This looks like a four star from the outside and foyer. The rooms are comfortable and tiny and clean. The eating area and food lacked the same style. Downstairs was grim, outdated and smelt of previously cooked food. The breakfast had a good range of poor quality food. Understood they are renovating but the cost didn't reflect the noise and...

I stay at the Holiday Inn regularly for work and its great - rooms are clean, fresh and lovely - they have just been refurbished. The room service menu - is a little limited - but that is due to the refurbishment. All staff are really helpful and polite and make it a pleasure to stay

Spacious enough room and a nice feeling after renovation. Single window is locked. Wifi is OK. Staff is nice and helpful. Location - about a 15-minute walk from Kings Cross station, or a short bus ride. There's a nice looking pub-restaurant on the other side of the street, though I didn't try it. Going to key attractions using several buses...

5 minute bus ride from Kings Cross. Check in was not till 2pm which meant filling an hour in. Room was good, quiet, smallish but comfortable. Deal included a meal on 1st night, in a makeshift restaurant as ongoing refurb but food was very good and kids enjoyed it too. Breakfast was good. If staying here it is best to...

Poor start. We had to reject the first room which had serious water damage. See the pic. Hotel staff claimed ignorance..yeah right. Hotel is clean and tidy enough but room compact at best. Located in an area I didn't want to walk round at night and breakfast price was extortionate. All in all I won't be returning and my advice...

A quick overnight stay for work, a good 10 minute walk from kings cross but your rewarded with an almost refused hotel that will soon become a crown plaza. Pool area looked small but welcoming. The restaurant was a bit strange for evening meal as I think it's still in the refurb stage, but the food was really nice after...

I tend to use IHG hotels for business stays because their reward scheme is the most beneficial and gives options to then use points at their better properties in the intercontinental group. When London gets busy, the kings cross HI is generally one of the last to fill up because until lately it has been a bit dated versus IHGs...

This is the second time we’ve stayed at the Holiday Inn Kings Cross/Bloomsbury and I doubt it will be the last. Our bedroom was very clean and well presented. Whilst it’s not the biggest hotel bedroom that I’ve had in central London it was very acceptable. The bathroom again is very good with one of the most powerful showers I’ve...

A one night stay mid-week. The hotel is 10-15 minutes walk from the nearest tube station and so not in the best location. Although the hotel is being refurbished, it didn't impact you once you're in the hotel. The room was very spacious and very modern. The bathroom had a walk in shower, however, the design could be better as...

Dear Phil W, Thank you for your recent review of our hotel and services. I was happy to read that you found our room spacious and well appointed. On a different note, I sincerely apologize for the less impressive service you experienced in the hands of our Reception team. That's not typical of our usual standards and I reached you...

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.
