Thread bare carpets, dirty, grimey, generally not pleasant. We walked
into our room which was tiny. The double bed took up most of the floor space!! The tiny TV was INSIDE the wardrobe & the reception is so poor you barely get 1 channel!! At first we thought they hadn't given us an ensuite room until we realised what appears to be a built
in wardrobe is actually the shower & toilet!!!! The door to the "en-suite" is a slatted wooden wardrobe door - not exactly private!! The mattress was thin, lumpy & uncomfortable - we had a dreadful nights sleep. The breakfast was awful & they gave us shot glasses for orange
juice!! I wish we had gone somewhere else. A complete rip off for the
£70 they charged us for one night - it will be Travel Lodge for us next time!!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The California is a charming, modern bed and breakfast, less than a minute's walk away from King's Cross and St. Pancras stations. Our 60 stylishly refurbished rooms, each one cosy and comfortable, are spread over four Georgian townhouses, and we've retained as much of the original architecture as possible; our windows, corridors and staircases are all original. This means that we don't have a lift, but we do keep our reception open 24 hours a day, include breakfast and high speed WiFi in all our rates and have just opened our new bar, lounge and private terrace for our guests to enjoy. Welcome to The California London. Visit anytime, explore every time. ... more less
