    1 check-in here

    Okay, let's be honest, this is not a five star hotel, but this place exceeded my expectations and I would happily stay here again - so a 5 full stars.. My mom and I were coming in for a night from Paris via the Eurostar and I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a place, since we were already paying for a night in our Paris apartment. I paid 99 pounds for a two single bed room with private bathroom.

    The first great thing about this hotel is it's location. It's right across the street from St. Pancras and King's Cross stations. It was great that we didn't have to waste time getting from the train to the hotel and vice versa on the way back. It's also great because Kings Cross has a tube station making it super convenient to get around.

    Check in was easy, and the lady at reception was very lovely. To our surprise our room was ready so we could go in, drop our bags and freshen up before hitting the town. The room was tiny, but clean and had a nice flat screen TV, a closet and a kettle for making tea (and instant coffee).

    Breakfast is included so in the morning they will serve you up a full English breakfast  or a continental breakfast depending on what you chose, along with all the toast you could want.

    They stored out bags for us for the day after checking out and were nice enough to let us add things to it after I did a bit too much shopping to handle carrying around.

    Oh, I forgot to mention, but wifi is included in the room rate, which is awesome.

    I would recommend this place to anyone wanting an inexpensive spot in London, and it really is convenient if your are coming in via Paris.

    First to Review

    This is a great place to stay as it is so close to Kings Cross Station and central London and it's good value for a city hotel (we paid £65 for both of us, including breakfast). The rooms are small but pleasantly furnished and with a tiny en-suite as well. Many of the rooms are actually across the road in a different building from the Reception desk. If you have a bedroom on that side you need to go over the road in the morning for breakfast. There is a small dining room near the Reception and quite a hearty breakfast on offer with several choices, some vegetarian ones as well. Nice friendly staff too.

    We stayed in the summer, on the hottest day of the year. Londoners loved it, but we were expecting something cooler. Thankfully they gave us a fan, which droned out the sound of the kids in the school yard behind the room. We stayed in the rooms across the street. Small but OK room. This is nicely located near Kings Cross and St Pancras stations, we walked to the British Museum. Food nearby, nice pubs away from the main drag. Breakfast was big, overflowing plates.
