they charged extra for almost every normal service that would be expected as standard. extra to use the room safe, extra to store suitcase for a few hours after checkout, extra for using a debit or credit card from a non-uk bank. PATHETIC

The only thing was good it was warm enough.

The noise was unbelievable, the shower was blocked and on the floor was so much long black hair.

October 2013

I was unable to travel to London on the day and sent an e mail to the hotel to advise. So far I havn't had a response re any compensation....(2 days later)

Breakfast was ok. Relatively calm, only 5 mins footwalk to King's Cross.

Very cheap hotel, don't expect anything. Rooms VERY simple and not clean, the bathroom was dirty. They charge you an extra fee of 3.5% for paying with a credit cards!?!

Cost effective in a good location close to Kings Cross station.

Receptionist advised me to turn the valve anticlockwise to turn the heating on. I did this and the radiator came on. The problem was the room was freezing cold and it wasn't until the morning that the room warmed up. The en suite shower/wc never warmed up. Luckily there were 2 extra blankets in the cupboard which kept most of me warm (except my nose). Having travelled a long way I was too tired to complain further.

Natural bed linen, no plastic windows. Thanks for that! Kettle, tea, coffee and sugar bags. Thanks. Taxi (a nice driver, thanks to the nice boy!) Normal TV on the desk, in other hotels it is high by the ceilings. Thanks. The room was warm on the first days, but cold later...

Additional money demanded for my stay, 44 pounds. The pay for the first night taken though it was promised not to take money from my credid card. I was shocked. AWFULLY NOISYnights, loud shouts for hours, I suspect the stuff, in Asian languages. The only night I could sleep was New Year, most probably, all noisers ran to the Thames to watch fireworks. No towel one day. Nasty breakfast, so monotonous. In Paris I was in one star hotel, and the breakfast was gorgeous. No star for this hotel. Quite dirty..
