Stayed here as we were having dinner in Highbury. A nice hotel, our room was recently refurbished and had everything we would normally look for. Its location is its selling point as it central for everything in Islington with easy access to Clerkenwell, Kings Cross, St Pancras and Highbury. Islington is looking pretty good again and a joy to be... More

We arrived when the temperature outside was over 30 degrees and were pleased to find that our room had a very efficient air conditioning system which kept us very comfortable throughout our stay. The room which had recently been skilfully refurbished to a good standard met all our requirements . The staff in all departments were friendly and efficient .... More

We spent 3 nights there last fall and it was as good as expected from a Hilton Hotel. Our room was great, more than enough room while still being comfy and it was like new, not old and tired as some hotels have been that we have stayed at in London.The location was nice close to the tube and very...

I have to start with the “business facilities”. The blurb in the rooms states that one can use the hotel as an office away from home with “state of the art equipment” and expert advice on hand. Armed with this reassuring message, I went down to find these facilities. “Oh, we don’t have a business centre, but if you like... More

Not a 4 Star experience. In comparison to other Hilton hotels not on the same level. Internet drops every 10 minutes, so impacts conference calling and Skype. No pool or in-house amenities. Staff seem pained to provide welcome experience. Had billing issues which took 3 days to resolve.

This is very decent hotel - not too large, quite quiet, located 5 min walk from underground, with 10 min. connection to main attractions. Neighborhood also offers a lot of restaurants. As a HH Diamond I got a free upgrade to executive room, lounge access and small bottle of wine. Room was spacious enough, modern and clean. Breakfasts were nice,... More

But not worth the money. We thought the rooms would be bigger and there might be a gym or jacuzzi (we checked after booking :(). In future I would look for a similar experience (bland/shiny/corporate) for less money or perhaps a less shiny experience for the same money. We only stayed one night. The staff were friendly & efficient and... More
