The location was great and you could have food delivered to the hotel. I don't like going to a 4 star hotel and have to pay to use the pool. The hotel needs more night life.

Clean and well maintained. Lots of staff in training. Got yelled at by one staff member for being in the club area where another staff member had asked us to wait until our room was ready. Then Travelocity did not communicate well about our second reservation. No breakfast included-- big frown!!

Location was great, pool and spa area was awesome, room was great. Need to put clocks in the room somewhere and the cable was out for the first few days of my stay. Limited cable channels only 34 so don't expect to watch much TV:) Staff was great and connected restaurants and bars were awesome! I will definitely stay here again when and if I go back to the UK and definitely recommend it to anyone visiting.

We had a mixed experience at this hotel. We were greeted by reception staff with "You are staying here 8 days? That'll be boring." Then room service and cleaning staff were very helpful and kind. I would only stay here again if no other place was available in my price range. It wasn't bad but not pleasant either.

Under construction 4/2016 - avoid it for a while

The building is being gutted and renovated, and the construction workers started operating hammer drills or other very loud equipment at 7 am one day. It's not worth staying here until that is done.

Good place to land if you know London

Location: While the hotel is called King's Cross Bloomsbury, it's not really either, but is a fine place to stay if you are somewhat familiar with London.
This hotel is being refurbished, top to bottom, one floor at a time. There are 8 floors, and they're at 7 now, so it will be a while. Although there is work being done, disruption is really minimal. They are doing a great job with the construction. While the hotel is called King's Cross Bloomsbury, it's not really either, but is a fine place to stay if you are somewhat familiar with London. If not, you'll likely to get a primer on London buses, trains and taxis. This is not a bad thing, especially if you are adventurous. The staff were friendly and helpful.
