Myself and my husband stayed here as part of a mystery hotel, never having stayed in a holiday inn before, on first impressions we were impressed, we arrived at around 1pm but were aware that we couldn't book in before 2pm, but we were allowed to leave our cases there. We arrived back at about 4pm to be told our... More

We checked in to this hotel today. We arrived early so that we could leave our bags and explore London immediately with a view to checking in later but we're delighted to be told that one of our rooms was ready immediately despite it only being mid-morning. Check in by Lucia was friendly and quick- were very pleased with the... More

Not the worst 4* hotel we have ever stayed in but definitely not the best. The good bits:- friendly and helpful reception staff, great newly refurbished room on 7th floor, good location for buses The not-so-good-bits:- the lifts were inadequate and could not cope with the amount of people wanting to use them, poor choice at breakfast especially if you...

The rooms were clean and the beds plus linen super comfy & clean.(i m fussy about pillows etc). My only issue was with the designing of the toilets. The shower cubicles are so weird with a few puny inches of screen that no matter how hard u squeeze urself, the floor of the 'mouse sized' toilet will get totally wet!!!!!

We have just returned from a weekend in London staying at this hotel and can't really fault it. The reception staff are very friendly and helpful, as are the restaurant staff.

We were quite happy apart from a couple of issues each were brought to the hotels attention but were met with a shoulder shrug.

Stayed on the 8th floor in newly refurbished executive room. Was clean and new but small. Walls were very thin and our noisy neighbours kep us awake. Fridge was useful and stocked with refreshments but wasn't replenished for our second night. There is still refurbishment work going on 6th floor, very loud drilling in the day. Breakfast was standard but... 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.
