Arnella Aslan , British

Polite and helpful staff. Room was more than adequate for my needs. Lovely and warm, and very comfortable bed. Very close to Kings Cross. A well stocked supermarket round the corner. I will definitely book Melville Hotel again

Peter Norris, English

It was ok, the room was very small, the bathroom even smaller, but it was clean beds very comfortable and a great location, overall good hotel near Kings Cross.

Stephen Owen, British

The room at Melville Hotel was adequate and the hotel is in a great location. Breakfast was ok - a wider choice of cereal would have been appreciated. All in all it was a clean hotel with friendly staff.

Kerri, Australian

Really easy check-in with friendly staff. Great location, so handy for Kings Cross Station. My room was very small but it was nicely done. Melville Hotel is perfectly adequate for a short stay

Kathleen Raisbeck, British

I stayed in room 60 in this Central London hotel. My only problem was that |I was kept awake all night by pipes in the wall next to the window, banging all night. They would stop and just as I was trying to get to sleep, they would start again! My son and his wife stayed in a different room and didn't have this problem. Also the television kept losing its signal. I would stay at this hotel again, but not in room 60
