Close to St. Pancras and the British Library
Close to St Pancras station. As I had an early start to go on the Eurostar this was close enough for a reasonable price. Originally I was put in a room in floor 3 that had no ladies bathrooms. When I asked for a change of room they did this quickly. The rooms are small so us travellers with lots of luggage had space issues. At least there was a lockable underbed box to store my valuable items. Also the lift was essential to avoid the problems that I had with my luggage in Amsterdam .
