The Standard Hotel, London
“A monumental renovation, right across Euston Road, is now home to Europe’s first Standard Hotel. It took years and many millions to turn this Brutalist former municipal structure into the luxury hotel that opened last summer.”
Featured in New York Times’ 36 Hours in King’s Cross, London.
“Standards are renowned for their always-on-the-verge-of-a-party vibe, and by locating the London outpost in a unique building in a rapidly regenerating part of the city, they’ve established, yet again, their signature edgy tone. The building was once part of Camden Town Hall—so both the interiors and the conversations used to be much more subdued.”

The Standard Hotel is located in the middle of King Cross, above Euston Road and on the same street as the famous St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel. Nearby there is the famous British Library, Welcome Collection museum, few bars, and a 10-minute walk to Central Saint Martin. The neighborhood is fairly crowded and brimming with traffic generally.
The hotel has a distinctive exterior with the glass extension and it is easily recognizable from afar. The entire style is based on the 70s with radiant tiles, plants, and eccentric lighting. There are facilities like lifts and adapted rooms for the disabled.
The Standard Hotel has about 266 rooms, all these rooms are very aesthetic and Instagram worthy. The entire set up reflects the 70s vibe in away. These rooms have natural light, comfy seating, air-conditioning, free WiFi, fully-stocked mini-fridge, and also a minibar. The bathroom style ranges just like the rooms, a few have tubs however every one of them has showers.
The hotel offers no spa since it claims to be more party than pamper. But you are facilitated with 24hours security, gym, laundry service, and 24hrs room service. It is an ideal venue to host gigs and throw some extraordinary parties.
The staff is friendly and cooperative but the hotel is not merely for children friendly, because of its atmosphere and care-free environment.
