Stayed one night at the GNR hotel between King s Cross and St Pancras having just “landed with the Eurostar”. (A) it s super convenient from a location point of view for all my meetings with the Tube
(B) i was located on 5th floor overlooking the new glassroof of King s cross and it was (2 windows) very quiet. Reception is small and cumbersome when 2 guests with bags.
Staff was welcoming and helpful, priced at GBP340 with Breakfast, Room was large, very dark brown chocolate walls and ceilings, nice wood panelling. Brass and stainless steel appliances.
Nice double shower, needed to tap some of the little plasticky hoses to have water running straight, (generic comment about hotels: these gets chalked up and a bit of cleaning one a while does not hurt!).
Bed was firm and comfortable, 2 usb charging points but only by one bed side table. You don t need a PhD to operate the light switches.
Had a drink at the bar, good buzz with guests and travellers waiting for their trains.
Overall a better experience than staying in the west end for the same price point.
When I booked this, i didn’t have the highest expectation, given that the price was good value vs other associated chain hotels and also how noisy Kings Cross generally is. I’ve taken the time to write this to help guide others. If you are staying in London for two nights and need some space and comfort, there are more astute choices especially if you are couple. If you are travelling solo, need a really nice, small, quiet but modern equipped room, this is an excellent choice. Clean, cute and well co-ordinated, this hotel benefits from great sound proofing and is central for early train travel. Slept well which isn’t always guaranteed in hotels and would definitely recommend on the criteria above.
