Lonely Planet review
Rising like a phoenix from the ashes of the 'old' King's Cross – once the city's red light district – the Great Northern Hotel, with its curving brick facade, would make its 1854 incarnation proud. The world's first railway hotel is back in business with a boutique, classic style reminiscent of luxury sleeper trains.
Exquisite craftsmanship is in evidence everywhere – with noble materials and custom designs – without losing sight of practical details: there are European as well as English sockets; there's a ‘pantry’ on every floor from which you can help yourself to hot or cold drinks, cakes, books and newspapers; and there's great in-room entertainment with films, music playlists and audio books. There is also a lively bar and an excellent restaurant.
Our independent authors have visited Great Northern Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Hampstead & North London.
