The tube station services the Piccadilly line, from which you can reach Heathrow Airport direct, in about 20 minutes and King' Cross St Pancras Station, where the Eurostar terminus is located.
With such a fantastic location it's unsurprising that The Levin Hotel has been spoken of favourably by previous guests, who have raved over the convenience of its placement. The team at the hotel really does go above and beyond, with guests stating that staff helped them to accommodate 14 people and the bedrooms are so well appointed that guests have even ordered the same beds for their homes! The deluxe rooms are recommended by guests, for the little extras they provide and some guests have said that the first floor is a good place to stay, although some of the upper floor rooms have balconies; however, wherever you stay you will undoubtedly be pleased with the hotel.
