The Pullman London St Pancras, London, England

By:
Callum Rogan
 

With a central location close to major train stations, and enjoying a trendy decor, the Pullman St Pancras is ideal for a stopover in London, however brief.

  • Location: On Euston Road, close to King’s Cross Station and Euston Station.
  • Accommodations: The hotel’s 312 guest rooms and suites are modern and minimalist, with those on the upper levels offering views across London. There are three grades of room, which vary in size, and two types of suite including a Junior and Deluxe. All share a bright and breezy decor with a masculine feel, and features including luxurious faux leather padded headboards, striped carpeting, blackout curtains, and a place to work if you’re on business.  
  • Dining options: The Golden Arrow Restaurant & Bar, named after the all-first-class Pullman train service between Paris and Calais, has won the AA Rosette Award, and the bar especially was busy both nights we stayed. It had a lively atmosphere enhanced by live music, serves contemporary food. There is also room service.
  • What else is there: The hotel has a Fit Lounge, which is open 24/7 with complimentary access for hotel guests, featuring the latest cardio and weight equipment,  along with a sauna. We didn’t get time to use it, but we stopped by one morning for a peek as someone at breakfast told us it had a nice view - which it did.
  • What’s nearby: Located between Kings Cross Station and Euston Stations is a bonus if you want to get around London, and to and from Heathrow Airport. If you’re sightseeing the British Library is literally on the doorstep of the hotel, with The British Museum less than a 15 minute walk. Also within striking distance are Granary Square, the canal side heart of King’s Cross, Camden Market, London Zoo and Regent’s Park. 
  • Why go: The hotel has a great location and it’s super trendy with everything you need for a cozy couple’s stay. 

The Space

Minutes after we arrived at the Pullman London St Pancras for a two-night stay, we discovered the 16-floor building has quite a fascinating if unglamorous history. A frequent visitor, who was chatting to me on check-in, told me it started out life in the early 1970s as a council building, before being converted the Shaw Park Plaza Hotel, and later becoming a Novotel as part of the AccorHotels group. Then in 2012, after a major renovation, it was rebranded and reopened as a Pullman, the first UK Pullman hotel for the hotel group. First reviews hinted that it was somewhat “swish”, boasting a trendy decor and offering Pullman’s signature services from the Pullman bed to docking stations and free WiFi. For us there was certainly a warm welcome on a cold night, and we felt instantly at home.

Where We Stayed

Our room for a brief stay in London was meant to be a Deluxe Room, but no sooner were we settling in than someone called up from reception to offer us an upgrade to a Junior Suite. We happily accepted. The suite was set on a high floor, above our original one, and was super spacious with commanding views of the British Library and St Pancras Station as promised. It had a nice, open plan sitting area with an armchair, a sofa and a work desk, with a range of attractive amenities including an Nespresso machine, a Bose wireless music station, and on-demand movies. Also included in the room rate, which surprised us, were local phone calls and daily still and sparkling mineral water. The LED TV had Chromecast built in, which his handy for casting from your own phone apps, and there were other nice touches including plush bathrobes, a selection of pillows, and luxury C.O. Bigelow toiletries and rainfall shower head in the bathroom. The decor was simple; plenty of light grey, dark grey and off white, with touches of sky blue, and fabrics including faux leather and velvet.

    Overrated 3 Star Review

    I stayed here for one night as a stopover and wasn't super impressed to be honest. I loved the lobby and the trendiness of the design but the room was pretty basic for a Pullman. Mind you I had the lowest grade room they offer only because I was staying one night and literally needed it for sleeping and showering
