Jemal Airey, Australian

Wow, what a gorgeous hotel in London. The staff were fantastic; so helpful, so intelligent and so friendly. The foyer and bar were quirky and delightful. The rooms had everything you needed; beds comfortable, showers affective etc. The location was sensational, a minute's walk from King's Cross St Pancras. We loved our stay and would gladly book California Hotel London again

Lovely room, but did have to clean toilet seat on arrival, but everyone polite bit of a language barrier in morning when trying to explain why daughters gluten free bread couldn't be put in normal toaster with other bread a bit put out when asked if I could speak another language to explain! But we got there in the end. I would stay at California Hotel again though

We enjoyed our stay at California Hotel London. Everyone on the staff were so helpful and went out of their way to make our stay so very enjoyable. The location is perfect for the underground and the key railway stations

Carley Demmon, British

Myself and 4 friends stayed here at the weekend in the basement 6 sleeper room. I have to say we was very surprised! What a hidden little gem California hotel is! Great find on TravelStay. We were very happy with the room, lovely and clean and spacious and decorated to a very high standard (if We wanted to be picky, the only thing we would fault would be the shower screen type door on the bathroom!) but that's about it. Staff were friendly, breakfast was gorgeous! Would definitely book California hotel again.
