Positive Reviews

Location with great accessibility

Travellers highly recommend this property as an ideal place for quick stays and stopovers in central London. They indicate that this hotel has good accessibility to the King's Cross and St Pancras International train stations, located just a few metres away, as well as nearby bus and taxi stands. Moreover, guests are conveniently nearer to places of interest, which are reachable by walking.

Pleasant staff

It is mentioned that the kind treatment of the staff towards their guests gives this establishment a good appeal. Their friendliness, attention, and assistance make guests feel at home and relaxed. Their efficient and prompt service, at the front desk and in the dining area, is noted by highly satisfied guests.

Excellent breakfast choices

The complimentary breakfasts are reportedly good and varied. Guests appreciate the English, continental, and vegetarian options made available to them each day. They point out that servings are not only provided hot and fresh, but copious and satisfying.

Negative Reviews

No lift and a narrow staircase

It is quite surprising to find out that the hotel has lots of stairs but no lift. It is mentioned in reviews that guests with large and heavy luggage are faced with a difficult task to bring their suitcases up through the steep and narrow staircase. In addition, complaints are raised by those with limited mobility.

Noise can cause disruptions

Reviewers indicate that guests’ sleep are disrupted every now and then. It is pointed out that underground trains frequently pass under the building, and guests in the basement rooms usually hear them rumbling. Moreover, ceilings creak as neighbours upstairs walk around.
