I chose this hotel for convenience and value. It is just across the street from St Pancras station, which is also where you will find the Green line stop of Big Bus Tours. This made it very simple to get around London (warning - last bus of the Green line to bring you back to St Pancras is at 5 pm)
The hotel itself is consistent with reviews I read before I left. Somebody said that the rooms are so small that one person has to be on the bed if the other person is to move around the room: this is true! The bed takes up most of the room, there is some room around it so you can place your luggage, and the bathroom is very crammed (if you sit down and close the door, your knees almost touch the wall in front). Overall, it was a simple room that looked clean and was good value for money we paid. I was happy with the TV and variety of channels in the room.
There is no elevator. There are many stairs, the staircase is very narrow and it's hard to get suitcases up. The building has an "old building" smell and felt very stuffy. We slept with the window slightly open (in January) to prevent our throats from drying up. This was not a big deal for one night but it would have been an issue if we had to stay longer. Breakfast is included in the price but I don't know what it entails as we slept through it.
Unrelated to the hotel: if you are looking to eat something in the area, you will be disappointed. Maybe this is not reflective of all British food but food in the area of St Pancras station was absolutely awful. We discovered a normal breakfast place the following morning that was a miracle after a full day of wasted food and money.
Cross the street (coming out of the hotel) and keep right on Euston/Pentonville Rd, pass McDonalds, take the first left (on Caledonian Rd) and pass a supermarket. You will find the breakfast place on the left hand side.
