Classic Beauty best describes London's exquisitely refurbished Great Northern Hotel. Opening directly onto the Western Concourse of London’s King’s Cross Station. There’s so much to say about this wonderful place, i sum it up in key-words: sophisticated yet relaxed, classic, historic yet contemporary, sublime handmade furniture, stunning Lefroy-Brooks bathrooms and much more! That history! That shape! Love it all!!!
