About Us

Welcome to The California

The California is a charming, modern bed and breakfast, less than a minute’s walk away from King’s Cross and St Pancras stations.

The 60 stylishly refurbished rooms at our King’s Cross bed and breakfast – each one cosy and comfortable – are spread over four Georgian townhouses, and we’ve retained as much of the original architecture as possible (our windows, corridors and staircases are all original).

This means that we don’t have a lift, but we keep our reception open 24 hours a day and you’ll always find one of our team happy to help you with luggage. You are welcome to use our secure luggage room around the corner from reception during your stay.


Make yourself at home in our bar, lounge and terrace

All our rates include breakfast and high speed WiFi, and every room has a modern en-suite bathroom.

Our comfortable lounge, bar and private terrace is open throughout the day for guests to relax and socialise in.

Join us in The California Bar and enjoy a free drink for every room when you book directly with us. You can read more about our Free Drink at The California Bar in the offers area of our website.

Check in is from 2pm, and check out by 11am. However, if you’d like a little extra time, we’re happy to arrange an early check in or late check out for a small additional fee. For further details, read our Everything you need to know before you stay post on our King’s Cross Blog.
