We stayed a week at Jesmond Dene and were quite happy with our choice. The location is more than convenient, with just 2 minutes to King’s Cross station, but also within walking distance to many wonderful places like the British Museum, the Camden markets, Regent Park, or the London Zoo.
We opted for a double with shared bathroom (£75 for 2 persons), which was fine for us, even though the bathroom on the top floor was really small. Our room was perfectly clean and friendly, though rather small (but as we spent most of the time outside seeing London we used the room just for sleeping). The hotel is located in a quiet side street, so we didn’t hear much noise from the outside. The walls of the rooms are however paper-thin, so earplugs are highly recommended to avoid waking up whenever somebody is coming up the stairs or walking around in the neighboring rooms.
Breakfast is included and served from 7:30 to 9:00 AM. It consists of coffee, tea or hot chocolate, orange juice and toast, as well as warm the standard Full English Breakfast that can be modified on demand (scrambled eggs, yogurt, muffins, cereals instead of the standard fried egg with beans, bacon and sausage). The breakfast room has only 6 tables, and you are advised to get there early in the mornings to not have to wait for a table. If all tables are occupied, the concierge will put your name on a list and give you a call in your room as soon as a table is free. Just once we had to wait for more than 40 minutes until we got a table, most of the time we got a table right away. I big thank you goes to the staff serving breakfast – they really went out of their way to get us everything we needed, being super-friendly and kind at all times.
Overall we found the Jesmond Dene really well-located and good value and would probably stay there again in the future.
