could be a great hotel, but...Posted Jun 30, 2015
Pros: The staff varied greatly. The female attendant in the day was very helpful and attentive, the male attendant in the evening was unhelpful, sarcastic.
Cons: Clean the floors, list the distance as 7-10 minutes from tube, more properly align advertised room with actual room
Location: Not too far from Angel tube, but advertised as 5 minutes walk when actually 7-10 briskly (not with child)
the advertised room is not the room you will receive, the rooms are a bit dirty - but the sheets are clean. one bed had a good mattress the second sagged. the staff vary greatly.

Disappointed in the qualityPosted Jun 12, 2015
Pros: The location was excellent for access to Angel Underground Station, a 5 to 10 minute walk, and there were a fair number of restaurants/pubs close by.
Cons: The room were in needs a full examination of the plumbing system and replacement of the washer/dryer. I wouldn't recommend this motel because of this.
Location: The Chapel Street Market was a nice location for foods and trinkets.
My wife and I stayed in this motel for two weeks and were disappointed in the quality of the building. (1) We found the toilet wouldn't flush and complained for three days until a pleasant member of the maintenance staff rebuilt the flushing mechanism to work properly. (2) The combination washer/dryer wouldn't fully dry the clothing even when set at the 140 minute drying period. We were forced three times to take the damp washed clothing to the staff for complete drying and it was returned unfolded stuffed in a plastic bag. (3) Finally, the drain in the shower enclosure didn't quickly drain and we were forced t stand in soapy water before exiting the enclosure. The staff was available and friendly, but wouldn't make any committal comments on how to resolve these problems.

Apartment well situatedPosted May 29, 2015
Pros: I liked that the room was close to the subway and the size of the room (big for London apartment).
Cons: The appliances should be updated and the carpet removed.
Location: You are literally 10 - 15 minutes from major attractions (by subway) like the London Tower and Buckingham Palace.
The apartment building was very close to the subway station (and King's Cross train station), so traveling around London was fairly easy. It was however noisy at night. There were always sirens blaring and street traffic well into the night. The room was very spacious for a European room (had 2 bathrooms!) and the staff was helpful. I didn't like the carpet in the bedroom (it was cleaned but you could see the outline of some big stain that was there before. The washer/dryer handle broke during a wash cycle, but the manager gave us a bottle of wine to compensate for the trouble. Overall, the room was OK, but I would have liked a quieter room.

Big 2-room apartmentPosted May 28, 2015
Stuffy as no air con was provided. Water temperature is not stable, hot and cold at times. Place need a major renovation. Long walk to Angel subway (10 min) but there are a few buses that pass by City Road, Citadines St Mark. There are some nice food near Angel station such as Jamie and Bibigo. And supermarket too.

Solid choice - good for longer staysPosted Apr 24, 2015
Pros: Location for my purposes. Unit size. Cleanliness.
Cons: Better (i.e. softer, fluffier) pillows!
Location: Right on City Road with a couple shops across the way for random snack, drinks, etc. Turkish restaurant, too, which the front desk recommends.
I chose this b/c the price was about the same as standard hotels, and I knew this would be more spacious. I had booked a studio, but was upgraded to a 1BR, albeit in a basement unit. I didn't mind, b/c it was at the back of the building, and thus very quiet, and the deep window wells did let in ample light for my tastes. And because I was only in the room in the late evenings, light didn't matter so much. The unit did not disappoint. Overall, it was very clean, not fancy, but nice. Room by room: Good kitchen, which I hardly used, including in-unit laundry, which I did not use. Living room area is fine, but if you have more than 2 people, someone won't fit on the couch unless you're all very small. TV is large and nice. A DVD player is provided, which I did not use, and I'm not sure if DVDs are provided. Bathroom was smallish, but functional. A review mentioned there's no power socket in the bathroom. However, there is one that's "hidden". It's in the light over the mirror. You have to slide the top right front facing plastic bit. The front top left is basically a large button to turn on the light itself. Perhaps b/cI was in a basement unit, the water pressure was good, and the water, while it took some time, got plenty hot. The temperature gauge on the dial was underestimating by 15-20C, as I was practically scalded at 25. The bedroom was spartan without TV. Pillows were very stiff and flat, so not the best. Bed was firm-ish with some spring to it.

Comfortable and quiet stayPosted Mar 24, 2015 on Hotels
The apartments are in a nice location which is quite quiet. I thought it was close to st pancras which it isn't. We chose to use the 'Boris bikes' which were fab and located right outside. The car park is very secure and the rooms are very comfy and.
