Very practical location near King's Cross.

Pros: Price is ok for London, staff was friendly.
Cons: The room size is probably difficult to improve, but still remains a bit less than ideal...
Location: Close to King's Cross and St Pancras stations - five minutes to British Library, a bit longer to British Museum...
The hotel is extremely practical for anyone who wants to stay near the British Library, British Museum etc. On arrival, finding the entrance was somewhat difficult, since the building is currently partially "hidden" behin scaffolding. The staff was friendly, but the room was one of the smallest hotel rooms I ever saw, be it in London or elsewhere. The "grab and go" breakfast consists of a paper bag with muffin, fruit, orange juice... On the positive side, wifi worked well and the bathroom was ok...

Dear Guest Thank you for taking the time to complete your review after you recent stay at The House of Toby London. The feedback of our guests is important to us and I was genuinely sorry that we did not meet your expectations. I am very sorry to hear that the room was not big enough as expected. My humble apologies when it comes to Room Sizes as there is very little we can do in such area like King's Cross Area,however we have done our best to offer all the facilities in the room with a practical solution. It will be our pleasure to welcome you back at The House OF Toby on your next visit in city. Kind regards Viral Manager

Für mich war der Aufenthalt ideal. Ein paar Minuten von Underground entfernt, ruhig. Nettes, sehr hilfsbereites Personal. Zimmer eher klein, aber Preis-/Leistung stimmt.

Ging so, für eine Nacht ist es ok. Leider hatte es vom Vorgänger noch alte Socken und Unterwäsche im Zimmer. Beim Lavabo im Bad war der Mechanismus zum Stöbsel defekt.

Das Zimmer war super sauber aber unheimlich klein. Wir wussten nicht wohin mit unseren Koffern, da am Boden keine 2 Koffer platz hatten.Unter dem Bett war es nicht möglich. Das Zimmer befand sich im unteren Stock. Es hatte ein sehr kleines Fenster das in einem Schacht war, daher nicht wirklich Tageslicht. Da wir auf einem Kurztrip da waren, nur schliefen und duschten, war das Zimmer ganz ok für uns. Die Lage des Hotels war sensationell, da es ein paar Gehminuten von der U-Bahnstation Kings Cross war
