Small but perfectly functional rooms
Nice little hotel, comfortable bed and all the required amenities in the room. Room was small but perfectly functional for a 1 night stay. Housekeeping let this hotel down unfortunately - rudely awoken by housekeeping walking into room at 8:30 without even a knock at the door.

Weekend stay
Lovely hotel in perfect location from kings cross station. We stayed in room 307, the plug between the beds doesn’t work and there was a strange damp smell coming from the bathroom throughout our stay. But the staff were lovely, friendly and couldn’t do enough for us, iron and ironing board was given on request and facilities in house were great. Only those little items listed were an ‘issue’ but I would definitely recommend this hotel if you’re doing a weekend stay and need a cheap, clean and comfy stay.

Family visit
Very clean and tidy and very friendly and helpful staff. The room was tight with a double and two single beds in it but what I expected at the price. Beds were very comfortable. Only problem was the room had a skylight with no method of covering (blind etc) so we had full daylight in the room from about 6am! When we raised the issue at checkout we were told the room had been recently redecorated and they were waiting for the skylight cover to be fitted so hopefully won't be a problem in the future! I would definitely use the hotel again for a short family budget visit to London. Only a three minute walk from Kings Cross and plenty of places to eat around and about also.
