Guest Reviews

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 320 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good stay and helpful staff The staff were always helpful with a pleasant attitude. The room was clean with a nice interior. November 14, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very friendly staff and good location for London sightseeing We arrived very early but the Staff at reception desk checked us in with no problems which was very important for us. Once we were very late for the breakfast and the Staff that was taking care was still very helpful and asked whether they should bring any of the breakfast items. We appreciated this very much. There is one thing that I would like to draw the attention of the management - the smell from the Air Conditioning was not very nice that is why I do recommend either the cleaning process or the conservation of this equipment. November 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by party staff were very helpful and met more than my needs, only issue was the air conditioning was noisy and could have been able to open the window even if only a little apart from that, perfect location for my visit and really appreciated that staff were able to ensure my fully loaded vehicle was very close to hotel November 13, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent service Stayed for the second time in a couple of weeks. Once again I was inpressed with the excellent service from the staff at this hotel. Warm and friendley welcome from the reception staff and a nice attitude from all the other staff. Very clean room and to be honest no issues at all. Superb location for business and pleasure in London November 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Stay great location good service, good stay easy check in November 8, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Outside Noise ruined my sleep I would recommend avoiding at the weekend due to amount of noise from party goers outside, in Shoreditch! November 7, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Basic with expensive parking!!! Arrived at hotel with very pleasant helpful staff. Was told there was no parking spaces left so the nearest NCP car park was recommended at a cost of £43 per night!! Room was a family room with a sofa bed, clean but had a big patch of damp on the carpet which looked like a huge patch of mould. Bathroom spotless and beds made up well. The 3 packet of complimentary earplugs were a bit concerning! We wereat rear of hotel and sure enough at bar closing time it was very rowdy - to the point it woke both me and my husband up and window was very drafty hence the noise level!! Breakfast was a bit of a free for all - not a huge deal of variety, cereal, pastries, toast, yoghurts, fruit, hot sausage, scrambled egg and beans was the only choices for cooked breakfast. Staff were again pleasant and helpful. Overall not the greatest of hotel experiences!!!! November 7, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Half-term Break A family group of 10 ( 2 families of 4 plus g/parents) booked an half-term break and chose the hotel from browsing the internet. We had no complaints about the hotel, although it lacks many amenities it is fairly well situated to a tube station (Old Street) and close to Kings Cross making it an ideal base to get around London and see the sights. There was some noise in the rooms from the busy road but not sufficient to prevent sleeping. The rooms were well furnished, the beds comfortable and the bathrooms appeared to have been recently refurbished and were very good. The hotel doesn't have much public area but it doesn't appear to be an issue, the majority of the residents seem to be out most of the day and evening. I used the bar area each night and there was never more than a further 6-8 others, I was pleasantly surprised with the drinks prices I was expecting to pay @ £5 for a pint but it was less than £4. The only slight downside was at breakfast time with the limited seating but after the first day we found that if you went after 8-30 then there wasn't as much of a problem. There was plenty of choice, even if it was much the same every day we didn't have a problem with it. Overall it was an enjoyable break and we would definitely consider staying there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Clean and comfortable Good service, clean, comfortable. Easy for tube, ideal for the family. November 2, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Simple and fair - Clean but very bad smell in room Very clean, but very bad smell in room Lack of safe deposit box is an issue. Bathroom needs better lighting Terrible, noisy and packed breakfast November 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Comfortable bed and great service. Will stay their again. The personel are exelent!! Very neat clean and sufficient service. October 30, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location We had an excellent stay clean, comfortable,safe but breakfast basic. October 29, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Hotel is to relax but the experience was otherwise i booked Holiday inn considering that i will get some rest after a day long working hours but experience was the worst ever as i could not sleep because of the ac system in the hotel. I use to wake up in night scared because ac use to make such bad noise as someone has entered my room. really what amount i paid for the stay was not acceptable as it was really expensive..... lets see what Holiday inn will do for keeping a customer October 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Two night stay Stayed here for two nights in a family room whilst taking our kids to London. A ten minute tube ride from Euston, and a few minutes walk from Old Street stations, it's ideal located to get into the heart of London. Our room, 541, was billed as a family room - in reality it contained a double bed and a double sofa bed, leaving little room for anything else. This didn't matter as we were out and about from 9am to nearly 7pm both days. The breakfast buffet was welcoming: sausages, beans, eggs, breads, croissants, cheeses, yoghurt, teas, coffees and juices - all included. There's a bar serving drinks and snacks in the evening, with an off license within a minutes walk, and Sainsbury's across the road too. Will definitely consider staying here again next time we bring the kids to the big smoke. Contrary to other reviews, we found there to be little noise at night from within or outside the hotel - possibly due to being on the top floor. The rooms at the far left of the floors look like they have extra room and good views across the Shoreditch Triangle and down towards the Silicon Roundabout. October 27, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Value for money Near to almost everything you want to visit in London, close to the underground and close to pubs, restaurants and clubs.. Nice people, good rooms and OK breakfast. What more do you need on your family visit to London? October 27, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Another disapointing Express stay. Although the staff are always friendly enough the facilities seem very poor. During my stay: The Bar / restaurant was very small and had half the menu unavailable. Room was initially wrong. An ironing board was outside my room the entirety of the stay. The TV wasn't working correctly (after the 3rd call to maintenance I gave up on TV) October 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean room and great service On arrival the reception staff were helpful and welcoming. Our room was spotless and comfortable, and met our needs completely. The location was perfect, a few minutes walk from the tube station. This is the best value hotel we've stayed at in London and will definitely stay again. October 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by London in October I was impressed by the genuinely warm welcome greeting at the front desk when checking in - the best I have experienced in a long time. October 23, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Modern and clean hotel in busy Shoreditch Nice and modern but quiet rooms, everything was very clean. Very attentive and friendly staff. Good variety at breakfast. Great value for money. We enjoyed our stay very much! October 23, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Connecting... please stand by... -- Cons -- - Shower - For some reason they gave me a handicap room. Which for a non-handicap person doesn't finds specifically easy to take a shower in with a handicap chair in the middle of the shower. The water-pressure was also rather low, but not too low to make it impossible to have a shower. - Free Internet - The wireless internet was extremely unstable from my room. Had 1 dot to two dots on the status indicator. It was near impossible to have a Skype conversation. - Air Conditioning - This unit was noisy from time to time. - TV - At first I only thought that there were only 2 channels installed, since going from welcome screen to one BBC to another BBC and then blank, blank, blank and then more TV channels. -- Pros -- - Bed - Bed was comfortable, clean and had a nice selection of soft and firm pillows. - Breakfast - The quality of the breakfast seemed to be in order and there was a good variety of different products. - Elevator - It was working... So no need to walk up the stairs :) - Dark Thigh Curtains - To make the room dark enough to sleep in against the city light. October 21, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good stay Very good location, attentive staff. Only problem was the AC of the room that worked poorly October 20, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Spacious room, comfortable bed and great service I stayed for two nights and I was very pleased with the overall service. The bed was very comfortable, the room spacious enough and clean. The breakfast was average and the free wi-fi connection a bit slow but other than that I was very pleased. I highly recommend it for business travelers that need a nice, clean and relaxing room to rest. October 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Tourist Hotel Spent three nights at the hotel and returned a week later for an overnight stay. Excellent, friendly, well-trained staff at Reception and throughout the hotel. On both occasions the rooms were basic but adequately equipped and very clean. The first night we were in room 107 (avoid!) - which was adjacent/over the heating plant and there was constant mechanical noise all night. Our request to be moved was dealt with immediately and the following two nights were undisturbed. This hotel is value for money and hence is quite busy - not a haven to relax and the bar area is limited but a very good base to tour London with bus stops outside the hotel and an Underground station 3/4 minutes walk. Would recommend highly. October 15, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Location, Location, Location Great location, very clean, great shower. Shame about the slightly noisy air con (which a note by the bed, along with ear-plugs (!), said they were working on). October 14, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by WORST HOLIDAY INN EVER I would go in too much details, here are the highlights: - WORST Breakfast Ever - Stale Breads October 13, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Business Quick stop did the job! we stayed at this hotel because it was ideally located for our business purposes October 13, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Clean and tidy, friendly staff, but they must change the beds Nice and clean family room. OK breakfast. Friendly staff, excellent location i Hoxton with nice restaurants nearby and only a few minutes walk to the nearest tubestation. We will be back as soon as we know for certain that they have changed the beds and sofabeds. We had five nights with low quality sleep both for grown ups and kids. October 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 EXCELLENT STAY This was my first visit to this area of London, however I will now be visiting on a regular basis due to business. I will definately stay in the hotel again. October 8, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by disappointing i stayed at holiday inn express several times across the world and was very satisfied. this is the first time i am truly diasppointed with HI express. the room was very noisy, which made it hard to sleep. though room was facing the street and low floor there were only regular windows (no double glazing or any other noise reducing solution). in addition the air conditioning system in the hotel had some malfunctions, that caused constant annoying noises from the AC vent at all hours. as a response to that, hotel management handed noise reducing ear plugs. this is not a soultion .. :( if management is aware of that - please let guests know in advance and that they decide if this is a sufficient soltion to them. though free wifi was promised - it was impossible to connect to the hotel wifi. on a good note - hotel staff was welcoming and nice. bed quality also good. but to sum it up, me experience here will make me not want to choose HI in the future.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 3 days stay - weak Internet speed - nor working key-cards - no diversity in breakfasts September 30, 2014
