Description of accommodation

The property offers amazing en-suite rooms and are organised into a range of different size cluster flats that can comfortably accommodate 4 or 8 students. It shouldn’t be forgotten also that the views from several of the shared living areas of the cluster flats are some of the best in London!

All our super comfortable beds have a high-quality memory foam mattress to give you a great night’s sleep and every room has luxurious under-floor heating which is controlled by an individual thermostat in your room to keep you warm in the winter months. Super-fast broadband keeps you connected and the entire building (including all study and social areas) benefits from free Wi-Fi.

In addition, the rooms are extremely well appointed in general with every student benefiting from a spacious, fitted study desk, plenty of storage for clothes, shoes and books. The shared kitchen facilities feature a kitchen and living area with fridge/freezer, microwave oven, ceramic hob, extensive cupboard space, stone worktops and a dishwasher. The bathroom facilities are also of the highest specification.

Urbanest King’s Cross has 2 main social and work areas for the exclusive use of residents. The first is a mezzanine area directly above reception. This has been divided into private, semi-private and communal work spaces with free iMac stations for resident use. The second area is designed more predominantly for social activity. On the 13th floor our main common room is extremely spacious and offers views across London. There is a very big lounge with a supersize flat screen TV, soft seating, and free Wi-Fi.

Description of local area

Urbanest King’s Cross is a short walk from King’s Cross St Pancras underground Station which gives residents access to 6 London underground lines (Circle Line, Hammersmith & City Line, Metropolitan Line, Northern Line, Piccadilly Line and the Victoria Line). St Pancras and King’s Cross rail terminals give easy access to the UK’s national rail network and St Pancras International is home to the Eurostar, providing non-stop train services to mainland Europe. Caledonian Road Overground Station is also just a short walk from Urbanest King’s Cross, piecing together the last few areas of London.

Being located in one of London’s most vibrant new quarters, Urbanest King’s Cross has many bars, pubs, shops and restaurants on its doorstep. Just south of the building you will find the likes of The Big Chill House, Scala, The Lexington and many other venues in which to discover new artists and unwind with friends. Egg London is just around the corner, whilst Camden Town to the North provides a whole variety nightlife, music venues and cafes as well as the world-famous Camden Lock and Camden Market. London West End is also just a couple of stops away on the tube.
