Arriva Hotel Reviews

Average Guest Rating: 3.7'Good' Based on 167 Hotel Reviews
Leigh Longley, British

Arriva Hotel was close to Kings Cross Station, which was very convenient. When we arrived the receptionist was welcoming and polite. We were in a triple room on the third floor, it was fairly small but we were only there for one night so that was all we needed. It was fairly clean and the beds were practical but not particularly luxurious (but I suppose that depends on what you're used to). There were tea and coffee making facilities which were fully stocked. It's a decent place to rest your head for a few days and I would recommend it to budget travellers such as myself
