Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HOLEY Pleasant stay
We travel to London several times a year for the weekend, mainly to see a West End show and always shop around months in advance for the best value hotel.
This was one of the more pricey hotels we have stayed in but we were quite happy with what we got for our money.
We had had a bit of a mishap with our booking which ended up with us having a standard room and our daughters who were arriving the following day just for one night having an executive room.However, on explaining this to the receptionist we were upgraded to an executive room ourselves for the weekend which we were delighted about.
The room was spacious and clean and the mars bar, apple and bottled water which come with the executive room, although a bit of a bizarre choice, were appreciated
I misread the offer though and was disappointed to find that breakfast is only included automatically with a Holiday Inn Express and so hadn't been paid for in advance, consequently making the rooms not as good value as we had thought. I believe the breakfast was around £16 so we didn't bother and ate breakfast elsewhere.
The hotel is very convenient for the tube and it is a pleasant easy 30 minute walk to Covent Garden..There is also a small Waitrose, Tesco and Sainsburys all within a couple of minutes walk from the hotel.

The best location - great local village feel within central London and very close to the Tube.
Gym is a commercial operation across the street which means it is a large and well equipped operation - probably better than having one in house.
Rooms are a little tired but the team and location make up for it.

Excellent location and superb hotel. Only gripe is the shower it trickles out and dont really get any decent flow of water.
But overall would highly recommend this hotel. Near the Russell square underground, plenty of parking and very clean.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Athina57 Great location, very close to Russell Sqare station,very friendly staff.
The hotel was very clean, 3 minutes walk to tube station ( Russell Sqare). The firtst room we got was very small and no wi-fi. The stuff in the reception was very friendly, so the next day they gave us a very nice big dooble room. They also told us to sign up for IHG Reward Membershipcard , so the internet was free and fast.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bob Roberts very musty, cramped, dingy and overpriced
This hotel did not meet the Holiday Inn international standard, was musty, cramped room, dingy furnishings, poor room quality, and really expensive for such a poor quality
Staff were nice and helpful however -- but often not many of them around with many visitors to assist

Visiting London for theatre and site seeing, good location for tube connections. Room ready despite early arrival, receptionist very welcoming. Good breakfasts and very helpful staff at dinner. Overall a pleasant stay at a reasonable price

I stayed for one night but the hotel was clean and well presented. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the hotel itself is very well situated. My room was clean, the bed was very comfortable and all of the facilities one would expect were available. The room was hot and the aircon was very noisy but this was only a slight blip in an otherwise good stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tam77braz Very comfortable and great value hotel
Me and my husband stayed for one night only but would, without a doubt, return to this hotel when we next visit London. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The room, although on the small side, was immaculately clean. The bed was extremely comfortable! We had free wifi. Breakfast was delicious with so much choice. Do not have a single negative thing to say. Thank you to all the staff at Holiday Inn Bloomsbury.!!
