Guests Reviews

We like to be heard – and so do our guests. Listen to what they have to say here.


The location was perfect, close to King Cross station, the room was new and clear, everything in the hotel was clean and tidy, fantastic breakfast, lovely staff. We will come back for sure, and I have already recommended it!


It was good, even if the room and the bed are small, and we can hear a lot everything around us (in the street or just upstairs) i think it would be great if you add sleepers with the bath accessories.


Close to St Pancras.


I didn’t eat breakfast but my partner did. The range of food was good and my partner said the food was good quality and well cooked. the room was small but well equipped (good kettle and decent quality teabags) and quite stylish. Good lighting and mirrors.


Good: Clean, very smartly presented, would certainly go again, great location for st pancras station.


Repeat visit, still good

I have stayed at The California before as it is very handy for King’s Cross & St Pancras train stations. As a four star hotel, it is a little bit nicer than some of the budget hotels I have used in the same area. But similar to most hotels around here it is a collection of old houses joined together – expect narrow corridors, uneven floors and lots of stairs!

The hotel send emails in advance of your arrival with all the info you might need (& giving you the opportunity to raise any special requests).

This visit I was upgraded from a standard single room – which was a nice surprise. Although when I entered the room I wasn’t sure what I had been upgraded to, as there didn’t seem to be a bed! It took me a few minutes to figure out that the bed was on hydraulics and could be raised to ceiling height when not in use (to allow better use of the floor space). Some signage in the room about this would probably be helpful!

There is a buffet breakfast included – with hot & cold items available, all served in the basement dining room. On ground level there is a small art deco bar.

Good, reliable and strong wifi.


Great, affordable option in the area. Room was small, but had everything I needed. Service was friendly and nice. Slow wifi in room.
