Stayed for a few days whilst attending an exhibition at the Islington Design Centre but you pay the price of convenience. £270 a night including breakfast, so believe me I had breakfast every morning. All the staff I encountered were friendly especially during check-in. The room was excellent, clean and fresh. Lots of surface area to lay out papers, documents,... More

Having stayed often at the Islington Hilton, I continue to find it satisfactory in every way. The Reception Staff are courteous, very helpful and professional. Mr. Harewood, Guest Relations Manager, does an excellent job and everything about the hotel is pleasing. The newly refurbished guest rooms and bathrooms are First Class - the beds are very comfortable - and the... More

I travel regularly to London and normally stay a little more central. However I chose the Hilton due to good online feedback, the location (which to be fair isn't that far out of the centre of London and the City anyway) and my affinity to the Hilton brand where I am a Diamond member. I certainly wasn't disappointed. The building... More

Great hotel, modern rooms. Breakfast is a nice way to wake up. I just wish the showers were hotter and the room heating system would get slightly hotter. The staff are friendly and the check-in and check-out is very quick. The area is fantastic with a great selection of restaurants and trendy bars.

I have stayed at this hotel many times in the last 3 years. But it has been about 9 months since the last time. I have written a few reviews about this hotel which all seem to have disappeared, but long story short I was never a fan. The building was old, staff was rude and the turnover rate was... More

Just as as you would expect. Good Hotel, all staff friendly and very helpful. We only used the restaurant for the buffet style breakfast which had plenty of variety as well as the availability to request your own particular breakfast choice. Five minutes walk to Angel Tube station and only one stop from Kings Cross which makes for easy access... More

This is my hotel of choice when visiting London on business. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and relatively spacious by London standards, and the location is close to nightlife, restaurants, shopping, and Angel Station. The Axis bar and restaurant has a good selection for quick bits and the breakfast is always good. I stay... More

My partner and I recently stayed a night here, so we could attend a local event.

Having stayed at a few Hilton's around the world, I must commend on the functionality and the service levels of this particular hotel. Very impressed with the facilities, no doubt they keep to the international standard, top location and very warm staff.
