I stayed here for the second time with my friends, it is so so central, the staff are so professional and will go out of their way to help you with any of your needs. The beds are so comfortable with a lovely morning breakfast! Just a stones throw away from Kingscross station, perfect! I will definately stay here again....

Nice budget break for my wife's 60th, stayed in family room with my daughter and son . Not a lot of room, but for the price and a two night stay it was fine. A big plus for us it was so close to kings cross. Staff were polite and breakfast was ok. Would stay again for a short break.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel this past month, in March. I only note this because the weather was mild and there was no need for heating nor air conditioning. We slept with our window open several nights. Even though there is construction going on nearby, and the BUSY train station is just a half block away, the...

The room was on the ground floor room 9, could be a little noisy on a night other guests going up stairs, maybe a sign asking to be a little quieter on a night when returning. Breakfast- had a time of 8:30 but...

Stayed here for 1 night 25/26th Feb 2017 with my granddaughter. It was a lovely hotel, very clean and also easy to find. It was 2 bus stops away from Euston Station or could be walked if you're fit enough. No lift so if you're not quite mobile on your feet ask for a room on ground floor. The room...

The location is very ideal for us traveling to different sights in London, just a stones throw away from Kings Cross and St Pancras station.. The English Breakfast was very sufficient albeit the breakfast area is small so if there are lots of guest, you have to wait until they're done. The stairs are hard to navigate if you have...

Extremely convenient for Kings X/St Pancras, small room but clean and a recently remodelled shower/toilet. Comfortable bed and good breakfast. The Central Hotel was everything I needed for a quick visit and I will certainly use it again next time I am in London. John W
