The Pullman London St Pancras has been designed to exude high quality coupled with comfort and functionality to suit clientele of seasoned travellers.
The highly contemporary architecture and design of Pullman London St Pancras is instantly striking. The essence of modern London is captured in the design of the hotel’s public areas.
The design takes much of its inspiration from its location, drawing on the urban connectivity or the area, the linear images of railway life and the bustling and energetic style of modern city life, all visible throughout the hotel’s creative, textured and colourful design.
