Reviewed 14 December 2016

Rude receptionist. Tiny room which was dirty. Hole patched in the bathroom door. Cold shower. No soap. Nothing like the photos suggested. I stayed for less than 20 minutes and left after a cold shower.

Apart from its location there is nothing good to say about this place, tiny, poor service and wooden floors on all corridors so don't worry about setting your alarm in the morning because the noise outside the room will be sure to wake you up. Worse still was the fact that I left a charger in the room when I returned to the hotel the next day to collect it I was told the "lost and found department" was closed and they refused to help me. So two days later I returned spoke to another front desk operative who opened a draw at reception only to advise that no charger was there. So much for the lost and found department it was simply a case of opening a draw so not only was I lied to but they had obviously lifted it. Disgusting and no effort made to compensate and e-mail ignored.

Stayed for two nights in a twin room with my son. Spacious room with a clean ensuite. Good size TV and very clean and comfortable beds. Good WiFi signal and a 24hr reception. Very close to all amenities but in a quiet street. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Would def stay here again

The only negative points are there was no bath mat and the whole building could with a lick of paint

The hotel is in a superb location, about 5 minute walk to Kings Cross and St Pancras stations/.
The hotel is a budget hotel, so very basic, no frills, but warm enough and clean enough. TV didnt work, and being on the ground floor, quite noisy. I had an en-suite room, the shower room was also basic but adequate.
If its just a bed you need, this place is OK, and very cheap by London standards.
Bonus of free Wi-Fi too

The room was not cleaned properly and very old furniture needs refurbishing. No aircon which made it unbearable when in room. No access given to wife. No lift had to go up to 3Rd floor with heavy bag. The bedding was clean.
