My wife and I had a lovely stay in simple London hotel! Polite man on reception


Clean bedding and rooms. Helpful and friendly staff. Good breakfast for reasonable rates. Convenient for Kings Cross Station and Tube.

Very basic hotel. There were marks all over walls and pictures missing to make room charmless. Although bedding and bathroom clean the rest of the room felt grubby. Walls extremely thin. Could hear couple upstairs arguing till 4am and I didn't sleep at all for doors banging.

Pleasant stay: clean rooms and comfortable bed. I would definitely book Arriva Hotel again!

Anthony, British

Stayed at Arriva Hotel for 1 night. I wouldn't stay any longer that, just for 1 night. The rooms are very small and it was too hot in the room but it was clean and staff friendly
