Situated in a smart, old-fashioned townhouse, the family-run Hotel Meridiana has the charm of a traditional English B&B. The cheerful two-star property is located on Argyle Square, a quiet street near King’s Cross Station and the British Library.
Pros: Homey and charming. Quiet, convenient location. Friendly service.
Cons: No elevator. Credit card surcharge. Small rooms. A little outdated.
The Meridiana’s 25 guest rooms are on the small side and simply furnished with wooden headboards and small night tables. Large armoires in many rooms provide plenty of space to stash your stuff, and blue print bedspreads liven things up.
Each room is equipped with coffee and tea facilities, a fan and television.
Some rooms have private bathrooms, and the cheapest rooms share facilities. Either way, bathrooms are small and basic but also clean and functional. A hair dryer is available upon request, but be sure to bring along your other bathing necessities.
The Hotel Meridiana is situated in a pretty townhouse facing a picturesque park. Its cozy basement dining room—complete with hardwood floors, patterned wallpaper, wood-paneled walls and a grand fireplace (with artificial fire)—perfectly recreates the spirit of a traditional Victorian living room. A full English breakfast, included in the room rate, is served here each morning.
Free Wi-Fi is available in the reception area, which is open from 7 a.m. until midnight. Note that the hotel has steep stairs (no elevator) and that there is a surcharge for paying with a credit card.

About the Hotel Meridiana neighborhood
While many Londoners will warn you to stay away from the streets around King’s Cross and St. Pancras stations, the area is in fact only seedy here and there. There are oodles of small (and affordable) B&Bs in the area, as well as upscale restaurants, and a real range of shops.
