The only good thing about the Melville is the location. When we arrived, an extremely uninterested receptionist told us to come back at 2pm for check in. When we returned later on, there was another receptionist who was unable to find our booking. After minutes of searching, he still had not found our booking, but he told us we had...

Never says anything else to us, we arrived late at night so I think we got stitched with the worst room, There was...

This is a budget price hotel in a great location, but tiny rooms - if there had been 2 of us it would have been awful. The cleanliness is questionable - I found a dirty glass and a used toothbrush over the sink and this really put me off! The bed was clean. You get what you pay for, however!...

Staff friendly Room clean Bed comfy Nice budget hotel that suited my needs, if you're looking for 5 star hotels go stay in one, if you're looking for somewhere to lay your head that is clean and comfy then I'd recommend this place, close to kings cross and st pancreas, (5 mins walk) some nice reasonable resteruants stay here.

I genuinely wish I had paid £30 more and gone to St.Pancrass Travelodge. I gave the hotel the benefit of the doubt after seeing bad reviews on TripAdvisor but please if you're reading this don't book to this hotel. The staff were extremely unprofessional. As I walked in to the hotel a random man from the street came in (looking...

We stayed at the Melville for 2 nights prior to travelling to France- chosen for its proximity to St Pancras. The room was tiny with a double bed squeezed against the wall and a really small bathroom. It was clean however and we only needed to sleep there. On our journey back from France we had booked to stay there...

Great location 100 yards from KINGS CROSS tube the hotel is a converted Georgian town house recently refurbished with some zing bling.
