          Very good location, really close to st Pancras station, quiet neighborhood with a small park right across the street. Friendly staff. However the bedroom was small and the bathroom even smaller... that's why it is ideal for a one-night stay only

          No there are no lifts. The rooms are located in two other different buildings right next to the building with the reception. You have to climb stairs in order to get to the room
