Overview

About the property

A 3 bedroom Gothic fantasy of bricks and spires

Big Ben, Tower Bridge, the Natural History Museum – all are visual icons of London, built by Victorians whose aspirations knew no boundaries - but those are not for rent. With them sits St Pancras Chambers, a gothic fantasy of bricks and spires.

The building, designated as a national historic landmark (Grade 1 listed) incorporates the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel (5 star Marriott), St Pancras Chambers (private apartments such as this) and Kings Cross St Pancras underground and train station below - the most interconnected train hub in London (6 tube lines inc direct access to Heathrow, Gatwick and Luton airports plus direct trains to Edinburgh, Paris and Brussels!)

LOCATION:

On the edge of fashionable Bloomsbury and well connected by underground, it is the perfect hub from which to explore London's sights. Restaurants, pubs and shops can be found in abundance both in the building and adjacent hotel as well as the general vicinity.

The perfect base to explore all that London has to offer.

THE APARTMENT:

This apartment is on the top two floors of St Pancras Chambers. Residents also have access to hotel facilities at additional cost (inc Spa, Pool and Gym)

The apartment is over the 4th and 5th floors of the building. There are two guest double bedrooms on the 4th floor (one ensuite) and third mezzanine room above the living room which is typically used as a third bedroom (it has 2 foldout single sofa beds which can be put side by side for a double). If not needed as a third bedroom, the mezzanine has also in the past been used as a reading room or as a kids play area (we have plenty of board games and puzzles).

We have 2 further foldout mattresses and one travel cot available on request. These can be placed in either bedroom.

The 5th floor area is an open plan Kitchen/Living Room.

CHECK-IN/CHECK-OUT TIMES

Check-in is typically any time after 4pm and Check-out strictly by 10am. I will certainly try to be flexible and it depends very much on how tight the turnaround is between your booking and the ones before and after. If your needs require an early check-in for example, I have often accommodated the needs of the tenants where possible but this must be by prior arrangement so please email me about your needs and I will try my best to accommodate.

BEFORE REQUESTING A BOOKING, PLEASE READ THIS:

Please remember, this is not a business. We are welcoming you into our own home. While we use it ourselves when we are in London, we have started to make it available when we are not! Please treat it as you would your own.

We have had some wonderful people stay here since we started making our apartment available and we would like to keep up that record. When you contact us, please tell us something about yourself, and your plans in London. Empty booking requests will be ignored.

MINIMUM BOOKING REQUIREMENTS:

Please note that our standard booking period is a minimum of three days. However, in shoulder season periods, we do accept 2 night bookings but with a 20% surcharge. Thanks for your understanding.

Guestbook comments from the manager

It is a great location from which to see the city, and the building itself is stunning. It is a very safe building, too. We loved the 24/7 coverage at the front desk. The apartment is really comfortable, with a lot more space than I expected. Two large bathrooms and two large bedrooms were a happy surprise! The loft area was nice for sleeping too. The kitchen had everything we needed for the bit of cooking we did, and best of all, it has a FANTASTIC supply of coffee and tea! The family games were fun to play when we were in for the night. Thanks so much for your thoughtful attention to detail, Yaz! We definitely highly recommend this apartment!

Excellent all the way around

  • 5 of 5

This was such a great spot from which my family of 5 could explore the fabulous city of London! My kids (15, 13, 9) loved the Harry Potter connection too. It was so comfortable and so convenient.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this great apartment. 4 adults, 3 children on a visit to London to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Apartment in a great location for tube and main line stations, well equipped and very comfortable. Appreciated welcome pack on arrival. Would not hesitate to stay again - highly recommended

Fabulous location - felt right at home.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location of this apartment. Great to be able to take advantage of the hotel amenities and its location while still having a home base with it's own kitchen and living room. Great place to relax and play board games with your family. Great jumping off place for your London adventures.

We stayed in this beautiful unit in August 2016 for a small international family gathering. Its location is unbeatable, providing very easy access to all of London and some out of town day trips. The building is a work of art. The front desk staff is very helpful. The owner Yaz and his partner are very quick to return messages. The King's Cross area is very lively during the summer. We enjoyed early morning runs/walks by the Regent's Canal. All in all, an excellent choice and we hope to return for future London trips. Thank you!

Excellent host and a stress-free stay

  • 5 of 5

We rented this apartment for two nights over a Bank Holiday weekend and the owners could not have been more helpful.

Upon arrival the gentlemen on reception were very helpful and over the weekend became familiar, friendly faces. The location could not have been better, with great transport links and a number of grocery shops nearby. As we were a large group, Yaz had arranged for the spare beds to be made up for our arrival, which allowed us to start enjoying the property straight away. He also gave us some useful information about the spa in the hotel - this along with the detailed information folder helped us greatly. The apartment was really clean and comfortable and I would certainly visit again.
