The hotel located not far from Angel underground station, surrounded by restaurants, drugstores and supermarket, I would say within 10 mins walk. When I arrived, there was only 1 counter opened, so I needed to wait for around 15 mins for check-in, but the staff was nice; I was staying in 1/F, however, there is no lift, only staircases, so...

Loved this place. Friendly staff. Beautifully decorated rooms. Close to the Tube. Reasonably priced for London. Will stay here again. Also found a great Chinese takeout. Plus lots of other good restaurants in the area.

Title says it all really. This hotel is in a good location in on the high st in Islington, close to shops, transport links and pubs. The interior is a little dated but clean. Main issue for us was that the air conditioning unit in our room was broken and we only discovered this when turning it on during the... More

Thank you for your review of your stay at the Hilton London Islington. I can see you had a great stay with us and again I would like to apologises for the heating/cooling system. As the temperature is still very cool at night the ventilation system automatically provides heat to compensate but I can completely appreciate that this may have... More

I stay here quite often when working in London and it's one of the nicer Hiltons. Yes part of the chain but the staff make the difference, always helpful and accommodating and the location is great.

I stayed here for a week in April, with my son, who had surgery at the hospital close by.Even though we didn't try all experiences of the hotel; the staff, especiaaly the houskeeping staff, were accomadating and took my son's illness into consideration.

Located very close (3 min walk) to the Angel tube station and not far to the St. Pancreas rail station, this is a perfect spot from which to base in London as it's close enough, but a bit out of the city center fray. The location is set back from the busier streets so it's very quiet. The property is... More

Went to Paris and London for our 25th wedding anniversary. This Hilton is a welcome change from the tiny Paris hotel room (not a Hilton). Good location - less than 5 minutes walk to Angel station (underground); bus routes in front of hotel; mall, grocery, shops, eateries around hotel. No hotel shuttle so book a taxi with hotel prior to... More

Extremely quiet room with a very comfortable bed. One of the best designed rooms that I've stayed at in quite a while. Plenty of power points and a fantastic shower. It is close to Angel tube and many restaurants and cafes. Staff were extremely helpful. Can't wait to come back!

Unusually I was travelling on my own and found the location reassuring, i.e. no problem returning from the Underground on my own late at night. On arrival the staff were most helpful and the room was well appointed. I assume the 'naughty corner' was for suitcases, but without unpacking, it was not convenient to lift the suitcase over the gap... More

First review on Trip advisor, but feel that I have to review this glorious hotel and staff. My wife and myself visited here in August 2014 and cannot fault the hotel or staff, from booking the stay to leaving the hotel we had a fantastic time. We booked in an executive room for 4 nights, to which we were greeted... More
