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, Aperol Spritz slushy 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. Our 10th-floor restaurant, Decimo is back, 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.

Michelin-starred Chef Peter Sanchez-Iglesias merges the Spanish cuisine of his family with his love of Mexico for his debut London restaurant, Decimo. Expect lots of flavour - gambas rojas, mangalitza pork, mezcal cocktails and a dramatically different tortilla. Situated on the 10th floor of the Standard, London, Decimo is uniquely positioned with floor-to-ceiling windows and dramatic views across the London skyline and only accessible by our exterior red-pill lift - book your table below.
Sounds Studio & Sometimes Radio
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
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.
Isla is Currently Closed
Isla remains closed at this time - you can find a selection of Isla's dishes at our sister restaurant Double Standard. 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.
