    Lovely boutique hotel at a great price!
    Great place to stay if you need walking distance/proximity to St. Pancras or King's Cross. Beautifully decorated, small hotel with nicer fixtures than most at this price point. Bathroom was spotless, modern, and had nice toiletries. No lift/elevator, so be warned if you have heavy luggage. My room was on the lower level, so it was very quiet and dark -- good for a restful sleep. Neighborhood may be rougher around the edges than others in London, but daytime is just fine with loads of people around. I walked around solo with no issues from the hotel to the Palace and back.

    Comfy room for London
    Clean , big bed , private modern bath and easy access to st pancreas. remember— rooms are tiny in the GB and Europe . So the photo is the bed taking up the whole room. I expect that after all my European trips . But if you need a proper elevator and a big room — look for more of an an American chain

    Enjoyed our stay.
    We used the hotel for three nights at the beginning and four nights at the end of a three week trip.The room was as expected from reviews and price. It is relitively new furnishing very clean and will kept. All the staff we delt with were excellent. The room was a bit small but considering the price, location, and very friendly staff I would stay again. The grab and go breakfast was a fruit, factory muffin, power bar and boxed juice. With coffee/tea in the room it helps start the day, but not very appetizing .

    Room for One!!!
    I have seen small rooms, but this was small. This room ( #305) was slightly bigger than a sleeping compartment on Amtrak. For the price that i paid ( $90s a night) this was way overprice, if it was in the $60s it would have been a difference story, i had booked " the deluxe single room". There were a travelodge at the end of the street - wonder what were their rates. The guy on the front desk, was very friendly and helpful, so that was good; since i was arriving and leaving by eurostar, the area was on the point, plus the circle train ( it touch every tourist point of interest, was at walking distance. After signing into the Wifi, i was not able to access my email account, it kept taking me to the Facebook signing page.
