There are few hotels where you can combine business and the dynamic buzz of London nightlife. Hop off the train at Euston, and just across the road from St Pancras, The Standard offers you the best of both worlds. From the moment you arrive you know this is not your ordinary, functional, stuffy hotel. The former Camden Town Hall building has been transformed into a trendy, modern escape that is anything but simply Standard. With a bright red elevator running up the outside of the building to the fabulous rooftop restaurant, to the chilled library lounge on the ground with the sound studio and DJ, this is casual hip with the emphasis on fun. The buzz in the air is wonderfully infectious.


Open the door to your own private party in a cool, stylish room with everything you need to set the tone for an upbeat stay or a relaxing chill. Every room has a Bang & Olufsen Bluetooth speaker, a generously stocked mini-bar, even down to the lemon and limes for your G&Ts, to a large TV and trendy décor. Alternatively grab the funky Craig Green robes and snuggle down on the large comfy beds and fluffy down pillows. We were in the stunning King of Kings room, with a freestanding bath, seating area and magnificent floor to celling views of the city, looking out to The Shard, the London Eye, and the city’s bright lights. For those wanting to entertain in style, chose a terraced suite with an outside bathtub.


Michelin-starred chef Peter Sanchez-Iglesias merges Spanish and Mexican cuisine with tapas style food in Decimo. The restaurant has a rooftop terrace offering 360 degree views of the city. For casual dining the Double Standard serves hearty bar food, draught beers and classic cocktails while Isla serves seasonal cuisine with a focus on fresh vegetables and seafood - not to mention a fantastic healthy breakfast.
