We stayed 3 nights in Hilton London Islington. We enjoyed our stay in this hotel. The location is perfect. Many restaurants next to the hotel but rooms are quiet. Comfortable, clean, nice room, good breakfast, lovely staff and good price. Thank you very much!

We stayed recently in the refurbished rooms and the new decor is excellent. There was an issue with the smoke detector above the bead where the light flashed throughout the night. Also the lighting switches were hard to work out meaning that the bedside lights came on during the night when the bathroom light was switched on!

Usual standard expected by a Hilton branded hotel. Staff are extremely helpful and welcoming. Rooms have recently been refurbished and are to a comfortable standard (although some only have showers; no bath!). For those with access, the Exec lounge is a great benefit. There are no leisure facilities; not even a small gym/exercise room. Food is OK; have eaten many... More
