Clink261 was the best of the best

Mary Catherine Banno, Irish

Hello I would like to say a big thank you! I arrived with the wrong type of money to stay here and was advised in every option that I could take but unfortunately I was too late to change at my bank that the guy at reception explained to me how to get there aswell! A genuinely really nice guy I was a bit upset and was ready to leave and he made me feel calm and welcome and arranged for my cash to be taken anyway and give me a room I was really thankful for that as it was my first time in London by myself. My room at Clink261 was really clean and fresh bed was comfortable and the showers was really good even though shared your individual shower is very private just the right temperature. I didn't use the other facilities as I was out all days that I was there but they were on looking at of the same standard clean and fresh. I would really recommend anybody to stay here right beside the station and walking distance to museums and galleries perfect spot. Thank very much again to the guy that helped me out sorry forgot your name! But will never forget how you helped me thank you

The reception staff were very friendly and helpful, the beds and quilts were a little on the small side but did for the night, only one shower seemed to be working for the Gents, overall not too bad and would book Clink 261 again

Staying at Clink261 can be a satisfying experience. Bathrooms were always clean, free breakfast was the basic continental one, staff was friendly and ready to help. Very close to Kings Cross tube and buses. The only negative aspect I would say is that the place is relatively old and the rooms are not always very clean. But worth trying at such price

Afrida Ahmed, Canadian

Clink 261 was clean, and the staff very helpful. Not to mention, it is located in a prime location only 5 minutes-walk away from King's Cross. Would highly recommend if you are going to be sightseeing in central London and area
