Good6.0
Good location, but looks can be deceiving
The hotel is in slightly rougher condition than the photos show. I appreciated the Kings Cross location for its convenience and amenities, but felt the room wasn't thoroughly cleaned, the bathroom not updated and the desk space inadequate for a business traveller.
