Melville Hotel Reviews page 2
We stayed in a triple room and the beds are very confortable. There is a fridge and TV in the room too. The hotel is very well located, because you have the underground and the train very close. The price is very good and the breakfast is fantastic. The only inconvenience is that we had to share the bathroom and the shower, and the shower is not good at all. But in general, I like the hostel and even people are very nice. You can also leave the baggage in the hotel for free, and there is reception 24 hours. I fully recommend it! :)
Cheap but smelly, dusty, old and in need of major renovation. Staff not very helpful. Would not recommend, spend a bit extra for somewhere more comfortable.
The staff was both friendly & helpful. The rooms were small but clean (same applies to shower and toilet), decent breakfast and conveniently located closed to King's Cross
Room was clean, toilet was clean. Stay was good for the price.
I wouldn't recommend this hotel as it's noisy, dirty and as basic as possible: tv with no aerial and an ancient fridge. Overall the price was cheap so you pay for what you get I suppose. I'll never stay there again!
The amount suited the type of accomodation. We paid £21.50/night, for 2 nights in a triple room. It is a secure venue, close to the station, the reception is guarded all night, there are toilets on each level. We didn't have breakfast so we cant speak for that but overall we are pleased. Also, we were surprised to find our room cleaned! When we got back from being out all day. Our room tidied and cleaned, put us in a good mood, Cheers.
Very walm and welcoming. The rooms had clean bedding, the toliet and shower facilities were also clean. Very enjoyable stay. Thank you
Well-equipped and comfortable in a good location. Good value
I've stayed here together with my 2 sons to show them London but if I have known that the hotel was this bad I would have spent more money! We did not use the showers because these were too dirty to stand in and the heat in the room was terrible I could not turn down the radiator for the knob was off. The room was far too small for 3 people and was in bad shape! Maybe this is the quality of 2 star London hotels but I think for the money spend it can be better! I've stayed in many guest houses all over the UK but never experienced a dump like this!
I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights over the weekend. It is fairly basic, but similar to most of the other hotels in Argyle Square - Ive stayed in 8 of them over the years and this is certainly not the worst! Some were considerably more expensive that the Melville, but had the same basic level of facilities! The staff I met are almost all Eastern European, and with one brief exception, they were all friendly and courteous. The room had no wardrobe/chest of drawers, but did have fridge! The room wasn't that small. The breakfast was basic, but there was a choice - cornflakes, muesli, orange and apple juice, mandarin segments. Tea and coffee. On the Saturday there was some ham and processed cheese slices. The ham wasn't offered on the Sunday, but there was still cheese slices and jams. The hotel appeared good value for money, though a neighbouring hotel offers cooked breakfast at the same price as the Melville's basic room and continental breakfast. The hotel's décor and the general ambience might be poor, but then people rarely treat other's property in a good way, so whilst a lack of investment is clear, this is reflected in the prices paid
