          Appalling; dirty, shabby, broken furniture, unhygienic bedding. Staff unwilling / unable to do anything about it. Seriously, the worst experience and I recommend that anybody reading this should book a different hotel.

          Clerkenwell
          Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
          of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
