“ Address: 10 - 42 Kings Cross Road / London WC1X 9LN / England „
Recently we visited London for New Years Eve and tried our best to get somewhere decent to stay. However, we ended up in a Travelodge.
One of the more annoying aspects of our visit to the Travelodge was the ten pound payment we were asked to pay to get into our rooms one hour early. Because we were a little early and we wanted to dump our bags down before going out and about I n town, we thought a little more goodwill cheer would have been nice - not so. Travelodge seem to find any opportunity to make a little more money out of their 'guests'.
I was a little surprised to see some McDonalds chips left discarded on the floor of the lift - I was even more surprised to see the manageress walking straight past and not batting an eyelid. Shoddy!
With any Travelodge you get what you paid for, in this case not a huge amount. The room is a perfunctory affair with a bed and bathroom but you expect some semblance to cleanliness. I was a little disappointed with the cleanliness of this room. The bed was pretty poor - bending substantially in the centre rather like an isosceles triangle.
In all, Travelodge King's Cross was pretty average, but suited our purpose pretty well. I would have liked to have been a little closer to town but the hotels were a little more expensive the closer you got to the centre. I suppose if you are commuting back and forth into town or travelling from Kings Cross early in the morning, then this hotel is a good bet.
