Customer review

07 April 2007 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Good Atmosphere, friendly people. The staff are all pretty cool. At first I though the painted doors were a bit weird but it actually really helps to identify your room when smashed! Kings Cross is a bit seedy but it's a short walk from the city centre and your pretty close to the train station anyway.
