Just off Euston Road on the left handsideof Belgrove Road the California is recognisable by two illiminated black and glitter orbs atop the gateposts. The welcome is friendly and the reception is made up of quirkily placed old suitcases. The common parts are very clean and this follows throughout the hotel and in the bedrooms. I was delighted to find through quite a narrow entrance way that the bathroom was quite spacious and not ony had a bath but also a rainhead shower as well as a straight spray shower. The water was hot pressure good and made for a warm and comfortable rest in a slightly hard bed, again with very clean and fresh linen. Tv and plenty of tea and coffee on a tray in the wardrobe. A decent Bodum kettle. A good hairdrier on the wall. Everything for a pleasant over night stay in London for busines sor shopping. No dinner or fancy seating areas, but there are comfy sofas and a pleasant outside seating space for more clement weather. Breakfast is served in the lower floor room offering juices, continental breakfast as well as well cooked and plentiful sausages, bacon, tomatoes and sadly hard poached eggs. I do enjoy a soft yolk! Toast etc. Sufficient to send you on your way to enjoy what the City has to offer. Very reasonable cost for the amenity and would recommend California for shopping and a city break as well as a quick overnight on business
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The California is a charming, modern bed and breakfast, less than a minute's walk away from King's Cross and St. Pancras stations. Our 60 stylishly refurbished rooms, each one cosy and comfortable, are spread over four Georgian townhouses, and we've retained as much of the original architecture as possible; our windows, corridors and staircases are all original. This means that we don't have a lift, but we do keep our reception open 24 hours a day, include breakfast and high speed WiFi in all our rates and have just opened our new bar, lounge and private terrace for our guests to enjoy. Welcome to The California London. Visit anytime, explore every time. ... more less
