Hilton London Islington
Travel Blogs from London
So today I had to make up for not seeing much of London the day before, since I was leaving tonight for Berlin. And I was very busy.
My main reason for coming to London was the British Museum, but they didn't open until 10 am. Nearby, however, was the British Library, which opened at 9:30 am. It was only one tube stop from my hotel, so I …
Nothing much to report for today. I had a bad headache so I stayed in the hotel room most of the day. And unfortunately there was construction going on right outside the window, with continuous jackhammers or something. So that didn't help much. It was pretty noisy, even through earplugs.
I eventually managed to make it out in the evening …
Ahhh fantastic to have a cab driver that has knowledge. Found out cab drivers in London in order to be a sanctioned driver and not a mini-cab...you have to go through a type of college and take an exam. It consists of learning every hotel, museum, restaurant etc in the city and know the direct route to it! Not only that but the history behind all …
Hey all. Well we had quite a busy day yesterday. We were up and out the door by nine and headed down for breakfast in an English pub. Then off to Green Park were it really looked like central park in New York. They have beach chairs set out for people to just sit. Then off to Buckingham Palace where we just happened upon the changing of the guards …
We are finally checked into our hotel. We have done some sight seeing. Paul and I went to Leichester Square and Liz and Mikhala went shopping and played in the park close to the hotel. We all had lunch together at a restaurant close to the hotel. After all that traveling..we are tired. Speaking of tired., we have discovered new things about our …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton London Islington
The Hilton Islington is located in a courtyard just off the main high street in Islington. It is a modern hotel situated about a 2 minute walk past bars and restaurants from Angel tube station.
I stayed at the Hilton Islington for a weekend break. The hotel itself offers a great location for those who want access to all the main attractions as its only 2 minute walk to Angel Tube station which connects to Kings Cross and from there you can go anywhere!
The rooms were fairly basic, I've stayed in a lot of 4/5 star hotels and if its luxury your after then this isn't the best hotel. There's no mini bar or luxurious furnishings or leisure facilities that you may expect from the Hilton group. However for those just seeking a cheapish (its generally cheaper than the other Hiltons) then this is the hotel for you!
Just spent the week in london which is the greatest city in the World (during the attack) and wanted to share my experience at the islington hilton. After the attack, the hotel immediately locked down and checked everyone coming in which added to our comfort and safety.
Friendly welcome. Spacious clean room. All in good working order (bar the TV). Very comfortable relaxing stay. Pleasant breakfast. Convenient location.
We had a short break in this hotel last month, and found it suprisingly good value for money. Many hotels in London overcharge for poor quality rooms in noisy locations. This hotel had basic, but good sized functional bedrooms in a great area of London. Despite being in the heart of Islington, noise wasn't an issue either.
I stay here fairly frequently as it's close to my company's office at the Angel. Facilities here are quite good - modern decor, clean and most rooms are fairly spacious (note: there are some very ""pokey" ones but these tend to get allocated to latecomers so it's a good idea to check in early if poss). The executive level rooms are excellent - usually worth asking at check in. The staff try to be helpful although there does seem to be a fairly hgih turnover - noticeable for a frequent visitor.
Very satisfactory experience, on the high side of "above average". My partner and I stayed for two nights at New Year 2004-5 taking advantage of a special promotion: two nights B&B with dinner on the first night for GBP 179 including tax. We considered this a reasonably fair price overall and very inexpensive for a **** hotel in London.
Good location, ok rooms, confused staff, economical
Have stayed here twice. The normal rooms are just that, normal. No minibar, in case you were wondering. The staff is kind of a mess, they're nice but most of them don't speak English well, the lobby always seems a bit chaotic and you find yourself asking for things more than once. The location is good, Upper Street in Islington is a pretty hip area, good restaurants and bars. Can be a bit dodgy after hours. The hotel is very economical for London (where everything seems to cost an arm and a leg). I would recommend the hotel, but I wouldn't do somersaults for it.
Great Hotel. Stayed in Executive Level Suite. Plenty of room, definite upgraded amenities from Starbucks Coffee to luxery bath salts. Have stayed in 5 star accomodations in Jamaica, Beverly Hills ect.. and this is by far the best bathing experience --excluding whirlpools. Temperature and pressure control faucets ensure a customized bath. Breakfast included made to order omlettes or standard fare of sausage bacon and eggs. Many pastries, and wide variety of fruit available. If you stroll around the area, do be careful after hours as traveling a bit too far may result in entering an undesirable area. Otherwise located near Borders, Shopping areas and upscale bars/pubs. We took a day jaunt to Paris and the concierge was very helpful and ensured a relaxing getaway with firstclass accomodations on the Eurotrain and guided tour upon arrival to Paris. Longer trips are available, but as we were leaving for Amsterdam the next day, a day trip was just the thing.
