Awful hotel, paid highest price for a double room with ensuite - did not get this they gave us a wet room which was horrid. We asked for a refund for the difference in which they said yes, next day before we left asked for refund they said no they refused! The room was awful, plug sockets half hanging off,...

This is simply the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. I only got about half an hours sleep due to the forced open window leading onto the main road. The room was on a visible slant, so everything, including myself. The bed was also incredibly uncomfortable, terrible night, I was booked for two nights but I left after get first...

I ended up staying in two budget hotels in London this trip, and this was by far the nicer of the two. It was cleaner, seemed a bit more modern, and was just generally nicer than the other one. The location is good - it's an easy five minute walk to King's Cross/St. Pancras. The only real negative was the...

I booked into this hotel for a recent trip to London. given the short notice for my trip, I did not spend time looking for reviews, and presumed that £80 per night would ensure that I would get a 'nice enough' hotel for my trip - How wrong I was............... On arriving, I was welcomed with a damp, stale smell...

I wanted a hotel close to the station, and for just one night. Because my plans werent finalised till the last minute, the only room left was a triple. Other reviews say the double is small, and it is, because we looked at one being painted as we were leaving. The triple was a great size, esp for two people....

I was also very disappointed when I arrived there. The hotel and the rooms differ a lot from those shown in the pictures on the website. They charged me 138 GBP for 2 nights and that's definitely too much for the standard they offer. The worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Would never recommend it to anyone.

A budget hotel about 500 metres from KIngs Cross. SO handy for Town. What you'd expect from a budget hotel, small room, sparse furnishings and bit in need of some TLC! Corridors narrow and a bit dim. However the beds were comfortable with crisp and clean sheets and pillowcases. The shower was pretty good though the water took time to...

The room was ok - it was a decent size for us as we were only staying one night. The reception area is kinda dodgy looking and to get to our room was a real hassle. We had to walk down a few very narrow corridors and tight flights of stairs which was very difficult with a big suitcase. No...

My family and I booked 2 double rooms for a short weekend stay in London for my 21st birthday. We used booking.com the week before in the hope that we would get a cheap deal. The price was pleasing when we looked on their website and saw the clean foyer, minimalist decor and pretty front steps. It looked like we...

Stayed in a triple room with my mum and sister for two nights. 7 min walk from kings cross station. Was £124 a night for the room so worked out fairly cheap. 3 single beds, all clean, flat screen TV, kettle, biscuits, hairdryer. Bathroom was grubby and old but still cleanish. Staff really friendly, breakfast included in the price and...
