 "Elmwood hotel"
Good location near St Pancras, very pleasant staff, breakfast was a little poor.
The room was cleaned every day. Only one thing very disturbing : the noise and laugh from the people in the next room (between 11.00 PM and 2.30 AM)
during 3 nights
Azegagh L London August 2014 Easytobook traveller
the breakfast was very good but the restaurant is narrow to host all people.
The room is too small, the beds are very small, and the mattresses are not comfortable.
But overall the hotel is nice, with a good reception.
The staff is listening and is very nice.

 "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.

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.
