                              The location-nothing else.

                              The room was very cold-the temperature control did not work. The bathroom was not clean.

                              Great hotel, close to Angel tube and only a 10 mn bus drive to piccadilly. Clean and comfortable, good service and kind staff.

                              Location

                              Upon arrival at the hotel, I checked in, gave credit card for payment and was then told that there may be some minor noise between limited hours during the day. Please note that this was a business trip and whilst not in meetings, I was hoping to continue writing a report within the comfort of my hotel room. I was shocked when the extent of the noise became evident. This was not minor noise, but rather the continuous racket of electrical drill/saws. Much of the time the noise appeared to be coming from directly above my room between the working hours of 9am-6pm. I am particularly disgusted on this occasion since I was given no prior warning of the noise at time of booking…..it all appears to be a deliberate scam to maintain a guest list whilst the hotel is being refurbished. You are the first point of contact regarding this, and I demand a full refund. There is simply no excuse for the lack of communication regarding this. It should be noted on the front page of the hotel website that there is severe noise during working hours of the day. Needless to say, I would of booked alternative accommodation if this had been the case.

                              The room was cold and we couldn't get the heating to work

                              The staff were extremely helpful and courteous. We had a very large room which was clean and comfortable, and also very quiet. Excellent location a short walk from Angel tube station.

                              Excellent location, friendly staff and lovely breakfast.

                              We arrived and then were told that alterations were taking place. There was alot of banging taking place so we were unable to sleep and the work started again soon after 9am. We complained and we were offered some wine and fruit and upgrade for our next visit so that was some compensation.

                              Great location in centre of all the shops/bars/restaurants in Islington, few mins from Angel tube station. One very friendly reception staff who remembered we were vegetarian and later in the stay checked if we had enough veggie options for breakfast. Brekky was great, good selection hot/buffet/continental.

                              Room was a little drab- could do with a make-over refurb. Had a bath/shower but wouldn't been nice to have stand alone power shower, that's just personal preference. Hair dryer in room was rubbish- only cold air very low so would take own if stayed again. Had a business feel rather than luxury hotel. Felt it was quite expensive but you pay for location.

                              Air-conditioner rattled and it was really cold when you got out of bed despite turning temp and fan up on noisy air-conditioner. Got in very late & left very early so didn't remember to report but suspect that it would be attended to.

                              Free wifi should be available not only in the hall but in the whole hotel. It would need more heating in the bathroom

                              Friendly staff.

                              There was a discrepancy between the amount we had been quoted by Booked.net and what the hotel wanted to charge and although this was sorted out after we left we understand that it will be some days before the excess money is returned to our acount. This shouldn't happen, it rather tarnished a birthday visit and we would be cautious about booking with Hilton in the future.

                              Very friendly and helpful staff...when I had a bad experience trying to call for room service (no fault of the staff I dealt with at all but a tech glitch on the phone or something, technical stuff) the guy who was in the reception for the night was more than willing to help me and kindly took my room service order :-). I asked for a reasonable upgrade and was surprised how massive the room I got was! I was alone in a 4 ppl bedroom! :-D.

                              The phone in my room had a technical glitch, when I pressed for room service to order some food I got a nasty reply on the other end, probably a glitch that made the phone call another guestroom and the person I spoke to there wasn't happy.
