My son and I greatly enjoyed our time here and would gladly return. It is central to all conveniences and public transportation. Lots of great restaurants. My son loved the basketball court outside. The staff are cheerful, friendly and most helpful. Mr. Saviour arranged our cab to and from LHR at a great price.

This hotel is in a very great location, so much in the immediate vicinity. I got a good deal through Booking.com I didn't know I was sharing a toilet and shower, but it was clean and I never saw anyone else on my floor (I heard there were others but no problems with timing to use the facilities). There is...

Simple but quite OK hotel, no frills, but friendly, spic and span! Shared toilet and bathroom between three rooms, immaculately clean. Single room appeared recently refurbished, quite small but sufficient, own closet, one chair, washbasin with good hot and cold running water and an electric tea kettle, plus a fold down writing table. No lift. Bed OK, at silent street...

The place is small but if you are those couples who stayed out more than in the hotel , you'll definitely appreciate the good price and walking distance to the tube. Especially loved the breakfast! Ate it for a week and still loved it. Till now, I still miss the breakfast and nice service from the serving crew! Would like...

Stayed here 4 nights, our first stop. From Heathrow airport we bought an Oyster card, loaded it up and took the tube to Kings Cross. It's off the street with the colorful Barclays building, a good landmark to find your way. We booked a double room with bathroom ensuite. You had literally a foot and half clearance around the bed,...

We've stayed in this hotel 3 times so far- in a twin room with a private bathroom and shower- and we were satisfied every time. The hotel staff are really dedicated and helpful, the rooms are impeccably clean, and the breakfast is prepared with care. The location is very central, at a very affordable price, and we felt very safe...

For me the most important criteria was the location, cleanliness and price. And all of that was fulfilled by the Macdonald Hotel! Very close to King's Cross and many restaurants around, also a very cosy pub at the end of the one way street. The owner is nice and helpful, providing also free maps. The rooms are simple but when...

You get what you pay for and this is a no-frills sort of place. It's clean and pretty basic but if you need to put your head down for the night and get going early the next day, it does the job. Not a great fan of the shower in 202 - too small and a rusting corner unit which...
