We stayed here for the first leg of our trip. Luckily we are an IHG member because we were given priority check in and free wifi, otherwise that would not have been the case. The wifi is also rather expensive if you have to pay. The hotel is a decent walk from the metro. They have a restaurant in the... More

Just returned from a one night stay with my other half at the kings cross holiday inn, it was a nice central location and easy for us to commute around from - I got lucky, I booked this with late rooms under a 'secret hotel' so I didn't see it until I booked and I was pleasantly surprised.

We had a comfortable stay between June 11 and 17, 2015. The check in was smooth and the room assigned on the 3rd floor was sufficiently spacious for 4 persons, including kids. The newly upgraded rooms on the 7th floor are a misnomer since the hotel charges you extra for them. The hotel doesn't offer free WIFI, which was a... More

Pleasant hotel in fairly calm surroundings for a big city. At fair walking distance from city center. Personnell pleasant and helpful, beds a bit on the hard side though. Breakfast not included in our room price, looked ok, we did not try, had morning coffee in our room only.

Stayed in newly refurbished executive room with 2 double beds. Room was nice, a bit on the small side but you're only supposed to sleep in it and we were out all day. Room had Tea/Coffe making facilities, a mini fridge with complimentary orange juice, kitkat and bottled water. Iron and Ironing board, hair dryer and toiletries - shampoo, conditioner... More

The third time I have stayed here, twice on business and once with my wife. The hotel is about a 10 minute easy stroll from King's Cross station and is in a quiet mostly residential area with good access to tourist attractions and transport links, bus, rail, underground and taxi. Parking is limited but available. The hotel has always provided... More

So this was an extremely busy London weekend and this hotel was perfectly ok to accommodate my needs! It's been well stated it is dated and the bar area etc is tired looking, but they seem to be working their way through it all. (The pool was closed!). The rooms are fine and clean and comfortable. Breakfast was also right... More

It all looks like a beautiful factory when you see it on video; its like a medieval beauty build with modern materials. The driveway in doesn't look that attractive, and no bag boys hanging around as in other Holiday inn with the same rating. But " ma ma mia" , as the Italians say, as you walk in, you see... More

Had a refurbished room on the 8th floor with great views of the London skyline towards Canary Wharf. Room was good sized and very comfortable with stylish furnishings and art pieces. Efficient air-con came in handy on a sultry London night. Great bathroom too but the modern, open shower allows the water to splash everywhere! Food and drink were reasonably... More

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.
