We stayed here twice either side of a trip to Paris. The staff were lovely and very accomodating, held some bags for us. The area is very convenient for the Eurostar. The kettle had an odd smell when we boiled it so we bought coffee instead.

The location of the hotel is very nice and very convenient if you use the train. The King's cross station is like 3 minutes walk and there's a lot of pubs and restaurants around. The shower room was clean as well as the toilet, but there is no sink in the toilet to wash your hands after you do #2. The television in the room was a big plus. I would say few things I do not like about my stay in this hotel. 1. The room can be extremely cold at night and early morning. Even the window is shut, you can still feel the cold air coming in. I have to use the folding chair in my room to put against the curtain so it'll blocked the cold air to come in. 2. If you need to pee at night time or any time of the day, you have to go one floor up to use the toilet. Yes, the shower and toilet are in different floors. 3. Drunk boys and girls at night arguing outside the hotel was very loud and you can hear it in your room even the windom is shut. All in all the hotel is safe and has front desk till 1am. They provide 2 keys when you checked - in. 1 keys for your room and the other is for the front door if you coming home after 1am.

Excellent for price It’s very cheap for London It’s 4 minutes walk for train station. It has 4-5 lines. You don’t need to transfer for all most every tour attractions in London. It’s really small but we were ok because of high ceiling. Room is so so small. Bed is small also, but comfortable. They clean toilet with blue bleach everyday. I feel comfortable for it.

Beds very uncomfortable, sheets dirty. Towels torn. Curtains not hung properly. Very convenient location for stations, but no excuse to rip people off & charge so much for staying here when facilities are beyond basic.
