I have stayed in a few hotels around Kings cross area throughout my stay in London. I can clearly and confirm say that this is the worse hotel ever. There is a Rude staff who talks back and loud at you. Worse customer service you can ever met, (especially in this competitive industry.) Hotel is under renovation and they renovated...

Chose the hotel based on location. Just opposite King's Cross Railway Station. Service staff were rude. Not helpful at all. I had paid when I booked via Booking.com. Was charged a deposit of 200 pounds which was billed by the credit card company. Room is located in a basement. Very noisy even in the early hours of the day. Breakfast...

Rude receptionist. Tiny room which was dirty. Hole patched in the bathroom door. Cold shower. No soap. Nothing like the photos suggested. I stayed for less than 20 minutes and left after a cold shower.

Apart from its location there is nothing good to say about this place, tiny, poor service and wooden floors on all corridors so don't worry about setting your alarm in the morning because the noise outside the room will be sure to wake you up. Worse still was the fact that I left a charger in the room when I...

The hotel is in a superb location, about 5 minute walk to Kings Cross and St Pancras stations/. The hotel is a budget hotel, so very basic, no frills, but warm enough and clean enough. TV didnt work, and being on the ground floor, quite noisy. I had an en-suite room, the shower room was also basic but adequate. If...

The room was not cleaned properly and very old furniture needs refurbishing. No aircon which made it unbearable when in room. No access given to wife. No lift had to go up to 3Rd floor with heavy bag. The bedding was clean.

This "hotel" is just minging. First tiny room we went in stunk and was roasting hot. When we lifted the duvet, the bedding was filthy with presumably remnants of the previous guest. On complaining, we were moved to another room which to be fair was cleaner. The bed was uncomfortable, the room too small to be able to walk around...

We stayed in this Hotel,it was utterly disgusting. We had the misfortune of having a basement room,it had a drain right outside of the window that produced awful smells when people flushed the toilet elsewhere in the hotel. The heat in the room was overwhelming to the point we couldn't sleep. The toilet and shower room were equally disgusting,you quite...

The only plus side is it is in a good location and the area is quiet but there are plenty of other hotels nearby so I would highly recommend d you stay elsewhere. Rooms are small but you could get past that if they were well maintained. The wardrobe was broken, the bathroom light went and they didn't fix it...
