel has very good location and excelent breakfest. It was very nice to have possibility to make tea after long walk.

            Shower.

          • Group of friends
            8.2

            Good breakfast, simple, but tidy and clean rooms, excellent location, very close to King's Cross.

          • Single
            7.8

            Location, cleanliness, breakfast [so at home].

          • Group of friends
            7.0

            I enjoyed the 'perks', such as free wifi and the delicious English breakfast. The communal showers and toilets were also kept fairly clean and tidy, although I'm not sure if that was because of a lack of use or superb cleaning staff.

            I travelled with another friend, and we expected a larger room with a larger double bed. Nevertheless, this is what we get given the price that we paid for two nights.

          • Single
            8.2

            Very clean and well furnished, espcecially breakfast room and entrance lobby. Comfortable room. None of the tiredness you fear you might walk into when staying at a central London B&B.

            Obviously it would be nice to have en suite, but at this price in this location you need to be realistic and I'd rather have a clean shared toilet than a dingy one all to myself. A lot of stairs to climb, not a problem for me, but would not recommend this hotel to someone with health or mobility difficulties.

          • Couple
            7.0

            I booked a room without a shower and toilet by mistake and we only had to stay in that room for one night. The woman at the reception was very friendly and helpfull and we were able to have the other room for the other two nights. Rooms and all the hotel were very clean!

            Everything was a bit small...

          • Single
            7.8

            Helpful staff, clean room, great breakfast, location just across the road from Kings Cross Station.

            The shared shower. The key of the front door and the room looks the same, causing a little confusion.

          • Single
            7.8

            Convenience to transport, helpful staff, lovely breakfast.

            Probably because I was in a single room, there was only a wooden chair to sit on, and as I am older, it was difficult to sit on the bed to watch TV at night.

          • Couple
            7.0

            The location of the hotel is great, very close to a tube station.

            When we arrived to the room, it smelled terrible. The window had to stay open for hours before the 'bathroom smell' was out. But it was also rather cold outside, so we were freezing in the room. The second day was much more pleasant.

          • Older travelers
            6.6

            It is absulately near by the tube, we can easilı reach where ever we want in London. Staff is helpfull, and the rooms are clean. According to the prices Me and my husband got satisfy service, excapt night receptionist, I think he is not happy about what he is doing.

            Everything is fine , but they need to change night receptionist whom they need to find more talkative, happy and kind person . Another thing is I read turkish version, and there is no sign about no toilet&shower in the room, but in the english one there is. So when we went the hotel we disappoint, bookin.com need to change turkish ersion as soon as possible. Thank you.
