My teen children and I stayed at the MacDonald Hotel, a very short walking distance from St Pancras and Kings Cross from June 29 until July 02 of this year. It is newly renovated and our triple/quad room was tremendous value for money (248 pounds total for three of us for three nights). The room was very functional and practical with ensuite shower and coffee and tea maker and WiFi in each room. The owner is from Malta and very welcoming and helpful with directions and recommendations. Breakfast was more than adequate with a helpful staff who kept an eye on refills without being asked. This hotel is ideally situated to be used as an inexpensive base for spending time in London and the Underground brought us wherever we needed to go. We would recommend this hotel/B&B to anyone, including the difficult to please.
Unique Quality: There is a park to walk in across the street and the Underground and St Pancras for the Eurostar are a very short walking distance. Very convenient location
In December 2004 I stayed two nights in the MacDonald Hotel which seems to be a perfect place for budget travellers. The staff of this family run hotel is friendly and very helpful at any time. The rooms are clean, very quiet and equipped with private bath or sink and shared bath.
Directions: The MacDonald Hotel is situated in underground zone 1 near the Kings Cross St. Pancras station. It is located in a quiet side street just 3 minutes on foot from the station.
MacDonald and Devon Bed and breakfast.
This is a family run bed and breakfast at the edge of Zone 1 of London.
Unique Quality: One of the cheapest B&B in central London. It is easily accessible from the underground, just about 5 minutes walk from the King's Cross underground. It is clean and comfortable than most hostels, but a bit old.
English breakfast is included in the price. Breakfast is not fantastic, but good enough for London's prices. I had stayed in their en-suite double and triple with TV and tea-making facilities. The rooms were quite small, but normal for London.
Some people might not want to stay in that area. At night, there are many homeless and strange looking people loitering around the station. This hotel is along a quiet street though. I had stayed here 4 times before and nothing happened to me. If I stay here, I would avoid going back too late.
Directions: It is along a street opposite the King's Cross station.
