If like me, you don’t live in the south east of England and either have a morning Eurostar departure from London St Pancras or a late arrival into St Pancras on your return, you’ll probably need to find a hotel near St Pancras for the night.Â I did some research on St Pancras hotels based on a one night stay for 2 guests on Tuesday 5 October 2010 (prices correct on 24 August 2010).Â I stuck to hotels within 0.2 miles of St Pancras station. I reckoned that the 0.2 mile radius means that it’d be a quick walk to the station, thereby avoiding the need a for a taxi or use of public transport.
St Pancras Station London
While plenty of hotels near St Pancras appeared in my search results, many had pretty low ratings from guests. Â Therefore I decided to only include hotels that received at least a score of 70% in feedback from guests.Â I’ve listed the St Pancras hotels by guest rating (the average from a minimum of 2 different accommodation sites), from highest to lowest.Â As you can see, it’s hard to find a cheap St Pancras hotel with good guest ratings.

Wim ofÂ Europe Travel Pass says “Every November we attend the WTM and stay at the Ibis Euston Hotel Just across from Euston Station and very close to St. Pancras. It’s officially a 2-star hotel with smaller rooms but it has all we need including good restaurants nearby (Italian, Indian and in the hotel) and a M&S Food Shop in the station”.Â My response – I didn’t include this hotel as it’s 0.6 mile from St Pancras but it does receive 72% in guest ratings, when I checked on 30 August the price for period 5 – 7 October was Â£134 a night room only, which I thought was pretty expensive.
