“Great hotel”
Reviewed 13 December 2013

The small bedrooms and the lack of an elevator, are amply compensated by the perfect location of the hotel (only 1 minute from Kings Cross station) , the comfortable beds, the fact that the hotel is very clean, the good breakfast and most important of all the hospitality and friendliness of the staff.

Stayed 1 night to go to see loose women recorded. I left my purse on the seat in the hotel and never realised till I received a phone call to say it was behind the reception. I was touched by the honesty of the staff. You hear of so many negative things these days. The room was spotless, great English breakfast great rate for night. Location was excellent right opposite St Pancras and Kings Cross. Would stay there again .

Room Tip: Superior triple room

If you're going to visit London this is the place to stay, without doubt!

Just two steps from King Cross, very good location to transport between airports or city center. The room was really warm and the bed comfortable. The toilet and shower, shared outside the room, were very clean every day. And of course, english breakfast was nice!

When I get back to London, for sure I'm going to repeat staying at Central Hotel.

Room Tip: Try staying at the basement, really quiet.

We stayed here during our 2 day trip from Paris. We only needed one night, and there were 5 of us, so we booked the family suite, which consisted of one large room with a double bed, and two twins, and a private bathroom with shower. We had a street level room in the front, which was a bit noisy at times, but in general, it worked fine for us. The hot breakfast is served in the morning from 7 - 9 am, and consisted of dry cereal (corn flakes or bran flakes), with plates of ham, cheese, and tomatoes on a buffet as you entered. Drink options were orange juice, coffee, and hot chocolate. The hot breakfast consisted of a slice of ham, one hard cooked egg, a large link sausage, pork and beans, and toast. The pork and beans tasted right of the can (Van de Kamps?), but the rest of the food was good. You can have scrambled eggs upon request. The service was excellent, and the staff at the hotel was helpful and friendly. If you need to check your baggage (we were staying for the full day after checkout), they don't really have a formal system, you leave your bag in the lobby, and if you have a backpack with valuables they keep it for you in the office. This made me a little nervous, but everything worked out well and we would definitely consider staying here again! The location is on a perpendicular street to the main street (Euston Street) where Kings Cross train station is located. It is about a 10 to 15 minute walk to some of the hop-on hop-off bus stops that we utilized for getting around London.

Room Tip: Rooms in back of hotel, and would recommend your own bathroom if possible.

I visited this hotel for a weekend in November 2013, I booked a triple room for 2 people as it had an ensuite with it, many of the rooms have shared bathrooms. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from kings cross station, across Euston road. The hotel is an old building, with lots of narrow staircases so it's not suitable for disabled people, it doesn't have any wheelchair access. The staff working there are friendly and helpful, the service at breakfast was very efficient. Our room was clean and today, clean bedding and towels. The shower in the room was fantastic, there was also a decent TV in the room. The breakfast was basic but tasty, sausage, egg, bacon and beans. The toast was lovely thick white bread. The location and price of this hotel makes it a top hotel to go to in central london.

This was our first time at this hotel and I must say we will definitely choose again this hotel. The room that was given to us couldn't have been better. The breakfast offered was excellent.Very friendly and very helpful customer service - staff always ready to help out at all times. For a family this hotel offers good value for money and is located in an excellent area both in terms of commuting and also dining out.

not a great experience - small room, toilet / shower outside, better for low budget travellers. Pos aspects include that it was clean and not too noisy. The location is just across from King's Cross station.
