Basement room, shady clerk, no A/C
I didn't stay. I prepaid on Hotels.com when my train was canceled and walked over with my daughter to be horrified by the sketchy hotel I paid over $100 for (non-refundable). I determined it wasn't safe enough for two women traveling alone and left for another hotel. I am out of pocket for the money but my daughters safety is paramount.

clean room close to the public transportation
We stayed four nights. There is no elevator. The room is tiny, but clean. Close to the metro. The hop on bus is leaving from the station but the last one leaves the city too early. Good value for the money.

Close to station, far from safe
I booked here because it was close to Kings Cross station and I had a very early train to catch. However, I will not return. The room was dirty and had resident insects, the neighborhood was not safe - even the taxi driver warned me not to walk around. There was no air conditioning so windows had to be left open to hear the young men doing business outside on the street. I got up and left after 20 minutes.

Not what it says on the Tin!!
This is the first review I have felt needed to be made regarding my stays using Hotels.com. This of course isn't the error of Hotels.com. However, I feel it necessary to highlight that this hotel does not have a bar, restaurant, breakfast facilities or good standard sized rooms, which are stated in the script. The room itself was extremely uncomfortable, the bathroom was the size of a tiny garden shed and had several lights not working. To my amusement, at nearly 5pm whilst checking in, the room cleaners were still cleaning rooms and I had to be moved to a nearby room due to this. There is also no lift to accommodate a 3 storey building for people with luggage. This wasn't an issue for me but disabled people and children would find the stairs extremely difficult. Luckily, I only had to stay for one night as my second work day wasn't required so I could leave early. Overall, not a very pleasant stay.
