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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

We had a lovely room, very clean, two comfy beds with a great bathroom but the best thing for us was the customer service. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, they printed out some tickets for us that we had forgotten to take, they gave us travel information and they arranged to send back my husbands glasses which...

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.
