The House of Toby
The hotel was lovely. The room was on the small side but was stylish and nice. I especially liked the breakfast meal that they provided.

The House of Toby
Very nice receptionist helped us with our bags and key. It was around 10pm do this was appreciated. Easy to find and classy for Kings Cross and the price. Had a little double room out in the courtyard which was quaint. Slight evidence of mildew in room but no smell, poor ventilation when fitted perhaps. Breakfast is help yourself croissants, fruit and cereal bars, fruit pyoderma expect more for the price. Clean.

Potential but definitely average
the Hotel was ok and I accept it was a NYE day so the price I paid may have been disproportionate to what this hotel would ordinarily charge. However, on arrival there was no one at reception, we waited a while and I ended up having to find someone downstairs. The corridors were cluttered, the room was ok but very cramped but had an annoying beep outside the room constantly. I liked the hotel staff who were friendly but more in a way matey way than hotel ‘how can we help you way’. I don’t mind this but I suspect it would annoy others. An example being having to carry your own ironing board from reception with your bags to the room. With all that said, I would personally stay here if it was just me needing a bed and nothing more. It was just a night out with my wife so definitely not any good then.

Facilities can be done better
Location to Tube/Railway station is unexpectedly far. Room is clean but small. Sorry to say the Extremely SLOW wifi which is hardly found in most areas I have been in London during my trip.

Very Good8.0
The room is quite small for the price. And there is no complimentary mineral water. However, the bed is comfortable to our liking. Good for perhaps 1 night stay.
