    Will stay again!”

    I booked this hotel on the same day even i had booked a hostel already. Because of I got 2 big pieces of luggage the staff let in stay on the ground floor which is so sweet. And the staff in reception is friendly and kindly guided me. The location is perfect coz it is just a few meters walk from King Cross Station, which allowed me to travel to Cambridge through train easily. I will choose this hotel again if I visit London again!

    You get what you pay for”

    It is an easy walk to St Pancras station. The price was good. The major down side related to comfort. The first room we were put in most have been 27 or 28 degrees and we could not open the window; it was cool outside. The person at the desk was very nice and moved us but you might not be that lucky, there was another room open. The 5 pound breakfast was not worth it, go to a coffee shop. The "croissants" were some sort of strange pastry wrapped in plastic bags. The coffee was acceptable but not up to the standards of local shops.

    Great location just 5min walk from King's Cross Station where you can easily take underground or International train to Europe country. Many food nearby and the staff is friendly. But we stayed at the last room on ground floor, too cold during the night and there is only 1 heater that far away from the bed. We almost freeze-up on the bed during a cold winter night. Other than the poor heater, everything is fine.

    Smallest room I've ever stayed in”

    I have stayed So Park in Battersea twice, but needed something closer to central London. So Kings Cross has no lifts, no airconditioning, tiny rooms. Our room space was terrible, vacant floor space around the bed was 30 cm at the end and 80 cm width. You open the door and you are on the bed. Bathroom much the same. Probably ok if you are there one night and don't have much luggage, not cheap either, 3 nights AUD 830.

    I would have paid more to get a better place! ”

    I know hotel rooms in London are very expensive. But this particular one was really old. I would call it a hostel rather than a hotel. It was a really small room that I had. Quite not the same as the photos shown on Agoda. My room has a window but it's facing the street on G/F. I saw there are some more rooms in the basement but I don't know how they look like inside.
