Yes, the hotel is a bit tired, a bit out of the way, a bit far from tube stations etc. But the rooms are spacious enough (although you cannot open the window, which is very annoying because can;t get fresh air). BUT it is relatively cheap and that makes it a good value hotel. Plus: It has a great indian... More

Centrally located, pleasant and helpful staff, good breakfast and rooms a bit larger than we're used to in London. It was nice to have a small couch and mini-fridge for the brief times we spent in the room in between explorations of London. The only thing I found odd was that they included a trouser press in the room but... More

The hotel had friendly staff. The Indian restraunt food was acceptable but what made up for it was the wonderful breakfast that had good quality ingredients. We had a clean comfy room on the 6th floor. We had a great nights sleeping a lovely big bed.it was a surprisingly quiet location for central London. A lovely 2 night stay.

Staying in Clerkenwell

Neighborhood Profile
Clerkenwell
Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site of an ancient meat market which remains in operation today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough time wondering through the area's maze of streets and you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky models passing between Clerkenwell's handful of fashion houses. Far outnumbering the models are craftspeople and designers, many of them are more than happy to welcome visitors into their studios and showrooms.
