I am planning my first trip to London Feb 6th-13th. I am going on a strict budget and have booked Hotel Meridiana in Kings Cross area (B&B @ $60 USD a night). I am getting mixed messages on the area, some people say the area i'm in is totally fine, two minutes from tube, south of the station in Argyle Sq by a million other small B&Bs. But online i'm reading different, that's it's shabby, "seedy" area.
I'm a solo female traveler, so just need to feel safe. That said, i'm from NYC so perhaps my tolerance is higher for "seedy" hoods. Any advice, feedback please? thank you so much!
