Close to trains and Kings Cross

The Kings cross area is really changing and a nicer place to stay than it has been in years gone by.

Hotel is very clean and comfortable - a bit small and basic for some tastes but the staff were friendly and efficient. Nice breakfast with lots of choice.

Reasonable price for London

The room was small but clean with its own bathroom.

We didn't require breakfast as our train was very early. Just a short walk to St Pancras so very handy for the Eurostar.

Apollo Hotel

Excellent value, even more so if there are two of you.

Small room but perfect for a short stay, spotlessly clean, TV, Coffee making facility and fan, hairdryer all provided. Would have liked a packed breakfast item such as a croissant to take as had to leave before Breakfast was served at 7.30am, also think many of the clients like myself had to leave to catch the early Eurostar train just a suggestion perhaps.

Friendly staff Good Location

For the price the location of this hotel makes it worth staying.

My room was certainly no frills but was clean, had free wifi & tea making facilities. Shower cubicle, very small, otherwise very satisfied with my stay. Staff very friendly, nice warm welcome.

Just Right

Friendly, quiet but within a stones throw of mainline and tube stations and easy walk to Bloomsbury, The British Museum and National Library.

Great breakfast too.

A convenient place for a short stay.

The hostel I use when visiting London was fully booked so I elected to stay here in November 2014.

I booked less than a week in advance so thought the £200 for two nights in a twin room was a fair deal for a hotel over a hostel.

The location is great. Close to Kings cross and st Pancras. If you've heavy bags are are travelling by train then you wont have very far to drag them. On the flip side of this, if your bags are very large or heavy you may struggle on the stairs within the hotel. As with many buildings of this age the staircases arnt particularly wide. The room its self was okay. We stayed on the top floor and the roof sloped inwards slightly. The room was small for two people but with the price and short stay I mind this didn't bother me. The WiFi was free and of a good standard. The room was clean, the shower was fine, the bathroom was small, however you couldn't reach all four walls from the toilet, so it wasn't that small. The toilet door didn't have a lock and wasn't attached securely to the bottom hinge. Our room was on the street side of the hotel and at no point was traffic noise an issue. Most of the businesses on the street seem to be other hotels. This is great considering how close to kings cross it is. Noise within the hotel didn't bother me. If your used to the sound proofed larger high end hotels then it might bother you. Apparently the hotel was fully booked during my stay, if that was true then the noise level from other guests was surprisingly low.

The food surprised me. I had not expected a cooked breakfast, with budget hotels you're only given a continental style breakfast. The cooked breakfast wasn't quite of the high standards I'm used to. However being unexpectedly included with the cost of the room I feel no reason to be very critical of it. The only thing I'm annoyed with is some nonsense 3% charge that was sprung on me when I checked in. The 3% didn't amount to much extra however this isn't the point. The price LateRooms gives should be the price that is paid. Quite frankly I'm offended that I'm told how much I will have to pay only to discover later the hotel wants more. In summery. If the idea of a hostel, with less security and shared toilets scares you, pay the extra to stay here. You get your own locking room with your own toilet and shower. Plus you get a free continental and cooked breakfast. If you want plenty of room for you, your family, your luggage AND want to be comfortable for a stay longer than a few days, this isn't for you. Pay the extra for another hotel. In my opinion, this is a decent place where you get value for the small amount of money you part with. Lastly, Laterooms need to tell the owners to get rid of the stupid 3% surprise charge or include it in the Laterooms quoted price.
