Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BashyBoop One of the better Holiday Inn's that I've stayed in
Our welcome could have been better... the girl on the desk wasn't rude, but not friendly either! She did however change our room to a double room rather than a twin, when she saw that we were a couple, which was great.
The room was large, clean and comfortable. There were no noises to keep us awake and the bed was comfortable.
We didn't use the bar.... but it was still open at 2.20am when we returned to our room, with quite a lot of people using it, so this is good if you like to have a drink!
The breakfast was my main let down really... there wasn't a lot of choice of fruit or cooked breakfast.
Check out was pleasant, although we weren't told when we left that we needed a token to leave the car park, even though the member of staff had just done the transaction with is for paying for our car park use. This meant that my husband had to leave the car at the barrier to go back inside and get a token, which was annoying!
Overall, this is one of the best Holiday Inn's I have stayed in and if I was in the area, I wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
As I side note, while we were staying here, we visited The Narrow Restaurant, which is only a short walk away... the food was lovely here and it overlooks the Thames. I would recommend a visit here too if you have the time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Parkers A good comfortable place to stay
This hotel is good value and comfortable. Staff very helpful, room good size and everything works. Decor and furnishings probably above average. The free breakfast is very good. We we're very lucky having arrived at 10am the staff were kind enough to let us check in straight away. If I needed to be in this part of London wod stay here again.

The hotel is in a great location, only minutes away from the DLR station. The reception staff were friendly and very helpful. The room was as expected -quiet, clean, comfortable bed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dmon59 Good Value Hotel with Car Parking
Enjoyed a short stay at this hotel, when visiting the sights of London. Area is not very glamorous, but you are only sleeping there. Transport links to city centre worked well using DLR/Tube about 30mins ( lots of walking). Will definately use again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Floop Very Pleasant Stay
As a first-time visitor to London from the States, I found the staff very helpful, going out of their way to help me settle in and find my way around. The room was quiet and comfortable and the location was good -- a bit east of downtown, but near transportation. I will strongly consider staying here again the next time I have the opportunity to visit London.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tonythetelephoneman A little tired and drab
Had a good rate on my room and the location was good for my trip. However, couldn't get the Wi-Fi to work which was quite inconvenient and whilst I don't expect to hear a pin drop in Central London, being right next door to a cement depot was neither aesthetic nor peaceful!
I'd have thought this should have been made clear on their website. The place was fine but not for more than a short one night stay.
Also - not so well connected to transport links.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GoCliff Becoming a regular...
This is the third or fourth time of using this hotel and is perfect for one or two night stays. Staff are friendly, the breakfast is basic but good quality (why no bacon) ? The wifi (free) usually works fine.
Main benefit for us is the reasonably priced car park just outside the congestion zone and the 5 min walk to Limehouse DLR station.
The only issue this time was the musty smell in the room/bed. As we only reported it on check-out they didn't have an opportunity to offer us a different room so they get the benefit of the the doubt and we assume it will be OK next time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PITS2 Great Value for London
Holiday Inn Limehouse is a great value for those traveling to London. They have clean comfortable rooms, free breakfast and internet and a friendly efficient staff. Although it is located near a busy highway and cement factory, my room (in the back) was quite quiet. Breakfast choices are a bit limited and the internet at times really lagged but both overall were acceptable. I had a problem with my bill at check-out and it took some time to resolve but the staff did finally take care of it. I would highly recommend this property.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Drucie somewhere to crash after a party
Arrived after 7pm on a Saturday night, check in was quick, however, i did think that i had paid on line at the time of booking but was assured by the reception staff that the rooms had not yet been paid for so paid at check in. Rooms were fine, basic but quiet and comfortable. The shower is one of the best I've come across in a hotel. Went to the bar before heading to a party in the West End but was disappointed that the hotel didn't have any vodka. Got back to the hotel about 4am and crashed out in the very comfortable bed. Didn't make breakfast so can't comment. Upon checking out about 11.30 i was again asked to pay for the room, the male receptionist was insistant that we hadn't yet paid but i refused to hand over my card as i explain i had paid upon arrival. The receptionist glanced at his papers and said, ok don't worry, but didn't apologise for being incorrect. Not the sort of impression you want to leave a hotel with.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Emjc Nice hotel
Had a pleasant stay, room was clean and tidy and had plenty of facilities in there. Had to borrow the iron and board unfortunately it did get hot enough even on highest setting so my husbands shirt didn't look to good. We found that there were a lot of children playing with the lifts so being on the higher levels we found we couldn't get down to ground floor without having to stop at every floor for nobody to be waiting to use it. Took a while to check out waited for ten minutes before being seen as both members of staff had a string of people and there didn't seem to be anyone else to assist. Other than that easy to get to tube station great views from higher levels of canary wharf the shard, gherkin and O2 arena and Olympic statue. Would use again

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Saintsmum Excelent Value
We stayed here for 2 nights to visit the sights in London but had used the pre-booked non-refundable option. The staff were very helpful, recommending local restaurants [La Figa just across the road was lovely]. After reading other reports, I e-mailed ahead requesting a room at the rear of the hotel, which was honoured. The room was compact with tea/coffee facilities, clean bedding, clean bathroom, air conditioning, etc. The power shower was nice and liked the Dove shower/hair shampoo!! Breakfast was sufficient with cereals, croissants, sausages, scrambled egg, backed bean, yoghurt, fruit and of course hot drinks. The hotel is close to the Docklands Light Railway and is 2 stops from Tower Hill where the Tower of London and other sights are.
Would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to visit London with an affordable price tag.

Room was OK, but a bit small when we opened the sofa bed for our daughter. Room became humid overnight because they shut off the AC.

Location: 1.6 miles (25-30 minute walk) from Tower Bridge.
Hotel on a very busy street, but rooms were quiet nevertheless.
Everything clean, very friendly staff.
We were travelling with bicycles and staff was very accomodating in helping us lock them inside overnight.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by manred Pleasant and Good
I only stayed here for one night so may be a little difficult to give an accurate description. I thought this hotel was very good. The location was great. The DLR railway was literally a 5 minute walk if that. Also there were plenty of shops around to buy snacks and also get a bite to eat. It took 2 stops to get to the underground. I wanted to get to Westminster so all in all it only took 20 minutes from catching the DLR to Westminster which was absolutely fantastic. So the location is brilliant. The hotel was clean and the staff were friendly. I felt the receptionists were very friendly and were always there to help. I stayed in a family room for 3 people which I felt was a little too small for children. That was the only downside. The beds were clean and so were the bathroom which is important. There were plenty of fresh towels and other toiletries. It was basically simple and clean, which I was expecting. In the morning there were newspapers to read in the breakfast areas and a fairly good choices of breakfast from cereals, croissants, juices, tea, coffee, beans, eggs and sausages. That's it. I would recommend this hotel and I would definitely stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AKfisher1178 Comfortable room, but not huge. Very quiet rooms.
Room was comfortable for the price. The location was great and easily accessible from the DLR. we made several easy trips into London to see the sites. Nice touch having a bar to be able to grab a nightcap. La figa was an awesome Italian restaurant in the neighborhood.

The stay was without problems and the price was good.
The location is not in the center but the dockland light train at 5 minutes walking and the river Thames also at 5 minutes walking. Canary Wharf at 10 minutes and the Tower of London at 15 minutes.
Some good restaurants at 10 minutes walking along Narrow street a historic street near the Thames.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Colyton Not a great experience
Room facilities were only average and for the amount we paid not good value at all. The bed was on the small size at 4ft 6 and not very comfortable.
The breakfast was comprised of very low quality ingredients and poorly presented. How you can provide a cooked breakfast with no bacon, no fried eggs and non-meat sausages is beyond me. Also there were long queues for the food and if you missed anything first time round you had to go to the back of the queue and start again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JeanC Would recommend this hotel
The room was very good, clean and a brilliant powerful shower. I requested a room at the back based on other reviews which were right, the main road out front is very busy at all times and noisy, the room at the back was quiet. The staff were all helpful and friendly at all times. The breakfast was a bit limited, same thing everyday and we stopped for 3 days so could have done with a bit more variety and on the last day the hot food ran out virtually but it wasn't the end of the world just a bit disappointing. We booked this hotel as it was outside the congestion zone and the parking was cheap. It was also easy and quick to get into central london and to the Olympic stadium. We didn't try any bars or restaurants nearby as we ate at canary wharf and near tower bridge but we did get a pizza late on saturday night from Basilico on commercial road and took it back to the hotel, the staff were really friendly and the food lovely, they even told me where i could get provisions just down the road. I would recommend this hotel for all the reasons above.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Outoftowner1 A warm welcome
Selected this hotel due to having visited others in the chain and needing somewhere close to East London attractions (Olympic stadium and Spitalfield market).
The hotel is easy to find, within 10 minutes stroll of tube station, although there is not much in the way of pubs, restaurants or shops in the vicinity. Really useful being on the DLR route as this is much more user friendly and pleasant than the underground. We were made to feel very welcome upon arrival, dropping off our cases to head offf out for the day and upon our return in the evening - the front desk quickly organised a taxi for us to head out in the evening. The room was quiet, clean and comfortable, the bathroom very clean with a good powerful shower.
The only criticism is that the dining room is effectively crammed into reception and so is not a pleasant environment, also all the food is on one counter, all in a row, which encourages people to queue for ages, even if they don't want to visit each option.

Good location to visit london without having to drive and go into the congestion charge.
The best and most memorable thing were the staff, they all went above and beyond what was expected.
The hotel is a carbon copy holiday inn express but the staff made this a hotel I'd prefer to use again.
Thanks guys, you helped make our weekend

The Hotel is fresh and comfortable, Staff were excellent and happy to deal with any requests. Helpful and knowledgeable and couldn't do enough.
Down side the air conditioning in the rooms didn't seem to want to change. but was a minor point on a pleasant stay.
Hotel is sited very close to the DLR station which means tourist and city London are within 5 minutes of this hotel.

Thank you to all the staff at Holiday Inn Limehouse London. From the moment we arrived we were treated in a friendly and welcoming manner. We received a quiet, cool room as requested and the room was always serviced to a high standard. Despite a busy breakfast room, staff were very efficient in keeping tables clear and breakfast bar well stocked.
Well done and thanks again. We hope to be back again soon!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rich6060 Good value hotel in London
Booked this hotel as I needed to be close enough to City airport yet close enough also to the city. this was somewhere in-between.
Overall the hotel is well maintained and a good HI express.
Price is excellent when you compare to its closer to London city hotels.
The lady on reception gave us a very nice quiet room at the back of the hotel,which i was pleased about as the road on the front is a main artery road into the City.
the only real downer is that there is no restaurant,so no evening meal selections. They do provide leaflets for take-aways, which is what we did and ate in the dining/bar area. unfortunately there are no napkins provided at all and the lady on reception couldn't find any for us so she advised us to go and get some toilet paper form the hotel public toilets.
Oh well, the Chinese take-away was good and quick in coming.
Good sleep, up early next morning, fast checkout and breakfast was just starting at 7, very good.

Arrived too early to check in but it was no problem for the staff to find us a room to get changed in as we were attending a wedding. Very helpful in giving us best directions to get to venue from the hotel.
Would recommend anyone to stay at this hotel. The reception staff are excellent and cannot do enough to help
