Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JonMort Probably best view from a HI Express anywhere
Fantastic location overlooking the Albert Dock. Views from bedroom overlooking the dock towards the Maritime Museum and Tate Liverpool. Views in same direction and out across the Mersey from the breakfast lounge. Our room had exposed brickwork ceiling and wall and beautiful window from the original warehouse.Great friendly staff and good price too. Would heartily recommend to anyone travelling to Liverpool.

The Holiday Inn Express, Albert Dock is conveniently located for several of Liverpool's museums, as well as being a short distance from Liverpool's main shopping, transport and theatre district.
We received a very warm, friendly welcome on check-in and this continued for the duration of our stay.
Our room was pleasant, comfortable and exceptionally clean, having most of the amenities you'd expect, although we could have made use of an ironing board if available, as we were celebrating a special occasion.
Breakfast was relaxing and informal with great views of the dock. There was plenty of choice from the hot and cold buffet, which we found to be of great value.
We would happily stay here again when visiting the area, and would also be very happy to recommend this accommodation.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tonyd55 Great hotel for a waterfront visit
Stayed one night for a visit to a show in the Echo Arena. They have done a great job of converting an historic old building into a modern hotel. Good location for the Arena and Liverpool Waterfront. Our room had a full length window view over the Albert Dock, which was nice to wake up to in the morning. The breakfast room was a little bit chaotic but not a big problem. Staff were efficient and friendly. Would stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by debbieno8 A strictly great stay
We recently stayed here whilst going to the echo arena to see strictly come dancing. A first plus was it was a smoking room for my mum as staying at other non named hotels meant sometimes standing in the street in our pyjamas. The beds were wonderfully comfortable, the room a great size and the bathrooms are nicely decorated. I liked the decor of the hotel, keeping in with what it possibly was in the past, old doors and brickwork still existing which was lovely to see. My only minus was the room was dreadfully cold. We had the heating up full and only really warmed up as we checked out the next day which made an uncomfortable nights sleep until I got warm under the quilt. But all in all great hotel, superb location, staff were friendly and cheerful and I will DEFINITELY stay here again

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Steph29 overall, clean, friendly and convenient
In fact, I only have 2 complaints:
1) The ironing set-up! I was in the hotel with my 2 primary school age kids. Normally in hotels, I'd iron in the room while they were asleep, but here, I had to bring them down several corridors to an 'ironing room' with a min-sized ironing board. Room was cold and bare and kids weren't happy.
2) The room was cold and there was only a wall heater which didn't generate enough heat.

I had a fantastic room, (427), it was dark outside when i arrived and from my window i could see the liverpool wheel lit up and the shimmering docks below, having enjoyed an amazing evening in Liverpool, where the people are so full of character and welcoming, i retired to bed, when i woke i made myself a cup of coffee, pulled my chair up to the window and enjoyed the daytime veiw, with its original brick walls and subtle lighting, wonderful veiws (also great views from the breakfast area) i would highly recomend it

Staff went out of their way to be helpful! Room view was lovely! Only slight downside is that breakfast was a long queue and the car park discount voucher didn't work. Apart from that a fantastic stay! All down to ace reception staff!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mark24 Great stay
We stayed on boxing night after a day shopping and eating. The hotel and staff were great. The only bad points being due to the bad weather, the window made a howling sound all night which was enough to wake you up and keep you awake. Also, be aware of the nightclubs nearby as there will be music playing till about 2am. This wasn't an issue for us as we were very tired but it could be an issue for other people.
Great location, 10minute stroll and you're at Liverpool one.
Free WiFi worked a treat!

Stayed overnight here December 2013 ideally located for the Echo arena and hotel directly onto the Albert Dock. Hotels room exceptly clean, well furnished and excellent breakfast. Although hotel does not have its own car park there is parking outside £15 for 24hrs or as I used the car park near the Echo arena which the hotel gives a discount of 25% so it cost £9.00 for 24hrs and was only a 2 min walk. i would definately recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

Used this hotel for a concert a the Echo Arena which is about 200 yards away. Really good hotel, ex warehouse so lots of brick and metal doors and rooms were very good. Breakfast is a bit basic but ok. Very good quick check-in process and nice staff. Shower is not a power shower if you are used to one but again adequate. Very comfy beds and very good value overall and I do like nice hotels!!

Amazing location beside albert dock- the beatles story- liverpool museum beautiful place for sight seeing , clean room but very narrow, very quite hotel , self service nobody to help with luggages, extremely slow customer service, the same breakfast everyday no variety , drinking water is not provided in the rooms we had to buy our own water in case we want to make cup of coffee in the room, when i asked customer service about how can we make coffee in the room they told me to use bathroom water as it is drinking water, or else get down to the bar to buy sparkling water they dont sell still water!!! Weird !!! I wanted more coffee and tea in my room - i called reception service, they told me to come down as it is self service!! The hotel service is extremely slow and self service, but the hotel location is very quite amazing fantastic .

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MAV32 Really fantastic, helpful staff, made our stay.
Our booking agent had made an error by booking us a smoking room for our stay. On arrival the staff were fantastic, they did everything they could and sorted us out a non-smoking room at the last minute. They were extremely friendly and provided excellent customer service with a smile.
Our room was clean and tidy, and had a lovely view of the Ferris wheel in Albert Dock's. It was well decorated and the room service was immaculate. Although the hotel services were basic the wifi service was more than adequate and the breakfast selection (free) was really great.
All in all, the hotel was excellently situated for the nearby conference venue and close to the town. Fit for purpose for our short conference visit. Only real downer was the parking, although a 25% discount for the local multi-story applied it still worked out quite expensive.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ray0151 well worth all of its 3 stars
Had a second floor no smoking room overlooking Albert Dock. Room was much larger than would normally be expected of a 3 star hotel. Room was comfortable,well furnished and warm. Had 2 excellent nights sleep with no noise either from outside or adjacent rooms. Only slight criticism was water pressure in the shower but all in all a very pleasant stay and would recommend.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Laura23705 High price for a basic hotel
This hotel was clean but very basic considering the money that we paid for a 1 night stay! Also didn't help that we had very 'noisy' people in the room next door so barely got any sleep at all!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by sandrah Great to party all night
Wonderful hotel wonderful location Don't stay here if you expect a good nights sleep.The bar is open at weekends till 4am We had been to see the stage show Mrs Browns Boys. We had a busy day scheduled next day so went to bed around midnight. Woken at 3.00am by giggling, shouting and doors banging Settled back down until 5.00am louder laughing and shouting, doors banging Oh no some of them were in the room next door Arghhh They obviously thought they were the only people in the hotel because the noise continued. I knocked the wall and the noise did stop for 5 mins then laughing and shouting started again. Finally rang reception who sent someone up to talk to them At last silence Managed about 3hrs sleep. Never Again. .

From the moment we arrived we loved this hotel. Better than 4 star hotels we have stayed in in the past.
Lovely staff, endless patience, I locked myself out not once but twice!
Room was wonderful,the stay was a birthday present for my sister and I had asked for a room with a nice view and we certainly got it.
Reasonable prices at the bar and a good hot breakfast.
We would stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bobthebuilder72 Excellent hotel
We stayed at this hotel to visit a show at the Echo Arena recently and all I can say is we were extremely pleased. We have stayed at other Holiday Inn Expresses as well as several competitors in the same price bracket but this hotel was far the best we have ever stayed in. The hotel is situated in a a renovated old building right on Albert Dock approximately 150 yards from the Echo Arena which is perfect for anybody looking for somewhere to stay when visiting the arena.
The hotel is immaculate right through and finished to a very high standard for a hotel in this price category. The rooms were very clean and my only gripe was the mattress was too soft for my liking.
We had a double room overlooking the Albert Dock and the big wheel on the Arena complex which was a nice view. The room itself was very spacious for a double with plenty of hanging space, a large flat screen TV providing the usual freeview channels. The bathroom was very clean and spacious and the shower was easily controlled not like other hotels where it is either scalding hot or freezing cold.
Breakfast was the usual self service buffet style and once again for IHG hotels there was no bacon. I cannot blame the hotel for this as I know it is IHG Group policy not to serve Bacon at breakfast in any of their holiday inn express hotels (After reading the number of comments on this hotel and other IHG hotels about the lack of bacon, it really is about time bacon was offered)
The staff were courteous, polite and attentive to all our needs and were very knowledgeable of the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 More than just the usual Holiday Inn
This hotel is MUCH better than the usual Holiday Inn. They have definitely hit on a bonus by using an old red brick warehouse and keeping that look instead of the usual steel/glass/concrete building. It is a lovely building in a lovely part of Liverpool and close enough to walk to Liverpool 1. The very friendly and approachable staff were great. We were going to see Mrs Brown at the Echo Arena, we couldn't have stayed closer!
The staff were great and friendly, the hotel looks new and is very clean. The view from our room was of the Arena and the Mersey.
This is a great hotel, if I ever need to stay in Liverpool again then this is where I'll be staying. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this hotel.
