Very happy with my stay. it was really well located to everything I wanted to do, the booking and reception on arrival was extremely easy and straightforward. My only comment is that they are not soundproof rooms, so must be incredibly noisy during term. Would very happily stay again and recommend to others.

Easy to book through the website - no fuss booking, paying, or checking in. Accommodation is cheap, and well placed in London with a 10 min walk to/from Kings Cross. As expected, facilities were basic but clean. Overall - worth considering for a short stay in central London.

This was a very positive experience. The location was just perfect; there was a very secure feeling about the residence; the staff were welcoming and helpful; it was a bonus to have access to a fully equipped kitchen. Overall I was very happy and will come back again.

Conveniently located with good security and helpful staff. A clean room with a comfy bed, although it would have been good to be able to open the window a little wider for more air in the heat. Great value for money and a place to be recommended.
