    Clean and Cosy
    Very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was okay but could do with improvement. Enjoyed the stay.

    It's ok, but nothing special.
    Hotel located in a bit of a back street, which was very poorly lit. Close to Kings Cross station so good for that. The room itself was ok, though pretty cramped. Piles of cases and stocks of water etc outside our room and off the small corridor. Not keen on giving us a 2nd key to our room even though we arrived at different times, but eventually caved in. Don't build your hopes up and you won't be too disappointed. It's ok, but that's as good as it gets.

    Choose a room at the back
    Compact, clean room fitted out nicely. Unfortunately we were on the road with very large single glazed windows which made it very noisy.

    Small, Clean, Great Location
    The location is very close to St Pancras and King's Cross stations so travel within London and in/out of town by train is convenient. Hotel staff was friendly. Rooms were small but clean and modern.
    Kevin, us3 night trip

    Clean, friendly but really noisy.
    The hotel is a comfortable stay for one night to transfer between trains from Kings Cross. The hotel is very noisy and the staff were not quiet during the morning cleaning/checkout process. Got a lower ground floor and had a lot of road noise. It was clean and relatively comfortable.
