    First to Review

    The Central Hotel was the best gamble I took on a B+B.  Even though we were put in the smallest room (and we're a tall couple), we had a comfy room with a private WC, enough room to sleep after tiring ourselves out after full days of activities.

    It's located steps away from St. Pancras station and walking distance to the double decker tour bus and other parks and historic sights.  This super cute and way friendly hotel provided helpful info and an English breakfast every day.  

    Nice and clean, very friendly service, good and free breakfast, plus free wi-fi, and very reasonable prices...highly recommended.

    I don't agree with the other review.  The hotel central put us across the street at the fairmont.  It's a very small room.  No curtain to cover the window, plastic toilet that only flushes 20% of the time.  Smallest little cruddy shower that we were too scared to use. No air conditioning or airflow.  (there is a heater, but no cool air)  Also we are only getting wifi in certain areas of the room.  The walls are SO thin it sounds like other people are in our room.  Also the room seems like a serious fire hazard, no conceivable fire escape, tiny spiral staircase, guess you have to jump out the window. Still everything else in this town is ungodly expensive, so now we feel like fleeing London in search of a much better room at a lower price.  Oh FYI this room is running us about 90 Pounds a night.

    The long and the short of it: this is a well-run, budget bed-and-breakfast, no more, no less.  The rooms are tiny and the breakfast isn't that good, but you can't beat the location.  The people that work the desk are competent and helpful (if suffering from the ubiquitous London passive-aggressiveness).
