Hip, modern, and warm, without feeling pretentious. This hotel is an excellent value considering hotel prices in London. The location is stellar with a main transportation hub right outside the front door. Super easy to get anywhere in the city via public transport, including the airports. No need for expensive Ubers and I got around much quicker anyway! Every staff member that I encountered was genuinely friendly and professional with all requests taken care of. I stayed for 3 nights in a standard King room. The bed was by far the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. Fully stocked mini bar with solid options, true blackout shades, great shower, and fun room design. I ate at the main level restaurant for breakfast and a quick dinner. All meals were incredible. Highly recommend the eggs your way w cheese which comes on top of sourdough toast. The library lounge is a nice area to chill or catch up on some work. The gym was equipped well enough to get a good workout in. I honestly cannot think of any negatives. Why pay double or triple? Truly a great value and will stay here again next time I am in town.

Stayed here back to back weekends for work and loved my stay. Location is perfect, kings cross was a great place to stay and directly across from the train stations and many taxis. The service was wonderful, my second weekend they surprised me with champagne in my room. Everyone was friendly, food and room service was good and quick. The view and windows in my room were very nice, had a view of the st Pancras clock tower. Great restaurants in the hotel. Will stay here every time I visit London!
