Decided to stay here in July 2011 because of good location, reasonable price and reviews.
Situated near enough you could throw you luggage from the tube station to the hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful.
The room I was in was in the basement in the part on the other side of the street. That didn't bother me, although I would of course preferred to stay somewhere above the street level. I guess the hotel was fully booked and I guess someone has to stay in the basement (and, a room in the basement is better than no room at all). The sink was in the room - which was quite weird but that didn't bother me. Being in the basement has the added bonus that there is cool there - even if it is very hot outside! Don't remember if the room had air conditioning, but in case it didn't, it didn't need it even in July.
The hotel is in a quiet place although it is next to the King's Cross station - so no problems trying to sleep!
The breakfast was well cooked English style - and in case you start getting tired of eating beans and bacon (as I do) - I recommend the continental one they offer as an alternative. The breakfast is served by friendly staff - which I considers a bonus in contrast to a buffet.
I would recommend this place to someone visiting London, and I think it deserves the positive reviews given here!
