Excellent place and conveniently located.
Very good and no complaint. Two thumbs up!
Siu-Pok, us2 night family trip
Fair 4.0
I'd look elsewhere if I were you
Plus Points: 1) Relatively clean room (even though the ensuite bathroom has a weird odour) 2) Close to train station and underground Minus Points: 1) Very tiny room. The bathroom has a weird system where the water supply for the shower is controlled by a button switch located outside the bathroom. There's no tap to turn for the shower. It took me awhile to figure out how to get the water running and I couldn't call the reception (see point 3 below) 2) No elevator and very narrow staircase. My room was on the 3rd floor. It's a struggle going up and down the stairs especially with luggage in tow 3) My room is at 20, Argyle Street (which is across the street from the property marked Alhambra Hotel where the reception is located). There is no telephone in the room. So, there's no way to contact the reception except by climbing down the stairs and crossing the street. Really inconvenient. 4) A couple of staff (especially this white woman) were very unfriendly. That woman whom I saw at the breakfast area 'greeted' me with a scowl when I said 'good morning'. She didn't even show me to a table (we were supposed to wait to be seated). I sat myself down. Then an Asian-looking woman came - she was very friendly and smiling all the way - to take my order for coffee and toast 5) The breakfast is very basic. It's not worth climbing down the stairs and crossing the street and to go down the stairs once more (the breakfast area is one level down from the reception on the ground floor).

Great location
Very convient location, across street and a few steps away from St Pancras / Kings Cross station, one block away from British library. It includes breakfast. Staff are friendly and helpful. Room is small, just for sleep,but that is within the expectation.
