We found our short stay at this hotel to be very enjoyable . It is situated only a few minutes from Oxford Street , and a relatively short distance from marble Arch and the American Embassy . The staff were all very friendly and were very knowledgable and informative .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dreyfuss Convenient & Clean
We stayed for 4 Nights.
It was a good stay and location is convenient.
However, the wardrobe area needs to be brighter - only light is from toilet. Those taking the Tube do remember to alight at Bond Street Station instead of Oxford Circus.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shastajohn A great hotel, with superior service
My family and I spent the Easter holiday week at the London Oxford Circus hotel and had a wonderful time. The hotel is ideally located and the room (with two big double beds) was great. What really distinguishes this property, however, is the superior service. From the manager, to the clerks, to the bellmen, to the maids, they all went out of their way to be helpful. I contacted them a couple of weeks before arrival to ask for help booking a day trip to Stonehenge; done. I asked for an extra chair and pillows on arrival; immediate satisfaction. I needed a vase for flowers (we celebrated an anniversary and some birthdays); there was a knock on my door within minutes. It was bitterly cold during our visit, so having friendly faces and a comfortable-boarding-on-cozy room waiting for us after each outing was especially welcome!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gritch Great Location and service
If visiting London I would certainly recommend this hotel.The Staff were so pleasant and helpful.They acknowledged that I was a Priority Club Member, however i noticed that they were pleasant ,polite and helpful to other non Priority CluB members who were checking in The location is excellent, so central,the underground is also nearby.and the hotel so close to Oxford Streey,
There is minimal noise in the the streets outside.
It was a pleasure to come back to the Hotel and chill out in the bar area and also the bedroom which was spacious by London standards.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LeonS Great service
Stayed at several Holiday Inns now. Staff here were excellent, room was well maintained and quiet, nice bathroom, aircon/ temperature control worked well. Location is great, 2 mins from Bond Street Tube. Lots of bars and restaurants for all budgets nearby, which is as well, as the restaurant, in all honesty, was not great at all. Limp, would be my kindest description.
WIFI charges are extortionate (£10+ per 12 period, NOT per 12 hour use!!) - but plenty of places offering free wifi in the neighbourhood - another reason to skip the bar and restaurant.
Overall, good hotel & staff, avoid the bar & restaurant - there are great places, far cheaper nearby anyway

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Erkin awful hotel
Only good thing I can say would be location for this hotel. The breakfast was horribly disgusting, even including the juice they had tasted like a glass of water added 5 spoons of sugar. Sausages, eggs, croissants, even the muffin. We were told by reservations team member that parking would be 20 pounds per day at a nearby parking but found out that we were misinformed as we had to pay over 60 pounds for a day and few hours. Staff were very weird people. Would rather an ordinary B&B over this place, totally not in other Holiday Inn hotels' standard.
Decided to stay at the other branch on regents park during next visit to London and it was absolutely opposite of this hotel. Very pleasant, nice breakfast, kind staff - generally value for price. Would recommend to choose the one at Regents Park as it's thousand times better in all aspects.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rosie34 A gem of a hotel with friendly efficient service
I booked this hotel in London on a whim, fairly last minute, and was delighted to find it was better than I had expected. Apart from the bonus of a very central, yet quiet location, the staff on reception were not only quick and efficient but helpful and understanding. Here I would mention in particular James. The room was very clean, bright,well equipped and comfortable. Apart from once hearing voices from the adjoining room indicating the walls could do with a little more sound insulation, our overall impression was very favourable. Food at breakfast was plentiful, fresh and varied and service was friendly and quick. The hotel was just right for our purpose. We will definitely use this hotel again and have already recommended it to friends.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Superfoodiemadrid Needs renovating as in poor condition
The family room was a wreck and need of a thorough remodelling, painting and the bathroom upgrading and better suppying. It was tiny. Just space for one person. The cleaner entered 3 times without knocking and at very inconvenient times.
My parents however had room for people with disabilities was excellent and equipped to a far superior standard.
Breakfast was excellent, staff helpful and location ideal

I stayed her a couple of years ago and did not like my stay at all, the hotel was shabby and the staff offhand.
A lovely change this time my room was improved although some changes could still be made the carpet and curtains were very dull and the pale green paint boring but the breakfast was good and the staff were very helpfull and cheerful and the whole atmosphere was welcoming.

No acoustic comfort whatsoever. My ground floor room was located above Jubilee underground line with passing trains causing unacceptable groundborne noise levels. No noise insulation from the corridor doors, with gaps enough to hear every word, shout and step of passing people, arriving until very late on Saturday night. Music from a nearby (underground) nightclub causing tremendous pounding sound.
Heating radiator was turned on maximum setting with broken valve. Temperature was boiling hot until porter came to switch the heating completely off.
Shower pressure very good.

The Holiday Inn Oxford Circus is located in a very accessible area to sites, shopping, Underground stops, food, and pubs! The hotel is in the posh West End and we could truly walk to most sites very easily. It is an older hotel, but very clean and comforable. Truly a charm.

Myself and my mum had two nights here for my 40th, and I have to say what a clean and friendly environment ! The staff were very helpful and friendly, the bar was not as expensive as I thought it would be, Trish that works in the bar makes you feel you have known her for a while lovely lady. It was a very short walk to Oxford street for shopping. I will be recommending this Holiday Inn to friends and family, Brilliant, see you all next year!
Thanks from Karen x

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nin44 Good location for shopping/ restaurants
We stayed for 2 nights in this Hotel - This Hotel was a good location for a quick visit to London shopping with local restaurants on hand within walking distance. Piccadilly was a good 15 minutes walk - taxi to Piccadilly around £8.00. 5 minutes walk to shops literally the hotel is at the back of Debenhams on Oxford street and near Selfridges. The Hotel is clean and staff are pleasant. Only downside our room was at the back of the hotel that had a heating chimney working all night so noisy - went out the next day to get earplugs from boots.

Room temperature was very difficult to control.
And noisy extractor in bathroom ran continually.
As a hotel in the centre of London I would expect far more quality from Holiday Inn.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jtraveler7777 Awful staff, go ANYWHERE else
Embarrassingly poor service. Concierge is a bellhop, NOT a concierge. Staff is terrible. Unfriendly with no knowledge of area, service or customer comfort. As a Priority Club Platinum member, I trust the brand. This experience questions my membership and loyalty.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RossMacs Disappointment - not even worthy of one star.
I have stayed in many Holiday Inn premises around the world, including Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express in UK, Europe and USA.
I am sorry to say that this particular site was the worst one I have ever experienced. Made worse by the fact that I/we were celebrating my wife's birthday and Valentines day.
We spent only limited time in the hotel due to the fact that the appearance from the first moment you arrive is that of a tired, shabby, poorly maintained building that was not welcoming. The first impression we got was before we even entered the building - one of the front steps was broken and a yellow 'danger wet surface' cone had been placed on it to cover it up.
The paintwork in the hotel was terrible - pretty much every door frame and skirting board had large pieces of paint chipped out. Not just isolated pieces but many marks all around the doors. The doors themselves were appalling - some it seemed had been 'repaired' at some time and had poorly disguised patches on them. We walked down the stair case on one occasion rather than take the lift and I noticed that even the widow frames were rotten.
I am a Platinum Priority Club member, which gives you some idea of how often I stay in hotels. The room I had with my wife was an upgrade to a 'Queen Suite'. This room had recently been refurbished we were told. However the level of workmanship was poor - none of the plug sockets were level, the kettle didn't work properly, the skirting board was covered in paint splashes, the skirting board below the bath panel had parts on it where there was no paint, the door into the en suite was poorly fitted and maintained. You couldn't even flush the loo without the toilet seat falling down. These are all signs of a poorly maintained/managed hotel. When we arrived in our room a maintenance man was replacing the filter in the A/C unit, using the chair as his ladder!
This suite, according to the tariff board was normally charged at something over £500 per night. It was obvious that the walls had recently been painted, but in comparison to other Holiday Inn rooms we have stayed in it was tiny and did not warrant the price tag. Fortunately I was able to use Priority Club Points, which I feel have been wasted on this stay and would like to have them all reimbursed. Not too sure who, if anybody at Holiday Inn will read this but I would like them to contact me. We stayed in a room on floor 5, 12.02.13 to 14.02.13 inclusive and my name is McMaster.
When we checked out we made our feelings clear to the checkout staff - I asked if they were due a major refurb and was told they were but we were in the best part of the hotel! Frankly, the refurb can't come quick enough and it has to be major.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sarries Perfect location
Location was perfect for us with only the tube being a 2 min walk away.Hotel tuck away from main street noise, but again a short walk to the Oxford st shops and resuraunts.
Hotel clean and modern with our room a good size.
Did not eat or drink at hotel so cannot review this but staff very helpful and friendly.Would for sure come back for another stay.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Michelar Unacceptable experience
To start with, as a platinium card holder, I wasn't satisfied with my stay at your hotel.
I didn't get the facilities I usually get in your hotels (upgrade, internet, breakfast, ...).
The restaurant was smelling during breakfast, staff unprofessional and not up to the standards.
In conclusion, the service I got wans't worth the fees I paid.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pompey Staff and service
I have stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions and the staff have always been very professional and the service provided has always been great.
On my last visit there were two minor issues
1. The heating radiator in the room that I was given was not working correctly and a temporary electrically operated oil radiator was provided. This radiator did not provide sufficient heat and the room was very cold.
2. I asked for a 'Sun' newspaper for the morning. The standard free papers were delivered to each room before 7 am. I asked where my paper was and was infromed that it would not be delivered until 8 am. This is too late in the day for guests who are in London working.

Thank you for a lovely stay. It was our Ruby Wedding Anniversay and you gave us a very comfortable and cosy room on a very cold weekend. Thank you so much for the lovely bottle of wine to celebrate our special occasion. Staff were friendly and helpful and we will come back. The location is excellent, close to Oxford Street for shopping and St Christophers Place, one of my favourite London areas.
