The room seemed like a pretty good deal when I booked it. I wasn't expecting anything super fancy, all I was looking for was a clean room, bed, and bathroom. The day I arrived I heard another guest yelling about his room. He stated, "All I wanted was a place to sleep & shower!" I didn't think anything of it...

The hotel is near to public transportation and near to the city center. The WIFI is very good. They did not change the towels. I put the towels on the ground to change them, but they took the same towels back and put them on the bed

The room wasn't as clean as it should of been. There was chewing gum stuck to the skirting board near the bed which had been there a while. Lots of scuff marks on the walls and paint peeling. There was a lot of dust behind and around the furniture. The carpet needed a hoover. I did go down to reception...

For London this is a good budget - hotel. The location is fantastic when travelling with train (St. Pancras, Kings Cross, Euston) not far away. The 24-hours-reception makes check - in easy. The room was clean, but very, very 'cosy'. It was a bed, with 1,5 m around two sides. Sink was in the room, bathroom shared. For busy days...

Staff friendly but had trouble booking us in due to poblem with room, so we didn't get the room we payed for. The room we got was ok for one night but if I was staying longer I would have asked for a move. Room quite basic with a view of a wall as we were in the basement rooms,...

Me and my boyfriend stayed at the excelsior on the 23rd of March 2017 and from the outset the hotel looked lovely and the reception was very modern... it went down hill from there. As we walked into the room we felt like Harry potter under the stairs as the room was about 6ft wide and extremely cramped.. As we...

had the worst experience you can imagine - after spending a lot of time selection which hotel to have for a memorable occasion with my partner we booked this hotel.

Staff were very friendly and efficient. Room was clean but very small, with telly, sink and small wardrobe. There was an unseasonable heat wave so I left the window open - room was a pleasant cool temp. when I got back late. Slept well. The only downside was that, I suppose as my room was at the very top, the...
