The room was most satisfactory. It was a cosy single, as expected by the online description. However there was a small desk/dressing table, with a chair, very good internet and a large desk fan. The room was hot, but with the window open and the fan on it was a manageable temperature. The bed was quite comfortable and there were plenty of pillows and cushions. I didn't use the TV, but it was a good size. The bathroom was compact but very good, with excellent water pressure in the shower and lovely soap (Dove). For London and only 20 minutes from St Pancras this was a very good hotel for the price. I'd think about staying here again - as long as I didn't have the same problem with the wrong key/room number.
The reception staff made a rather large mistake in giving me the key to a room which was ALREADY OCCUPIED! This meant that I walked in on a man getting changed. I promptly apologised and returned to the reception. I received a quick apology and was given a different number and key.
To save money I didn't use the hotel for breakfast, but there were plenty of cafes, restaurants and shops nearby. It was an easy walk to Manor House Tube Station, and a good easy commute into central London.There was an excellent Indian restaurant nearby called Sunderban - very tasty!
I was at the hotel for business and it was ideally located, the room had everything that I needed short of a mini-fridge - but to be honest I would not have expected that for the price - £61 for a night. Tastefully decorated. Some noise from the road, but then again it is London! Overall I would be happy to stay here again. less
