Novotel London St Pancras

London is a thriving city with business concerns, sporting excellence, cultural interests and hundreds of years of history all mixed together to make a city that offers something for everyone. The first-time visitor to Lodnon could very well be forgiven for being somewhat overwhelmed by what greets them when they first arrive, for London has grown with the times and is the kind of place where one cannot stand still for long.

Even as the world – London itself included – rallies amid the financial realities of a very pressurised time, London remains a dynamic city with a defiant spirit which is defined as well as anything by its reaction to the bombings of July the 7th, 2005. The next day, people were going back out to work in a gesture of open defiance to anyone who would wish to damage the close knit, multicultural community of London. And if those bombings could not stop the city from running, then a recession will not do so either.

Novotel St Pancras LondonLondon remains also as a centre for tourism. Whatever one’s interests, the city itself has something for everyone, with a huge population not only of individuals but of retail outlets, areas of historical significance, sports stadia and venues for music, theatre, cinema and any other art form you could ever care to mention. London will continue to attract people from all over the world to sample what it has to offer, and it has a lot. For a city this large to continue to function, it is necessary for it to be well served by all forms of transport, and this has been the case in London for some time now. Its rail network, once a running joke among British comedians, has now settled to become the envy of many a worldwide city. And the recent rebuilding of St Pancras railway station has marked a high point in terms of London’s ability to keep moving.

Located at St Pancras is a 4 star branch of the worldwide hotel giant Novotel. Although Novotel has among some people a reputation as a more functional hotel than a location for more luxurious pursuits, the branch at St Pancras has gained itself a reputation as being much more than the average hotel. Three minutes’ walk from the station – and five minutes from Kings’ Cross and Euston stations – the Novotel is not only well-placed for transport to and from London’s major airports, but is also just fifteen minutes’ tube ride away from Covent Garden (the home of opera in Britain), Oxford Street (the location for a great many of the UK’s chainstore “flagship stores” including House of Fraser, Marks and Spencer, Borders and HMV), the West End and the City itself. In addition to all of this it has its own auditorium named for famous playwright George Bernard Shaw, a critically acclaimed restaurant (Mirrors) and its own fitness centre. Very reasonably priced, the Novotel at St Pancras is a worthwhile choice for either the business traveler or the holidaymaker.
