Worst Hotel I've ever been to... and I've stayed in some terrible places. 40 minutes to get checked in, as there was only 1 person working in the hotel. Checking in, our patience wasn't acknowledged, nor was there an apology for the long wait. Just a very rude receptionist who didn't want to be at work. We were given room...

I booked this hotel after reading mixed reviews, so didn't really know what to expect. It is located about a five minute walk from Kings Cross Station, and you pass various shops and food vendors including Subway and Five Guys, there is also a CoOp at the top of the street. Our room was basic, but clean, so I was...

Booked this hotel and then read the reviews and was worried, thankfully this was unfounded. The Hotel is an old building which could do with some updating, but given the price paid and the fantastically convenient location I would stay there again. The rooms are on the small side but who stays in their room, its a place to lay...

For £54 / night including breakfast in London (after a previous bad experience at another hotel), we where not holding much hope. As it was for just an overnight stay, we where prepared to "rough it" and put up. The hotel is in walking distance from King's Cross station. We arrived around 1.30pm (check in was from 2pm) reception was...

We were at Arriva Hotel just for one night, the room was small but absolutely clean with all the necessary staff. In the morning the breakfast (we had it include on the price) was amazing, a kind of buffet with a lot of healthy choices. We left the hotel so happy, the only 'bad' thing that we find was he...

The hotel Room was absolutely unlivable, it had not been cleaned. There were curly black hairs on the pillows, dust in the corners. The curtains were ripped and there was a musty moldy smell in the room. I travel often and I have never been so disgusted with a hotel room. Upon asking the merchant for a refund they denied...

Stayed here for a weekend recently. Reasonably priced for London but small, tired and in need of some basic maintenance. Friendly helpfull staff. The worse part was that the restaurant is too small for the number of guests. We true three times on the first morning before we could find a table to sit at, we gave up on the...

This hotel is extremely bad and should be avoided. Its good location is what tricked us into booking here, unfortunately the location is the only thing positive which can be said about this hotel. The rooms have a serious heating problem. Even though the radiators are off, it still gets heated extremely due to heating pipes which go through the...

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.
