This used to be a clean but dated Holiday Inn which you could get for a very good price. Now it's still reasonably priced but after undergoing a massive refurbishment, it feels more like a modern Crown Plaza with impressive bathrooms, nice beds and good furniture. In fact, staff told me it will become a Crowne Plaza hotel by name...

I booked this for a group of five colleagues including me, for one night, including breakfast. Check in and out is slow; they clearly haven't got the process sorted yet so despite having plenty of staff on reception desks it still results in a 5-10 minute wait because each person takes so long to process. The rooms were all good,...

I booked this the holiday inn kings cross Bloomsbury based on the distance from Kings Cross station and price. The hotel room was OK but staff particularly at the bar could be more professional. For the price you could do better

We stayed at this hotel for a weekend. There are some renovation works on-going but really did not cause any issues. The staff are nice and helpful. The rooms are very good, nice clean room, great beds with a really comfortable mattress. The bathroom has also been renovated and a nice powerful walk in shower installed. Breakfast was buffet style...

Arrived to find building work, apparently this is shown on their website and the website we booked through but this was written at the end of a long paragraph about the hotel facilities, so not obvious unless you read all the details. Works are not due to finish until the new year so be warned. Room was clean, nice bathroom...

This looks like a four star from the outside and foyer. The rooms are comfortable and tiny and clean. The eating area and food lacked the same style. Downstairs was grim, outdated and smelt of previously cooked food. The breakfast had a good range of poor quality food. Understood they are renovating but the cost didn't reflect the noise and...

I stay at the Holiday Inn regularly for work and its great - rooms are clean, fresh and lovely - they have just been refurbished. The room service menu - is a little limited - but that is due to the refurbishment. All staff are really helpful and polite and make it a pleasure to stay

Spacious enough room and a nice feeling after renovation. Single window is locked. Wifi is OK. Staff is nice and helpful. Location - about a 15-minute walk from Kings Cross station, or a short bus ride. There's a nice looking pub-restaurant on the other side of the street, though I didn't try it. Going to key attractions using several buses...

5 minute bus ride from Kings Cross. Check in was not till 2pm which meant filling an hour in. Room was good, quiet, smallish but comfortable. Deal included a meal on 1st night, in a makeshift restaurant as ongoing refurb but food was very good and kids enjoyed it too. Breakfast was good. If staying here it is best to...

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.
