I stayed at three hotels in this area, and this one was the clear winner. For a budget, European-style hotel, it was pretty spacious. The staff were friendly and the hotel was quiet. It helped that my room was on the ground floor because there was no lift. Another bonus was that the room had a fan, which helped circulate... More

This was the best all-around hotel experience we had in London out of three different businesses. Liked that it was *extremely* close to Kings Cross station and had en-suite bathrooms. Did not actually take advantage of this, but breakfast was included.

Our group of 8 had many bags of luggage, odd requests, unusual questions. All were managed and met with great smiles, helpful suggestions and friendly service. The facilities are basic, clean and functional but it is the people who stand out and made our stay there a great one. Kudos to Brandon and Silvana for great frontdesk service. And to... More

I stayed at the Central Hotel whilst I came into London to visit a couple of design exhibitions, travelling on my own. I suffer from chronic fatigue so I wanted to stay somewhere very central, and near the station that I arrived in and near to a tube station so I didn't have to do too much travelling/walking each day....

The hotel is very well located in Kings Cross, just a couple of minutes walk from Kings Cross station where you'll find a number shops, bars and restaurants. We were in room 31 which was very small and was quite stuffy; the bathroom had an awful chemical smell and the water did not drain well in the shower stall. It's... More

Needed a hotel at late notice for one night to catch a train from kings cross the following day. Thankfully they had a room available at a reasonable price. Location perfect, stones throw away from the station. Staff friendly and welcoming at check in. Got a 3 bed room on the ground floor which was excellent, could not fault it.... More

Really, really nice staff. Tiny, cramped room and tiny, cramped bathroom. Both were very clean, though. Excellent location close to two major train stations. Breakfasts were not very good, though the breakfast staff was sweet and nice. Not enough room in the breakfast area for all the lodgers. I'd stay again just because of the people and the location.

Hotel located within stones throw of kings cross station,staff helpful and friendly, wifi works well, quality of hotel poor- small rooms, not ensuite, shower stops working half way through due to ( presumably) pressure issues ( was on the 3rd floor),dining room quite small and guests have to sit on round tables together rather than separately. All a bit cramped.
