Good 7.8 From 707 reviews

The California, London
The hotel is adorable, with lots of cute touches. It's extremely centrally located, a block from a major transit hub. The staff were friendly and attentive. I can't recommend this place highly enough.

Quirky hotel with style—could use an update
Quirky hotel near Kings Cross. Convenient for travelers making connections elsewhere. Stayed in Room 305. Had a very bathroom layout. Slanted ceiling in shower/tub probably not good for those taller than 6 feet. Note: there are no elevators and no air conditoner.

Nice hotel and very centrelized
It was really nice. The place was very close to Kings Cross and St Pancras station. There were restaurants near by and a very nice park to play basketball. The hotel staff was very friendly and very helpful. They were really nice. The rooms were comfortable and very clean. I enjoyed opening the windows at night and just letting the cold breeze come in instead of using AC. We really had a nice stay there and would definitely come back. There are no elevators and the stairs are pretty narrow. So just keep that in mind when you book.
