I had very poor experience. No room service at all, no fresh towels or room cleaning at all. No breakfast. I would not recommend this hotel at all. There are way better hotel in similar price range in the same area.

Perfect location, I walked everywhere I needed to, and the subway is steps away from the hotel anyway. Staff was nice and helpful, and the hotel was comfortable and nice. Amenities are good and convenient.

The best thing about this hotel is that it is attached to the “Sourced Market” deli in the lobby. Don’t get me wrong, the hotel is fine; clean, modern, comfortable. Pretty much what you would expect from a ‘traditionally priced hotel’ in the city. But in this case, it’s what is NOT in the hotel literature that stands this hotel...

Really not the best hotel. Checked in. The 5 people in front of me were given 'upgraded rooms' on the renovated floor by the reception staff. I was not. My room was tired, dirty, the bed sagged in the middle, and the curtains had holes in them. I've stayed in worse, but not in a long time.

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.
