Our Recent stay at the Central Hotel
We stayed near King Cross Underground because it is a central location and hub for many of the underground routes. Being a Train Station, the area was not as nice as we had liked. But we did most of our activities during the day and were back at the hotel long before dark. Took a while to get use to the small European rooms. Really, our walk in closet in the states is bigger then our room (including bathroom) at this hotel. Breakfast was very good and was surprised to see eggs being served to order. The staff was very helpful and made the stay worthwhile. Don't know if I would pick this hotel again, then again all hotels in the area are of the same vein, no elevators and small rooms.

Small but good mattress
Lots of places to eat nearby, walking distance. Small rooms with small bathroom. Beds are comfortable

Perfect location
The room was extremely small. Perfect location, about a block away from St. Pancreas/Kings Cross train and tube station. This station is on the Piccadilly line!

Exceptional 10.0
perfect to St Pancras or Kings Cross departures
very nice people at this hotel, to a person, with a nice made-to-order breakfast. And literally 100 years from St Pancras and 150 yards from Kings Cross. Peace of mind if you have any early train out and super easy getting luggage back and forth

Cozy with a flare!
This place was awesome. I hit 6 cities in two weeks across four different countries and this was by far, the best place I stayed. It was perfectly located, extremely cozy and the staff was super friendly. I am definitely going to stay here again next time I visit the UK.
