This was my second visit to the hotel and again it didn't disappoint. Beautiful rooms, delicious breakfast and friendly staff. Very conveniently located over the road from the Eurostar station. A selection of restaurants within walking distance. They also have a pantry on every floor offering sweets, cake and other nibbles open 24 hours.

Thank you very much for such fabulous feedback and you clearly enjoyed every aspect of the hotel. Glad you managed to enjoy breakfast with us, and although there are a huge range of restaurants locally to choose from, next time you must try ours for dinner which has won many accolades and will not disappoint you! Until then, from us...

My husband and I stayed on Saturday night for a trip away without the kids. Hotel was brilliant. Beautifully decorated room, very quiet and easy for us to get in and out of Soho. We had a corner room overlooking the concourse with views to the City. Couldn't fault it and will definitely return.

Dear Amelia, Thank you very much for your feedback and delighted to know you and your husband thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Hopefully, if you did not manage to try our Restaurant Plum+Spilt Milk, you have to come back again soon and let us know what you think of this too.

Me and my partner stayed at this hotel for three nights in November. We were invited an upgrade of our room (against charge) upon arrival which we accepted. However, our room was very small (room 316) and next door to the elevator which meant people constantly walking past our doors. After our first night I requested another room which I...

I had a meeting in the bar ,(14/11/16) and needed a document printing. I asked at the compact, fairly busy reception if they could help and the wonderful receptionist did even though she was very busy in the middle of checkouts and printer problems. She handled all the tasks she was dealing very gracefully and I am truly thankful for...

Thank you very much for your feedback. The room chosen was a Couchette which is the entry category designed on the romantic age of travel by train. We would suggest a Cubitt style for two people which would allow you much more room. I am glad to know that you found our location was exceptional and ideal for accessing most...

Location is fantastic and staff are friendly and efficient. There is a free snack zone room where you can help yourself to cake, coffee, tea and snacks. The downfall was the size of the room - I couldn't open my suitcase in my room properly as there was very limited space. Also the noise from the bar below was quite...

This is a nice hotel located at King's Cross station. The biggest plus point is location, as it is very easy to connect on the underground, Eurostar or train from here. Reception at the hotel is very small and is accessed through a small entrance next to the bar entrance. If I was staying here again I would definitely not...

Thank you very much for your feedback and such kind words of support. Glad you appreciated the amazing location and Bespoke Décor and design.

I am a big fan of the SPG program and look for their properties whenever I travel. I've stayed at other hotels in London and like this one for its convenient location, great service, stylish accommodations and delicious breakfast.
