    Nice, clean, practical hotel
    Nice, clean, practical hotel an easy walk from King's Cross/St. Pancras. The rooms are quite small and there is a narrow winding staircase leading to most rooms which is a bit of a challenge with luggage. This hotel is a good value for the cost but has no frills - just the basics you will need. The staff is very kind and helpful.

    Cosy room
    This room would be good for a couple if two travelers intend to stay here. The room is too small for two friends to have any privacy. The walls quite thin though so you can hear anyone walking by the room. Otherwise a good hotel for those on budget. The hotel is very convenient for Eurostar travelers and anyone reaching London via King Cross or St Pancras.

    Superior Basic Hotel
    Ignore the dodgy facade – it's under renovation. Ignore also the hallway and reception. The room is what counts and, for the price, this was a decent room in a central area. Everything was new and, though small, well thought out, like a Z hotel at much less price. Good choice for a basic stay when you're going to be out sightseeing all day anyway.

    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.

    Hotel was being remodeled. The room was new, and we'll laid out. But, it was very small, and had a very musty smell.
