    The manager was fantastically helpful and friendly and called the guests with their first names. The interior was extremely cool and staying there is a real experience. I really recommend this one!

    The rooms are really small. The rooms outside to the street are really noisy with police cars driving by every 5 minutes. Please pick a room to the other side if you can not sleep in noise, or don't want to wear earplugs. The area around is not that nice.

    I like the atmosphere and conditions in the hotel. It is very nice family atmosphere there. Location is perfect with convenient means of transport. Interior design is really cool. Breakfast was so good... And fresh juice with ginger... Thanks to Leo and Antonio for their warmth and hospitality.

    Staff were excellent. Good wine list. Central location. Nice decor. Relaxed atmosphere.

    Small rooms. No tea/coffee facilities. No radio 4. Cost about 15% more than I thought it should, but that's about the supplement I'd have expected for the location.

    The idea. The bed and the luxury linen. The size and look of the bathroom and the abundance of towels and delightful toiletries. The huge copper bath was a delight. I have always wanted one and it is deep and long. Good water pressure. The breakfast was generous among other things; fresh fruit, juice, good strong coffee and an abundance of breads, toast and croissants. The setting of the table and the addition of morning papers was welcoming The design and the colour scheme in the executive suite where exactly my style however....

    The reality..... The very narrow stairs. The wi fi did not work despite hours wasted and a router in our room. The speed was way too slow to ever get any access at all even when we connected directly to it. We could not get access in the breakfast room either. There is no tv or phone in the room as advertised. The room was very small despite being an executive suite and there is no where other than a hook on the wall to hang clothing. This is London so It was noisy, we had to keep the window open as it was warm and stuffy in the top floor room. There is a dyson fan however which helped a little. The shower cubicle is Very nice to look at but very small. You cannot turn around in it or get away from the excellent water pressure to wash your hair. It is Very expensive for what you get which is a b and b with some tasteful features that has been renovated by someone with style.

    We started out in room 8, which was lovely.The room was interesting and the bed comfortable. The bathroom large and comfortable, the towels amazing! . Both Antonio and Leo - the managers who worked during our stay were wonderful, warm, and the nicest guys. We switched to room 5- once again- large bathroom, interesting room. Comfortable bed. The breakfasts were fine- not super, but fine.

    The towels in room 5 were not nearly as nice as the towels in room 8. Room 5 is really small- but the space is used wisely.

    Courteous service. Both men at the reception desk go out of their way to make every thing agreable for us.Surprisingly comfortable even at the first glance, every thing seem old. Excellent breakfast with quite a variety of bread and home-made jam and honey. Excellent location.

    We stay at the fourth floor ( nice room) but there is no escalator, and very narrow stairs. Bringing up and down a 40 lbs-suitcase require stregth !!!

    The manager and staff were charming,helpful and obliging. They made every effort to please. The continental breakfasts were first class-fine products beautifully presented. The bed was very comfortable and the rooms clean. The bathroom had plenty of good towelling.However,the stairs were hard work., The bathroom too small and with no telephone in the room it was difficult were one to seek assistance E.g a cup of tea,there being no teamaking facilities. Ventilation was also a problem in the top floor room I was put in. The price was too much and compares unfavourably with other London hotels with better facilities. I regret having to say all this because managment and staff were exceptionally nice and kind. R Williams

    Very original design, very friendly staff, a hotel where you feel at home!

    The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and very available to help in anyway. The room was very nicely decorated with a huge bathroom, and all the usual necessities (toiletries, hairdryer). There was free wi-fi available throughout the hotel.

    Not something I had a problem with, but be warned about the small size of the room, the fact that there's no closet, mini bar, tv or air conditioning.

    Great hospitality, super location if traveling with tgv ! the rough luxe concept is An unique and funny experience, which gives an extra dimention to your trip to London.

    Be prepared to sleep in a mini bedroom, beats all records, but none the less recommendable!!

    The breakfast choice, though only continental, is excellent and of high quality.

    Some bedrooms very small and hotel not suitable for those who find climbing narrow stairs difficult.

    Friendly welcome from the staff. Hotel located next to Kings Cross and St Pancras. Great breakfast. Small rooms but very confortable. Out of standart rooms and hotel decoration. No tv in the room but there are very interresting books.
