King’s Cross is more than just a transport hub (and a site of pilgrimage for fans of Harry Potter); it is a newly regenerated meeting place, with old warehouses and industrial plants stocked with designer shops and high-end restaurants. These five budget hotels will situate you slap-bang in the middle of the action, without knocking a lump out of your travel budget.

Located just across the road from King’s Cross St Pancras station, Point A provides everything you need for an easy stay in London: the rooms are modern, if slightly on the small side, and the beds are extremely comfortable. Breakfast is also a highlight, with pastries aplenty.

A little gem just a stone’s throw from the train station, The California could compete with East London’s hipster hotels. Rooms are tastefully decorated and the bar is a cosy little space away from the bustle outside. Be warned, though: you probably won’t be able to get The Eagles’s song out of your head for the duration of your stay.

Four-star luxury in a prime location at a reasonable price – what’s not to love? The Megaro is a quirky little find that couldn’t be more central. You can’t miss the multi-coloured facade, and the decor inside is even more eye-catching; think science lab-themed bar and giant dog statues that blast music. The hotel’s restaurant is a great pit stop if you’re in a rush between neighbourhood explorations.

The Tavistock is just outside King’s Cross in neighbouring Bloomsbury. The decor is somewhat dated, but the rooms are spacious and comfortable and the staff are helpful and pleasant. Located within walking distance of the station, the British Museum, Madame Tussauds and Oxford Street, it’s a good option if you want to be able to explore London on foot without spending a fortune on a plush hotel.

Book with our partner Hotels.com
More like a countryside retreat, The Goodenough is central, affordable and oozing with British charm. The interiors have been given a makeover, but traditional features – such as the Great Hall – remain. There’s a real old-world charm about this place, which is perhaps especially enticing to visitors from outside the UK; everyone will appreciate the central location.
