8.0 Very Good
Great location. It's only (literally) a few minutes walk from Kings Cross / St Pancras Station. The room was small but cleverly designed. There was a space large enough to open a suitcase (unless your suitcase is too big). But due to the location, it becomes noisy during weekends nights. The shower booth was fairly large, but the door didn't fully open because it interfered with the showerhead on the ceiling. You may need to squeeze yourself to get in and out. There are no lifts.
6.0 Okay
Pros:The hotel is pretty much across from Kings Cross station - hard to beat the location. Also, the stuff was very friendly and helpful. Good shower with more than sufficient water pressure, which is not a given in London.
Cons:The room was small and cramped, and the situation was made much worse by the inclusion of a second single bed. Also, the room had a moldy smell, the reason for which became clear next morning when I had a shower - the ventilation was ineffective, and the whole room was covered in condensation.
