Where to stay in London: Tune Hotels King’s Cross

Posted on 07. Feb, 2013 by in Destinations, Europe Travel, Reviews, United Kingdom

Accommodation in London can be both delightful and extremely tricky - with such a large amount of properties to choose from, how can you pick the bad apples from the basket?

But if you’re looking for affordable, quality, no-frills accommodation, remember this name: Tune Hotels. You can thank me later.

Tune Hotels Kings Cross: The Location

View Larger Map

As you can see from the map, the hotel is handily located at a stone throw’s away from King’s Cross, where you can choose between no less than 6 tube lines, a handful of bus routes and trains to just about everywhere in the country. Not bad, eh? And in terms of amenities, being in such a vibrant and busy part of town, it doesn’t come as a surprise that you can get pretty much anything you want at anytime of the day (grocery, pharmacy, restaurants, bars, etc).

Really, as far as locations go, it just doesn’t get better than this.

Tune Hotels Kings Cross: The Hotel

One of the things I like about this hotel is the fact that it’s just a hair under a year old - meaning that everything is brand new and works perfectly well.  No need to worry about leaking showers or oddly shaped beds!

Additionally, the hotel features a 24-hour reception, WiFi throughout, as well as a small selection of tea/coffee/snacks at reception. They don’t offer breakfast, but on the other hand, who wants to have breakfast at the hotel when there are SO many delicious brunch options in the city?

And last but not least, the no-frills prices. If you don’t want WiFi, don’t pay for it. If you don’t want cable TV, don’t pay for it. You brought your own towel? Don’t pay for one. You get the gist. Only pay for what you want and need, not a penny more. And if you want everything, that’s not a problem either - all those fun extras come in a bundle priced at just £8 per day.

Also, kudos to the amazing customer service. The staff let me use their computer to print something I couldn’t open on my laptop, free of charge!

Tune Hotels Kings Cross: The Rooms

I couldn’t believe my luck when I opened my opened the door. This was my view for the following three days. Somebody pinch me.

As if this wasn’t enough (I would have gladly swapped a comfortable bed for this amazing view), the room was, as expected, impeccable. Spotless bathroom, good power shower, great size by London standards and a comfy bed. Really, I didn’t want to leave this place!

As you can probably tell, I had a lovely time at the Tune. I stayed at another one of their hotel last year so I had an idea of what to expect, and yet again, Tune delivered. Can’t wait to try out their new hotels!

Double bedrooms at Tune Hotel Kings Cross start from £45 a night. For more information or to book visit www.tunehotels.com.

    Wow! This looks amazing. Even if it wasn’t quite as good as you describe it would STILL be amazing for London! I will definitely try it next time I’m there!

        I believe they also have hotels in Malaysia and other parts of Europe — best to check out their website to confirm!
