About the hotel
The California is a charming, modern bed and breakfast, less than a minute’s walk away from King’s Cross and St. Pancras stations. Our 60 stylishly refurbished rooms, each one cosy and comfortable, are spread over four Georgian townhouses, and we’ve retained as much of the original architecture as possible; our windows, corridors and staircases are all original.
This means that we don’t have a lift, but we do keep our reception open 24 hours a day, include breakfast and high speed WiFi in all our rates and have just opened our new bar, lounge and private terrace for our guests to enjoy. Welcome to The California London. Visit any time, explore every time.

California dreaming on any away days
The staff were so pleasant, simply welcoming, making everyone matter and feel safe and welcome.
Nothing was too much trouble and they achieved a good balance of allowing their guest to be independent whilst on hand to attend to any particular request - even to carrying a heavy case up to the top floor with a gracious smile, despite nearly buckling under the effort. The food at breakfast was tasty, easy, and generous with plenty of fruit and easy expectation that everyone likes to take something for later.
Handy for Kings Cross and St Pancris rail
Paid £198 for a upgraded room and was given a standard room at £172 on the ground floor.
Complained at reception and was given a room on the top floor!
