Okay, but not greatPosted May 21, 2015
Pros: Location, location, location. The hotel is between two Tube stations (King's Cross and Russell Square) and there is a Waitrose grocery nearby.
Cons: The rooms need to be formatted differently to optimize space. They could also stand be a little larger.
Location: Lots of places to eat with great variety. The Charles Dickens Museum and the British Museum are within walking distance, too.
Studios2Let is in Bloomsbury, an area I knew well from a previous trip to London, so the hotel is where I wanted to stay. That is the main reason I picked this hotel. The pictures made the room look very inviting and homey. Upon arrival, we discovered that our terrace room was on the ground floor, and the hotel does not have an elevator, which made taking our luggage down a flight of stairs difficult. Once inside the room, we discovered how very small it truly was. The bed was not large enough for two people. The bathroom was not big enough to turn around in, but it was functional and we always had plenty of hot water. The television is also placed in an odd position, so watching it was difficult. Overall, I would recommend this hotel IF you plan on staying in a room by yourself. I do recommend getting the terrace because it certainly adds some much needed space. Please note that there was road work going on nearby, but we were on the back part of the hotel and never heard it. Also, their laundry dryers will not get the clothes dry, and they cut off at 8 p.m. There is a laundry around the corner from the hotel that stays open late. The location truly is the best part of the hotel.

Great for long-term staysPosted May 18, 2015
We only stayed 4 days, but wanted a way to cook meals so this was perfect. Our room was small but super-efficient. I love the sparse, functional design. Bed was comfortable, kitchen was suitably furnished with dishes, etc. Small issues: 1. Shower has no flat space for putting shampoo/conditioner containers or bar of soap. There should be a couple of small corner shelves installed for this purpose. 2. There is a glass shelf over the bathroom sink which gets in the way when you try to brush your teeth or wash your face. It should be moved to the side. The sink is very small so you do have to lean over it. 3. There was no place in the bathroom to put toiletries, other than the aforementioned glass shelf. We moved a small round table from the kitchen area, meant to be the dining table I assume, into the bathroom. Worked great. 4. They should have written instructions in the room for how to lock the door. It's a little tricky if you haven't used this particular type before. 5. There were no additional trash bags or extra rolls of toilet paper in the room. We had to go to the main office to ask for them. 6. The cabinets in the kitchen are installed way too high. They could be moved down a good 10 inches and still be high enough. Be aware that there is no hair dryer in the room. Not a problem for me, but good to know. Overall we were pleased. The location for touring downtown London was excellent.

Small As Expected But Location Location LocationPosted May 16, 2015
Pros: Location within 10 minutes maximum walking to ten different tube lines, plus, railroad and Eurostar..Could travel anywhere in the world from your room
Cons: Maybe provide a small two place folding table and chairs for eating off of...???
Location: Transportation plus many stores and restaurants within 7 minutes walk.
Room had everything we needed for a weeks stay, completely equipped kitchen and bathroom and bed area that was clean, and modern. Staff were always available to help if needed. Wake Up Calls, Directions, Setting Up WiFi, With a Smile!. Room small but we only needed for sleeping and some cooking.

Great location, very small room, well conditionedPosted May 16, 2015
Pros: Great location, everything in perfect conditions
Cons: Cannot be improved, rooms almost ridiculously small.
One night stay due to work meetings. Very convenient location, smooth check in (although they did have any money for change, it was either card or cash as the exact amount and I was luck to have the exact amount), very small room, toilet, and terrace, although everything in perfect condition and very well equipped. Very good value for money considering competetitors

Studio lilliputien bien situé.Posted May 14, 2015
Pros: L'emplacement *****
Cons: Changer de personnel et les matelas ainsi que des travaux d'entretien sur le bâtiment.
Location: Très près de la gare St-Pacras et du métro Russel Square, donc toutes les attractions du centre de Londres ont été visité grâce à la Oyster Card.
Très très petit studio, propre. Cuisine avec un four mais très peu équipé d'accessoires. Matelas inconfortable (plus haut sur les coté qu'au centre), fenêtre qui ne fermait pas entièrement avec des nuits à 6C. Localisation excellente, bon quartier, marché d'alimentation à proximité ainsi que 2 stations de métro et une gare. Le personnel n'est pas serviable et la politique est "ne me déranger pas". La semaine suivante nous étions dans un studio "Citadines" à Bruxelles où le personnel était d'une gentillesse et d'une générosité de conseils extraordinaire, tout le contraire des employés du Studio 2 Let.

Sentral beliggenhetPosted May 14, 2015
Jeg fikk et lite rom i kjelleretasjen med vindu ut mot søppellageret og trappen som leder opp til gateplan. Ikke særlig sjarmerende utsikt, så de hvite gardinene var nede hele tiden. Og siden gardinene er helt lyse så blir det tidlig lyst på rommet om morgenen. Badet er veldig lite, og dusjkabinettet er på størrelse med det som er i bobiler, små forhold. Det var rent og pent på rommet, og eget kjøleskap og vannkoker. Hotellet er nok ikke mitt førstevalg ved neste London-tur.

It was spacious for a studio. Clean and comfortablPosted May 14, 2015
I was happy with the booking. It had all the amenities and was five minutes away from three different tube stations. Was worth the visit. I would stay again!

Budget hotel close to train stations.Posted May 14, 2015
Pros: The location and the quietness of the rooms at the back.
Cons: Install a lift.
Location: Good transport links, train, bus and underground. Supermarkets and cafes 5 - 10 minutes walk away.
Room on the second floor was very light bright, overlooking the rear. Very quiet. 3 large windows. Kitchen area was good except sink was badly placed and was difficult to reach. Bathroom was very small, shower cubicle tiny. For this reason I would not recommend it and wouldn't stay there again. No lift, stairs narrow for carrying luggage. Bed wasn't very comfortable. Linens all good. Luggage holding area not really secure although there are probably enough staff around to keep an eye on it.

A good service apartment but not perfect.Posted May 13, 2015
Pros: Close to St Pancras, very helpful front desk, quiet environment, big supermarket nearby, transportation was plentiful with many choices. Free Laundry.
Cons: Around the clock laundry, daily room service. Detail walking direction from the stations ahead of time.
Location: Not much, great for Eurostar especially if you have early or late schedules.
The hotel is right near Kings Cross and St Pancras which are good for the tube and Eurostar but you'll most likely take the tube/bus to the major tourist attractions or shopping. Therefore be prepared to buy your multi-day tube pass. It's a little challenging to find the place therefore if you arrive after dark, do your homework ahead of time so that you know how to walk there. Don't expect big neon sign for the hotel, you'll have to use the exact address to locate it. The room is small compare to US standard but acceptable, if you had kids, it might be challenging. Though they provide onsite free laundry, the facility is open between 8:00am-8:00pm therefore it's useless to us unless you plan to do your laundry during the day. Unfortunately, there is no elevator at the hotel, therefore we had to haul the luggage up the narrow stairs. There are restaurants nearby but we certainly would prefer more choices. Instead, we always eat elsewhere before we returned to the hotel. On the bright side, we enjoyed the staff and the in room kitchen facilities so that we can buy food/drink from the supermarket instead of eating out every meal. The place was clean and we can replenish toiletries from the front desk if needed. While close to the busy transportation hub, the hotel was off the main room and was quiet for a good night sleep.

Nice place conveniently locatedPosted May 12, 2015
We stayed at Studios2Let for 5 nights. Our check-in and check-out were efficient. Room amenities were very good. The kitchen was well-equipped. The property is close to Kings Cross, the British Library, The British Museum, and grocery shopping. Theatre land is also within a short distance.
