We stayed overnight as it was close to St Pancras Station. Online the outside is typically English. All black wrought iron railings and cream stucco. But inside it is just tacky, tawdry and horrible. The rooms are tiny, no air conditioning or fridge. The bathroom so small you need to manouvre around the door to get in. The bed supposedly...

I travel to London every month and stay here. Its very basic but great value for money. A clean room, attentive and friendly staff and a full breakfast next morning. For a central London location, its not too bad. Don't expect the Hilton and you won't be disappointed.

We booked this hotel for 5 adults to visit London at Christmas. We paid £300 for two nights ( £60 each! ) such an amazing price and it also included breakfast!! The location is literally a 4 min walk from kings cross st Pancras station where there is every tube line so it's a really good location for you to...

This place is just awful, so old and tired with no redeeming features. The room is so small as is the bathroom and everything is worn and marked. There is nowhere in the building to make a coffee, not even a snack machine. The man on reception was so unfriendly and unhelpful , we were lucky to get so much...

Stayed here for 3 nights. The room was very, very small, but it got everything we needed for having a good rest - TV, bathroom, desk, Wifi, breakfast, only 2-3 min to King's X Station ... With this price, what could we expect? I was positively surprised with European Hotel.

I booked this for a pre-planned night in London. For the cost I wasn't expecting much (and I have stayed in worst hotels in London for roughly the same cost). The room was on the top floor, I was given a choice but I thought the exercise is good for me. Hindsight it might have been an error. Exercise was...

This hotel is mega-inexpensive and it's in a pleasant square just across the road from Kings Cross railway station. A great location. At this price I wasn't expecting it to be the Hilton and it isn't. Staff were fine. Room was fine. Amenities were very basic but for about £44 a night (for a single room, ex-VAT) it is in...

This is the worst place I have ever stayed, the rooms are small, they advertise en suite, trust me, I couldn't even bring myself to get in the shower, it was disgusting. Rooms have a tiny TV but I could only get one channel at best. The whole place has a "smell about it" Breakfast is served in the basement,...
