Great hotel and location. Amazing bed!
This was our second stay at the hotel. The king size bed is super comfy!! Great layout of the room, lovely big bath tub and great shower with nice toiletries. Maybe the mini bar is too good... oops!! ;) Great location for travel. Lovely cocktails in the bar and tasty food. All round top hotel. We will be highly recommending!!

I’d definitely return
Service was personal and competent Food was amazing. View from floor 10 bar was stunning. Tv reception was dodgy.

Good 6.0
Not up to 5-star standard!
Very excited about staying at The Standard and a real treat. However, it didn’t quite live up to flawless luxe expectation. Were we just unlucky? Well, we will probably never find out!? Food in restaurant cold. Was replaced and not charged but it had already ruined the experience as we ended up not eating together. The manager did come over at the end and tried his best to put things right. Fair enough. All ok... but not really. It was also very disappointing that the menu in the restaurant was the same as when they first opened over eight months ago! The room interior was fab and bed super comfy BUT toilet door didn’t shut properly, flush didn’t stop but had to be stopped manually, volume button on tv remote Didn’t work and annoying having to pull out the plug of the lamp in order to use the hairdryer!?! Finally, there is a roof terrace with an amazing view which sadly you can not go up to in the morning. And it was a sunny blue sky morning too!

Did overnight stop found all staff friendly and extremely helpful. Hotel is really good, had a cosy room, no window, but perfect for our stay. Standard of room facilities cleanliness space and comfort excellent. Will certainly be going back.

Above the usual Standard
Fantastic me place to stay and convenient for Kings Cross. Staff very friendly and helpful and upgraded my room for free. Excellent room facilities. Particularly liked the casting option on TV. Only criticism was shower a bit basic and underpowered for such a high class venue.

Laptops banned in the library lounge after 6pm
They have a policy of not allowing laptops in the lounge after 6. Not great if you’re travelling on business.

Good hotel, but didn’t like the windowless room.
Stayed in the windowless cosy room. Didn’t like it, weirded me out. Not nice, not having a window. Kind staff and they did ask me if I didn’t want an upgrade.

Fantastic First Stop at The Standard
Brilliant first stay here - great check in experience and assistance, and complimentary upgrade too. Room was outstanding - massively spacious, funky, great bed, shower, working space etc.. my base in London moving forward. Didn't try breakfast or bar but both looked great too.
