A few friends and I stayed at this hotel on New Year's Day. I found that staff were polite and helpful, it is easy to commute from and very comfortable. We were not happy with being woken up in the morning as we had late check outs booked, but overlooking that it was a great stay.

This is a hotel is a very convenient place to stay while in London. Accessible to work and to leisure activities. I frequently recommend this to colleagues and friends.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by upandeya Did not meet expectations
I stayed here with my family, so there were 3 of us in the room. We wanted to stay in the East London area close to Tower Hill and this seemed to be the best option on hotels.com. My review of this hotel has been written keeping in mind that this is an economy brand and unlikely to have 5 star amenities or services.
I visited this place between 24th-27th Dec 2013.
* Conveniently located close to the Limohouse DLR station (5 minute walk). Walking distance from Tower Hill (20-30 minutes).
* They had a family room, which was convenient for 3 adults.
* The room was really small and cramped. Since there is a sofa bed for the 3rd person, there is no room to even walk around once the bed is out.
* There was a musky smell in the room, like it had not been aired for some time. We had to open the windows to make it better.
* There is no wardrobe, just a small area to hang a few clothes.
* Except for changing towels, there was no housekeeping service on the 25th and 26th of Dec. This is unacceptable for a hotel brand like Holiday Inn, even if it is a bank holiday. If they have a holiday on the 25th, they need to make arrangements for the 26th. The room was not cleaned, garbage bin was not cleared, tea/coffee cups were not cleaned/replaced and the beds were not made in 2 days. In such case, they should also charge accordingly!! Xmas rates should be slashed by half!! Poor value for money.
* The breakfast is sparse and not the best tasting, not even fresh. There were cereals, scrambled eggs, sausages and croissants. The sausages were tasteless and the croissants were not fresh.
Overall, I would not visit this hotel again. I am sure there are better hotels in the same price range in the vicinity.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dorc and family Noisy building-- can't sleep---Low quality beds
Noises on various floors. We moved rooms daily but still experienced noises, so could not sleep well.
Beds are not that comfy despite moving from room to room.
Breakfast is boring and is the same daily.
Staff are the best part. Cleaniliness is also good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by S Lim Good clean room and convenient to DLR
Was in London for a short winter vacation and wanted an inexpensive good clean hotel for a few nights. The Holiday Inn Limehouse fits my needs to a tee. The morning breakfast included was a good spread with hot food choices (eggs, sausages and baked beans).
The only slightly unpleasant incident was when my room card key would not open the room door on the 3rd day of my stay. I went down to tell the reception of the problem, and instead of just replacing my key card, he spent a couple of minutes lecturing me how to use the key card. Obviously, he was not aware that I am a Gold IHG member and been to numerous IHG hotels. There were other guests at the reception, including the other reception manager, and they were were staring at him, as his tone sounded irritable.

Overall experience is good. Nice location and easy to commute. But need improvement in breakfast menu. Its the same menu I have had for 23 days.
Also need some more variety of dishes.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kirstea5678 Clean hotel and good service. But.....
.....it was a terrible nights sleep and the room was very hot even with the thermostat switched off!
There was a loud vibration reverberating in the room, all night. We worked out, in the morning, it was caused by a cement works right next door to the hotel. Also the pillows were too flat.
The plus points were: Clean, brilliant shower, good free breakfast and nice to have tea and offer making facilities.

I enjoyed my stay at the Limehouse Holiday Inn Express. It is easy to get to / from the Limehouse DLR station. The DLR has good connections into central London. It really is a 5 minute walk from the station to the hotel. The breakfast was a no fuss affair with a good choice. The hotel was clean, quiet with a well stocked bar for that drink on arrival.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, a slight mix up when we arrived and found ourselves given someone else's room, but the staff were very apologetic and sorted us another room. Would defiantly stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by marcar212 good comfort at reasonable price!
Good spot for a weekend trip, good for families,
close to the DLR, just 2 stops to the center!
Clean rooms, comfortable beds, English breakfast - the choice was a bit better in the Holiday Inn Park Royal last year.
But really ok for a reasonable price in London!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DFH7 Friendly staff, excellent wifi connectivity, attention to detail
Loved everything about my stay; staff were very friendly, rooms very clean and there seemed to be real attention to detail on the whole.
Didn't LOVE the bed and pillows, but I'm spoilt at home with a memory foam mattress. Also would've liked a choice of vegan food choices on the breakfast menu (non dairy margarine etc), we basically couldn't eat anything.
That aside though, price was very good for what was a trouble free stay with very friendly and helpful staff.

Great hotel close to DLR, room was perfect clean and well looked after, all any visitor to London could want. Staff were pleasant and eager to help. Breakfast was great a real bonus , the hotel was full but the staff made sure everything was there for the breakfast.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by laotsu8 Clean and comfortable friendly and efficient service
Was impressed by the friendliness and efficiency of the service on the Reception desk. The room was pleasant, comfortable and clean. The breakfast could have been better if there had been more choice. There was only sliced bread for example so better bread and/or some crispbreads would be an improvement. Didn't have cooked breakfast so can't comment on it.

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.

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.

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.
