                The facilities - specifically air conditioning in rooms, room service and swimming pool/jacuzzi.

                Faded decor. Additional charge for use of pool. Although less expensive than other "full service" options, still by no means good value for money.

                Leisure Centre

                Room is not well furnished, TV is too old and too small

                7.4

                the best thing was after a long day of travelling, meetings, work etc the pillows and bed were so comfy!! I didn't make use of any of the hotel facilities as i was in london for work purposes so did not spend much time actually in the hotel, but what i could see was very good, staff great.

                the only thing was not being able to open a window to let some air in.

                the staff are excellent, very comfortable room

              • Single
                5.4

                bed was comfortable.

                room rate of over £180 does not include breakfast - not clear on the booking, and you have to pay to use the pool - in a 4 star hotel!! i've never heard anything like it before in my life. Avoid, there are better hotels in london.

              • Family with children
                4.6

                On checking into the hotel they swiped my credit card for any extras. My 16 year old daughter later ordered room service and was told she had to pay as they delivered the food. She was then asked a further twice for money even though my husband had made a call to the duty manager, who failed on both occasions to deal with the situation. When we checked out I mentioned this to the lady on reception who informed me that my card details had not been uploaded onto the system, surely your duty manager could have seen this and amended it? This was not a good experience for my daughter who will be staying in London on a weekly basis and we were thinking of using your hotel but have changed our mind.

              • Single
                8.8

                Good location near King's Cross; comfortable rooms; friendly and efficient staff.

                Prices, even in London, are rather steep for what you get.

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                Was really good to be allowed into our room a little earlier so that we could store our bags and see more of London

                Bar service was very poor.
