Our stay in the Holiday Inn Express in Sheffield was a first, following a friend's recommendation, and we were not disappointed.
The en-suite room was spacious, clean

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Linda90 Great all round
Great location,friendly, helpful staff, check in and out smooth. The room was absolutely spotless,a triple with lots of space,comfortable beds,quiet and only a few minutes walk from city centre. Hotel is in area near canal with several other hotels in the vicinity. Breakfast was good, lots of choice and plenty of space to sit comfortably. Extra bonus is that hotel has a bar serving coffee,snacks and meals throughout the day.
Our first experience of a Holiday Inn Express, but it certainly won't be our last. Great value for money,very good standard would definitely recommend it.

Make sure your sat nav has the latest map. I drove around for over 30 minutes and still couldn't find my way past the one way systems in Sheffield.
I was able to park in the hotel car park. The check in was polite and prompt. The room was a good size and well presented. The hotel was quiet and I enjoyed an undisturbed night's sleep. No weekend wedding functions to contend with.
The cooked breakfast was very limited but OK.
Overall good value and I will stay there again.

We stayed in a twin room for a girls catch up weekend and this was absolutely fantastic value for money with no request being a problem. Fantastic reception staff who sorted us a wine bucket and ice for our room. Breakfast choice fairly standard but again good value for money (no bacon), however sausages, scrambled eggs and various buffet choices so overall well recommended. Will definitely use again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Deadly Great location
Good staff service and overall the hotel is modern. car parking really easy and town and Pond's Forge really close and easy to walk to.
Only let down was the room could be cleaner. carpet a bit mucky and a mark on the wall which wiped off ok - possibly coffee from previous guest..

I stayed here for the first time in august 2014. I was immensely impressed and will stay again. The room was spotless and the bathroom well designed. The bed was super king and everything was quiet. Lovely night.
I wasn't so impressed with breakfast but I never expected to be offered it for free so you can't complain about that. Well done HI Express.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Much better than all the negatives
Really once again people's negatives not really valid
The whole hotel in terms of hygiene cleanliness and service very good
We asked for a room on a particular floor for a special.visit
Was amused before I went at the "no bacon" complaint don't understand why it could not be served however if that the only complaint then not bad!!
Thanks overall to the staff made our visit to Sheffield very speclat

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gorgeous. Granny overall a good experience
very good bathroom, sofa bed a good size.Costa coffee downstairs a bonus. Nice to be able to eat dinner in holiday inn across the road.
Very convenient for Ponds Forge.
Bed was very uncomfortable, mattress poor quality.Breakfast a free for all and very average food.Husband covered in tomato sauce when he opened bottle it exploded, the bottles had not been wiped at end of breakfast, probably for days!
But overall it was a good inexpensive place to stay when needing to be near pool.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Happysteve Still one to beat
I stay fairly frequently at this hotel and am continually impressed by the standard of service offered by the staff and the excellence of the hotel itself. The staff clearly make every effort to respond to guest requests and genuinely care to make your stay a pleasant experience. The fact that the hotel is air-conditioned, particularly during the recent hot weather is something nearby hotels seriously need to take on board - this one beats them all hands down on this one point alone. Add free internet and free breakfast and it is difficult to see how anyone else can compete. Costs are quite reasonable - there are cheaper but look what you are missing out on

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wendy1957 Nice accommodation and great service
I recently spent the weekend in Sheffield and stayed at the Holiday Inn Express City Centre for 3 nights.
The hotel is nice and clean and very close to all the local amenities. There is a relaxing bar with indoor and outdoor seating as well as a nice choice of food. There's even something for vegetarians.
The bedrooms are well appointed and the shower was the biggest I've ever seen in a hotel.
The staff are delightful and nothing is too much trouble.
I would happily recommend this hotel to anyone planning to spend some time in Sheffield.

On arrival I approached a congested reception with confidence that I would be easily and quickly dealt with. Several minutes wait to reach front of queue, pleasant enough staff but no priority check in was prepared. More waiting while it seemed a room was found for me. This was a twin rather than the double requested, on inspection I discovered the toilet was in a soiled state. I returned for another long stand, no alternative room was available, so I vacated while it was cleaned. While at reception several people appeared to be told their booking had been moved to the Holiday Inn adjacent to this Express as they were overbooked.
Whilst the cleaning issue was resolved and my meal in the Great Room was offered as complimentary, this situation should not have arisen. Understaffing at the heart of this problem in my opinion. Running from Reception to serve on the Bar and to the kitchen doesn't give them a chance if a problem arises.

Booked under 21day saver deal I Recently stayed for 2 nights while in Sheffield for my sons graduation. We had a double bed with a bed setee the room was very clean with tea and coffe making facilities the beds were very comfortable . The room had air conditioning which was really needed because the weather was so warm . Breakfast was plentiful and served from 6am - 10am . The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Only one negative comment was that we had no view our room looked directly into the multi-storey car park but it wouldn't put me off staying there again

This Holiday Inn Express is one of the best in the chain. We received a friendly welcome and a very well appointed room on the 7th floor. Large room with good walk-in shower and king size bed. Food at breakfast was in line with other hotels in the chain and included in the room rate and represented good value. We would use this hotel again

Holiday Inn Express Sheffield City Centre is located at a prime location in Sheffield. It is in walking distance to many places in the city centre. The hotel itself is very clean. There is no noise in the rooms, so you can just relax. The quality of food (breakfast) is very good. The staff are very polite, welcoming and helpful. I recommend this hotel

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Lizbuff Noisy corridors and full car park
I have previously stayed here and found it a great quality hotel.
However on this occasion the noise was intrusive. The other guests doors slam shut, the fire door to the lifts does the same.As such get a room away from the stairwell.
The car park was an additional charge - what options do you have as a guest? It should be free to IHG members. Instead we pay that national monster who polices car parks such as this by numberplate recognition and billing you later. The car park and wifi used to be free to IHG guests.
Instead there is free wifi everywhere for everyone, with a computer and printer in the lobby and a £5 charge per night for parking - which is not guarded or patrolled. As such you can park where and how you like which everyone did, filling the disabled and bus spaces.
So, arrive early or have a tiny car! The neighbouring hotel in the Holiday inn has a car park on a separate level where you take the lift to the ground floor, cross the car park and enter the hotel as usual. However I felt vulnerable walking around alone in the dark in the upper car park and to the lift door.
There was air-con in the room but I would have preferred none and leave the window closed, but I could not turn it off.
The room was perfectly decorated with a good combination of light controls, an attractive bathroom, large shower, hair dryer and tea/coffee making facility. A lovely clean room, Your name appears on the TV welcome screen and the remote control was working.
I thought my stay was overpriced and as such I would not stay here again unless I was sharing the room and reduce the cost.
The staff here are faultlessly polite and like 5 star staff, pleasant approachable and professional.
Also take your earplugs.

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!
