I have stopped here on and off for many years and it is not my hotel of choice (too far from a tube station). I thought they had managed to renovate all the old HI's - now this one is ok in the corridor, but not the best in the rooms. The room I am in does not have enough... More

We booked this hotel for one night. When we arrived we struggled to understand the hotel receptionist as English was not her first language and when we arrived at our room were surprised to find no information pack on facilities at the hotel.

Perfect for a weekend of business - close to transport links, good price and clean. Didn't eat or drink here but both were offered. Staff were helpful and friendly. Rooms were quite small but as expected. Would recommend.

I booked this hotel for business based on location. What I didn't realise is that it's a 15 mins walk (no mean feat with bags) from Kings Cross.

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.
