Designed for you
Like all urbanest properties, urbanest King’s Cross has an exceptionally high quality specification. For us it is the small details that make the difference. This is why we have ensured that all our rooms have double-insulated walls to allow you to work or study in peace.
All of 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 and, depending on the room you choose, either a private or a shared kitchen with first class appliances. Within our studio flats there is a contemporary galley kitchen which features a ceramic hob, microwave and fridge/freezer.
Rooms within larger apartments with 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.
The property offers an amazing range of rooms, including en-suite or private rooms, studio apartments and large studios. The private and en-suite rooms are organised into a range of different sizes cluster flats that can comfortably accommodate 2 to 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!
urbanest King’s Cross has 2 main social and work areas for the exclusive use of residents. Both are generous in size and provide ample space for study and relaxation. The first is a mezzanine area directly above reception. This has been divided into private, semi-private and communal work spaces and also has comfortable areas to chat and relax with friends.
The second is designed more predominantly for social activity. On the 13th floor our main common room is extremely spacious and offers incredible views across central London. There is a very big lounge with a supersize flat screen TV, soft seating, and free Wi-Fi and free iMac stations for resident use.
The building’s large reception area itself is a great place to meet up and socialise with friends with a table tennis table, 2 lounge areas and direct access to The Canal Reach Canteen, urbanest King’s Cross’s own on-site café offering a delicious, healthy and nutritious breakfast and lunch menu as well as all day snacks, great coffee and other refreshments.
The ground floor also houses our bicycle storage facility. This is where we keep our fold-up bikes, which are available for our residents to use anytime to get around town – completely free of charge. All the other facilities you would expect from a high quality apartment building are also offered including laundry rooms, football tables, a cinema room and much much more!
