My family of 2 adults and 2 children found the hotel to be very good indeed. The room was clean, fresh & accommodated a family nicely. The location was quiet and reasonably accesible from the tube. I would recommend this hotel, & would certainly stay there again. However I was surprised to find that the use of the pool (one...

I stayed 1 night here, great location as I traveled by eurostar train from Paris. Staff mostly friendly. Room was clean and comfortable. I felt safe. Area is nice. I liked the decoration. There is no complementary coffee or tea which wasnt good to me, London is cold these day, that would have highlighted my visit :) highly recommended.

When I booked The Crowne Plaza, King's Cross, I did so as part of a theatre deal and thought I had selected the closest and best value for money to the theatre we were going to. It turned out to be 25mins by bus or 15 mins by car/taxi or even longer dependent on traffic. Sadly, I can't walk very...

Until very recently this was a Holiday Inn but has been upgraded and refurbished to become a Crowne Plaza. It is a big improvement, very smart and very clean. The bedroom I had was immaculately clean and fresh. I didn't have breakfast as I was attending a breakfast meeting, so can't comment on the food.

We arrived late from the airport, very tired and had it not been for our driver we would still be sitting on the kerbside.

Lovely comfortable rooms,clean & tidy. 2 double beds in each family room we had. Considering the hotel was having refurbishment work done the disturbance was minimal.

Room very clean and spacious. We decided to use the pool, the water was disgusting, the lockers weren't working. I know the spa facilities are being upgraded but it should have been closed while this work was being carried out, to be charged £3.50 per person to use these ' facilities' was a joke. I would stay here again but...

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.
