Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gro44 Perfect for family holliday
The room was big enough for 4 people, it was clean and the bathroom was very nice. We could make our own coffee/tea in the room.
The staff was friendly and very helpful.
The hotel is located near Old Street station, ca 3 minutes walk.
There is an elevator, and free breakfast.
We will use the same hotel next time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 enjoyable stay
This was a good stay at one of the HI Express hotels. Thanks to Jakob for a welcoming reception and being responsive to my room requests. Rooms are clean and comfortable, also quiet (I had a room at the back, upper floor). Good value package.
Breakfast was a bit of a scrum as seems to be the norm for HI Express but when this is open to all as 'free' then I suppose you can expect that. Food is limited in range but perfectly adequate.
Early check out was a little let down by the receptionist who seemed to be having a bad day so felt like you had been summoned to the headmaster's office, not sure why. Will likely stay again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by crazy_lou Lovely room, bathroom and breakfast
The room was very comfortable and the bathroom nice. Hand and body wash was provided but no hair conditioner. The breakfast was continental with a good variety of food and drink. Would have been nice to have had an extra half an hour or so to enjoy this.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Canadianflyer Comfortable bed and great service.
Overall good experience for the price.
Breakfast buffet could use a few more fruit choices, but if you are an eggs and bacon kind of person it will be fine.
Room was very clean, remember to bring most of your own amenities as hair conditioner and moisture lotion are not provided. Shower gel and hand soap were.
If traveling from abroad bring your own electric adapter as the hotel has a very limited supply. 8 pounds at the vending machine is quite steep a price to pay.
If taking the red eye and expecting to arrive early keep in mind there may be an issue with an early check in.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Careem Excellent location, clean and comfortable rooms
I stayed at Holiday Inn Express during my trip to London from June 30 to July 3rd 2014. Holiday Inn Express is clean and extremely comfortable with excellent location - closer to the old street station; restaurants; grocery stores. On top of all the hotel provides excellent complimentary breakfast and free internet. I would definitely like to stay at Holiday Inn Express again during my next trip!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Efi Tourist Guide Good location
Located in a convienient central point near the subway station. Comfortable bed, well-designed room, clean bathroom, quite good breakfast, friendly staff.
The only problem we faced is that the are no electricity adaptors available at the reception for the common European pluggs, not even for a small fee rental.
They are just on sale, which is quite unusual for a hotel of this category, especially if one counts on finding an adaptor, as it happens in most hotels.
The price was a bot high for us, but all London hotels are like that anyway, even the really bad ones!

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.
