The first thing you notice is the very friendly and efficient staff at the reception. They were very helpful also in finding me a cosy dinner place in a short walking distance from the hotel. The hotel is no nonsence - just as I like it. Best of all is the location: only few stops from the Eurostar train station... More

I've stayed at other Citadines hotel/apartments but this was the best for me. One bedroom apartment, had everything I needed. The staff was great, they were very accommodating. The apartment was clean and had everything I needed to make my 10 day stay in London comfortable. I have no qualms about staying here again.

Stayed here for three nights last week in London and the picture included are the construction workers outside my window at 7:30am. The building behind the hotel is under renovation and these guys work everyday including weekends and it's incredibly loud. London temperatures were in the 80's last week so without air conditioning we had to keep the windows open... More

This is a great hotel, we stayed in a studio apartment. A little cramped but very comfortable bed and good amenities. No air conditioning turned out to be a problem as the room got extremely warm through the nights and we had to borrow a fan from the front desk. That's it for the negatives though, the hotel is in...

I was given one of the newly refurbished studio and it was great. It is clean, quiet and close to my company's office in Angel. I will definitely stay there again and would recommend it to anybody who needs a place to stay in the city and doesn't want to spend a fortune.

The hotel is 5 minutes walk from the Barbican Station (Metropolitan Line), 15 minutes walk from St Paul Cathedral. Staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. There is a storage room where you can lock your luggage if you leave hotel for a short trip and want to check-out. One minor issue - the window can't be opened wider than... More

Near to City University and CAS University in London (our interest places). The studio was OK: even small size, clean and comfortable. My recommendation is to visit Barbican Center, very closed to the hotel - surprinsingly quiet and relaxing!

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.
