Myself with my family (wife & daughter) stayed in this hotel from July 20 to July 23, 2013. First of all I want to mention why I choose this hotel in London. Location of this hotel is very near to St. Pancras International Rail Station. It is only around 150 meter away from gate of the station. So, we can avail train easily to go anywhere in Europe. In addition to that from King Cross St. Pancras Station (just beside international station) London Underground rail for Heathrow Airport is available (Picadilly line). It takes around one hour to reach Heathrow Airport. In addition to that few underground rail routes are connecting this station, so, anyone can visit many places of London by availing London Underground from this station. Actually in our three days visit in London, we travelled by London Underground only to explore the city. We paid !40 pound each day for this hotel, though this is costlier than average North American hotels, but, it is cheaper than most of the hotels available in London. This hotel is situated in a narrow street as a result not much city view is available from window of the room. But, plus point is that you can avoid noise of busy streets.
This hotel has no elevator and stair is also narrow just like residential stair. Size of the room is just enough for three beds and as well as some space for movement. Attached toilet have wash basin, commode and small covered place for shower (instead of bath tub which we generally get in North American hotels). Main disadvantage we faced during stay, that room was not air conditioned (only heating system is available for winter). London was very hot in July 2013; as a result it was difficult to stay inside this room. However, after requesting at front desk, they provided a table fan, which gave us some relief.
It seemed to me that this hotel is run by a family and family members manage most of the day to day job of this hotel. They are very helpful. They provide free breakfast which they called as English breakfast. They cooked and served breakfast to the table of the guests (not buffet style). Quality of breakfast is better than many other hotels.
Though experience of this hotel was not very satisfactory for us, still we may consider this hotel for our future trip in London. Because, most of the affordable hotels in London are not exceeding this standard (as I experienced by searching web sites), in addition to that location, staffs and breakfast quality were good.
