Highs & Lows

  • Great location if you’re getting off the Eurostar or need to be at Kings Cross. Also, the area has some great new shops, bars and restaurants within walking distance.

  • Affordable and fun. The rooms aren’t huge, but the price is right, the restaurant’s fantastic and you feel like you’re part of something about to take off…

  • Love the branding, all the railwayish stuff really works.

  • I don’t think I ever eat breakfast in a hotel restaurant and I don’t always want to wait for room service, so the pantry in the morning is genius!

  • Although the rooms are silent, GNH is on a very busy street and I could really sense the hustle outside.
