I have stayed here a few times now, and never wanted to be out in the neighbourhood any later than I can help. Which is a shame, because a short walk towards Russell Square and there are lots of lovey bars and restaurants. This hotel is undergoing refurbishment, and the room I stayed in was very quiet, clean and fresh,... More

Stayed here whilst working away from my base office. After check in requested a different room, which was granted on a newly refurbed floor. The modernisation is much needed, & being addressed. Wifi limited to only 2 devices, but called reception and a further wifi code granted. Great breakfast selection. Location is slightly awkward for transport links. Approximately a 12... More

I used to spend a lot of time in London during the working week and this hotel was my preferred home from home when it first opened and for several years afterwards. It had perhaps become a little tired when we stayed last January, but for our most recent visit in January 2016 we were upgraded to one of the... More

Despite the building works going on at this property, this is one of the better Holiday Inns within London. Upon arrival, I was processed quickly and efficiently and given an upgraded room that had been recently refurbished. The room (Whilst smaller than I had expected for the upgrade) was in first class condition, with a very comfortable bed with decent... More

Its got a great Indian restaurant below. But the hotel is very functional. Very basic. The lift is fairly small. However walking distance to the Kings Cross Metro station. Has a small shop right across the road for amenities.

Located within walking distance of Kings Cross Station this is a fine hotel, friendly staff and with everything at hand for a short stay. Plenty of choice of restaurants nearby. Best to book well in advance as prices vary over time.

Dear AustenAdams, I am so pleased to hear that you had a lovely stay with us. Thank you for this wonderful feedback. Indeed the hotel is at walking distance from Kings Cross or Farringdon stations. Exmouth Market, 3 minutes away from the hotel offers a great choice of cafes and restarants where to dine or chill out. Many thanks again... More

Had a brilliant time in London and the hotel/ food and staff were great. Would not recommend this hotel to people with mobility issues if they want to go out and about in London as the station is a bit of a walk. For my wife and I this was ideal to get a bit of air in our lungs... 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.
