Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dagse71 great service and perfect location
My family and I were visiting London for the first time ever and couldn`t have found a better place to stay. The room was perfect for the three of us and the staff did everything to help us and make us feel welcome! It was great, that on our first and last day we were able to leave our luggage there - that gave us a lot more time to explore and enjoy London. The location of the hotel ist perfect with Stratford Station so close and the bus stop right in front of the door.
We had a great vacation and the hotel was a big part of that!!

The only suggestion I could make is that for business users a cloths iron would be preferred over a hair dryer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PaulA1963 Quality hotel with very friendly and helpful staff
Stayed at the Holiday Inn Stratford last weekend as I took part in the Ride 100, and has very impressed with the way in which they where more than accommodating to mine as well as the other cyclists needs. Normally they open the breakfast buffet at 7:30am but as they realised we had to be up and out quite early, had the breakfast ready for 5am.
Rooms were very clean and all the staff I spoke with were exceptionally polite and friendly. Would definitely recommend and would stay again in the future.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by randomnamerequired Good stay
I stayed here with before a cycling event with 16,500 cyclists leaving the Olympic Park not all stayed in the hotel!) ... the staff were excellent, accommodating us all with good humour and the rooms very comfortable for a hotel in this price range. Breakfast was available early (5.00 am) and the room was full but - unsurprisingly - the bananas ran out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gizmodo Exceeded my expectations
After staying at many hotels I was expecting the Holiday Inn Express to be more toward the lower end of service levels - I was wrong. The staff were really helpful, there was all the conveniences you would expect of a much more expensive hotel and the breakfast was (self service) lovely.
I was pleasantly surprised at just how much they had to offer!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Maverick525 QUIET, COMFORTABLE, GREAT SERVICE AND VALUE FOR MONEY
Attended 'Join Us' concert at Queen Elizabeth Park one year on and needed accommodation close by for the night. Was so impressed that hotel situated on main road with room facing onto it, that it was 'silent' ... air con not unduly noisy. All the basic requirements plus cleanliness and top customer service. And note .... this was not one of their newer re-vamped rooms!!! Will definitely stay here again when accommodation needed for events being held at this park in the future.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KFlo Great base for events at Olympic park
Clean, friendly and comfortable hotel - good value for money and excellent for events hosted at the olympic park. We stayed for the wireless music festival 2013 - It was perfect as we avoided the crowds afterwards who were heading back to central London and walked to our hotel. The only downside - there is little choice in terms of eating out on evening - there was no where to eat other than one nearby restaurant and the hotel...A walk to the large shopping centre might offer more.
Great showers -which are usually my bug bear in hotels :-)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by milktruck169 London break
Stayed 2 nights at the Holiday Express Stratford High st
The hotel was easy to find close by at all amenities.
Tube stations 2 & 5 mins walk away bus's outside and a large shopping center as well.
We enjoyed our stay as we had a day in London touring and a shopping day in Stratford followed by a trip to the O2 arena for a Rod Stewart concert.
All in all everything was perfect.
Wasn't very impressed with the continental breakfast, Sausage beans and scrambled eggs............I don't do cereals or pastries so plenty of toast was on order.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Debbiedo3217 Ideal for 02 arena.
Staff very helpfull and friendly. Hotel clean and quiet. Breakfast good not fantastic but did the job. My friend and I both said we would stay here again if we were going to 02 arena , as is an ideal base. Only short walk from Stratford tube station and Westfield shopping centre.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sallyar60 Good room, great bathroom
A walk away from Westfield Shopping centre, modern and clean. This is a good base for a visit to London, close to the underground. Rooms were good size, clean with nice bathroom facilities, lovely big fluffy towels!! Would stay again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Stevwest Not worth the money
I stay in many hotels in the UK and I can say that this was the worst in a long time. The noise from the room next door that went on from 3pm to after 1am the next day was awful. I did not complain at the time because I have learnt that to do this only ends up with retaliation from the offenders. The cost of the room was exorbitant and I pay less to stay in good central London hotels with more comfortable rooms. I would not stay at a Holiday Inn again.

Hotel conveniently located nearby Stratford High Street station as well as nearby the Stratford main station. Hence convenient for those wanting to attend conferences at the Excel center near the docklands, and also conveniently near to City Airport. Downtown London is somewhat further away, but quite reachable from Stratford Main Station.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Maggi57 VERY GOOD
The Staff were courteous, helpful and friendly. Stayed here for one night after going to the Barbra Streisand concert at the O2, which was about 15 minutes from the hotel. A member of Staff arranged for a taxi for us.
Breakfast the next morning wasn't spectacular but more than adequate. Fresh fruit, cereals, cold meats & cheeses and hot sausages, scrambled eggs & baked beans. A good choice.
A good hotel for a quick stopover. Would recommend.

I am very happy with my stay at Holiday Inn express at Startford. Its very clean and right next to bust stop that takes you to central london. Very close to the Westfield mall and Stratford underground. The staff was very friendly and will definately come back here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Helend Comfortable bed and very efficient
Had a lovely one night stay, very comfortable bed, nice and clean and quiet. Staff were efficient and friendly, only gripe would be the breakfast, there wasn't really a great deal of choice, would like a bit more choice next time. Due to go to the 02 in October, will definitely stay at the Holiday Inn Express again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by roxor Good Hotel
I travel to london often and I have tried couple of Holiday Inn hotels including Express hotels.
I was satisfied with this hotel but my first impression was little bit confusing.
After first couple of minutes after my check in, receptionist told me that I will not get free wifi internet as I am used to get in Holiday Inn Limehouse (I was sure that this is standard care for Priority Club members). I was not gold member at that time, probably this was the reason, but Holiday Inn Expres in Limehouse - my previous hotel doesn't care about level of your membership and you get full high quality service when you are the member including welcome drink!.
Fortunately after short discussion, when I mentioned that my next stays in London are going to be in another hotel with wifi, Stratford staff was quickly decided to give me free internet.
Breakfast are little bit better from other Express hotels. Hotel is also near to DLR.
After this, I decided to keep my bookings in this hotel. I hope that it won't be a mistake.

We had a nice comfortable stay at this hotel.. The rooms were clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. They have had new beds in all rooms and the choice of hard or soft pillow is a small but subtle touch. My only little gripe is breakfast. The thought of waking up to a cooked breakfast is appealing however... no bacon, tomatoes, mushrooms ? The chef was helpful in that you can have as many sausages as he can cook..it just took the edge off of the stay. But still a great weekend and would recommend this hotel .

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LucianQueenJay Fairly Ok Experience
We stayed here twice in one weekend. Our first stay was great. We loved our room on the third floor. However on our second stay we were placed on the fourth floor and the room seemed worn out.
As for breakfast, as someone who's worked in the hospitality industry, I would suggest having someone constantly replenishing the sausages etc. instead of waiting until it is completely done to have guests waiting forever for it to be replenished. Also, the variety is quite limited. We did not eat most of what was offered. By the way, bananas should be ripe and not fairly green and hard.
I also believe towels should be replaced once a day instead of every other day as there is no place to get them dried. Makes no sense to reuse a wet bath towel.
Other than that the overall look of the hotel is nice and clean and staff are great. Despite our issues above, we will definitely return as we were able to relax and get away from our hectic lives for a little bit.

It was only a 1 night stay for my 8 yr old daughter and I. We were going to a concert at the O2 so it was a great location - only 4 stops on the tube. Staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was more than adequate. Enjoyable stay at a good price!

Stayed just for one night, lovely welcome on arrival, clean comfortable room. Would have liked an additional bedcover/blanket & softer pillows, would have requested for a longer stay. Went to a concert at the O2, very convienent location, used DLR & tube to North Greenwich. Lovely selection for breakfast, would recommend & would be happy to use again.

Location is ideal for central London and the offer is your standard multi national company fayre but they have taken efficiency to a whole new level. Room was freezing and even a call to reception could not change that. Take your thermals! Otherwise it's fine.
