    Nothing I can think of. It was awful, sorry.

    Overpriced! Unfriendly (and lying) kitchen staff, the most awful tea in britain, noisy, ugly room. Uncomfortable bed, unflexible breakfast times. Oh, and did I mention it was overpriced? I rather stay in a tent next time I am in london.

    Superb

    Staff were friendly ,helpful and efficient. Room was clean and bright and the bed was very comfortable.As a lone traveller I felt safe .

    The dining room was on the small side, but friendly staff and abundance of breakfast compensated for this. There were problems with the television signals, so some of the TVs only stayed on for minutes at a time.However this was in the process of being sorted.

    Very good

    The ensuite bathrooms that were modern and neat. Location was convenient and the whole experience was very good value for money given some of the terrible hotels available in this price range

    I asked for hot milk for my cereal and was told that there was none !

    We hated this hotel, the room was extremely small, it didn't fit our luggage ( 1 big, 1 medium, 2 small), the walls were gross (some infiltration going on), the street was so noisy that was very difficult to sleep, it was a total nightmare. We'll never go back to this hotel. The breakfast was reasonable, but the room is horrible. Good thing we just stayed there 1 night, the location is good, close to St. Pancras train station.

    This hotel was dirty, unsafe , smelly,broken windows, dirty bathroom, uncomfortable bed. Unhelpful staff very bad value for money.I Checked out a night early as it was so bad, they then refused to refund the money back for that night,even though I wasnt staying. This is a trading standards issue aas this hotyel is not as described,Please can you investigate this as I require a full refund ans the hotel wasnt willing to do this .

    Superb

    The hotel is in a very good location, very close to all metro and railway stations, and also not far from the center by feet, and also very close to the shoredich area with a good night life(10min by bus). It has a very good value for money services, very helpfull staff, adequate room space,comfortable beds and good toilet space. I would also like to add that when we booked the room it had only a double bed available, and I asked them if it was possible to have two seperate beds. When we arrived in the room there was an extra bed added , which made me very satisfied and I would like to personaly thank the hotelier for that.

    The only thing I would like to mention is that the dinning room could be a little more "cheerfull" in terms of decoration since it is in the basement of the building at has no natural light.

    The bed was comfortable.

    The breakfast was very poor - a pot of instant coffee (without a lid) and three pieces of white toast! Terrific...please Arriva, do not insult your guests like that. I ate it only once. The breakfast room was hot and stuffy.

    Proximity to King's Cross.

    Apart from proximity to King's Cross, I would grade every other aspect of the hotel as poor. The room was ridiculously small, out moded tv that should be displayed in a museum, poor quality breakfast and the hotel has the nerve to charge 3.5% for payment by credit card. This is totally against the rules set by visa.

    Superb

    The hotel is well run, with clean rooms and adequate facilities. We stayed in two rooms, one of which has been nicely modernised. Hotel staff were friendly and efficient and the hotel itself is ideally situated for travel from Kings Cross station and many local eating places. Overall the hotel was excellent value and we would use again on future trips to London
