Housed in the former Camden Town Hall Annex in London’s thriving King’s Cross neighbourhood, the 1974 Brutalist building has been meticulously restored and sets the perfect stage for The Standard’s first hotel outside America. The Standard, London has 266 rooms ranging from our snug Cosy Core rooms to terraced suites with outdoor bathtubs overlooking the dramatic St Pancras station. On the ground floor you'll find Double Standard, our street facing bar and restaurant home of our legendary burger, Thursday happy-hour and our Bottomless Sunday Brunch. (Don't forget to book!) Next door is The Library Lounge, where our carefully curated library pays homage to the building’s original use, and, our Sounds Studio, home of our virtual culture hub, Sometimes Radio. From October 1st Decimo will be returning, our 10th-floor restaurant, where Chef Peter Sanchez-Iglesias’ showcases his live fire cooking surrounded by 360-degree views of London - only accessible by our iconic exterior red pill lift.

We’ll update these procedures as things change and evolve, so be sure to check back here before you check in.

Sounds Studio & Sometimes Radio

Streaming Daily 

The Sounds Studio is the beating heart of The Standard, London’s musical programming set within the ground floor’s Library Lounge and the home to our lockdown project, Sometimes Radio. A recording booth, a performance pod, a living magazine – the Sounds Studio is a broadcast recording venue that with the open of a window can act as a public stage to hotel guests and beyond. Listen to fresh mixes, panel discussions and archive sessions from the Library Lounge below at Sometimes Radio.

The Library Lounge

We're open for hotel guests to use this space to chill or work but currently operating with no service. Double Standard is open next door.Nestled within our brutalist walls is in fact a library but not one you might expect. Once home to the Camden Council Library, the space has been transformed into equal parts book-filled haven and cosy lounge where you can get stuck into books from categories including order and chaos, science and religion or, one of our favourites, adult relationships.


Currently Closed Due to COVID-19

Due to COVID 19 Isla remains closed at this time, but our sister restaurant Double Standard is open next door but a selection of our favorite Isla dishes available. Book a table here. Helmed by London’s own Adam Rawson, and designed by Shawn Hausman, Isla offers an approachable seasonal menu featuring light proteins and a predominantly natural wine list. Isla’s name is inspired by Britain’s island geography and is ideal for long, lounging al fresco meals in the serene garden. The outdoor space features a retractable awning, allowing guests to enjoy the summer sun or the cool shade.
