St. Pancras Renaissance London Hotel
Hotel, Boutique Hotel, Suite Hotel, Business Hotel
Design aficionados will love the grand staircases, vaulted ceilings and tall windows here, which blend together both old and new in what is surely one of London’s most stunning buildings. This five-star luxury hotel has four restaurants including The Booking Office, converted from a Victorian ticket hall, and The Gilbert Scott (named after the building’s original architect) overseen by celebrated British chef Marcus Wareing. The hamman-style spa is perfect for escaping the crowds on Euston Road or getting pampered before a night on the tiles.
Those with a flair for the dramatic will love this colourful and eclectic boutique hotel. The Megaro has teamed up with fashion labels Diesel and Doc Marten on a collection of design-led corner suites and there’s a self-serve steampunk ‘minibar’ in the lobby. The Megaro Eatery serves classic British cuisine and there are cocktails and live music at the hotel’s underground piano bar. The rooms are bright, spacious and quiet – that is, until you turn the Aerobull speakers (life-size replicas of French bulldogs) up to maximum volume.
The comfortable, luxurious rooms, inspired by railway sleeper carriages, feature the latest in soundproofing technology keeping the noise from King’s Cross Station at bay. There’s modern British dining from Mark Sargeant at Plum + Spilt Milk, and not one but two cocktail bars including GNH Bar, with show-stopping chandeliers and floor-to-ceiling shelves stocked with the finest spirits. Grab a coffee from Kiosk café to keep you going through one of London’s busiest neighbourhoods.
The Megaro’s smaller sibling has a much more casual vibe. The minimalist rooms boast some of the comfiest beds in London; a welcome respite for those looking to spend their time exploring the Big Smoke. The California is perfect for couples looking for an affordable weekend city break close to the action.
Point A punches well above its weight thanks to good design, mood lighting, power showers and some seriously comfy mattresses. This hotel is great for couples who want somewhere comfortable and well connected without luxury. A dazzling breakfast array of croissants, cinnamon swirls, cheese and bacon twists, yoghurts and more will keep you fuelled for a busy day exploring Granary Square, Upper Street and beyond.
