Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by guest10 ridiculous price for a tiny room
we booked a family room (2 adults, 1 child), paid a ridiculous price and had a standard double room - in this special case a tiny one with no space at all.
If you want a nice holiday hotel, this is not the right one.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Nicky42 Worst 2 nights sleep My children and I have ever had!!
Fold out bed for the children had metal spokes pointing up into their backs. They ended up sleeping on the floor!!!! The room was right beside the staircase and could hear people up and down all night. Was absolutely exhausted in the day. Dreadful nights sleep for all of us!!!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fruchtzwerg Comfortable hotel with good service
The hotel and the rooms are very comfortable and clean. The staff is also very friendly and always willing to help immediately. The hotel is located near to the tube station and you are able to reach all important sightseeing events within a zone 1 ticket. The breakfast is of course English but as there are different kinds of breads, rolls, cereals, cheese, marmelade etc. plus scrambled eggs, sausages and baked beans, everyone will be able to find something they like. We enjoyed our stay very much!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kris28 Decent Hotel, Good for Cost
The hotel was in a decent location in terms of access to tourist sights. Using public transportation was a breeze. The overall neighborhood is up and coming so maybe in about 5 years it will be better. There are lot of food options but I wouldn't eat most of them. I never felt unsafe, but you can definitely tell its a developing neighborhood.
The hotel itself was very pleasant, lovely staff. Clean and worth every every penny.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CyprusWally Good- but nwith a few reservations
Overall I was impressed. Comfortable quiet hotel, reasonably priced for such a good central location, with attentive and friendly staff. Excellent breakfast. When the dining room was packed, staff worked hard to keep the food coming and the tables cleared as soon as anyone was finished. It was very clean. The free WiFi was a nice touch. The bedroom was fine, with choice of pillows and a lovely shower.
Now my "buts"- 3 thi9ngs went wrong whilst I was there, none of them serious, but together enough to stop me giving a 5* rating.
1) One day no new towels were provided. Luckily there was one left, so I managed OK
2) On my last day, the TV did not work
3) On my last day the lifts were out of order and I had to manhandle my suitcase down 3 floors.
None of these were major problems and I would be happy to recommend the hotel to others

Very good central location with a very nice, clean room. Perfect for our family of four on a recent city break, and good value for money.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HKlj Good overall but dreadful sofa bed
Good overall but the sofa bed that our two children slept on was awful with no support meaning that overnight both of them kept rolling into each other.
We informed the night manager the following day and he said all he could do was to put a duvet under the mattress and that it would be sorted asap.
We returned to the hotel at 5.30 pm to find nothing had been done so we complained again. It took ages for a maid to come to the room with a spare duvet, she handed it to me and I had to do all the work myself. This made the problem worse.
We were told that nothing could be done and that the management at the hotel did not have the authority to do anything else, this would mean our childre would have another sleepless night. or have to sleep on the floor.
Eventually we persuaded them to let us have another room so that the kids could sleep on a proper bed.. This all wasted alot of time and put a bit of a downer on the stay.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by LMYY good room but poor service
the room and facility is standard for Holiday Inn, clean but a bit small. The check in staff doesn't speak good English and wasn't that friendly. We stayed there for three nights and the staff were not friendly and sometimes reluctant to help. Definitely need to improve the customer service to make clients feel more welcome!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cooky82 Very Good Hotel
We are a french family (parents and 2 boys aged 15) and we decided to spend a holiday in London from august 8th to 13th, 2013. We chose the Holiday Inn Express London City for two reasons : good quality/price for a family room and its location.
* Positive points :
- Even if they have more than 200 rooms to manage, the staff was very nice, to welcome us and each time we asked a question.
- The hotel is very well located : bus stop in front of the entrance, underground 300 meters and there is a little supermarket on the other side of the road (open 7/7 and until 11pm).
. Old street is a busy street but it is not a problem because the soundproofing is very efficient (you can't hear nor the street noise neither your "neighbours").
- The hotel is very clean. The breakfast buffet was varied.
* Just two negative points :
- Our children had to sleep in a sofa bed very uncomfortable. It would be better to have two real beds in family rooms.
- We missed some place for our 4 suitcases.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by loopylinda Lighting poor for makeup
The mirrors in the room were very good, especially the full length one. The only snag was not one mirror had good lighting near them. The one over the sink was not too bad, but as I have poor eyesight I could not get close enough to see.
I put my make up on and had to wait until outside the room for my husband to tell me if I looked like a panda. I went into the ladies in reception and toned it down with tissues.
My husband was disappointed he could not get free wi-fi in the room.
We ran out of milk and tea bags as neither of us are coffee drinkers.
reception was very helpful and gave us extra on request.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Andyboy City trip
Chose this hotel because of its proximity to the City and various points of interest in the area. Good food outlets available within walking distance, Bus and Tube links good. The reception staff were excellent and efficient, The breakfast staff were very pleasant and as attentive as they could be, given the hectic nature of the morning breakfast rush. Would visit again if in the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CP8012 Good location, attentive staff
Comfortable rooms in a good location for access to the Tube. Only issue during my recent stays have been the huge volume of very noisy family groups. Staff are excellent, attentive & friendly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Heather2 Cant fault it
Stayed for 3 nights at the beginning of August when I took my mother to London for her birthday and we were absolutely delighted with the place. The beds were comfortable, the room was spotless, the staff were so helpful and even though we were at the front of the hotel, we never heard a sound from outside, the double glazing was so good. The breakfast was substantial and the tube station was only 5 minutes walk away. Next time we go to London we shall certainly be looking to stay here again.
Room Tip: If you are a smoker, they have a floor of dedicated smoking rooms.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shand Great location
Stayed for 2 nights in the hotel. The location is very central, close to central London and within a few hundred yards of the tube station. Stayed in a family room and the double bed was very comfortable but the sofa bed was not brilliant. The bedding and towels were lovely and white and the room was spotlessly clean. The breakfast was good although very busy with queues but then it was the middle of the summer holidays.
Would definitely stay in this hotel again next time we visit London.

After a long day in London, the warmth of the reception staff ended the day on a high. with a young family the staff ensured that we had crockery and cutlery to eat a meal bought outside the hotel without even asking. The rooms were clean and at a high standard. Check in and check out were fast smooth and efficient.
In particular a sterling effort was provided by Cxxn.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Lucy80 Good staff
The staff were excellent.
Room seemed good but at night was very noisy with a strange noise like pipes banging.
Complained at 1am as couldn't sleep and got moved to another room and got a complementary late check out.
Breakfast was a bit bad. No bits came out together so had to eat beans first then grabbed a sausage when they came out then waited for egg to come out so didn't eat it all together in one go a lot of getting up and down.
Old street tube stop not in operation either so had to walk further.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dasteini citynahes sauberes Hotel
sehr freundliches und hilfsbereites personal, problemloses einchecken,
zimmer etwas klein, kein schrank, schönes bad, alles sauber und korrekt hergerichtet, betten etwas weich, die aufbettung ziemlich durchgelegen, aber nach order einer 2.decke als "unterbett" war alles gut- wir waren auch nur zum schlafen und duschen im zimmer, dafür völlig ausreichend,
frühstück war ganz okay, typisch english breakfast- nix für feinschmecker und zum längeren verweilen- halt express frühstück...
hotel liegt sehr günstig, ca. 150 meter von der tube entfernt, 2 stationen und man ist am drehkreuz kingscross,
vor dem hotel ist kleiner supermarkt, wo es alles für den touritag gab
einziges manko: kein kostenloses internet- sehr schade,
aber es gibt ja starbucks
würden das hotel aber für unseren nächsten londontrip wieder buchen und empfehlen es weiter

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Family03 Our family chose to return here.
Our family stayed here two years ago and when we knew we would be returning to London we were happy to return to this hotel. The rooms are newly renovated, clean and very comfortable. The restaurant staff were very helpful in the mornings when we needed to find gluten-free options. Our only suggestions for improvement is to solve the banging hallway doors near the lift. (The banging was very clear first thing in the morning).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by eltogue nice hotel, good location
We spent 3 nights at the Holliday Inn. It was quiet, we got the requested room to the back (the road is not so busy there). Nice staff. During our stay one of the elevators was out of Service, so we walked the three levels to our room and got some exercise (the other Elevator was always quite busy). That could have been better. The hotel is really close to Old Street Underground Station. Everything was clean.

The hotel room was spacious and clean. A really nice bathroom for a 'budget' hotel.
Great aircon...this was one of the hotest weekends in London so far this year.
Very close to tube so great access to the rest of London..only 2 tube stops from euston.
Only negative was the breakfast - really busy and hectic, which meant waiting for cups etc one morning.

We had a great start to our holiday in London, with our young kids. This hotel gave us the comfort and reassurance that we needed after a long train ride; to kick start great week. The room was comfortable and the staff very informative, about getting about London.

Very clean room, except for tobacco smell (I am a non smoker). Comfortable bed. No noise problem. The air conditioning did not work, and it was very hot in the room. The weather is not usually hot in London but this time it was. The hotel was very convenient for our purposes. Ugly bar area, Good, rapid service at reception desk. Expensive.
