“Super accommodation, great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is a really nice hotel that is located in a good part of London. We have stayed in a B &B in Belgravia twice before and found that this Hilton in Islington is far superior and much less expensive than the B & B. We enjoyed the walk from Islington to Piccadilly and Westminster, although it might be a bit of a hike for some. One drawback is that the Wifi isn't free in each room but it is available for free in the lobby. We ate at restaurants outside of the hotel therefore cannot comment on the hotel restaurants. Front desk staff were helpful and the room decor was brand new and very comfortable and attractive. We would highly recommend this hotel and would return there ourselves. The price was very reasonable too.

I stayed here for three nights in June 2014 with my family. It is real cosy comfortable hotel
with many eateries nearby, shops and supermarket nearby yet quiet around the hotel.
The room and bathroom are very clean. We met one duty manager, he was very helpful and friendly
and so are his other staff in the reception.... thanks ....

We really enjoyed our stay.

Has the Hilton chain really released their menu with not one vegetarian main dish? We asked in the restaurant for the menu and questioned the lack of vegetarian options. We was told - "well the soup is vegetarian" !!! The only option was to order from their room service menu (an omelette) !
Staff service was fantastic but shocked that a major hotel group could even consider this acceptable?

I went for a week's work to London. Great hotel and more reasonable than others in the area. One of the better places I have lived in given its pricing.

Pros:
1. Clean towels and a beautiful big bed
2. Free wifi
3. Fresh fruits in the room.
4. Complimentary water
5. Helped me get reasonable taxi to the airport.
6. Courteous staff at the reception.

Cons:
1. Could have added free breakfast

Room Tip: Get a room closer to the lift, the walk with your luggage can be a pain if your room is a lil far...

First impressions very business type hotel. Young lady on reception was very polite and friendly. Offered upgrade options which we took. Room very impressive. Large screen LG tv which was crystal clear...most hotels are poor weak signal. Very few coat hangers on the room but a quick call to room service it was quickly sorted by the same lady on reception! Very quite room can't hear a thing-recommended. Nice comfy bed. Breakfast was excellent...good selection. We had exec upgrade which meant the exec lounge....dinner time was a few biscuits and fruit plus tea/coffee. Tea time 6ish smallish room with wine/berets in the fridge and small selection of tasty fancy nibbles. No spirits like some Hinton Hotels- disappointment if you like that. Free WiFi for all hotel users but was very slow at times, which is to be expected. Note to 3 network customers the 4g signal/call network is very weak. Apart from that would stay again. Good location for London

We stayed in Hilton, Islington early last year and loved it. Now, finding the opportuntity to visit London for a "new designer exhibition "at the confrence centre right next door we just knew that the Hilton would be a great place to have lunch. Had a brllliant meal, our (grown up) Grandchildren were made extremely welcome, food was fabulous, service was second to none, cannot wait to go back!
