    Hotel near to St Pancras station and nice park opposite for the children to run in.

    Very noisy guests in next room. Strong smell of drains in bathroom made the stay very unpleasant - so strong we couldn't take a shower. Breakfast was poor. Whole hotel was very shabby. For what we got, it was hugely expensive. A dreadful stay. I wouldn't recommend it at all.

    Price. London was very busy and hotels full. Therefore had to pay a crazy price for this standard of hotel.

    Being so close to Kings Cross station we were within 1 km of St Pancras Eurostar.The room was clean. Breakfast was tasty.

    The room should have an alarm clock, radio.

    Absolutely nothing. I felt I was ripped off

    The place is an absolute ripoff. I paid £180 for a single room for 1 night. I was moved from one room to another as the wifi in my first room did not connect. The shower washed the wall and not me. I could adjust the shower head. No bath mat hence soaking wet floor. Bathroom door wouldn't stay closed. I had to prop my bag up against it The breakfast was a disgrace and inedible. Bitter instant coffee, 2 slices toasted pappy white bread, tasteless proccessed cheese slices and cold boiled eggs with grey yolks. For £180 I expected 10 times better, as I get in other major cities around the UK and across the world.

    Location only.

    Bathroom door didn't lock. It was very run down. They had 5 beds in a room that made it very crowded with hardly any room to move. It was a cheek to call it a family room! Breakfast was poor with a cramped room that looked more like a school canteen. Room was difficult to get to with suitcases as it was down a very small winding staircase in the basement.

    Location.

    The room was far too small for 3 adults to share. I have stayed in hotels with en suites bigger! Only suitable for 2 adults & 1 small child at a push. Not suitable for spending any time in except sleeping. Impossible to get dressed in shower room/toilet, thereby no privacy should you want it. Make sure you are comfortable with listening to your fellow travellers using a toilet as you have no option but to listen to everything they do in the bathroom.

    Very good

    Good location, nice staff

    Some people may be disappointed by lack of real English breakfast, but for me was ok. The tap and shower was tricky to use, but finally I figured out that you need to turn on the light in the bathroom for 10 min to get hot water.

    The main thing I liked about this hotel was the location very close to Kings Cross and St Pancras railway stations. I had an early morning Eurostar to catch so I needed to be close to St Pancras station. Also the room was clean.

    I did not like the room much as it was very cramped and there was too much furniture in it. The door to the toilet area would not open fully as there was a chest of drawers behind the door. I couldn't get any hot water out of the shower, it only ran cold. Only one towel was provided and no bathmat. The only bin in the room was a very small bin in the toilet area. The tv was watchable on the analogue setting but on Freeview there was constant interference. The breakfast was very basic and the coffee was so bad I didn't drink it.

    The room is extremely small. I booked a room for 4-ppl but obviously they just squeeze three beds inside a normal double room and charge us the price for 4-ppl. The room is so fully packed that we can’t even open our luggage on the floor. Staff is unhelpful. The location is convenient. However the neighborhood is not so good, very noisy and does not seem safe at night.

    Fabulous

    I'm not really picky about where I sleep but I felt I needed to get at least 2 nights' rest erode moving to my friend's flat. I would like to reccommend better shampoo and soap as they were hard to use but in all honesty, Elmwood Hotel is a very cozy place.

    Just provide better shampoo and soap please and maybe a dollop of body lotion

    Fabulous

    I booked this hotel as it was very discounted and close to Kings Cross/St. Pancras station (convenient). I was expecting a grotty, noisy hotel but instead found a very quiet, very clean hotel in a fantastic location. It's just 2 minutes walk from the station and there is a small green/park directly outside. There was no noise during the night in my basement room (number 1). I did not have time for breakfast so cannot comment.I Found the checkin staff member friendly and helpful, and the room was spotless and warm despite a very cold March day. I paid £40 (heavily discounted) for a single room—though was given a triple. The rooms are typical of London hotels—tiny, but pleasant and a great base for a short trip.

    I was dissapointed with the facility but the only positive thing is that it was close to my the location of the meeting I was attending.

    The rooms are old, blanket looks dirty and has burning spots. Walls need repairing and at least painting. Lot of noise when other guests are coming to their rooms, after midnight. Not a good value for the money spent!

    Fabulous

    the staff were brilliant,couldnt do enough. and it was reall lovely and warm on such very cold march days.

    the thing i was really very dissapointed with elmwood hotel,is that i would have loved to have a bar area to relax in and maybe a food area so we didnt have to go out to eat,or bring food back, and also room service. i really hate going down to breakfast and would have prefered to have it brought up to the room. i would greatfully have paid the extra.
