Cute but loud
It’s a real sweet little hotel just off of busy King Crossing station. Comfortable, really nice staff. Only draw back is it was extremely load. Thin walls, windows and doors. We could hear the guy snoring in the room across the hall. Thank goodness for sleep sounds on our phone.

Small but Sexy....
Thought it was great. So close to Kings Cross. The hotel was very charming and small but well appointed rooms. The lounge was super sexy. And their sister hotel/restaurant on the corner was pretty awesome as well. The food was delicious. The staff was very friendly and accommodating.

Great Location - Awesome Hotel
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at The California! I chose it because it's very near the King's Cross & St. Pancras stations in London. It did not disappoint. Lovely staff & service. Hotel has a ton of local character - it's a set of Georgian townhouses that have been converted into a hotel. The room was small - AND it had everything I needed. Great bathroom, comfortable beds and solid wi-fi. The breakfast every morning was excellent. I'll be back. Many thanks!

Convenient location to trains and underground!
Convenient close location to Kings Cross/St Pancras and underground trains. A little too warm on ground floor sleeping at night even in October with window opened. Having a fan would have been nice. Water was warm for a bath but cool for a shower. Breakfast included was a nice feature. Overall a nice stay for a few nights to see London attractions!
