About this area

London

In the city centre, The California is in London's London City Centre neighbourhood, a walkable area with good airport proximity and shopping. Oxford Street and Covent Garden Market are worth checking out if shopping is on the agenda, while those wishing to experience the area's popular attractions can visit BT Tower and ZSL London Zoo. Check out an event or a game at Emirates Stadium, and consider making time for Coca-Cola London Eye, a top attraction not to be missed. Our guests appreciate the hotel's central location for the sightseeing. It's also convenient for public transport: King's Cross St. Pancras Underground Station is just steps away and Russell Square Underground Station is 12 minutes by foot.

Conveniently located next to the st Pancras station. Nice staff and breakfast. But there is no lift in the hotel. Would be kind of difficult for people carrying large luggage.
