Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MaureenfromNY Great room for the price
I was a little concerned about staying on the East end of London and not in Central London, but then I read that the East end was becoming more popular as it expanded and decided to try it and I'm glad I did.
I was very pleased with the hotel. The price was good, the hotel was very clean and comfortable. Well located around the block from the DLR which brings you to the tube and is in zone 2 so you don't pay extra for the DLR. It was 2 stops to the tower bridge tube stop.
I was with my 2 children and not all hotels have accomodations for 3 people in a room, so we were limited, but it worked out great. The bed was comfortable, and they had a nice size pull out bed that my daughter slept on. It was crowded to pass the end of her bed when it was open, but we didn't spend much time in the room, and we could have closed the bed back into a loveseat if we wanted.
We took cabs at night to get back the hotel, they ranged from 7 to 22 pounds depending on where we were, which was fine since I saved a great deal not staying in central London.

Conveniently located only about 3 blocks from the train so that was great! The hotel also had a bar which my roomies and I enjoyed, along with a complimentary breakfast. The sheets were clean, but a few old stains were seen, and a single hair on top of the sheet which wasn't awesome, but whatever.

Very clean and modern . . . . ' does what it says on the tin', so to speak.
Stayed at Holiday Inn Express a number of times and I do wish they would improve the breakfast quality. I would be happy to pay a bit more for some decent and tasty bacon and sausage. OK for the vegies toast and yoghurts.
Our room was on the top floor and we were clearly just beneath what was probably a heating or air conditioning unit which 'hummed' all night and didn't exactly help us have a quiet nights sleep.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by VPOG Friendly and quiet. Ideal for our needs
Stayed here as it is close to my son. Exterior is not great but it belies an attractive interior, very friendly and helpful staff and an excellent room which was clean and quiet and well equipped, and a first class breakfast in the morning. Check in and out was a breeze
Hard to fault given our requirements.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by marieismad great value hotel
Lovley hotel, easily accessible to DLR. Clean. Great range of food. Bedroom was good standard.
I was surprised though that it said in the bathroom to leave towels on the rack if we didn't want them changing - so we did - and tehy were still changed. We didn't want them changing after only 1 use. What a waste. Why mention about being environmentally friendly and not following it?
Also why provide decaf coffee but not decaf tea? I am a tea drinker but prefer decaf but I didn't have the choice.
Other than these 2 minor things there was no problem. We had asked for a travel cot and one was provided with more bedding than needed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bove Very nice stay at this decent hotel
Pleasant and friendly staff, nice room, good price and a good breakfast included. We enjoyed our stay very much and our experience was enhanced due to the room being available to us 2 hours earlier than official check in time.
We arrived 2 hours earlier than check in time with a view to leaving our car in the car park and looking around london before coming back later on to check in the room. This wasn't necessary as the room was ready for us when we arrived and we were allowed to check in early which was very convenient for us.
The price was very reasonable and we booked a family room for 3 adults which included a double bed and fully pulled out and made up sofa bed which was the equivalent size of a double bed. It wasn't the most comfortable of beds but i expected this as sofa beds often are not. It was not a problem as it was adequately comfortable enough.
The parking price was well below the average for other hotels in London being charged at £10 per 24 hours whereas many others are £20 + for the same period. Overall very happy with this hotel and our stay here, the limehouse DLR station was a short 5 minute walk from the hotel and easy to find.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Inneke Very close to London city - excellent for citytrips
We stayed 4 nights in Holiday Inn Limehouse and staff was very friendly. There was not a great variety of Breakfast. Room was OK. Shame it is located on a very busy road.
