We stayed one night. Were pleasantly surprised by the king size bed and well designed bathroom. Though the room was not air conditioned, it was quite quiet even with the windows opened. Cheerful and helpful staff at the reception also made our stay a pleasant one.

A Murphy Bed is a bed that you pull down out of a wall, saving space in the room during the day, but providing you with a decent mattress at night. In the case of this hotel, the 'Murphy Bed' turns out to be a sofa bed, which at night gives you an uneven, bar-in-you-back night's sleep. It then mystifies...

I'm staying in this hotel right now and I cannot WAIT until my holiday is over. It completely ruined my trip. 1. Website says it has air-conditioning. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO AIR CONDITIONING.

We chose this hotel because we needed to be close to Barbican. But after a few days we realized that the location is a convenient home base for the whole city. Its just a short walk to Barbican tube which is just 2 stops from Kings Cross. There is a Tesco Metro nearby and plenty of dining choices. Although there...

We were moved to this hotel as our original hotel had problems in their facilities. The lobby was clean-the breakfast seemed scarce(but there is a breakfast joint not to far away). The subway was nearby but, as tourists, we had to transfer to get to most place, making it not very convenient. Our family of four(two almost frown kids) fit...

This place is handy to the Barbican and city. It is clean and had everything is needed, including a pull out rack over the bath for drying laundry and hangers that you can move - both bonuses if you are staying for a while and want to do hand washing. Tesco is close, Waitrose a wee bit further but an...

I was working in Cheapside so the location was perfect, a less than 10 minute walk. Also close the the Smithfield/Faringdon area where there are good restaurant options. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. This is an "apart'hotel" so that means that it is, basically, a hotel room with a kitchenette. I did find that it was...

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.
