The hotel cancelled my booking, claiming that they sent me email to pay in advance but I didn't reply it. I didn't even receive email from them. I asked for a solution but they offered none. The reception hung up my phone in a cocky manner, and blame everything on the system of 'Booking.com'.

Had a 5 nights stay at the MacDonald Hotel in the beginning of January. It is perfectly located at King's Cross/ Sant Pancras. The room was small, and everything is a bit worn, but perfectly clean, and for us that is the main thing. The staff is very friendly and were more than happy to help answering our questions. Can...

My 'usual' hotel added 50% to the price the night before I booked and I had just wouldn't swallow it, so I found a cheap hotel. I could have expensed 4x the £60 I paid for this room. It was fine. Basic and cheap and shared bathroom/toilets but clean, friendly, functional, and a very decent breakfast. Brilliant location for Kings...

This bed and breakfast has been a blessing while staying here in London. The rooms were perfectly what we were looking for in a place to retreat after a day exploring. Simple, clean, and well maintained. The location, breakfast, and wifi were just some of the highlights, not to mention the wonderful staff. The metro is literally steps away, the...

I booked this Hotel as I thought it was the Macdonald Group. However it wasn't we were put on the 3rd floor in a triple room. 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...

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...

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...
