Good, average hotel without a "homey" feel though. Great location for the City where I had business.
The services I needed were provided. Nice restaurants in the near area and good pubs. The breakfast could have a greater variety but the late night bar was very nice as we were some travelling together.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by IvaRopati great location
hotel is clean and tidy. the location is awesome. the hot breakfast was a great surprise. I think most express only do cold so pleased that this one had facility. two main negatives, first was an irritating hum from outside my window, think it was the florescent lighting and the second was the TV...still the old style rather than the flat screen LCD or similar. Always annoyed at hotels that have not upgraded.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by head69 Been past, but never been in
I have been past the Holiday in Express many a time, but had never had a reason to stay till I got married and had to spend my penultimate night before the big day away from my Flat.
What a wonderful hotel. Brilliant rooms, with awesome views, great friendly and quick service, cheap price, taxis always availible and in the middle of Zone 1 in between London Brige and Waterloo with the river and tate modern a 5 minute walk away. TUMBS UP!!! Will definetly stay again. Thanks

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BZW48 Excellent Service and a Great Location
Hotel is a great place to base your trip to London. Its only a 5 min walk to the river bus or underground.
The room was spotlessly clean and was quieter than I was expecting for an Express hotel. Only one minor gripe about the room - the lighting - some fittings had been replaced by energy saving lamps, leaving the overall lighting level quite dim.
The most positive aspect of my stay was the staff, they were very helpful and would "go the extra mile" to help. Thank you Edwin for managing to flag down a taxi in the pouring rain!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Beerwulf Lots of road noise
I had a room overlooking the road. I could barely sleep due to traffic noise from outside, and lack of sound-proofing on the windows.
The coffee machine was broken at breakfast time, but the rest of the selection was good.
The elevator was small, but the staircase was nice.
The staff were helpful, but fitting sound-proofing isn't really the receptionist's job!

We enjoyed our stay very much. The rooms were spotless. The staff was very helpful. We were able to walk to the Thames and
also they were taxis available when we wanted to go further away.
The room was very nice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jb67 great location, clean and tidy room
We had a good stay. The room was very comfortable. Great location close to waterloo and just 5 mins walk to the south bank on the thames. Close to the Tate Modern and The Globe theatre.
Polite Staff who had very good local knowledge and were friendly.
One downside was that no plugs near a mirror! Hairdryer is provided which is by a mirror but no additional plug for straightners and so on.
Will stay and again and recommed the hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LondonTripper10 Excellent location, awesome breakfast
This hotel is located in an excellent location for the price you pay. Couple of miles of walk from many attractions. Short walk southwark tube station. Our room was in a quite location and could reasonably sleep a family of 2 adults and 2 kids. I really liked the breakfast. Scrambled eggs, toast, croissants, cereals, coffee, juice, fresh and packed fruits. eliminated the need for lunch on many days.
The only negative is the room key did not open the door on a couple of occasions. We were told magnetic strip on the key was affected and had to be re-progammed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mcpm Value
We were looking for a hotel near our son's apartment. This hotel was conveniently located and a good value - priced moderately for London.
The pull-out couch was uncomfortable for our son and the room was small.
We had some difficulty getting emails that were sent to us via the front desk during our stay.
The front desk personnel were not always able to answer our questions.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Glen Great Hotel for the price
I enjoyed the larger , clean ,room and breakfast. The area was a bit noisy with construction and traffic but pretty good soundproofing on the windows. Nice central location, close to everything. I have stayed all over London for the past several years. I would stay here again!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KTBEE Helpful friendly staff, good breakfast and convenient location
I enjoy staying at this hotel. It is not located in the most central part of London (I.e. west end) but London Bridge and the fabulous Borough Market are 'on the doorstep' and Victoria, Westminster and the West end are only a couple of tube stops away. Tube links are good, and a nice walk along the side of the river is easy (the river is about 200 metres or so from the hotel).
Reception staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms are typical Holiday Inn Express rooms - adequately equipped, generally clean and comfortable - and the breakfast is good, offering a wider choice (continental plus basic English) than in some similar hotels .
If you can get a booking when the rates are reasonable this is a good choice of hotel.
