The best thing about this hotel is its location. Very central and close to the tube.Also the fact that it has a kitchen, which eliminates the need for hotel breakfast or looking for places to have breakfast and spending time on it.

Great location, a short walk to St. Paul's Cathedral and the Tate Modern. The Barbican tube stop was less than a 5-minute walk away. Small kitchen had everything you needed (but some paper towels would have been helpful). Very comfortable bed. Modern bathroom / great shower. The only negative was that I was there during a spell of record heat,... More

We were going to a concert at the Barbican and at the last minute we decided to make a stay of it and found this hotel. I'm glad we did with a generous free upgrade to an apartment where we found ourselves on the sixth floor way above the traffic noise. The hotel has been tastefully refurnished and the rooms... More

Stayed here for one night when I couldn't get a place at my usual stop. I am glad I did. I was given a recently renovated room on the 7th floor and the job had been very well done. The bed was extremely comfortable and the soundproofing was really good at killing traffic noise. Other room fittings were very good... More

A clean and comfortable hotel no frills good value for money, handy location to the underground system. No cooked breakfast on offer just continental which we thought was a little on the expensive side at £12 per person.

Great accommodation. Stayed here before and was very impressed. The room is self contained with all facilities as a serviced apartment. The main reason I love this place is because it's so clean! Cannot fault it and will definitely stay again Bonus - USB ports in the loud sockets

We spent 4 nights at the Citadines. The location is very well served by the tube and close to the main attractions. The apartments have the right dimension for 2 people and the space is organized perfectly, with all the amenities you need for your stay. The staff is kind and always willing to help. We definitely raccomand this accomodation.

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.
