Arriva Hotel London, England
United Kingdom > England > London > 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

After a cancelled flight, my friend and I booked in for the night. The place was filthy, dust and dirt on the skirting and walls. There was a questionable receptionist who was not helpful at all. We couldn't bring ourselves to use the facilities and left very early in the morning

This is reasonable for the price paid. Close to tube stations and taxis were overpriced either.
Room was ok. Would have preferred fresh ham and some kind of sponge cake if it is continental. Very few english guests though

Hello! We are arriving at Gatwick Airport at 11:10AM on tuesday, May 22th. Can anyone please suggest the best way to get to Arriva hotel using public transportation. How much does it cost? Where can we buy tickets? Is a reservation required?
Check also with the Company First Capital Connect they go direct to King's cross. Or the site trainline: 1 hour to st.pancras and then a walk of about 16 minutes.

Diz aqui no site que oferece translado para o aeroporto. É gratuito? Se não, qual o valor para buscar duas pessoas no aeroporto heathrow? E para levar ao aeroporto gatwick? Muito obrigada :)
