“Eureka!”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

I've been to London many times and my experience of hotels there has been a little hit and miss. No more!! I've found a real jewel in this hotel and will look no further in future. I stayed there with my adult grandson on the night of 23rd November 2013. The tone was set when we were greeted on arrival at Reception by the very friendly, helpful and charming Petra, who is a real asset to the hotel. We found the rooms to be of a good size, immaculately clean and very well-equipped with all that the weary traveller might require. The décor and furnishings were luxurious. The shower was great - very powerful and invigorating. We ate in the bar and found the food to be delicious and the service faultless. I can't comment on breakfast because the beds are so comfortable we both slept very soundly and didn't really have time to eat before checking out to make our way to the airport. (Next time I'll make sure to set a wake-up call!) Again, the young lady at reception at check-out was extremely helpful. This hotel is of a very high standard in an excellent location and the staff are fantastic. Highly recommended.

Stayed for two nights, had to move rooms as water not hot enough for a bath - lovely new room but still only luke warm water. Use of executive lounge was good with adequate supply of snacks & beverages. At breakfast on Monday had to ask for butter, was told there wasn't any so went to get some from the exuctive lounge then was brought some! On the whole staff very firendly.

Not only is this hotel recently refurbished--and very nicely--but the location is also excellent. We have stayed in London many times but never in this area, but you can be sure we be back and will stay in the Hilton London Islington. -- The hotel rooms are nicely decorated and of a good size, especially for London. There was adequate storage space in both the room and bathroom, the bed was very comfortable, and all the linens were of high quality. The room was quiet (3rd floor, away from the elevator) but had no view. The hotel's close proximity to more restaurants and cafes than you can imagine is a definite plus, and it is convenient to the Angel Underground station as well. The area felt safe to walk around, daytime and at night. We did try the hotel restaurant, both for drinks and for lunch. The prices for both were about what you would expect from a hotel restaurant.

I stayed here for 2 nights mainly because it is very close to my son's home. I was pleasantly surprised! Great décor throughout the hotel following a comprehensive re-furb. Modern but not too modern! Great bed and pillows with quality linen, nice towels, good quality toiletries (a few extra wouldn't have gone amiss - bottles a bit on the small side!), slippers and robes provided. Well stocked mini bar, plenty of tea / coffee supplied in the room, plus still and sparkling water. Iron and board provided. Very quiet room (at the back). Good TV and excellent working area with plenty of sockets etc. Good hairdryer (crucial!) I only ate breakfast (free of charge for Gold HHonors customers) which was excellent (buffet style as expected but eggs etc. cooked to order). Easy 3-4 minute walk to the tube station and straight into town. Good selection of bars and restaurants locally on the high street. Extremely helpful staff on reception, ordered a car and driver to take me into Kensington in the evening - excellent driver and a lot cheaper than a cab! Definitely stay again...in fact, already booked!

We were able to find this hotel on a Sunday night for under £100 including b/fast. This was an exceptionally good deal.
For that price, the hotel was great. Perfect location for where we needed to be. Rooms were clean and comfy.
I noticed tonight that the lowest price was approx. £440. That is ridiculous. I certainly wouldn't recommend this hotel for that price. But, for anything near the £100 mark, you're getting a good deal.
Great large telly, fabulous shower, very quiet. Wifi should be standard in all areas and not just the lobby.
We didn't have b/fast in the hotel as we had plans elsewhere, but we'd certainly stay again assuming we can get a similar rate.

I have stayed at this hotel many times. I have tried other Hiltons, but this is my favorite for location. However, I have found it looking tired and needed a refresh. They have gone in and redone all the rooms and corridors and I am impressed by the new decor and the comfortable beds. Certainly on a par with american hotels with a modern comfortable look. Full marks to Hilton. Happy to go back on future trips.
