Neat! The brutalist architecture was really unique and recognizable, and the Banksy on the building was a nice surprise. Very kind and professional staff, and a very comfortable room. Would definitely stay here again!

I liked the design on the common areas downstairs. There were some interesting touches like the antique 70s furniture and the way the books in the library were organized into sections by emotion. On the 6th floor, the corridor carpeting was horrible and paychedelic and the corridors maze-like and claustrophobic. They need to improve. A different carpet and better lighting and art and overall more expensive finishes and recessed lights. It looks like a ferry now, not like a high end brutalist building. The mattresses were good. And the hotel was soundproof between rooms and to the busy roads outside. But the baths were sub par in our uniy #618 a double. The lime green faucets / taps in the bath needed to be replaced. It was impossible to get cold water. Our room had no overhead shower, only a flimsy handheld shower with maybe 20 open holes in it and no pressure. And the bar was installed low and not good for tall people.The extra powder room was welcome but there was no soundproofing in any of the bathrooms and the powder room had no sink to wash hands. I realize that this may be because it had been built for wheelchair access, but still. Not nice to have to touch handles etc and wait for the bath to be free before being able to wash hands. No free bottled water was provided for the guests on arrival only tiny bottles in the minibar for purchase. I would expect free water every day in this price range.

We took an interior room with no windows - no problem! It had creative features and met all our needs for our one-night stay before our train trip to Edinburgh. The hotel is right across from King’s Cross railroad station - super convenient. The windowless room was like being in an interior stateroom on a cruise ship. We had a wonderful sleep - it was so dark and quiet. The staff were very helpful too.

3/5 Okay

Disliked: Staff & service
It's all about the location and the physical space of the rooms. Close to St. Pancras and Kings Cross stations so it's convenient for ongoing transport by train. The decor and vibe is very stylish but the feeling is ruined by a lack of consideration for the typical Standard Hotel guest. It was annoying to arrive for breakfast at the hotel restaurant for breakfast at 10:30--only to be told they were setting up for lunch (on a Saturday morning!) Several other guests were turned away at the same time. The only thing on offer were pastries and coffee. the host and wait staff had to be hailed repeatedly for the above. I was told to sit in the bar area at a huge unset table. I had to fetch my own napkin from the barista (despite mentioning to other staff). No flatware given. There was no mention of this tight time-frame upon check-in and nothing in the room literature--indeed, the only mention is that the restaurant is open all day.
