    Great location but falls down on the details

    The hotel is pretty much across from Kings Cross station - hard to beat the location. Also, the stuff was very friendly and helpful. Good shower with more than sufficient water pressure, which is not a given in London.

    The room was small and cramped, and the situation was made much worse by the inclusion of a second single bed. Also, the room had a moldy smell, the reason for which became clear next morning when I had a shower - the ventilation was ineffective, and the whole room was covered in condensation.
