Superb 9.2 From 227 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Above the usual Standard
Fantastic me place to stay and convenient for Kings Cross. Staff very friendly and helpful and upgraded my room for free. Excellent room facilities. Particularly liked the casting option on TV. Only criticism was shower a bit basic and underpowered for such a high class venue.

Laptops banned in the library lounge after 6pm
They have a policy of not allowing laptops in the lounge after 6. Not great if you’re travelling on business.
Maggie, gb1 night business trip
Good 6.0
Good hotel, but didn’t like the windowless room.
Stayed in the windowless cosy room. Didn’t like it, weirded me out. Not nice, not having a window. Kind staff and they did ask me if I didn’t want an upgrade.

Fantastic First Stop at The Standard
Brilliant first stay here - great check in experience and assistance, and complimentary upgrade too. Room was outstanding - massively spacious, funky, great bed, shower, working space etc.. my base in London moving forward. Didn't try breakfast or bar but both looked great too.
Glenn, gb1 night business trip
Very good 8.0
Nice but why so few vegan options?
Very pleasant hotel and service in many ways and cool vibe, but in 2020 the lack of vegan dinner options was surprising and disappointing to see: both in the upstairs restaurant (somehow their 'cauliflower taco' isn't vegan) and also in the downstairs restaurant, there were so few options (1 or 2 sides maybe). Likewise, the evening room service (from what I saw) only offered an expensive vegan caesar salad, aka lettuce leaves covered in coconut fake cheese). Would come back but not before checking the menu. Sorry for moaning but I stayed 3 nights and genuinely had to eat out twice - so unnecessary as I would have happily paid a premium and simple, tasty vegan food isn't expensive to prepare.
