Could do worse, could do betterfrom s_Away
Enjoyable stayfrom jlry71
The hotel was spotless, quiet and you felt safe, which is important with families.
The room was spacious, very clean, quiet and very tidy. The staff was friendly, helpful and helped with the requests we had.
The food was tasty and plentiful, you did not feel pressurised to finish your food in a hurry.
Taxi cost about £10 to Regents Street.
Will go back.
s great to read reviews!from TinaKay
We took a cab from Victoria Station to the hotel. Our cabby took advantage of our American accents and took us the long way. 14 pounds for the trip. Whereas our British friends who met us at the station and took a different cab to the same hotel but left in the cab right AFTER ours got there before us and for only 7 pounds.
It wasn't easy to find when walking, and kind of a long walk to the nearest tube stations (Angel and Kings Cross), and not within walking distance of the attractions London is famous for. It's in something of a residential neighborhood, and there aren't brightly lit signs to make it highly visible if you are trying to get there at night. But it was clean and quiet.
There is a great Indian restaurant in the lobby. Good curry and Chicken Tikka. That same restaurant serves as the breakfast buffet each morning.
As I mentioned at the outset, honesty of the staff at the hotels was something I was worried about. (Example - I didn't bring my laptop, left no valuables in the room and we locked our suitcases when we left each day.) I highly recommend this to anyone staying here as well.
There was nothing in the closet that any of the staff would need - it was completely empty - so I placed a some stuff in there one day before we left. I tossed a handful of receipts and postcards on top of the stuff I'd put inside and quick closed the door before they fell out. The door was securely shut and the contents weren't likely to shift and knock it open.
That night when we returned, those items were hanging out of the bottom of the closet door -- housekeeping had opened the closet. I was a bit unnerved, but let it go because there was nothing they could have taken. It just confirmed for me that the reviews about dishonest staff were on target so be careful.
I might stay there again, but I think I'd prefer something closer to the sights and where there are pubs and shops that don't close up early each day.

Very poor servicefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Good Out-of -town Hotelfrom sunluvva
Drawbacks: *Only one extra pillow in room. *Shower is poor. *Extremely slow lifts and the back stairs are grim. *Tiny swimming pool, inefficient jacuzzi. *Long, long walk to train station (wear comfortable shoes!).
Pretty good for London if you get a decent ratefrom StPaulus
Try elsewherefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Service has been terrible with the staff seeming to have trouble understanding me. Not sure if it was my Scots accent or what.
Rooms are ok and fairly decent size. Location is a good walk away from Kings Cross, so don't be fooled by that. However, it is relatively convenient for Thameslink trains at Kings Cross or Farringdon.
Even if you are Platinum Member of Priority Club don't expect this to make any difference when you stay here.
I wont be going back, there are much better Holiday Inn's/Crowne Plaza's and other hotels rather than this one.
Great internet ratefrom taffcanada10
Top Local Tips for London
markets in London Petticoat lane market on a Sunday is a must for clothes - but don't forget the best..Camden is one huge market on a Sunday and a Saturday with freaks and friends selling everything from 50's retro to cybergoth chic. Turn Right out of the underground and enter a different world.
take the double-decker bus, even though it's cliche! hop on those red double decker buses on your first or second day and just ride. It's a great way to see *everything* in one fell swoop, so you won't feel like you've missed anything and you'll get your bearings for extended siteseeing later. and it's fun to be on the topside and be eye-to-eye with the second floor of the many historic buildings.
Oyster card An oyster card will save you money if you use buses or the underground. Buy from any tube station if you are staying for a week it is worth having.
