I booked this hotel based on reviews I'd read on tripadvisor and wasn't disappointed. The hotel website gives excellent directions and even a street view map giving directions from King's Cross station to the hotel door. It was very easy to find, and I was able to check in right away after a long flight from Alaska.

The hotel is small, but very clean and comfortable. Room 11 (a basic single on the top floor) was tiny and cozy and perfect size for me. I had a very nice stay at the Jesmond Dene Hotel and will be staying there again during my next trip to London!

Room Tip: If you're taller than 5'5" book the Superior room because the Basic is tiny and the sha...

You couldn't do better than staying at the Jesmond Dene right near King's Cross Station in London!! It is clean, well run and the staff is incredibly nice. The rooms are well-designed, comfortable and utilize the existing rooms of the old house very well. Beds are comfy and linens are crisp and clean. Darren is a superstar owner who really cares about his business and his guests. We thoroughly enjoyed our 6 nights there and would definitely stay again!

Room Tip: If you have kids, ask for the room in the attic. It is a climb that is worth the fun!!

We are 60+ and used to taxis and fairly upscale hotels when we travel. But, we know that Europe has small rooms, etc. and didn't want to pay $500+ a night for "upscale." We chose Jesmond Dean because of the reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. It was "clean as a whistle" but if you are into luxury, you will need to find a Marriot or other. Rooms are small - bed is double not queen or king, but we knew that. It more than met our expectations and Darren was extremely helpful and courteous and capable from start to finish. Highly recommend! Joyce

Good hotel but very pricey for what it is.

Clean and friendly would stay again if my first choice (Hilton euston) is full

Despite the room's small-sized (on the average for London!), we spent a nice time in here!
The staff is kind, every day they serve the breakfast (both English and continental, both very good) and tidy up the room, bathroom included.
The Hotel is really convenient if you want to visit the city because is well-connected with the metro (Kings Cross Station), in 10 minutes you are in the centre! Moreover, you can leave your luggage there after the check out.
I think that we'll come back there!
