We're going to be staying there for a couple of nights, next month. It's been over a decade since we lived there, so...

1: It the area around the V&A, Imperial, etc still decent and safe? There's a hotel there that SWMBO likes.

2: Did the gentrification of Kings Cross ever amount to anything or is it still a hellhole of drugs and prostitution? I ask because I have a soft spot for the Great Northern Hotel, the first railway hotel to be built in the age of steam.
