I’d definitely return
Service was personal and competent Food was amazing. View from floor 10 bar was stunning. Tv reception was dodgy.
Joanne, gb1 night business trip
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!

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.
