Great location. Comfortable clean room.Posted Aug 27, 2014
Really enjoyed my stay. the room was clean and comfortable. Great location to get around central London. Not happy that i had to pay £20 per night more for a room where there was a tiny smoking area just outside the room. i had requested this when booking the room, only to be told abruptly by hotel staff, that a request is not always honoured. I couldn't understand why, when a smoking room was requested that i wasn't given a smoking room, but was then offered one at a hight cost. Most strange.

Great locationPosted Aug 27, 2014
Pros: Location! And cleanliness.
Cons: The front desk staff could be a bit more friendly. They were not rude though.
Location: Location was amazing! Not great food around but again, from either Euston or Kings Cross/St Pancras station you can go anywhere.
The rooms were really small but the location was superb - 5 mins walking in either direction to Euston or Kings Cross/St Pancras stations - you can get virtually anywhere in London from these 2 stations. Was a youth hostel environment but it was private rooms and we did not have any noise problems or anything. The staff were ok but a bit hostile. It was very clean though and quiet and the location is just awesome. Maybe not for families due to the room size (although I do not know if they have bigger rooms as we were on the bottom floor) but definitely people who aren't spending much time in the room but want a bit of comfort for when they are there. Be warned there are no elevators though. This was tough with 2 massive suitcases!

So tiny!Posted Aug 25, 2014
After seeing lovely pictures online we were shocked to see our tiny room - so much so that we had to move furniture to get into the cupboard. The room was opposite the cleaners kitchen which meant it was very noisy from about 7.45 both mornings. The TV was strangely in French language mode and had exceedingly poor reception meaning only two channels were watchable. Tea and coffee was supplied but we had to ask for more in order to have more than one cup each day. Curtains weren't hung correctly and so wouldn't fully close.

Great central locationPosted Aug 25, 2014
Cons: Luggage elevator
Location: As before
Comfortable convenient location with close access to Kings Cross St. Pancras. Stairs could be an issue as there are apartments on 3 floors not including the stairs to the basement for laundry facilities. Bathrooms are a little snug but if reasonably fit and not too overweight, this is the place for you. Apartments are well equipped and functional. Good range of grocery/fruit/veg stores and restaurants nearby also pubs which can become rather boisterous depending on time of week and clientele.

Will stay every future trip to LondonPosted Aug 24, 2014
Pros: Cleanliness and location.
Location: Three tube stops within 5 minutes' walk (two are train stations), about a block from the British library, great chain and local eateries.
5 minutes, safe walk to King's Cross station or Russell Square station or Euston station. Could not ask for a better location. The room was impeccably clean. It was like we were the first guests. These are the two main things I will never compromise on, and the hotel delivered admirably. Stayed in a patio room- no street noise, down one flight of stairs, perfect for two.

Lovely studio close to St PancrasPosted Aug 20, 2014
Pros: Location, comfort
Cons: No lift so many stairs but it is an old building.
Stayed there several times before. Quiet oasis in very busy neighbourhood. Plenty of shops for self catering and restaurants. Many buses and tube very close by to get to anywhere in London.

Compact, efficient room in the heart of LondonPosted Aug 18, 2014
The flat we stayed in was small, but about what we expected for a studio apartment. The facilities make excellent use of the small space provided so it doesn't feel too cramped. For the price, too, it's exactly what you want, if you will spend most of your time outside the apartment. Being so close to King's Cross station was a great asset.

Unfriendly unwelcoming staffPosted Aug 16, 2014
Pros: The location
Cons: Staff needs serious training in good customer care
The room is small, but the bathroom is ridiculously small. Apart from the quiet young man who helped us with the luggage, the front desk man was rude, unhelpful and ignorant.

Close to international train station & tube!Posted Aug 16, 2014
Pros: Very close to all forms of transportation. Very clean.
Cons: Explain how to operate various items in the room like tv and shower - European fawcets are very fancy and or different that American / Canadian styles
Location: Grab a form of transportation and go elsewhere in London.
Check in and out was a breeze. Staff was friendly however not a lot is explained as to how to operate any of the items in the room. Had a trickle shower till I accidentally manipulated a button to give me water pressure... Glad I found that with the first shower! The room is very very small. It's London but... I had to get out of the bathroom to pull up my pants after... Shower head holder was missing so in a 30 inch by 30 inch space with one hand... Hmmmm.... Room was very very clean! Everything one needs to cook and clean up after was provided. We didn't do any of that cause the place was too small to realy do any cooking in... Go out and enjoy London instead! The remote for the tv did not work so we didn't bother with the tv. Again... London at night..!! There were a lot of noisy rowdy guests which kept us up all of one night... Staff does not patrol the area. All in all we had a nice experience and would recommend for a short duration stay. Cheers and enjoy London!
