Cheap and convenient
The location - close to Kings Cross railway station - was ideal for me and the receptionist was very polite and efficient on check-in. At £40 for the Sunday night, it offered excellent value for money.
A minor gripe would be that the breakfast is a little basic; otherwise, I was very satisfied with what was on offer here.

The last two times the milk was not fresh - it tasted like UHT.

Barely fit for purpose
Room was dingy on lower ground floor but clean. The safe didn't work, the TV didn't work and there was no hot water in the morning for a shower. I can understand why they take payment up front.

Staffing
I found the two owners that greeted me to be very accommodating and helpful. The two Romanian girls that ran the restaurant were extremely friendly too with SMILES. Smiles you somehow do not see much of in the service industry in England compared to my own experiences in my home country of Canada,

Good location and very quiet but room very tired and needs updating
I chose this hotel due to its convenient location, near to stations but also on a side street to be away from the busy Euston Road traffic. On this front the hotel delivered, it was quiet and I got a good nights sleep. The staff were friendly on arrival but the room left a lot to be desired. It was compact, which was fine, I wouldn't have expected anything else and the bedding was very clean. However, the bathroom was very tired, with mould between tiles, a cracked sink. The room also has a very strange smell about it but it was a basement room and therefore could have been the problem. Overall my stay was comfortable enough for one night.
