Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Always on the Rails Poor attention of staff and slow check in
Reluctant to serve meal after 10.00pm when advertised as 10.30pm. Oblivious to me waiting at the bar until prompted and slow desk service. The rooms are OK and breakfast OK. Not a bad location for tube etc. but many staff really let the hotel down.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Anonymous11 Clean room and comfortable stay, but staff needs to be re-trained.
The positive rating is given for the clean hotel room, comfortable bed and pillow.
Professionalism and basic customer service knowledge of check-out desk employees need to be checked and re-trained. The employee literally stopped IN THE MIDDLE of her sentence while helping me with check-out, walked away from the desk to help the other customer (who just walked up without lining up) before completing my check-out! I think this is BASIC customer facing competency, unless the other customer has an emergency situation, she should have told the later customer that she will be with him/her right after helping the current customer - Not leaving the desk in the middle of an unfinished sentence to help the next!

El baño tiene una MUY MALA iluminación.
Hay ruidos en la habitación, probablemente dl aire acondicionado, que molestan bastante. De resto, el hotel esta bien aunque un poco caro para las instalaciones.

For few days stay for business it is practical and the needs for communication with family is adequate.

Was looking for a reasonably priced hotel close to the nightlife of Shoreditch and Hoxton. Holiday Inn Express was perfect. Standard of room was better than other Holiday Inn Express hotels I have experienced recently, although breakfast choice was limited.

In general my stay at the hotel was good. The room was nice with breakfast included in the price. But having lived in another hotel in the area of the same standard on previous visits, which cost considerably less for the same amount of nights, I would have to say that my preference would probably be the other hotel. Solely based on value for money.

Had the misfortune to stay here for 2 nights at the same time as a party of 40 people on the floor below me who were holding competitions as to who had he loudest voice well into the early hours. Complained to reception but nothing done about it. Won't be staying there again.

Have stayed here 2 months ago and now again but airco is still not fixed. Very disturbing during the night because of crazy and loud noises it makes.
Breakfast options is poor and coffee is bad.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nm367 Great value for money in the city
Took the kids to London for a short trip rather than make the commute each day as we wanted to see a number of museums, Buckingham Palace and the usual sight-seeing stuff. We were very happy with the cost of our stay at HIE -Old Street which was cheaper than most but did not mean that we had to put up with dirty sub-standard accommodation and we had the bonus of not having the additional expense of breakfast every day. Yes breakfast was busy and fairly basic but plentiful and more than expected for the price paid. Staff were friendly and courteous and the room was spotless - which is important to us. It was fairly small but the sofa was set up as a double bed for the kids so this took up a lot of available space, and at the end of the day it is a budget hotel in London. There were enough tv channels to keep the kids happy in the morning and tea/coffee facilities and a hairdryer kept Mum happy. A thermostat meant we controlled the temp of the room which is always good as I often find hotel rooms over-heated and stuffy. The shower was good and had a shower gel dispenser if you needed it and there was a plentiful supply of fluffy towels and even different pillows to suit your requirements. I thought this hotel provided great value for money and if you don't, you need to pay more or stop whinging!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lolyahoo Cleanest room ever, good service, friendly starff, bad mattress.
Room small but comfortable. Once sofa-bed was open there's no room to use the desk. There's TV and in-room tea/coffee making facilities. Cleanest hotel room we've ever slept in but mattress was a back breaker. I heard other residents complain at reception, even though I didn't, but it seems a common complaint. Staff helpful and will look after you well. There's an ok free wi-fi. There's a paid option for higher speed internet (expensive) but the free one was good enough to stream youtube. Good breakfast although could be a bit more varied. Very near Old Street tube station, just a couple minutes walk. All in all a positive stay. Will use again in future but will complain next time if mattresses are not upgraded.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by alurn Unexpectedly good!
After our sad experience with HIE in Cologne, Germany, this was quite a nice stay! After we changed our room (broken AC and TV) we had a very pleasant stay at our room at the rear of the hotel. Breakfast is simple, but tasty and for free!
The staff was very courteous.

A/C was broken or so and VERY noisy during night, also after changing to an other room.
Room pretty comfortable
location is quiet good.
breakfast is poor, and due to messy guests (lots of students) the floor was mostly covered in breakfast bits and pieces...
very friendly staff.

Overall not impressed, air conditioning was sometimes noisey and permanently on which left you with a runny nose, the shaving sockets didn't work and the breakfast/dining room felt like a school dining hall. Also, the hotel didn't seem to be staffed in the restaurant section at night which left you believing the only way to get dinner was to go out for it. The bar was way too close to the lobby which made sitting at it unrelaxing. Needless to say there are better choices for the same if not less money. I stayed in room 109 so if you get this room make sure the above has been fixed !

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by IGM EDI Good location and great service
As stated above, but the one disappointment was the lack of inter-room noise insulation. In the early hours of the morning the youngsters in room adjacent to ours were making such a din, that we were wakened up and had to call reception. To the credit of the staff their response was immediate and very effective!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kamme1903 London visit - 2 adult and one 11 year
This is NOT a five star hotel !!!! It is a nice place, nothing fancy but clean and cosy.
Close to the sub, nice area (don't eat at the Nelson retreat !!), we had a room on 5th floor backside and wasn't bothered by noise.
Staff was service minded and even though we had a "odd" reservation is was handled without any problems.
The bed was fairly ok, but not the best quality (to be expected in this level though). The "extra-bed" (couch) was very bad (only real disappointment we could find).
Good breakfast, just wonder why bacon wasn't part of this ?? A bit crowded some mornings due to some large groups of youths - might remove 2-3 tables in the middle for more space between, just to avoid "accidents" when people moving around with breakfast and coffee (which was excellent according to my wife) - but off cause it will mean loss of seats.
We had a very nice stay and expect to come again :0)
