Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by DUMom Modern Efficient Hotel near Queen Mary University
Our college son is completing his study abroad semester so Stratford's Holiday Inn Express was one train stop away from Mile End Station/Queen Mary University.
The Stratford HI Express is an easy 5 min walk to a major shopping mall and the Stratford train station with easy connections to London's major attractions. Felt very safe, day or night.
Staff was courteous and knowledgeable with directions and currency exchanges.
The hotel is typical European: sleek, efficient; rooms are contemporary decor with lovely, newly renovated baths with high end finishes. Rooms are compact but large enough for a small pull out sofa.
Breakfast was hot and plentiful with scrambled eggs, sausages, fresh croissants plus other standard morning fare. One male restaurant staff was so sweet, helping me with the coffee machine and dropped/broke a tray of coffee cups. It was an accident but he was so very apologetic. He made a lasting impression on me, going out of his was to help a patron.
By London standards, this hotel is an excellent value, and met our needs quite nicely, particularly for study abroad families visiting their children at Queen Mary.

Rated 4,0 out of 5,0 by Tigger2 Very good hotel, slightly further from station than expected but walkable with ease
Evening meal excellent but breakfast a bit disappointing. Sausages were not good quality and less variety than some of the HIE sites but acceptable for "free".
Room was comfortable size with free internet and allowed work with ease.

this was the 1st time staying in this part of London, it was the closest hotel for the o2 arena , at the time of booking we didn't realise that all rooms were shower facilities only, our room seemed to be a disabled friendly room with call alarm pull cords in all areas. we also had an adjoining door to the next room. overall the staff were really nice and polite and did offer us the chance of moving to another room .not sure we`d use a holiday inn express again as there`s not much choice for breakfast
