St. Pancras Renaissance London Hotel Reviews
Beautiful hotel and a convenient location” Apr 11, 2014
My fiancé and I stayed at this hotel mainly for convenience as we had a few things to attend in London over the weekend. Firstly,the location (St Pancras station) is ideal for getting around London and also a great base as you have all of your shops, eateries, coffee shops etc. on your doorstep.
The bar area (befittingly named the booking office) was great and with the colossal windows it looks like a set from the Harry Potter movies. We enjoyed a cocktail platter as we wanted to try a little bit of each of them. They were fantastic and presented well - I think my favourite as The Old Midlands Punch.
We also ate at the Gilbert Scott restaurant - the food here was exquisite and we enjoyed our meal and the atmosphere at this restaurant. The staff here were brilliant.
The fitness centre is well equipped and the spa area was extremely relaxing although I did have some trouble actually finding the spa area (maybe a few more signs would be helpful) but once there I had a lovely morning.
Our room was also fantastic, I can't remember now which one we stayed in but we had access to the chambers club (where we ate breakfast). The bed was enormous and one of the most comfortable. The décor was fabulous and the room was just charming and sparkling clean. We also had a view of the platforms in the train station which was quite nice and a different experience.
The only minor criticism - some of the girls working in the bar did not seem very professional or helpful. All other staff that we came across throughout the hotel were brilliant and efficient - the front desk staff were especially helpful, professional and polite.

This is my first experience in a dorm...I don't love it, but it's okay for people who will be out of the room all day.
Excellent loctation, central and 2 min from major tube stop
Really friendly and helpful staff.
Wifi in the actual room has not worked for me.
Shower was hot and clean, but don't forget your slippers
St. Pancras Renaissance London Hotel Overview
The St Pancras Renaissance Hotel London provides direct access from to the concourse of the newly restored St Pancras International Eurostar Terminal, Europe's gateway to London and the UK. With trains to all points north and south (to Gatwick and Luton Airports), six Underground lines and London's ring road on its doorstep, nowhere has the local, national and international transport connections of St Pancras.
St Pancras, the so-called White Cliffs of London, welcomes visitors from the European mainland, and there is nowhere better for their journeys into the UK to begin. From neighbouring King's Cross, high-speed trains serve the north and east of England, and Scotland. There are rapid rail links through London and to southern England. Six Undergound Lines, offer links to every part of the capital, and direct connections to Covent Garden, Knightsbridge, Oxford Circus, the City, the West End, Waterloo, Paddington Station with the direct trains to Heathrow Airport, Liverpool Street Station with the direct trains to Stansted Airport. And for those travelling by car or taxi, Euston Road is a great place to start getting around London. Regent's Park and Madame Tussauds are both a short bus or underground journey away.
High Victorian Gothic architecture in its most dramatic sense, the stunning redbrick building having been saved from demolition in the sixties by a protest led by former Poet Laureate Sir John Betjeman. Preserving the glamour of the old station and the romance of rail travel during the 1800s, the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London will maintain its elegance and charm by offering global travellers a gateway to London in the form of one of the city's greatest landmarks.
The infamous sweeping forecourt, unique to a London hotel in its size and presence, provides a fitting entrance for the new hotel that will also showcase restored gold-leaf ceilings, ornate wall murals and the spectacular grand staircase.

After years of devoted restoration, the St Pancras Renaissance London Hotel is being hailed as London's most romantic building. Its glorious Gothic Revival metalwork, gold leaf ceilings, hand-stencilled wall designs and the grand staircase are as dazzling as the day Queen Victoria opened the hotel in 1873.Designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott to receive travellers through St Pancras Station, the former Midland Grand Hotel offered its guests a world of grandeur, luxury and fantasy behind its fairytale red facade. Innovations such as ascending rooms (elevators) and revolving doors heightened the sense of awe. Those doors will be spinning again, sweeping guests into a world where modern luxuries mingle with the extravagance of rail's golden age. The hotel will also house a 350 capacity ballroom, a private club, a barber's shop and luxury spa, to include a swimming pool and 7 treatment rooms.
