Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reierson Very well maintained and comfortable
This is the crown jewel of London. My room was very comfortable, the staff was friendly and accommodating. I was not a fan of the fridge that charged if you moved any of the items but a quick call fixed the erroneous charges. The hotel is close to the subway/train and there are many Taxis to take you places. Great property and the barber next door is great.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Davo87 Very Good Hotel
I enjoyed a very nice at the Holiday Inn after my work Christmas Party, due to the function I was attending I arrived back at the hotel late but felt very secure with the fact that I had to swipe my room card on the entrance and to get in the lift. Reception staff were helpful and would always greet me as I walked past them.
The room was nice and had everything I needed including hair dryer, iron and ironing board. Water pressure was a bit low in the shower but not to the extent that it was unusable.
In the morning because I did not get back until late I went to breakfast at 10.15 - there was a very good selection but the restaurant was a little untidy (tables not cleared from other guests who had already left) and the food not that hot for £10.00 but it was better than the local McDonalds or Subway by a very long way.
I would regardless of the small gripe above recommend this hotel and would stay here myself again when in the area due to its close proximity to amenities and the DLR to the underground.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Doctorpete Stylish, friendly staff and good value, but poor room design
I enjoyed a recent business stay at the Holiday Inn Commercial Road, but there were a number of annoying design problems with my room that prevented my stay from being a really good experience. The wash basin was so shallow it was almost impossible to have a shave. Shaving problems were exacerbated by very dim lighting in the bathroom (indeed the whole bedroom was very dimly lit). So I went off to work looking slightly less immaculate than I intended! The air conditioning was also problematic. Despite me turning it off, the room was cold and the air conditioner seemed to come on of its own accord in the middle of the night, with a quiet but irritating rattle that was just loud enough to wake me up.
Otherwise, it was good value.
