Dirty Hotel Rip Off

Would not recommend this hotel, on first arrival the doorway was dirty and looked like it had not been cleaned for months. We were allocated a room on the second floor to the front of the building, the room did not have aircon so the windows had to be left open which meant you could not sleep for the traffic noise, the room itself was well used but not clean, with what looked like spit marks on the walls and windows, I have travelled a lot and don't mind a well used room as long as it is clean. Day two, the idea of servicing the room was to put a new towel and toilet roll in the room. The corridors outside smelt of sweat and dust. I would have cancelled this hotel if I could have got a full refund but my booking was non refundable. The only plus side for this Hotel is its location close to Kings Cross, if I had paid £30.00 a night I might not feel so ripped off, you can get much better than this place for far less money.

Ideal base for visit

Ideal for a short stay when basically all you want to do at the hotel is sleep and shower. The room was quiet and clean, the bed was comfortable and shower was A1. right next to Maion Line and underground hub.

Comfortable & Convenient

Arriva was well located with the Eurostar train at St Pancras just 7min walk away. The only thing I did not like was the lack of ventilation in the bedrooms. Our room had one window and not much air came in. As it was hot the room became uncomfortable. A wall fan for air circulation on those hot days would be so good. Otherwise very happy with the stay, service and location.

Convenient friendly nice hotel

Stayed one night. Small rooms, but modern can clean rooms and hotel. Very friendly staff, only a short walk (and easy to find) from Kings Cross station. Simple continental breakfast. Will stay again. G

Good location for Kings Cross

Good location for Kings Cross and the tube. Price we got at 60GBP per night for a double ensuite was v. good for London. Room is basic but perfectly adequate, and they have a lift which most of these hotels don't have. Cleanliness could have been better in the bathroom, but on the whole it was OK. Bed comfy. Continental breakfast only so so: toast, cornflakes, tea and coffee. One morning they offered yogurt, one morning they had some cheese slices, one morning they had some ham slices! Counter staff are friendly, breakfast staff are rather grim!

The Arriva Hotel is very well

The Arriva Hotel is very well placed for Kings Cross and St Pancras stations. The rooms are small but OK if you are just using it as a base as we did, and because you can store your luggage there until you check in or after you check out without having to pay the hefty fees at the stations. If you are after a hearty breakfast, this isn't the place for you - cereals and toast is all you get with tea or coffee. The Breakfast room is also fairly small so you may end up waiting for a table, but you get what you pay for and for the price, I have no complaints. I would stay here again wehn using Eurostar.

Stayed here because of its close

Stayed here because of its close poximity to Eurostar as we had an early train. Read previous reviews and was a bit dubious about staying here, but I found it clean and tidy. the room was small, so wouldn't recommend a long stay here, but for our purpose was fine. Breakfast didn't start untl 7.30 so missed that and can't comment

Arriva Hotel is an excellent value

Arriva Hotel is an excellent value for money accommodation in an ideal location with good connections to the rest of london via tube or bus. the hotel rooms are clean, have a fridge, tea and coffee making facilities and a small tv. The breakfast suits me in that it is fairly simple but the most important part is good friendly service and lovely strong coffee. For value for money it would be hard to beat the arriva hotel

Room was VERY small. Double bed

Room was VERY small. Double bed pushed agaist one wall & just enough room to edge down other side. Hotel was clean & staff OK but next to busy road , walls and ceilings were thin and lots of noise from adjacent rooms and rooms above. Don't think I would use this hotel again at this price.
