one night stay for work. My room was decent enough - 2 double beds, lovely duvet and comfy mattress. Choice of firm or soft pillows. I had forgotten my toothbrush and toothpaste but housekeeping quickly provided a complimentary one. The bathroom was ok - would have preferred the few stray, dark hairs from a previous guest or the cleaner to...

Our stay here was a bit mixed. The rooms themselves are nice, the beds were comfortable and everything was clean. The breakfast was very average - food sitting out for a while and of average quality, hot water for tea not very hot - but at least there was a decent selection of foods. On the other hand we had...

Sorry to say came away feeling a bit let down. The staff are reasonably pleasant and helpful but the hotel and rooms are tired. The room was large enough but the sprung mattress was in need of considerably more springs and a bit of oil to tone down the squeaks. At £14 the buffet style breakfast is overpriced, even if...

Having recently stayed in the Pescana in Chelsea, I was a little disappointed with my stay at the holiday inn. Whilst the hotel itself is very large, it is a little tired, with stains on the bed frame and tired furniture. Having said that, the basics are all there. The rooms are a good size and have a good sized...

We stayed at the Holiday Inn for one night on March 14th 2015. We were 2 adults and 2 children (3 and 7). Check-in was smooth and as IHG members our room was ready. We had also been upgraded to an executive room and given complimentary wine which was a nice surprise! The beds were comfy, the room was spacious...

We visited London for 2 nights with our grandchildren to show them the sites. It's a brisk 10 minute walk from the railway station but we were delighted with this hotel.

The hotel offers what you would expect from Holiday Inn, relative comfort with service that delivers what you need. I stayed twice, two separate stays in different rooms. Both rooms were of reasonable size but were tired. I believe they have recently started a full refurb of rooms however. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. The TV...

Staying in Clerkenwell

Neighbourhood 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.
