Well, on the plus side the room, number 11, was dirty old disgusting dark dingy. The mattress was at least 50 years old, totally unacceptable, Not a bad if you were back packing in India but shocking for a hotel in the heart of London. It would have been far more comfortable to have slept in the car. I didn't...

Stayed here after coming back from Disneyland and staying here was a disappointing way to end to our time away. The only positive points was that's it's close to St Pancreas and Kings Cross and near all shops and food outlets. Arrived at around 7pm and was shocked when me and my Husband walked into what is meant to me...

We booked the Elmwood Hotel because of it's proximity to St Pancras, and we didn't want to spend an exhorbitant amount. The room was down a very narrow twisting staircase, which was very difficult to get suitcases down,and a shocking fire hazard. The tiny room had 2 beds, a single and a three-quarter, and the smallest en-suite ever, the lighting...

I always stay at the Kings Cross area, due to the superb transportation links available. I've stayed at 3 other properties. This guesthouse was just a few blocks from the tube, buses, trains. The park across the street, is a little dicey however. No issues though, and very well lit at night -the whole sidewalk/street area, but occasionally "noisy" and...

The staff at the Hotel were very helpful. We arrived a good 3 hours before check-in, and no problem leaving bags in room. The room itself was clean and comfortable. All in all a good stay and I would not hesitate booking again.

I have seen a couple of negative reviews and don't understand why, the only negative is the rooms are slightly small. This is a " budget" hotel in the heart of London. You would be hard pushed to find a better value in a Central London location. It is basic but clean, tidy and offers an adequate breakfast. The staff...

It was a disappointment. Although the location was good, (near King's cross station and 30 minutes from Oxford street) the room was too small for three people. The bathroom was also small and there is no room to move around comfortably. Both the coffee and the shower gel were not replaced once used up. The hairdryer did not function properly...
