Good Value and Clean with friendly staff
We wanted a basic one night stopover befor catching the Eurostar train to the Continent from St Pancras Stn , 5 minutes stroll on foot away from this hotel .
Located like many others in the area in what were once posh family houses , the rooms are a fraction on the cramped side due to having to jam an en-suite loo+shower room into each former room , but it was clean and comfortable , friendly helpful staff , and a reasonable breakfast , all in all good value for central london at a fraction over £50 per head . I'd use the place again .

Room and food
we arrived at our hotel mid morning and found it in a very pleasant location overlooking a green - quiet a nice suprise for London. Reception were helpful in sorting out parking permit - which was needed for the first couple of hours only as parking was free from 1.30 on a Saturday till midnight on Sunday - another bonus. And you can park right outside the hotel - yet another bonus. The hotel is just a short walk from bustling Kings Cross area with many cafe's and restaurants of every nationality and a leisurly stroll into London centre and the main sights is approximately 30 mins - passing many small theatres and interesting sights along the way. well worth putting on your walking shoes and taking to the streets - although tube stations are only minutes away if you prefer to take the train. The room was tiny - though that is only to be expected in London where every inch of space equals money - but adequate. we did need to be pretty fit though as our room was in the attic space and up three flights of stairs - no lift available so beware if booking a room that you state you need a lower floor if you struggle with the stairs. Breakfast was included in the price and described as continental style - there were two plates of meat (ham and chicken - both descriptions used very loosely) and hard boiled eggs. all served with a basket of toast!!! no rolls or croisants in sight. yogurt and cereal also available. however, it set you up till lunchtime. Reception is manned 24 hours a day and all staff we met were helpful.

Reasonably satisfied
Sent to neighbouring hotel (European Hotel). Upgraded to double room which is still very small. On 3rd floor and doesn't seem to have a lift; may be problematic for people with lots of luggage. Shower is feeble. Otherwise little to complain about.

Okay but one scarry incident
The Hotel was okay and the reception staff polite.
However, when I went to have a shower in the morning, in room 34, there was water dripping from a glass lamp shade! As I waited for the water to run warm, a cold drip started dropping on me! When I realised what was happening, I switch off the light, fearing some kind of incident. I hence had to shower and shave in the dark! (The light above the sink was wired into the main shower room switch.)
The same receptionist inspected the defect quickly and said he would report it to the owner immediately. (No rebate was offered!)

Claustrophobic room
Have stayed at the Elmwood several times before and would usually recommend it. I was unfortunate this stay to get the smallest room I have ever stayed in. I do not usually suffer with claustrophobia but this room was tiny. The toilet and (tiny) sink were near the head of the bed, but the door would not open because the bedside cupboard was in the way. The plug of the sink was held open with sticky tape, so I had to hold onto a piece of wire to open and close the plughole. If you only wanted a wash this sink was tiny, and right above the toilet. There was a narrow passage between the bed and the dressing table to move up and down in. There was one chair, but it blocked this gap when you pulled it out to put anything on. As it rained hard while I was there, trying to dry things out in this space was a nightmare. The room was clean, the staff helpful, the breakfast fine. I would certainly stay there again, but would not want this room again. I have paid less for better rooms there.

A Viable Option with No Shocks
This place was generally tidy with clean sheets and bathroom, and a fairly professional standard - in a good location it is a viable option as a place to spend a night or even two. In the basement room, there was (is?) some rather regrettable evidence that an animal had made its presence known behind a dresser (a distinctive smell and a dubious stain); it looks like some neglected rooms need a going over.Yet generally the standard of cleanliness of sheets etc. was perfectly fine if you are just on the way between cities or meetings - this wasn't a place that I regretted booking.
