London’s other historic hotels pale in comparison to the restored St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel. With 245 rooms, including 38 suites, the St. Pancras is the newest offering to the Kings Cross neighborhood and the only five-star hotel linked to the immensely convenient St. Pancras International train station. Beyond all the leisure activities and services, the in-house spa and men’s barber shop, the hotel doubles as a historical tour destination and portal into London’s architecture and history.
In the Area
You’ll be centrally located in London, steps from British Library and minutes from Cartwright Gardens as well as King’s College London and the London Zoo. If you want to get out of the central London bubble, hop on a Santander bike from one of the many bike stations and drop it back at another stand in the city. You can spend a day exploring the famous Camden market in North London, then catch a performance at the unique arts space at the Roundhouse Theatre. Since much of the development for the 2012 Olympics has been concentrated in London’s East End, that borough has become one of the most transformed areas of the city. Join the city’s cool kids with a picnic in Victoria Park or London Fields, or hunt for vintage finds on Brick Lane.
How to Get There
Love this hotel. It provided a comfy, quiet spot for a meeting made even better by our lovely waiter, Ohio. He was super friendly, very accommodating and professional but, most importantly, very easy on the eye! Made a bunch of middle aged ladies all aflutter!!
This property now ranks as my favorite hotel. It has all the ingredients for a memorable stay: fantastic staff from the moment you approach the entrance; stunningly beautiful exterior and interior; convenient location to many bus lines, the tube, and of course, St. Pancras Station.
At reception we were greeted warmly and offered water. We were staying on a free night certificate, and we paid £50 for an upgrade when we booked. At check in, we were then upgraded to one of the historic rooms, #356.
Let's make this simple - I could live in this room for weeks. No, months.
Breakfast the next morning in The Booking Room was delightful.
I have nothing but accolades for the staff and this beautiful property. If you are leaving from St. Pancras as we were, on the Eurostar, you will be especially happy you stayed here.
Stayed at St Pancras following our Baltic heritage cruise, the building is beautiful and had great recommendation from our travel agent and at the price of one night stay I had high expectations. Sadly I felt the hotel did not live up to those expectations, our cruise line docked at 7am we were off the ship at 9am but could not get into our room until 4pm, the room although adequate it was much smaller than expected there was a step up from the bedroom to the bathroom and was dark with poor lighting making it difficult to see, when we raised the issue the staff agreed that they also had difficulty seeing but that was the theme hotel management was aiming for. that is their perogative but at least provide a standard lamp in the room so if a guest reqired more light they could at least turn an additional light, I had to use my phone flash light on a number of accasions - a nice hotel that could be so much better with some little tweeks
It’s rare when everything about a hotel is excellent. Our four night stay here was one of those rare experiences.
From: arrival, valet parking, doormen and check-in through to the room, facilities, breakfast and bar - everything was really great.
We left feeling like we were valued guests who the staff really cared about. A heartfelt thank-you to everyone at the hotel. A really special experience and a wonderful stay :)
My wife booked a weekend away in London for my birthday. We had a Chambers Suite overlooking the Eurostar terminal or so we thought.
We arrived at the hotel at 1030 to drop bags and were informed we were upgraded and that they would phone when room was ready.
Whilst at London Zoo with a 3 year old at 1300 we were phoned to be informed that our upgrade and room would not be available until 1700 or we could have another room with inferior view at regular check in - first disappointing, poor service experience.
Before leaving for the Zoo, I informed concierge that a cake would be arriving and could they put it in our room. On arrival back at the hotel, I noticed the cake on the floor at the front desk - because the hotel could not connect the simple dots that by moving us to an inferior room, the cake they attempted to deliver to original room was for a different guest! Second awful service, a nice surprise ruined.
We departed with breakfast after taking breakfast in the room only to find at checkout that breakfast taken in the room is not included in the rate so £60 added to the bill.
If you want a great room in a great location this hotel is fantastic. If you want the same great service to go with it, look elsewhere as the service is some of the worst I have experienced.
