I would like to write directly to Travelocity as this hotel was wrongly described as a 5 star hotel and certainly not worth the money.... also the king bed was not a king bed but a double bed. Please contact me. Btw your app seems to have no scope for feedback or complaints

Fantastic Hotel

Pros: Convenient location, friendliness of staff, comfy beds, wall decor and snack area on every floor (so cute)
Cons: In the morning on the last day of my stay, the shower ran cold. May have possibly been because of many people using the shower at that time.
Location: Harry Potter Store 9 3/4 trolly, Many stores to grab quick meals/snacks, travel hub for many destinations within and out of London.
I mainly picked this hotel for the location, it's about a 4 minute walk to the underground and right across the street from the international train station. You will also have the stores that are in Kings Cross Station conveniently close to you as well. This was particularly helpful when I needed to go to a pharmacy but did not want to be outside for too long. The decor in the hallways and rooms were a highlight in my trip overall, very thoughtful and beautifully done. The staff were willing to help with absolutely everything I needed which included providing maps and sending postcards. I definitely recommend this hotel for a short stay (1-2 nights) in London, the rooms are a bit too small to justify staying for a longer time. Overall though, it was a fantastic stay in a 5 star hotel.

Thank you for such a wonderful review and glad that you enjoyed (nearly) everything we had to offer. I am very sorry that there was no hot water for your shower, and would like to assure you that this is not a regular occurrence. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon and send our best wishes. Benedict Eccles-Williams Rooms Director
