Good location
Reviewed 3 days ago

Good location near Russell square, British museum and lots of restaurants. Breakfast buffet is good, you can get made to order omelette for no extra charge.

Room was fine though there was not too much room; the bed seemed to take up most of the room.

Better than last time

Enjoyable stay, small corner room, but was clean with a comfy bed. Decent size bathroom. All staff friendly. Close enough to walk to from Euston, also close enough to walk to main tourist areas. Lovey omelettes freshly prepared at breakfast. Also ate in the Marco restaurant one of the nights. Had to send my steak back as I wanted medium and it came cremated, new steak cooked which was lovely.

A Gem

A friend and I stayed here for one night to attend a concert in Leicester Square. The hotel is situated between Russell Square and Holborn Station. The check in staff where lovely. Our twin room was on the second floor. It was very clean, nicely decorated and had very comfortable beds and everything you would want. The hospitality tray even had hot chocolate and decaff coffee. Plenty of toiletries in the bathroom and a hair dryer in the wardrobe..I have read reviews that said the rooms were small, and yes they are, but not a problem for us. The room was also nice and warm. No view but again for us that didn't matter. Breakfast was very good, plenty of cold choices an there was also some very good scrambled egg, fried eggs, sausage and bacon. There is also a menu to choose other items..I did ask for mushrooms and hash browns but was told "non had been delivered" ...also I had to ask for a cup, then some milk...but on the whole the breakfast was very good, and the two ladies working in the restaurant were very helpful . At check out we asked to need about cases for the day and there was no problem , the gentleman who took them was very helpful. ..this hotel will now be our go to hotel for our London trips. We loved it.

Fantastic hotel with the best breakfast!

Stayed here for one night with my mum. We felt the location of this hotel was perfect, within walking distance of kings cross station and many major tourist areas, such as the British museum and Oxford street.
This hotel was immaculate with the staff being very attentive. The rooms were decent sized, very clean with lots of helpful extras included such as an ironing board, iron, tea and coffee facilities, tv and even earplugs to wear. Bathrooms were also very clean with a good powerful shower and heated towel rail which was lovely.
The breakfast was probably one of the best we have ever had while staying in London, it was well thought out and had a vast choice including items cooked to order such as poached eggs or porridge as well as cereals, continental breakfast, fruit and yoghurt and even pancakes!
We will definitely come to stay here again and we will be recommending to friends and family!!

Another great stay.

Stayed two nights (Sat and Sun) in a great room with ensuite. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. The breakfast buffet was good quality and plentiful. Have stayed here before and will stay here again as a great location, easy to reach by tube or walking.
