we arrived at 2.00pm to check-in to be told that we had to wait until 2.30pm for check-in to open. We were offered free refreshments from the hot drinks machine in the dining area while we waited.At 2.30pm EXACTLY we were allowed to check-in along with everyone else who was waiting. NOT A GOOD IDEA.The room was O.K. but dated. Original basin plug replaced with ordinary plastic one leaving a 1-1/2in hole where you could easily loose ring, toothbrush etc. Drawers not closing properly and our room was not cleaned until around 5.30pm on the first day.Buffet breakfast was fine with a reasonable choice.I would stay again though due to location.All staff were helpful and courteous.

Only one night but will use again for longer stay. Room was clean and bed comfy. Continental breakfast was more than adequate. Plenty to eat. A full breakfast could be purchased.. Door lock would not work when we went to the room on arrival. Needed new batteries but these were changed quickly. Good service. Air con only on first and sixth floors so ask on check in.

We had a very comfortable bed in a quiet room. Getting a good nights sleep is very important when you have a busy schedule. Breakfast was very good and efficiently run. We could walk to the British Museum. It's reasonably priced and very close to Kings Cross railway station
V. Good: 3.6/5Stephen - Southport, UNITED KINGDOM - 04/08/2014
Perfectly serviceable. Good central location. Somewhat overrun with students at times. Advertises car parking but that is more difficult than it first appears, and is somewhat down to chance as much as anything else. Wouldn't recommend the car parking aspect.Overall though a good stopover place for central London, with pleasant and helpful staff.

I chose the title because the hotel was just that. I spent many nights twenty or more years ago staying in Travelodges - at that time, they were competitively priced, clean and the rooms were good. As cost cutting set in, poor decoration, paper thin towels, poor beds and a general air of decline made other places better value.We booked at the Royal Scot because of price and location but were greeted at reception by charming staff, our room was tidy and, overlooking the central courtyard, very quiet. Ther were plenty of local places to eat plus the hotel's own restaurant.Breakfast was good with plenty to eat of good quality. Seeing a seemingly never ending stream of guests leaving to join coaches, I was amazed at how quiet the hotel had been.So, surprisingly good value and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a good night but without such extras as uniformed doormen!
Average: 1.7/5Kent - Edinburgh, UNITED KINGDOM - 03/27/2014
Dirty, worn down, cheap. No complimentary shampoo. Unbelievably, there was only hot water in the shower (and the sink) so we couldn't shower on the first night. This was rectified for our second night, but.... The bed was terrible (way too soft). The 'breakfast' was awful. Too crowded, and the food was of very poor quality. It took forever to get clean plates and cutlery out, and when they arrived they were all soaking wet.

We stayed at the Kings Cross Royal Travellodge for one night, as for location spot on. Short walking distance to train stations and tube. So ideal to get around the capital. The hotel catered very well, the rooms where basic but its only a bed for night no intention of staying round all day so its was fine and clean. However could in someways do with a little updating.Breakfast was busy but the opening times where fine and food was generous, however please note at busy times it may difficult to get a table so be patient. The bar was stocked well for a nightcap also. The reception staff where great, very helpful and friendly. We really enjoyed our time in London, and i would stay there again? for the right price definitely.
