Hipmunk's most popular hotels in Kings Cross
About Kings Cross
While Christopher Wren was building the West End, the Earl of Southampton was laying out London's first square in Bloomsbury. Literary residents moved in after the "godless college" of UCL was opened in 1826, and made Bloomsbury's bohemian reputation. Today students and academics follow well-beaten paths from local bookshops to university buildings, while map-toting tourists meander from upscale B&Bs to the colossal British Museum. Nearby, the seven acres of Coram's Fields commemorate Thomas Coram, the pioneering philanthropist who established the Foundlings Hospital to house London's street urchins. King's Cross has since become an international hub, and the fantastical spires of St. Pancras Renaissance top a five-star Marriott hotel.

Historic yet hip as you please, London trades tabloid gossip during intermission at West End theater premieres, works up a fierce appetite for East End curry at Tate Modern art shows, and crooks its pinky over high tea at Claridge's before trying on Central Saint Martins' latest punk-chic for London Fashion Week.
