Chic and Reassuring
We are a couple in our early seventies and Kings Cross is an area that makes us feel a little apprehensive especially at night and it is vital for us that we have a hotel close by the railway stations where we can feel safe. (To be fair, there has been much refurbishment in the area and things are now getting better with each visit.)
We were due to arrive at Kings Cross Railway Station at ten in the evening as a couple travelling with another couple and were all pre-booked into the Pullman Hotel. The Pullman is a short walk away on the flat and we made it uneventfully with our luggage in a very short time.
The hotel has had a recent redesign which seemed quite innovative to us and the first impressions were very good. Our room on the sixth floor was at the rear and very quiet which is important to us. Everything expected was to hand and superbly clean. There was more innovation here with the plumbing which takes a little understanding. The shower was walk-in and the controls were near the entrance. There was a large square control for the temperature and above this a smaller square control. Turning the smaller control to the left activated a horizontal shower working at breast height. Turning the control to the right activated an overhead square shower head which produced a vigorous deluge. We soon mastered the 'joystick' control for the hand basin.
This was to be a very short visit and it was straight to bed ready for an early start in the morning. Breakfast was a delight. We were there very soon after the 7 am opening and found the ambience quiet and pleasant and the staff were attentive and helpful. The selection was superb although we did not opt for the cooked items mainly due to time considerations although they looked very inviting. The coffee was particularly good.
Our travel colleagues were also very impressed. We shall certainly use this hotel again as will our friends and maybe extend our visit by a day or two as the bus tube and rail transport links are so good as to make this a convenient base for visits to London attractions.
