Extremely convenient for Kings X/St Pancras, small room but clean and a recently remodelled shower/toilet. Comfortable bed and good breakfast. The Central Hotel was everything I needed for a quick visit and I will certainly use it again next time I am in London. John W

Friendly and helpful staff. Generous breakfast. Cosy comfort in central location, handy for Kings Cross. Steep stairs with stained carpet let down the otherwise clean facilities. Travelling alone I felt very safe and comfortable here.
