This hotel is very fairly priced and this has been my second visit in the last two years. The location is great, within walking distance to most of the tourist destinations. The room is well equipped with a nice bathroom, reasonably sized tv and bed with a nice solid mattress which is what I personally prefer, although I understand why some people may find it uncomfortable. The only downsides are the very poorly sealed windows which let in a lot of noise and the outside of the building is definitively not inviting. But at the end of the day I’m very happy with what I received for the price paid.

If it wasn't for the extremely uncomfortable beds this would have been a great stay. This hotel's in a great location being so close to Euston/King's Cross. It is surprisingly nice inside, and the rooms are furnished well with nice decor, though there's a lot of noise from outside the building and minimal insulation from the old windows. The springs in the bed were poking me all night - I ended up using a spare duvet as a mattress topper. Wouldn't stay again just because of that alone. Service was good and staff are friendly, though I had a wait for breakfast and stocks weren't great and took a while to be replenished.
