The rejuvenation undergone in and around London’s Kings Cross has seen an end put to the area’s seedy undercarriage. Now it is an energetic transport and business hub, seeing more than 1 million commuters pass through every day. Add to that the British Museum, King’s College University and the Wellcome Collection nearby and it’s easy to understand the area’s growing popularity as a place to stay.

Kings Cross St. Pancras station hosts the Eurostar too, meaning the area is a popular place to find a hotel in London before catching a train to Paris or Brussels. Many of the city’s underground lines connect at Kings Cross Underground station, making it an ideal place from which to explore all of London. Hotels in Kings Cross are a mixed bag. The choice ranges from smaller B&Bs to major hotel chains, and the quality is just as varied. Here at TravelMag we’ve filtered out the duds to bring you the top five.
