    Terrifying Experience!


    Our reception at the Hotel California was the most unprofessional we have ever encountered in 25 years of world travel. The desk clerk was rude and threatening. He accused us of "breaking the law" by not providing advance notice that we were travelling with a young child. He threatened to turn away our family, despite our reservation. After a very stressful thirty minutes, we went across the street and stayed at the Pullman Hotel. The Hotel California insisted on charging our credit card, despite the fact that we declined the room based on a hostile reception and inadequate facilities.

    Physically, the Hotel California has a newly renovated lobby area, but its hallways, staircases and other public areas leave much to be desired. The room we saw has old windows, which allowed for all the noise from the neighbouring street and train stations to bleed through. This is an extremely low-grade hotel. While it may be suitable for young, single, male travellers in search of an affordable alternative to a youth hostel, families, in particular, should think twice before booking here.

    Unique Quality: None! Guests would be far better off staying across the street at the former Novotel, now the Pullman. That is what we ended up doing after being treated so shabbily by the Hotel California desk clerk!

    Very good value


    After checking and checking many webs for a hotel, I found this fantastic hotel and i decided to stay here. Very value for money in central London, near Kings Cross station and metro station. 45 pounds per night for a singel room, included breakfast if you have a computer there is free wifi for all the guest at the hotel. The room is small but enough for one person if only use the room to sleep and have a shower, I had a clean towel every day and linen was changed every two days and the room was allways clean. The staff was very nice and helpfull and I hope to go to this hotel on my next trip to London.

    Después de mirar y mirar en tropecientas webs buscando un hotel encontré en un enlace la web de este hotel que me gustó mucho y decidí reservar mi habitación aquí. El hotel California esta justo en frente de la estación de tren y metro de Kings Cross. Por una habitación individual pagué 45 libras por noche, desayuno incluido nada mal para estar en pleno centro de Londres. La habitación era algo pequeña pero estaba limpia y todos los días tenia toalla limpia y cada dos días sábanas limpias. Si llevas ordenador portatil tienen acceso wifi para los clientes del hotel. El personal era muy amable y te ayudaban en todo, espero volver a este hotel cuando vaya otra vez a Londres.

    Directions: Metro: Kings Cross St Pancras
    Belgrove Street is just in front of Kings Cross Station, between the post office, the barclays bank and burguer king
