The location of this B&B is perfect! Literally within two minutes walk from King’s Cross St. Pancras station (look for the Burger King – this road is Argyle St). King’s Cross St. Pancras is great for the tube and Eurostar. Try to get room numbers 4, 5 or 5a as these are on the first floor (one flight of stairs from reception). Four is probably better as 5 and 5a are next to each other and behind a separate fire door (so you can hear when the doors are being open and shut – not a big deal though). (There are also rooms on the ground floor I believe and more on upstairs on the second and third floors). The rooms are warm, have a hand basin in them and heavy curtains to keep in the warmth. Traffic noise is not a problem. Space is limited but manageable if you have backpacks rather than large suitcases (helps with the stairs too – these are a bit steep and a little narrow but are really fine). There is a toilet and shower/toilet on the lower floor – there was never anyone there when we needed to use it (there are other toilets/showers around the other areas too). Towels are provided as is shower gel. The full English breakfast is simple but tasty and filling and comes with a smile. The free wifi worked well. At 70 pounds per night, the value seems right - small room and shared bathroom/toilet but very friendly service, comfortable and warm room, beds and shower and again in a fabulous location.
