Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jhan2 fabulous hotel
We booked five rooms three months in advance and stayed saturday night for a family reunion party in Sheffield, From the first enquiry to checking out, i couldnt fault the hotel. on arrival the reception staff were very friendly and efficient and had clearly made a note of my special request of an extra sofa bed, (which was made up. a big help) The entire hotel is very modern, spotlessly clean and new. the rooms are spacious with everything a modern traveller could need.. a desk with stationary, luxurious lighting telephone and a large tv and free wi fi, huge modern bathroom with extra touches, hand soap, shower soap and tissues. the offer of fresh clean towels daily and extra personal toiletries was available. The beds were large and immaculately made with both firm and soft pillows.
The 'free' breakfast was 'help yourself' continental/hot buffet which was perfect , with extra tea/coffee and juices available throughout the breakfast slot. Evening meals were available. but we decided to have a fresh sandwhich and costa coffee which was lovely.
The car park was full when we returned very late at night but two extremely helpful night reception staff kindly showed us to the alternative space just around the corner. thank you.
There is absolutely nothing to say against this hotel, i will definitely returning to the Holiday Inn Express, Blonk St, Sheffield, and would also recommend to my friends..i already have!!

Excellent 2 night stay, comfortable and clean. Nice to have a free breakfast with plenty of choices including hot food.
Only gripe being charged £5 a night parking - NCP car park right next door only £2.50!
Although hotel is in a newly developed area alongisde several other hotels you do have to walk through a rather run down area of Sheffield to reach main shopping/restaurants, not sure I would like to do it at night.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Londoner072014 not great- got some of the basics wrong
Forgot to install the booked cot in our room, so when we arrived (late in the evening) we then had to wait 20 minutes before it turned up. It was filthy, and there was no sheet for it (fortunately I'd brought a big muslin with me so we used that).
The bathroom was a shower room- have you ever tried to wash a baby in a shower? Again, on booking I had asked for a bath- they seem to have lost all those details.
The room was a bit shabby- the curtain had come away from the rail at one end, and the desk looking like it hadn't been prefabbed properly- the right hand end was at a funny angle.
The free breakfast is dire- if you are going to offer a limited selection of items, they should be good quality at least. Croissants were greasy, sausages were burnt, orange juice was undrinkable (and a strange dark orange colour).
In short really disappointing- especially from a new hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bairnabroad Staff are blind to filthy furniture
Typical HIX room and generally clean. The sofa was very badly stained along the front edge in numerous spots. Rather obvious what it was. Must have been in excess of ten separate marks. How the cleaners could ignore this is staggering. Called reception to report and someone was sent up with a sheet to cover the sofa.
Also, the ironing board cover was filthy and worn. Can it be so much for this hotel to have a look at the covers and either occasionally wash or replace.
Two of the most disgusting incidents ever in any hotel in any country. Open your eyes people!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lizzy309 Basic but comfortable
We needed a place close enough to Sheffield train station on a tight budget as a last minute stay.
The Holiday Inn Express managed to do the trick. We had 2 single beds, which weren't the most comfy, but for the price we were fine.
Cleanliness in the rooms could be better. The toilet had the smell of one that hadn't been cleaned properly for a while

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Boba712 Easy parking
This is very centrally located and with plenty of parking spaces. The hotel is modern and comfortable. The staff appeared to be uninterested in guests and some looked to be pretty unhappy. For an "Express" it was as expected but did not make me want to come back again.

Nice stay, good price with breakfast included. We went for breakfast later rather than too early but most of the hot food had gone. What was left was nice. Parking best on the lower level as the lift does not always work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tina76 Great reception service.
Very nice hotel to stay in, very comfortable, great menu for dinner however some food was a little greasy for my taste. Very big portions. Breakfast was the main let down in the hotel, some of the fruit had gone off a little and hot foot selection is very limited. Everything else was great, bathroom was lovely,

Clean and tidy rooms, staff were friendly! Only there was no bacon for breakfast which was disappointing ! Taxi was about £5 to where we wanted to be on a night out and about 15 min walk from the train station so was in a good location in the city centre! Would definitely recommend and would definitely stay again!

This hotel is well-located for the University, but the mattresses and pillows were not up to the usual high standard.
All the staff were friendly and helpful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mobile architect business central
I only stayed here for one night whilst on business in Sheffield but the accommodation was excellent
For my purposes there was a decent work desk and a comfortable chair with able room to spread my papers around
the wireless broadband worked well and had a good signal for the whole time i was there.
the breakfast is a buffet style - help yourself which was excellent and good quality
be aware that the parking is a little limited but i managed to find a space and also note that the parking will cost you an additional £5 per night but given its position in town this isn't really a grumble just something that isn't highlighted when you book.
The room and the entire hotel was clean and tidy and staff were attentive.
I will definitely be staying here again.

Hotel is very nice and the rooms are very comfortable and well equipped.
The location is quite close the all the local amenities.
The breakfast is quite a basic choice.
The location of the breakfast bar can become very crowed.

We stayed here on visiting our daughter who is at uni in Sheffield and had a lovely two day stay. The hotel was very clean, the room was comfortable and very clean with a really efficient shower. Breakfast was good, had plenty of variety just the coffee could have been better !! Staff were very friendly and helpful we will definitely stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rich1673 Great hotel in city centre
Used this hotel for a one night stopover when collecting my son from Uni. Received a warm welcome on arrival and the staff are really friendly. The room itself was very big, clean and modern. Shower cubicle was massive and had a good powerful shower. It's in a very convenient location to the city centre. The only downside being it's fairly close to a main road so can be noisy into the night and first thing in the morning if you have the window open for ventilation.
Breakfast is the usual for a HI Express but the hot food was hot and not luke warm as I've experienced in the past. After checking out of the hotel we had some time to kill and were able to leave the car in the car park all day while we wandered around the city. Well worth the £5 you pay when you check in. I will strongly consider using this hotel again when I next visit Sheffield and would certainly recommend family and friends to do the same. A great experience!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by harrow150 Great value stay.
Loved the layout and comfort of the rooms. Staff very helpful and efficient. Good value stay only let down by the limited food choices, and sub-standard breakfasts.
Will recommend and look to stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TJS74 Fantastic stay....
A friend and I stayed in a twin room at the Sheffield City Centre Express. It went far beyond my expectations. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, the rooms were immaculate, the bathrooms were so clean they looked as if they had just been fitted. It was great value for money. Only comments I would make were the lighting in the bar/restaurant are quite harsh and maybe could be softened for the evening, and maybe the addition of some softer seating - for coffee and paper time or evening drinks, rather than being sat at the table all the time. Also, considering the price of the rooms, I thought the bar prices were high - little things, I'm being really picky here! Would definitely return though and thoroughly recommend.

Nice clean hotel. Check in/out easy. Very convenient for our purposes. Stayed one night. Parking a fiver. Breakfast next day was lovely, plentiful, fresh - no bacon. Bed was comfortable for me and had one of the best nights sleeps in a hotel I have had in a long time. Shower was big and lovely. Great!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Abbeygold AN AVERAGE RATING
The Hotel Manager on duty on my arrival date was a bit hostile, unfriendly.
The check-out time of 12 noon was made sacrosanct and they refused to allow even one extra hour. Otherwise you pay an additional £35!
The cleaner did a completely shoddy job on my first night.
Internet service was failing and a bit complicated.
Will prefer a better place next time.

Have stayed here several times and we are always delighted with our stay. Slight problem this time because when we turned on the airconditioning in our room it filled the room with a really dreadful smell (rotten eggs or stagnant drains).We turned it off and opened the window instead and reported it the next morning so, hopefully, sorted out by now.

Very happy with the overall experience, hotel was new and modern looking, staff were excellent had issue with mattress but was attended to immediately. Breakfast was great included in room rate which is hard to find. Overall package concerning price, hospitality and experience is second to none. Would recommend to anyone. Only concern was food prices in the restaurant, if lowered the atmosphere and use of hotel facilities would increase.
