    Room was small but clean. Bathroom was extremely cold and very dated. For £125 a night they use paper bath mats which are obviously useless. Then you leave the bathroom onto wooded floor and I slipped badly. The full and hearty breakfast really wasn't. The...More

    Very small rooms. Tired decoration. Breakfast room cramped with allocated times. Poor choice and “full English breakfast” only had bacon, egg and beans. Not worth the money unless you are a hamster. Location was good for St Pancras and Kings Cross stations.

    Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
