This is a really nice hotel that is located in a good part of London. We have stayed in a B &B in Belgravia twice before and found that this Hilton in Islington is far superior and much less expensive than the B & B. We enjoyed the walk from Islington to Piccadilly and Westminster, although it might be a... More

We was told - "well the soup is vegetarian" !!! The only option was to order from their room service menu (an omelette) ! Staff service was fantastic but shocked that... More

We have been staying at this hotel for the past 20 years, every time we visit London, because it is located near our family. It is a clean, comfortable, quiet hotel, very conveniently located for all the London sites, with friendly, helpful and efficient staff and a very good breakfast. Highly recommended.

Had a couple of nights here while on business in London and found the place hassle free with friendly service. Great location with plenty of choice for restaurants and bars on the doorstep, handy for Kings Cross train station and for the tube into Central London. Will definitely use again.
