Convenient for trains
Nice little hotel. Terrific breakfast. No air conditioning and the fan provided was too noisy to use.

Hard to checkout of the Hotel California
We loved the California; sure it doesn't have a lift but they were in touch beforehand to offer help and put us on the ground floor anyway. Their attitude is proactive giving guests the impression that they want to help you enjoy your stay. Convenient for Kings X/St Pancras stations and a conference I was attending across the road... and a whole load of other things.

Nice Price but Cramped
This is an okay hotel close to the train station. The price is reasonable but the rooms are very very very small. Had two suitcases and could not move around. Not place to set anything. Didn't like being below street level either. Very narrow passageways.

Loved The California
I have opportunity to stay in central London regularly and this is the best quality mid-price place I have ever stayed. Clean, quiet, rooms with bathrooms en suite. Wonderful staff who were very attentive to our needs (we had six rooms). Hot traditional English breakfast. Tube access is 2 minutes away. It is in a converted Georgian row house which for some is a red flag, but I've stayed in none better for this style/age of building.
