OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

It's opposite King's Cross St Pancras on the busy Euston Road, making it particularly convenient if you're travelling by train. The area has seen huge redevelopment and there are buckets of hip restaurants, shops and bars in Coals Drop Yard. For excellent westernised Indian dishes try Dishoom, or opt for Lina Stores for Italian cuisine in retro surroundings.

By car: around 4 hours from Manchester and less than 3 hours from Bristol. Parking costs £20 per day.

By train: King's Cross St Pancras station is 2 minutes' walk away; Euston is a 7-minute walk. Book trains to London.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

Housed in a Brutalist building overlooking St Pancras station, interiors are fun and playful, 1970s-style, featuring retro furnishings, bright pops of colour and splashes of greenery. In the lounge and co-working space, mushroom lights create a soft and warm feel, with soft leather sofas to sink into with a book in hand (there are about 3000 lining the walls). The vibe is cool, unpretentious and inviting.

THE FACILITIES

Service is exceptionally friendly and laidback, with a delightful team of staff exuding warmth and making you feel at home the moment you arrive. There's a compact gym with Technogym equipment and three Peloton bikes (you can ask for the bikes to be taken up to your room). When it comes to facilities the real draw is the outdoor space, with a delightful ground-floor terrace for relaxing on warmer days, and a fantastic 11th-floor rooftop terrace with gorgeous views.

The cherry on the cake is Decimo, the tenth-floor restaurant showcasing Spanish and Mexican-inspired flavours in a hip setting with huge floor-to-ceiling windows. For a pre- or post-prandial drink, head across to Sweeties cocktail bar, where mixologists shake up potent cocktails to the sounds of DJs spinning the latest tracks.
