Wouldn’t recommend if you have a baby/toddler
The hotel looks nice at a glance but needs a lot of touching up - scuffs on paintwork, dirty round edges of room. It is great that it had a hairdryer but it was attached too closely to the wall and you have to sit on the floor to do your hair. We stayed at the hotel with a baby. Our room was in the basement which is quite a tight stairway and difficult to get a buggy down to. There were no high chairs at breakfast and my son had to sit on my lap to eat. I wouldn’t suggest staying here if you have a baby/toddler. We were also woken at 5am with a scratching sound coming from the ceiling, sounded like an animal scratching around.

Exceptional 10.0
Very small single room but very adequate for one night stay. Clean, comfortable and modern. Excellent bathroom. Adequate continental breakfast. Less than 10mins walk from St Pancras/Kings Cross. Reception happily let me leave my holdall after checkout , to pick up later

Run down
Hotel was run down, flakes of paint missing off the walls on the stairs. Room was really cold as the breeze was coming through the windows. Lumps and bumps in the carpet which could of been a trip hazard. Wouldn't stay here again although good location from King's Cross
Kyle, gb1 night family trip
Poor 2.0
The pictures are misleading. The room was like a shoe box. The hotel was an absolute dump. Poor cleanliness and the room stank. Would avoid this hotel at all costs.

Very good! So happy!
The room was so lovely, modern, tidy and clean. The only downside was a small drain smell from the bathroom but after the bathroom had been used to shower the smell disappeared. The staff were friendly and accommodating with 24hour reception and gave us the opportunity to check out late. Very happy with our stay!
