Kings Cross is one of the busiest areas of London due to its exceptional transport facilities and National and International rail connections. Because of the constant buzz of arrivals and departures at all times of the day and night, Kings Cross is absolutely jam packed full of accommodation to suit every type of business visitor. From convenient budget hotels a short walk from the train station, to luxury hotels placed slightly off the main commuter trail.
So whether you’re only staying for a short time in between travel, or you’re based here for a while meeting prospective investors for your business or already based in a serviced office and just needing somewhere for the night, Kings Cross will have the perfect accommodation to suit you.
You can expect a broad range of budget hotels in Kings Cross as plenty of business visitors need short, comfortable stopovers between long commutes. Tune Hotel is a really good choice if you’re looking for a compact, comfortable room that’s only a few minutes’ walk from Kings Cross and St Pancras International. The rooms aren’t particularly quiet, but that should be expected in most hotels in Kings Cross as it is an extremely busy area. Otherwise enjoy the well-designed rooms that contain everything you need to provide you with a good night’s sleep, and the higher floors offer a pretty beautiful view over London which is a bonus.
Other great chain hotels in the area include; Travelodge and Premier Inn both of which are close to the train stations and have excellent availability all year round.
When you’re staying for a bit longer in the area, perhaps scouting out good serviced offices or retail spaces for rent, you might want to stay somewhere with a little bit more personality than the average budget hotel. The Kings Cross Inn is a good option if you want the modern and chic design of a boutique hotel but without the higher prices. Furnishings and room design are contemporary, but little touches like pretty artwork and funky fixtures make the hotel unique. For a splash of colour and earthy, raw textures Hotel Megaro is a good option and reflects the culture and vibrant design of the area without being too in your face. And for shabby chic done really, really well, book yourself into Rough Luxe London where rough and ready textures are treasured and highlighted for their beauty.
When your budget enables you to stay in a 5* hotel, the hotel selection process becomes a little bit more fun because you get to choose from the very finest Kings Cross has to offer. There’s nothing wrong with kicking back in the most comfortable surroundings after a gruelling day of presentations and meetings!
For a room so perfect, clean and turned down it looks like it isn’t real, book into The Great Northern Hotel where every effort has been made to fine tune every minute detail in the room you’re staying in – expect to wonder if you’re in a film set at times.
For the lovers of classic luxury with a modern twist, The St Pancras Renaissance Hotel is a great choice and contains a selection of highly polished, well designed rooms finished to an extremely high spec.
