    About this area


    Located in London's London City Centre neighborhood, Central Hotel is in the city center and near the airport. Wimbledon Tennis Club and Twickenham Stadium are worth checking out if an activity is on the agenda, while those wishing to experience the area's popular attractions can visit BT Tower and ZSL London Zoo. Coca-Cola London Eye and Sea Life London Aquarium are not to be missed. Our guests love the hotel's convenience to public transportation: King's Cross St. Pancras Underground Station is just steps away and Russell Square Underground Station is 11 minutes by foot.

    Nice, friendly staff, but an uncomfortable stay

    Want to start this review on a good note, as we found the staff to be most friendly and helpful and tried their best for us. However, we regret the booking we made since according to the hotels.com website, this hotel was supposed to offer us a room with a Queen sized bed. However, once we arrived, we discovered that this hotel does not have any rooms with this size of bed, and we ended up our first sleepless night in a room with a double (or full) sized bed. They later transferred us to a room with extra beds to help correct the problem, but still was not what we were expecting. For us, the beds were not very comfortable. We were however very pleased with the English Breakfast offered each morning of our stay, which was delicious and gave us lots of energy! The rooms are as described; most quite small, unless you are reserving a superior room, but even in these rooms, if you get a private bathroom, it is also very small inside. It was a cozy hotel and most conveniently located near St. Pancras International train station which was our main motivation for choosing this hotel.

    4/5 Good

    • Disliked: Amenities

    The location is fantastic - literally steps away from the train station. Lots of great, inexpensive eating. Most importantly (for myself, a single female traveller) the area felt safe. The breakfast is good and they assign eating times to minimize foot traffic in the dining area. Cons: No elevator (lift). The single, twin bed room I was in was so tiny it was hard to maneuver around with myself, the bed and the suitcases I had. The room has a sink, but you have to go down two flights of stairs to use a toilet or shower, though the bathroom was very clean. The mattress was hard as a rock (which may be preferable for some, but I found it made my back hurt). Overall, for a night or two, it is good value for the price and phenomenal location. The staff were all very nice.

    Stayed at this hotel several times before, sadly on this occasion I was very disappointed with the room which was cramped and there was a constant draft through the window which was very uncomfortable whilst trying to sleep .

    Very clean helpful staff great location. The only slight problem was the breakfast room its not very big can only seat about 20 so some gusted had to wait on the stairs for a table.

    Great overnight stop on the way to France.

    I stayed here the night before catching an early Eurostar the following morning. The hotel was ideal, just across the road from St Pancras. My room was quite small, but fresh and clean and comfortable. The staff were welcoming and tried to find me an upgrade. I did pay an extra £10 to get an en-suite shower room. The hotel seemed well looked after and the room was well equipped.
