The sun terrace and coffee bar at the popular bed and breakfast, California Hotel London, provide comfortable areas for relaxation during your educational visit to the UK.
California Hotel London is a popular bed and breakfast, conveniently located just minutes from St Pancras and Kings Cross stations. There is a sun terrace for warm summer days, as well as a coffee bar to warm you up on cold winter nights (complete with internet access, to help you stay in touch with family and friends without having to set foot outside your hotel). The 60 guestrooms at California Hotel London all have a private bath or shower, colour television, clock radio and safe.
London California Hotel is situated in a side street opposite St Pancras Station. This station has appeared in many movies, due to its beautiful faade (originally it was the Midland Grand Hotel). The now disused interior of St Pancras Chambers appeared in the 1976 WWII melodrama Voyage of the Damned and 1997s Keep the Aspidistra Flying, starring Richard E. Grant. You can even have a free guided tour of the ground floor, where you will see the elaborate staircase used in the Spice Girls Wannabe video.
Head southwest and you will find many language schools within easy reach of California Hotel London, including Central School of English, Language Studies International London and St Giles College Central. There are also several universities in this area, such as University College London, the School of Oriental and African Studies and the student union buildings of the University of London.
Centrally located in Zone 1, St Pancras is the nearest mainline station to California Hotel London, with Kings Cross Station also within easy reach. You will find direct links to three airports from Kings Cross: Heathrow Airport (via the Piccadilly Line), Gatwick Airport and Luton Airport (both via the Thameslink).
You are well placed for access to the British Library at London California Hotel, as well as the British Museum. The big student population of this area (due to the large number of universities and language schools) means that you will find many restaurants and bars that cater for the typically reduced budget of students.
