If wanting to stay in London, choose this hotel. From arrival to departure you will be treated as though you are royalty. All staff, without exception, provide an excellent service. The breakfast choice is fantastic that even the fussiest diners can find something. It is always well presented.

We booked the Hilton recently as we had travelled up to attend a Birthday party nearby, the rooms are reasonable, clean and tidy. We attended the Birthday party in the evening and upon returning to the hotel we ordered room service. We were advised that we needed to come to reception to pay either with cash or with a card...

Stayed in the hotel on business. Check-in was professional and efficient. Got a great upgrade too. The room was fresh, well presented and clean ..... with great temperature control. Slept really well ..... comfy bed. Not much sole though but that's probably to be expected. Breakfast was undercooked ..... if you open early for breakfast you need to make sure... More

The Hilton Islington was ideal for my business trip as it offered a lot of amenities on the doorstep as well as being a lovely hotel with great customer service. There is a tube station and bus stop very closeby and lots of nice eateries in the vicinity.

Myself and two friends ventured to this place, it was close to the station and convenient location. We got there and tea was given fairly quickly. It was a small selection but we still managed to find something we liked. The desserts and sandwiches arrived...we were slightly disappointed with the sandwiches, in previous afternoon teas, the sandwiches were unlimited and... More

Stayed just for one night. I chose the hotel due to it's proximity to Euston and the Northern Line. Dead easy to get to from Euston and Angel tube is just a few minute's walk. Islington is a nice area, with plenty of shops, restaurants and bars. We ate at Jamie Oliver's Italian which is just across the road from... More

What a lovely hotel. So welcoming and wonderful rooms. The bed was very comfortable and the room was clean and spacious. We paid extra to have breakfast every morning and it was a lovely way to start the day with. We couldn't recommend this hotel enough. Brilliant location and 5 minutes walk from the nearest tube station (angel). It is... More

I was impressed with this hotel. It's tucked away off the main street. The staff are very pleasant and the hotel is fairly modern. The bar serves a nice pint of Guinness. It's ideal for a business trip and I would recommend it.
