Friendly staff, impressive breakfast, and location near the Angel tube stop. Our original room had no AC, so they upgraded us with many apologies. Almost too friendly as they made several calls and room stops the night we traveled non-stop for 16 hours from America. Buy an Oyster metro card to save a lot of money since the hotel is... More

Terrible front desk staff. The lady at the front desk was road and extremely unhelpful. No rush to stay there again. The service has really gone downhill at that hotel. New staff is something they urgently need to look into.

Hotel room nice, spacious and clean, smelling like brand new! The bed was huge! The staff was very nice and sent us some strawberries, chocolate, wine and a congratulations card, because I told them we were in our honeymoon! We loved it. Their breakfast is very good! The neighborhood is very good, with pubs, restaurants stores and beautiful people around!... More

My husband, teenage daughter and myself recently spent four nights in a king suite. We like to spread out when we travel so the king in the bedroom and the pullout in the living room was perfect. The pullout was comfortable and there was actually enough room in the living room to move around with it left out as a... More

Nice quiet hotel, good location. Best hotel shower ever, made up for not having a bath. Room clean, well furnished, really comfortable bed and more plugs that you can ever need. Really nice bathroom door handles. Breakfast good, usual fare although custard filled pastry was rather good.

Stayed here for a family wedding which was 10 or so minutes away so this was one of the closest hotels to it. We had 5 rooms in total with one suite, one executive room and three standards. With the suite and executive room they were entitled to the lounge which is a nice touch. Suffice to say I was... More

The Hilton Islington is a superb value for the price. The staff is terrific; the service and attention to customer needs is among the best I've seen. The location is great - quieter neighborhood area but close to the tube and the main attractions London has to offer. Food and bar were very good.

We stayed here for a long midsummer weekend and family wedding. The size of the room was excellent and we had fantastic views over the city. The bathroom was spacious and the shower was wonderful. The location right in the centre of Islington was perfect and convenient for transport into the city.

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
