Well priced, standard sized room. Good aircon in room. Breakfast average - a bit slow to replenish hot food, but quite busy. Well located to get to 02 Arena.

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

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scot1980 Leisure stay at Limehouse
This is the 4th time i have stayed in Limehouse Holiday Inn.
Every time i have stayed here the staff have been very friendly, welcoming and the rooms have been fine for what is required. There is no fridge in the room but on several occasions the reception staff have let me put champagne in their fridge downstairs.
The location is reasonably central and I would definitely recommend this as a relaxing location for both business and leisure.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by spm73 A lovely stay
Stayed at the Limehouse for a couple of nights in May. The hotel was situated perfectly for our needs, and in a great location. Certainly would recommend La Figa restaurant, and also a walk along the Canal.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nonsense2013 To be avoided, if possible
I wouldn't recommend this Holiday Inn. The manager was quite abrasive on check in. The online invoice didn't match the amount I was charged on credit card. It was basically, "pay me now because I say so or get out" Obviously he knows you have no choice but to pay. It wasn't a pleasant position to be in.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rubina Close to ExCeL, quite far from the town centre
I stayed in the Holiday Inn Express Limehouse 3 nights due to a trade fair in ExCeL which I had to visit.
The distance from the ExCeL is the thing I most appreciated: 15 minutes DLR to reach the fair. On the other hand, to get to the city centre (Piccadilly Circus and so on) it takes quite more, aroung 30-40 minutes, but it's okay.
The hotel position is not that beautiful: it lies just on the Highway, but it's close to the DLR Limehouse station.
Breakfast was quite poor in my opinion: paying 7 € per day I would have expected something more, anyway I've seen worse.
I would come back to this hotel only if I had to visit another fair at ExCeL, otherwise I'd choose one closer to the city centre.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by UBYG GOOD LOCATION, CLOSE TO LONDON TOWER
Breakfast is ok but with no effort could be great, is a matter of options, if you are going to give peaches in syrup on day and the other day grapes in syrup, give both at the same time and give people the option of having what they want. Same as cheese with the swiss type and the yellow american type. A pice of jam or beacon will be very nice with the scranmble eggs, but never see either one.
A plus to have FIGA restaurant and The Narrow restaurant close to the Hotel.
Place a sign right beside the lift when the breakfast time is finished.
But let the people who came before the close breakfast time to finish eating breakfast even after the time expire, some people eat slow some others don't, give time to those who eat slow to choose what ever they need to finish their breakfast, do not take away everything away for the simple reason that the time is expired.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Murali1960 One of the most friendly staff ever experienced in international travel
It was the undisturbed nights, warm and friendly staff that took my happiness quotient higher. Its a clean and neat place, ideal for short stay. The location is good to reach several points in London and also close to office.
I Will come back again soon.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RegularIHG Service level on an Intercontinental
I never wrirte reviews as a busy businessman but today I will.
I have stayed at both Crowne Plaza's and this Holiday Inn express in London. The approach and level of service attempted by the Holiday Inn express is beyond experiences I have had at both Intercontinental and Crown Plaza.
Whilst the hotel quality is that of the segment. The service level and effort of staff and management is beyond the level expected at such a hotel.
Well done to the team.
I will stay again rather than go to Crowne Plaza :)

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lisa112211 Convenient
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.

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.

I like the hotel and the staff at check in were great. Overall I would stay again however, the breakfast was not up to much, far to many people queuing at one time, although this is understandable for a busy hotel. One thing that I found disappointing was the croissant I had was stale which put a downer on the Morning as they are my favourite.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Alray27 Good but could be better
A great location for visiting East london/canary wharf. Close to DLR.Quiet room off busy street.Bedroom a good size and warm. bed harder than used to,very upright head board and pillows not comfortable. nice settee better for reading or watching TV. No bath small room with shower. Breakfast had variety but could be better with more fresh fruit, bagles, waffles and porridge.
Free papers and bar for evening drinks was welcome.Tea and coffee in room but no biscuits.
Fresh flowers and music would give it more atmosphere. No recognition of my husband being a platinum priority club member.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MHH1 Excellent regular staff
As a regular here when I am visiting the East End of London I can't find fault with the service. Last check in faculty was excellent. Bonus points go to the hotel for including free wifi for Platinum members. I am fussy as to which elevation I sleep on and the hotel always makes sure to give me the rooms I want, hence being a regular here for over 5 years.

For safety and health reasons, not comfortable with front (highway) and ability for people to go to rooms unchecked by reception staff (though there are cctv cameras) as well as adjacent neighboring commercial businesses.
