 "bad value for money"
I booked this 'hotel' because it was near to Kings Cross/St Pancras but I was very disappointed with the facilities given the price. The shower was broken; there was no lock on the bathroom door; one of the tea cups was chipped; the room was incredibly small and looked out onto a brick wall. The breakfast was continental style and tea and coffee was served in flasks rather than being made fresh. They charge £2 for use of the room safe and £5 for left luggage (they did not put ours in a locked room but left in in the corridor by the back door)

 "Easy and comfortable"
The hotel was close to the KingsCross/St. Pancras station. Easy to reach from the Luton Airport and thoughout London by subway.The room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was good and enough to start the day.

 "london sights"
I enjoyed the stay at the hotel, breakfast was a good start in the morning with as much as you want in sliced chicken and ham, boiled egg, yoghurt, juices, tea and coffee and toast with butter and jam available. The hotel was closed to Kingcross station and undergrounds. A little noisy from above bedroom from footsteps but all in all it was just what we needed to visit all the sights we wanted to see in London.

 "friendly and clean, but worn"
Very small room, no table/chair. Old and worn; loose toilet cover, no hooks for towel or coat. But very friendly personel and after complaint about the (dangerous) loose toilet cover, we immediately got another room. Both rooms were clean, beds okay. Excellent location. Not too noisy although sirens of ambulances of the nearby hospital could be heard day and night.

 "Elmwoodhotel"
Great location, near shops and train station you can pretty much get from there to anywhere in London. Very clean, fresh towels everyday, free wifi however was not a strong connection at times, helpful customer service when booking etc. however walls were thin and next door was loud not giving us the best sleep, breakfast was good, excellent heating. Overall good value for money and would recommend definitely would stay again.

 "Purchase for the location, nothing else"
The hotel is close to Kings Cross, but this is the only benefit it gives. For £80/night, I was allocated a cupboard sized "double" room, with very little space for just myself, topped off with 80s decor and frayed carpets throughout the converted house (which also could do with a lick of paint and a clean, the mould on the walls is a little grim). The breakfast provided is your basic cornflakes and toast.However, my main sticking point for this hotel is the poor standard of service offered and the draconian request that you hand in your key everytime you leave the premesis. The staff just didn't seem to care for making anything be smooth or pleasureable, simply plaming you off as much as possible. The fact you were rudely asked to hand in your keys as well doesn't help - despite the fact I was nipping down the road for some dinner for 5 minutes, it was impossible to reason with the reeceptionist that "security" of my room wasn't really an issue here. It did feel like I was staying with a strict relative who had to keep tabs on me at all times.One saving grace for this hotel is the WiFi standard which was above-average.Overall though, at that pricepoint, I think you are seriously better off looking for hotels slightly further from a major terminal or paying a little extra and booking one of the numerous hotels in Argyle Square, which looked like they were run much more smoothly. Will certainly not be staying here in the future.

 "Great location for good money"
This Hotel was in great location, close to bus and metro stations. Good value for the money. Rooms were clean, atthough very small. Service was good, special thanks to Inga from reception! Breakfast room was quite small, so had to stand in the queue for 15 min to get a place to sit if got in the rush hour. Otherwise very satisfied. Would suggest this hotel if you value money for a great location!

 "staying"
It was a very nice stay and the owner was very enthusiastic doing what she liked to do: caring for people. It was clean and the breakfast was good. Only thing was that i could not pay by credit card because i don't have one, and had to confirm two times before i came that we would arrive and when. This doesn't fit with the lady's help and carefulness. I would recommend it certainly to family and friends.

 "Steep experience"
While the location is good and with walking distance of the railway station. A tired traveller will not enjoy the steps that await your arrival to your room. Advise on the congestion tax would have been advised.

 "Tiny Room - Perfect Location"
Gentleman at reception was most helpful and polite. Room was very tiny but I slept surprisingly well. Location is absolutely perfect, a four minutes walk to King's Cross so if you have to catch a train in the morning it's just ideal and ... absolutely inexpensive. Real value for the money ... but don't expect to find the Ritz!

 "Review of Elmwood Hotel"
We enjoyed our stay at the hotel but the things we would like the Elmwood Hotel to know, is:- the breakfast could have been a bit more "varied".- the wi-fi did not work on the upper floor.- it isn't easy to take a shower when you hardly get any water from the hose...

 "Slabbert Family"
Very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms small but clean. But that was what we were llooking for. A place to sleep in a safe area. We could not have asked for a better location. Near the underground and places to eat. Will use it again.

 "basic with breakfast below average"
very basic hotel suited to my needs. My only complaint is breakfast which was all too basic and nothing like the 'full continental breakfast' promised. Very friendly staff however who were much in the same boat as me.

 "Elmwood hotel review"
Nice stay. Room clean and homely. Kettle didn't work however. Breakfast excellent and promptly served. Would stay there again. Excellent value.Was woken up at 7.30 by noise from other rooms. Doors were a little too utilitarian for me could have done with a bit more character and paint. Put me off a little.

 "Excellent value for money!"
I was very pleased with my stay in the Elmwood Hotel. The room was very small but immaculate and had a small shower room and toilet . I also had a small balcony looking over Argyle Square, which was a lovely setting. I couldn't believe how central I was as the hotel was so quiet. The breakfast was basic but very enjoyable. The staff were very friendly and really helpful. I feel this was excellent value for money and would book up again.
