    It was very close to the station and center of London.

    It wasn't clear that the rooms weren't en-suite and the rooms were tiny, literally barely able to put our suitcases down. Also the bed had broken springs and was very uncomfortable.

    Good

    The room was clean, the bed linen fresh and the bathroom immaculate. But the room was tiny, the bathroom so small one needed to have the bathroom door open when using the toilet. Equally, breakfast was at another hotel a hundred yards or so away - the food was fine but very basically presented.

    Small room

    Very good

    Adequate & comfortable hotel. When I stayed I had to go across the road to another hotels small funny room for breakfast & ended up waiting in the street for 15mins as they had no space.

    Breakfast facilities when I stayed. Also no complimentary toiletries, ie shower gel or shampoo.

    They were clean rooms. I was surprised that I needed to go to another hotel to have breakfast. It was a very small breakfast room and very few choices for breakfast.... They had mix coffee for hot water and white bread so low quality food. There was not enough tables for the guests. For the high prices I payed it was not worth it. Also I needed to iron my shirts and i had to iron at the reception and not in my room. The hotel rooms I stayed in were very comfortable, new and very clean. It was also very close to St. Pancreas train station and tube.

    The price was so high for the quality of the hotel. Breakfast room was too small and we needed to cross the street to go there... Quality of the food wasn't so great unless you are used to folgers coffee mix and white bread.

    I stayed here for one night, I had just arrived from France. I could not comment on the facilties as I arrived very late and left quite early the next day. The location is excellent for Transport links. The room was as advertised, and was quite small but it was clean, the bed linen was a nice quality and the shower room/toilet had been recently refurbished and was clean and fresh. I would use this hotel again, I hope that it keeps up this standard.

    Friendly and helpfull staff. Small but functional and quiet room with modern design and good technical equipment.

    The reception would need a renovation in the modern style & atmosphere of the rooms. Breakfast was served outside in very small souterrain room of a nearby hotel.

    Superb

    it was fantastic for its price and covinience. i lived in room 42-39*, i think this room can be accomadated by three persons instead of two. all facilities are new and clean. compared with one of three-star hotels nearby i once stayed, it is better not only on pirce but also on facilities. the staff are all friendly. They look after my bags even after I check out.i will strongly recommended to my friends.

    decoration style make me feel something unfinished.

    Ideally situated near Kings Cross Station, in a quiet Square, perfect for sight seeing in London convenient for using Underground tube stations, will use it again.

    Fabulous

    The room was recently renovated and had everything we needed. Well located and quiet.

    The entrance foyer needs attention as initial impressions aren't good

    Very good

    Very comfortable room and a comfortable bed.

    Having to walk in the snow to another hotel for breakfast. However, it was in the winter months and the snow was unusual for the time of year.The breakfast was most satisfactory considering it was continental breakfast and the staff courteous.
