3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I found the tactics of this property to be quite deceptive. The photos displayed on their website look nothing like the studio room we were given and, upon arrival, we discovered that the room did not have AirCon. It was more than 90F (32C) inside our room, and was not livable for us, especially on our first night in London.... More

A quiet residence in a location well connected and close to everything. The appartments are quiet, clean and very functionnal. A great location to stay in the city while still having the opportunity to come home and fix a quick dinner.

This was my first visit to this Citadines property, and I was caught out by the lack of air conditioning in my apartment - it was a hot day and the room was around 26C, a little too hot for me. I spoke with reception who informed me they were refurbishing and air con'd rooms were available - but sadly... More

Dear Kategrew, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us and fellow travellers. I am sorry you had to experience the property without the complete refurbishment- and so without air conditioning. As you say as well, some rooms have been refurbished already- these are our deluxe and 1bedroom apartments and have therefore a higher rate. We... More

Position allows you to get to key places around around London. Extra doors keep the rooms quiet during night. Added bonus! Spacious rooms with all that is required for a comfortable and relaxing stay.

The stay I personally found was uncomfortable as the room was small and incredibly hot, making for a very poor nights sleep. There were good points, a reasonable breakfast and 24 hour free coffee machine, but I need to sleep well to be refreshed. The window barely opens so there's no breeze to catch.

My friend and I wanted to come for a weekend in London and found this little gem. For the money (£216 for a Fri - Sun stay) this was brilliant. Very clean, friendly staff, breakfast and right next to the tube station. There is a tesco next to the hotel so all in all perfect. Would definitely go back and... More

Stayed here in June as my husband had a conference so it was chosen for the location of this. The Barbican Tube Station was also extremely close!

Hotel was fine considering the price, £100 per room for the night, beds spotlessly clean, however rooms would have been 100% better with air-con, we tried to sleep with the windows open as the room was incredibly hot however the traffic noise and pedestrian noise was very bad.

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.
