                Close to St Pancreas International

                Dingy, grubby and very noisy

              • Group of friends
                6.6

                The hotel is situated close to large communication node: buses, underground, rail. Everything is close, but the hotel located at the Argyle Square (which is a small park) still manages to be peaceful and quiet.

                The room was nice and cozy, but we had some problems with bathroom door. It was a sliding door that happened to stuck and was difficult to close or open without help from the other side. Also it would be nice to have Internet connection in the hotel.

              • Single
                8.8

                breakfast could have had some yoghourt and muesli and maybe brown toast.

              • Single
                5.0

                Convenient location for city centre and stations

                Poor room, lack of bed side lights, television on top of wardrobe, door could only be locked from inside.

              • Couple
                4.2

                Excellent location and daytime staff were friendly.

                Room was very poor. Bathroom was the worst I've experienced in a hotel. Wash basin was situated in the room itself and not in the bathroom. Bulb missing above the wash basin and no toilet roll holder which meant that the toilet roll was wet from being on the floor when we arrived. Night porter was not very friendly. Overall disappointing and poor value for money - would not recommend it to others.

                Breakfast was good and thanks for serving it before 7am as I had a train to catch at 730.

                Bad points- Dont get the top floors as the shower/water pressure is so low i didnt bother having a shower before work.As i had to travel 3 hours on a train and then straight into work this was,nt an ideal start to the day.

                Location to the train station

                The toilet doors were frosted glass with large gaps around the edge

              • Group of friends
                8.8

                Fantastic value for money. Most efficient breakfast service I've ever had! So convenient for Kings Cross / St Pancras. I stayed 2 nights and slept well both nights.

                No tea or coffee making facilities or hairdryers in rooms.

              • Single
                7.4

                I was only in London 1 night, the hotel staff were very good, the room was comfortable and near to the railway station and the breakfast was excellent

                Clean & convenient

                Shower totally fixed, ie can't move it to rinse nether regions!

              • Group of friends
                7.0

                The staff was very friendly and helpful. I used the office computer to retrieve a voucher I had for got to print since they did not yet have wireless Internet. Any question I asked was courteously answered.

                I know buildings are old and remodled, but I found the steep narrow stairs difficult although they had honored my request for a lower floor. Carrying even mid-size luggage up the steep and winding stairs was rough. I had read this in the reviews of others and chose to stay anyway. Still I hope they will try to find a way for a lift.

              • Group of friends
                6.6

                this was a pleasant hotel very well located near to St Pancras station. full English breakfast very good

                there was no facility for tea or coffee making in either the room or the reception area, nor even a water cooler. I think this should be made clear in the listing. the sink was not in the shower / toilet room and there was nowhere in the shower room to hang clothing

              • Family with children
                8.8

                The rooms were tidy and clean, every day clean towels, breakfast was good, and the reception staff was helpfull.

                Location - very near St Pancras International

                Cold room

              • Older travelers
                6.2

                The staff in the dinning room were excellent. They were quick, polite and very helpful.

                We were not told that there was no lift and as elderly people wwe would not have booked with you had we known as wwe were in Room 19 and this meant carry heavy cases up two flights.
