Located on 100-110 Euston Road, one of the Pullman London St Pancras‘ most strategic assets is its location: it’s a mere 10-minute walk to both the Euston and the King’s Cross/St Pancras stations (where travelers can hop on the Eurostar to Europe).

Formerly known as the Novotel London St Pancras, the property was rebadged as a Pullman after a major refurbishment into a four-star all non-smoking hotel.  True to the Pullman branding, the property exudes modernity with plenty of mod furniture and decorative piece, and ambient lighting.

The deluxe room we were assigned was spacious, especially for a central London location, and had large windows which let in plenty of natural light, further enlarging the confines of the room.  The decor is clean and contemporary, with a the clever use of light yellow mustard to throw up a bright contrast to the predominant use of grays and whites.  The room amenities are all once can expect of a four-star hotel, with a Krups coffee-brewer and Jing tea (Jade Sword Green, Earl Grey, and English breakfast) for in-room refreshments.  Toiletries are from Roger & Gallet of Paris (Pullman, after all, is part of France’s Accor Group).

While the Pullman London St Pancras is young and modern in almost every respect–including its international staff–one area the refurbishment seems to have missed is the gym.  It looks like a school gym from the nineties with equipment that while functional, are austere and dated.  It also has a coed sauna and steam room, which as one can expect due to its mix-gender nature and within the context of a hotel, see little utilization.
