Great hotel in London.

This hotel was part of our second trip to London. From all of our European vacation this year, this was the best hotel experience we had. The hotel is located about 7 min. walking distance from the subway station and it is located in a busy, business ruled neighborhood. The staff was very friendly and professional. Heathrow Airport is located about 15 stations (2 different lines), which is takes about an hour. Bottom line: this hotel is a great value, is you are a simple individual looking to, well, look around London than this hotel will do great.

Hilton London, Islington

Staff was very helpful. Room was cleaned on a daily basis. Clean towels and bed made up everyday during my nine day stay. Very close to tube station. Able to access all modes of transportation. Many places to eat close to hotel.

Great location, great value

Four of us booked a suite at this hotel on a 33% off offer, believing that the price would make up for any slight discomfort we might have with lack of space. In fact, we were pleasantly surprised - two spacious rooms with two comfortable rollaway beds and a king sized bed, with still plenty of room for four women and their many belongings! I was slightly concerned on seeing I'd been allocated a smoking room when we requested non-smoking (via a sign on the room's door) but again, I needed not to worry - the room was as fresh and clean as I could have expected. They had also remembered to leave sufficient tea, coffee, biscuits and towels for four - which you would hope for, but could easily be overlooked, so all round, even better value than we thought. At around five minutes walk from the centre of Angel, with dozens of shops, bars and restaurants, the location was excellent too. The only downside was the slightly terse and cold service from the reception staff, but as I don't generally rely on hotel staff for anything other than to hand over a room key this really wasn't a problem.

If you like Mexican food, check out Desperado's restaurant - turn right onto Upper Street and it's on the left hand side about five minutes away. Delicious food, great atmosphere and excellent value. For breakfast, try the many cafes in Chapel Market - a full breakfast for less than £5!

Lovely Location!

The hotel is clean, modern, and has a very attentive staff (we even got a free bottle of wine sent to our room upon arrival!) But the best part is its location near the Angel Stop on the Northern Line of the Underground, which is a much less crowded stop than nearby King's Cross. It's also right near a busy thoroughfare with cabs and buses, but without the noise, and there are lots of restaurants, pubs, and shops within a few blocks. Can't recommend it enough! I'd go back in an instant.

Sloppy

Disappointing for a Club Room at a Hiton Hotel in Central London. Several light bulbs did not work; were never replaced over 4 day stay. Floor lamp unplugged and not anywhere near an outlet it could be plugged into. Cleanliness was perfunctory. Bathroom lighting was terrible. Internet and printer in lobby did not work--took 30 minutes and 3 people to print a simple boarding pass-and then they wanted to charge me for it.

Very nice staff and location.

Check in was quick and easy. Room was always clean, gave us free bottle on wine.(very nice) My daughter and I were visiting my younger daughter who is living and going to school in London. She lives about a 15 min walk from the hotel. Security was visible. Close to shopping, Starbucks and movie theather and restaurants. Lost power one night, called down and was taken care of immediately. Only problem they did not receive payment from the company I used to purchase flight and hotel. They did not charge my card for the balance, checked with there booking dept and sent me Email before I even got on plane to tell me it was taken care of. I brought wrong plugs they had ones to lend you. Very surprised.

London in a whirl

We were visiting our daughter for 4 days only and were looking for a conveniently located, clean, quiet hotel within a budget. We found the Hotel London islington fit our needs very well. it is very convenient to buses and trains. Excellent taxi/car service. Very friendly staff. Our ONLY frustration was the lack of free internet. It might be a U.K. thing or a hotel policy but there wasn't even a hotel lobby computer for guest use. I was told they are working on reversing the policy. Plenty of great pubs and restaurants near by, as well as the very affordable dining specials at the hotel. We would not hesitate to stay there again ONE CAUTION: Even though the trip was a prepaid flight and hotel, we were required to give credit card at check-in. After I arrived home I had to call the hotel and remind them to remove the initial 'deposit' fee. They did so, but be sure to check this policy.

Fabulous location; Hotel So-So

The neighborhood of Islington is a fantastic place to stay; Great local vibe, restaurants and pubs without touristy prices and people. The hotel could have been better, however. Our first room had a broken toilet and it took much begging and pleading (over an hour, in fact) to get moved to a new room...or rather, downgraded to a smaller, older room. All in all, it was a decent value...we got what we paid for. But I probably won't stay here again.
