Family run budget hotel across the road from Kings Cross station
Located on Argyle Square, which can be found opposite Kings Cross railway and underground stations, the European Hotel London is a budget hotel aimed at offering a central base of operations for business and pleasure visitors alike.
With more than 20 years of hotel service experience, this family run establishment includes basic amenities at a reasonable price. Each of the 81 guestrooms is serviced on a daily basis ensuring that guests have a clean and comfortable stay throughout their time here.
Each room includes a television as well as access to hairdryer, iron and ironing board, wake up calls, and plug adaptors on request. Guests should note that most of the room feature en-suite bathroom facilities (shower, WC, wash basin) although some of the cheaper rooms use a shared bathroom.
As well as a 24 hour reception, the hotel provides fax facilities for those that require it, as well as wireless internet access in the public areas. A buffet breakfast is served in the restaurant each morning and is included in the cost of a room.
Whilst it may not be filled to the brim with luxury facilities and amenities, the European Hotel London can rely on its location to pull in guests. Itd be hard to argue against its Argyle Square address being one of the better hotel spots in the city.
With Kings Cross railway station and its neighbour St. Pancras International, so close by, the hotel is ideally located for those arriving into the city via national and international rail. Similarly, Kings Cross underground station serves Victoria, Liverpool Street, and Paddington stations, which in turn connect with Gatwick, Stansted, and Heathrow airports. The mainline out of Kings Cross also goes direct to Luton and Gatwick airports.
For those looking to get around the city, either for business of pleasure, London buses and the underground railway can connect them to just about anywhere within the Greater London area, including the business district around Canary Wharf and the financial district in the East End.
Pleasure tourists can enjoy a number of sites by foot, including the British Library and British Museum, as well as the Camden and Islington districts. St. Pancras International itself is a stunning building which has recently been renovated. Inside visitors will find a parade of shops, restaurants, cafs, and even a champagne bar.
Londons famous landmarks can all be reached via short journeys. The likes of the Tower of London, London Bridge, the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, and St. Pauls Cathedral are all wildly popular with international tourists and offer the perfect opportunity for that perfect holiday snap.
Other places of interest include Hyde Park, Harrods, the Victoria and Albert Museum, Natural History Museum, and the Royal Albert Hall. All of these are conveniently located close to each other and would make a wonderful itinerary for a day out in London.
Those looking for the bright lights of the West End and the shopping district of Oxford Street neednt fear either; the European Hotel London offers easy access to all of these and plenty more.
