My boyfriend and I booked three nights here a few weeks ago and we were pleasantly surprised by how wonderful everything was! At the price you pay for, you don't expect much. We were so pleased wit the size of the room, the comfort of the bed, and just how clean everything was! The breakfast was quite lovely too (my... More

I was very disappointed to find a small room and no toilet or shower had I been made aware of this at the time of booking then I would have booked elsewhere. The shower... More

The cleanest place I´ve ever stayed! Great location, friendly staff, comfy room. Few minutes walk from British museum, Kings Cross station, you can walk literally everywhere. Breakfast included (even though I´d prefer better option for vegetarians, fruits or vegetables would be nice). Would recommend it to anyone!

Macdonald Hotel is just a short distance to St. Pancras and King's Cross stations. The room we stayed was a Little room, but neat and clean and with a bath and toilet. It was also convenient to be able to drink tea and coffee inside the room. I was amazed how quiet the place was though it was very close... More

Easy walking distance to Kings Cross/St Pancras. This is typical of the area, a budget hotel. This is one of the better ones. It was clean with plenty of hot water and shower pressure even though we were on the top floor. English breakfast was good with better than average sausage. Would use again. Downside was that room was relatively... More

We stayed three nights mid October-16 at this hotel. We had a three-bed room on the top floor.mThe room was spacious but without shower and toilet. It was however no problem as the amenities were located a couple of metres away. The room was clean, beds comfortable. Tea and coffee on the room and I liked the possibility to stuff... More

I liked everything! Wonderful hotel, staff and location! Not far from the station on foot. Nearby there are shops and restaurants. The central part of the city landmarks are very easily accessible by transport.

When traveling a lot you normally only remember the extraordinary. In this case the extraordinary bad experience. The only positive thing to say is about the location some few hundred meters from Kings' Cross station.

It is regrettable that you have found our accommodation unacceptable. I can assure you that this is not a view shared by many of our satisfied guests. In fact, guests who regularly use accommodation of our level in London often observe that in comparison we are exceptionally clean and many also comment that our rates are very reasonable for London....

My son and I greatly enjoyed our time here and would gladly return. It is central to all conveniences and public transportation. Lots of great restaurants. My son loved the basketball court outside. The staff are cheerful, friendly and most helpful. Mr. Saviour arranged our cab to and from LHR at a great price.
