Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by EE2012 Excellent location but a noisy room
The hotel is amazingly well located, a couple of metro stations from London highlights, but in a nice, calm environment. The personnel welcomed us in a warm and personal style and the room is well furnish and kind of comfortable. The three big issues we found were:
* The windows do not close properly, so at night is very noisy, making almost impossible to sleep well.
* The breakfast was poor, with low quality fruits (apples and pearls green and in bad condition). The feeling was of having a poor breakfast.
* The lift is VERY slow.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sunderland79 fantastic stay very welcoming
I had a really great stay at this hotel. The rooms are comfortable, warm and quiet. In addition the staff are probably the friendliest in London and really go the extra mile to make sure your stay is a pleasant one. Well done to Saachin the manager and his team!

Usual express experience, rooms a little small but usual standard of fixtures and bathroom just less room to walk around.
Breakfast could be better, don't expect too much from an express anyway but cereal selection and coffee could be better.
Typically hotels heating is set to sauna level, rooms at front are right on road so can be noisey with windows open.
Overall, typical express experience very good value for London

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by TvH1 Poor Cleanliness
The (bath-)room were nor really in a state of cleanliness I would expect them to be.
Also the (very small) window did not lock as it was broken.
Staff were of a friendliness as you would expect them, but nothing beyond that.
My expectations were low, but were undercut by the experience.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by elainecomtec Really appreciate a smoking room
We really appreciated a room that we could smoke in and it was very clean. Great spot, pimlico quiet nice and the local pub and bar very friendly, nice and close to the underground, Breakfast a bit of a shambles, cramped, untidy, not appetising the second morning I decided to forget anything remotely english and decided to go continental guess what no cheese!! I would have preferred a no breakfast option and would have gone to a cafe. But nice coffee!!

I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough, it's cheap, in a great location and the staff are nothing short of brilliant. Any potential problems I had they sorted out super quick with no hassle. (like the fact I had booked two rooms instead of one) the room was great considering what we paid for it , with a double bed and a sofa bed all set up for us. Iv stayed in many hotels in London and this really is great value for money if your on a budget. Thanks for a great stay holiday inn.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by travellor21 disgusting breakfast and inadequate room
really disappointed with this hotel as stayed at several Holiday Inns before and expected a certain standard but this hotel was well below that. the hotel needs updating throughout. our room was small and dingy and extremely hot. i complained to reception about the heat and they were very unhelpful. so much so that we didn't stay there for the second night, we found alternative accommodation. the breakfast was inedible and cheap - even the coffe was like tar. the breakfast room was dirty and stunk of smoke and the 'waitress' was carrying her cigarette pack in her hand whilst restocking the breakfast. really disappointed for the amount we paid - will think twice before chossing holiday inn again and would not recommend this hotel. we had booked to come away for a special occasion and it well and truely spoilt this.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Gordon Two Nights in London
Having used the Holiday Inn Express brand before we booked this one with some confidence and liked the close proximity to Victoria Railway Station and Pimlico Tube Station. Check-in was very friendly and quick. The room was a little small for our taste and was a bit tired in terms of decor, but acceptable. We had requested a quiet room and ours was at the rear of the hotel, so maybe that is why it was one of the smaller ones. It was warm and a bit stuffy and air-conditioning would have been nice but a fan was adequate this time. Breakfast was good with a large selection of items in a bright basement room. We enjoyed 30 minutes of WiFi per person each day which was adequate, although I do not think this service should be an expensive extra if more time is required. I would definitely consider this hotel again for a future visit but would appreciate a bit more space next time.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by gareth1 Comfortable and central
A good central London hotel in quiet area. Rooms adequate and breakfast okay but not great. We arrived in the hot weather and without air conditioning our room was unbearably hot. Otherwise a good average hotel okay for a no frills break.
PS Directions are to walk from Victoria which is a mile away, Pimlico is 50yards away!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bikebloke102 Room too hot
Found the room to be stiflingly hot, It wasn't particularly hot outside (the whole floor seemed the same). All they had was a fan that just blew hot air around no ari con. To add insult to injury the window wouldn't close so heard all the noise from the street. As its on a busy London road the noise was constant all night. Thanks to the room conditions and the noise from outside (buses running through the night) was unable to get an sleep.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SRE3 Room Comfort
Although the overall experience at the hotel was good, the big let down was no Air Con in the bedrooms, they really do need this upgrade soner rather than later. Small electric fans in the room just circulated hot air, good try but not good enough.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Gary40 Very good location, but poor value for money
This hotel is ideally located, but does not represent value for money. My room was particularly small and very poorly ventilated. In order to attempt a good nights sleep I had no choice but to open the window which then exposed the room to the considerable noise from the main road below. The pillows are always disappointing in the Holiday Inn Express Hotels. The hotel website informs guests that irons and ironing boards are available, but the iron and board provided were of extremely poor quality; making it almost impossible to successfully iron business suits and shirts. The front desk staff were reasonably friendly, but the staff in the breakfast room completely ignored guests. Having stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Hammersmith just a week before staying at this establishment, I can say without doubt that the two hotel experiences were entirely without comparison and that whilst I would not hesitate to recommend the Hammersmith establishment, I would neither recommend nor stay in the Victoria hotel again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by hh73 good location and great service
This a great place to stay while we visited London, It was close to many of the attractions and easy access to the underground and hop-on and hop-off bus. There were many places to eat within a 5-6 block radius. When we got ready to leave, we only had a short walk to Victory Coach Station to catch our bus that took us to Southhampton and our cruise ship. They have great service and I recommend this Holiday Inn Express to others. I would stay there again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by touristyjock Not the Usual Standard of HI hotels
On a city break location great 5 min walk to underground/20 min walk to Westminster, room as expected clean and normal HI fittings etc,Hotel badly let down by standard of breakfast, hot was warm cherry tomatoes&sausages, on 2nd morning Saturday arrived at 09:45 virtually nothing left although breakfast was available until 10:30, asked for replenishment of dishes told not possible, left with toast and coffee, At least 8 other parties arrived after me to the same sub standard breakfast,never experienced this at any other HI chain, wrote email of complaint with no satisfactory outcome. As you are paying top dollar for London I felt let down by HI on this occasion.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nick79 Pleasantly suprised
A big terraced house converted to a Holiday Inn Express - such a pleasant change from the normal faceless modern new build HIE's.
Clean and tidy nice staff and breakfast but smaller room sizes to the modern version - but most London hotels suffer from this
If you are there over Saturday night and Sunday the street parking can be free - check the signs though
Will use it again

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by kdominicis glad I used priority points to pay
Our first room smelled of cat urine. We immediately went back down for another room. Thankfully they had one and gave it to us promptly. Rooms are small, but normal for Europe I'm told. Breakfast was a bit crowded and not relaxing at all. had a nice selection including fresh fruit which was nice. Overall it was ok if you don't plan to spend a lot of time in the room which we didn't. It was a few blocks to the Victoria train station so that was handy. We took the train to the airport, much less than a cab would have been.
