For sure Great Northern is one of the best hotels in London. It is perfectly located near St. Pancras station as well as underground station. Hotel staff is absolutely amazing - they are really firendly and helpful. Rooms are stunning (I've stayed at Cubitt room) and well equipped. For sure I would recommend this hotel - so far the best...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 16 April 2017

The GNH is a really nice hotel, if you know what you are booking. If you book it without knowing about the hotel, you may well hate it. The GNH is the very definition of a boutique hotel. It has relatively few rooms (90ish) and they are all very small. Tiny in fact (even the largest "Cubitt" room is small.)...

We stayed here for two days while in London and really cannot say enough about how wonderful the experience was. This hotel is located right next to the Kings Cross Pancras train station. So if you come into the country on the Eurostar this hotel becomes even better for the convenience of its location. You can hop on the tube...

I have stayed at this hotel twice now and I am still amazed by how good this hotel is. Great experience and its location is its trump card. Easy access to the Kings Cross Station and the London Tube makes this hotel a perfect base for a business traveller. I would recommend having breakfast outside as it is cheaper and...

We stayed here for a long weekend in May 2017. The rooms are small, but very well appointed and designed. Amenities are luxurious. We really enjoyed the convenience of being outside the tube station- quick trip anywhere it town. The sidewalk tables outside the bar are ideal for a late night drink or snack and were great for people watching....

Wonderful hotel with tons of amenities. Bedroom small, however, very well appointed and comfortable bedding and pillows. Bathroom well equipped and shower great pressure. I wish they used L'Occitane amenities (Soap, shampoo and conditioner), theirs are good, but not good enough for the hotel's brand.

Dear Maria, Thank you very much for your feedback. It means a great deal to everyone that works here when we get such positive feedback. Regarding the amenities, although I recognise that this is down to personal preference, we have specifically chosen MALIN+GOETZE because we think that its quality aligns perfectly with that of the hotel.

It's the little things that make the difference. As a designer and traveler who spends about 6 months of the year on the road and on the sea, I have a great appreciation for "getting things right" - and the Great Northern Hotel gets it right. With an early morning train, I decided to move hotels the night before partly...

One of London's finest luxury hotels just 25 metres from Eurostar at St Pancras International and actually within Kings Cross Station, offering a 24 hour front desk, free 500mb Wi-Fi and a complimentary comprehensive in-room entertainment package.
