Small hotel and service with a smile.”

Location, Clean room

Hotel was small but if you stay in Hotel only to sleep an all of day you are in town it's great value for your money. A short walk from Kings Cross station. The hotel is off the main road in a quieter location makes this hotel ideal for business or pleasure.

Nice Hotel, recently done up and reasonable rate ”

Close to Kings' Cross

The room was small but had everything it required. The recent decoration was good and the rooms and public areas felt more expensive than the hotel was in reality. The location is good and the square in which the hotel sits is quiet at night.

Location, decor, staff

No issues, but in my basement room, lots of noise from banging doors, early morning and late at night, plus poor soundproofing overall, probably inevitable in a hotel that is a modified house rather than built as a hotel originally...

Average. The reception staff first give me the wrong room number. The lights in the room are somewhat complicated to figure out. The bathroom is unacceptable: the wash basin is so tiny that it is almost impossible to use. Some lights were broken.

No safety and and the staff is strange”

After giving us the key the guy at the reception told us not to go out after 11:00PM because it’s not safe. Then They don’t even come and show you the room they just give you the key. There is a strange smell in the hotel. There is a park in front of the hotel and they told us that many dealers are there. In the room there was no shampoo, our window was broken. We suggest you to take « The Megaro Hotel » it’s just next to the tube station and it’s much better.

Location

It was a bad experience, the lobby receptiionist had zero knowlwdge about treating a guest. They had short and sharp answers, no service even for helping the tourist. There was no elevator in the hotel and people would not help carrying the bags, the charged aditional fees for everything. The room was way much more smaller than what the picture showed, 2 bags couldnt be opened at the same time. The bed was bad. There was this weird sound/ noice, we thought were the water pipes. All night long!! After all, the worst was the service! 2 men at the front desk treated so bad!

Poorest hotel ever.”

Nice clean beds. A carpet covered the loose footsteps on the stairway and made it an experience to climb them never nowing which where the dangereous ones. Nice to have a fridge in the room. Even nicer had it been possible to get into it.
Very small, damp and smelly rooms, no remote for the tv, no hot wather in the showers - if any wather at all. No sink in the toilet rooms. Matresses with the springs sticking in your back all night. Watherpipes making noises all night. Hostile service if any service at all. Breakfast was uneatable. Just outside the upper floors windows there were litter of all sorts; mackerel cans, beer bottles and paper.

If you go to London stay out of this hotel.Its relatively expensive compared to what you get. The staff is unfriendly if not hostile and speaks very poor english. You'd rather go to a youth hostel, - this is NOT A HOTEL.

Son unique point positif: son emplacement pratique”

Hotel d'apparence classe et moderne (sur le site notamment). Très bien situé venant de saint Pancras. 3 minutes à pied. Facile à trouver, quartier plutôt tranquille et stations de métro proches. Toutefois, chambre double hélas très petite, sans chaise, sans sèche cheveux comme présenté sur le site, pas de gel douche et shampoing non plus, une bouilloire (très) sale, un carré douche sale également. Le tapis de bains retrouvé en boule trempé dans la douche (????). Enfin, une équipe d'accueil désorganisée, peu agréable et parfois totalement absente de la réception. Arrivée à l'hôtel à 15h, je monte dans ma chambre.... aspirateur par terre, chambre pas faite du tout. Dans les escaliers, pendant 4 jours, aspirateur et balais sont restés posés... Rapport qualité / prix pas intéressant du tout. Nous aurions préféré, pour le même ordre de prix, loger dans un hôtel propre.

punto strategico ma attenzione alla stanza!”

posizione: a meno di 5 minuti a piedi dalla stazione di King's Cross; tranquillità: è in un quartiere abbastanza defilato dal traffico; prezzo: buono

Appena arrivati ce la siamo visti davvero brutta: non ci hanno sistemati al Melville, bensì all'Albion (sono diversi alberghi collegati) in una camera microscopica con il letto da una piazza e mezza addossato al muro da una parte e con 50 cm di spazio dall'altra occupati però da un "armadietto" e un "tavolino", bagno ancora più microscopico con soffione della doccia praticamente sopra al water! Non si può dire che fosse terribile quanto ad arredamento e pulizia, ma era come stare in un loculo, non ci si poteva muovere!! Sono scesa subito a lamentarmi e mi hanno detto che al momento erano pieni e il mattino dopo c'avrebbero cambiato stanza... Per fortuna così è stato, altrimenti avremmo dovuto cercare un altro posto e provare a farci rimborsare! La nuova era una camera normale, decisamente più vivibile e con un bagno decente, anche se devo dire che il lavandino, in entrambe le camere, era davvero troppo piccolo (forse un 20x30 cm). Non avevamo la colazione compresa, per cui non saprei valutarla; comunque in questa zona ci sono moltissimi locali per cui non è un problema farla fuori. La zona è davvero strategica, perchè da questa stazione si prende metro o treno e si arriva praticamente ovunque ed è ricca di negozi e locali dove mangiare.
