Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dinger bell Central location
I found this hotel to very well located for any visit to Newcastle reasonably priced and clean the only downside is they don' t do any meals other than breakfast but there are plenty of outing places nearby. Parking is is the multi-storey next door free from 188 until 0800 then £5 per day remember don't use the ticket holders parking bays.

My family and i used this hotel for 2 nights as part of our tour of the North of England The hotel is within walking distance of the town centre.
We used the car park next to the hotel. The car park was competively priced at around £5 per day.
The facilities at the hotel were very good and the staff were very helpful and offered directions of how to get to diferent places.
We asked for a change of room on arrival and this was not a problem and another room was found for us at no exrra charge.
The staff at the hotel offered us 4 complimentary vouchers to spend on a light snack and drink during our stay at the hotel.

Breakfast was adequate but I need a workout facility. Room too small to do my own workout.

A group of ladies with differing ages found an excellent reception with very friendly staff. All were in agreement that we would look forward to the next time we had reason to stay in the city centre, this would be our first choose. Excellent service all round thanks to all the staff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Droctor Good value for money
The room has a good size, bigger than I expected. It was very clean and has all the necessary stuff. Location is good too, just 5 minutes' walk to station. Perfect for business stay. Breakfast can be improved but hey it's free.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Such fun 1st stay here
Stayed as going to Metro Arena so very handy.
Arrived just after 2 and room was ready. Quite small but as only there 2 nights it was fine although if it was to be a longer stay i think additional storage should be considered. The bathroom also small but a good shower, easy to use, but the toilet was hosting 3 hairs which was a bit disappionting.
No noise or disturbance from other guests although the room was on the cool side. On our 2nd day we got back at 3.15 and our room had not been serviced. I went to receiption as we had no tea or milk. Although the lady replenshed me with tea and milk there was no apology. I know it is a big hotel but i would have thought that the rooms would have been done by 3.
On the whole though i would probably stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jules-G wonderful staff - went the extra 10 miles!
I could not have asked for more form the two people on reception when I checked in. They both went well out of their way to help me with complicated travel arrangements around Newcastle and did not make me feel a nuisance, or give me only half of their attention despite the time it took. Thank you very much I would recommend a stay at this hotel willigly.

As title, stay here weekly.
The staff as a whole are very friendly and the young lad who does breakfast is always super friendly and happy to be there which is nice first thing in the morning.
Rooms are fine and clean, well laid out. Beds are comfortable.
Drawbacks are the wifi is slow as... and the rooms can be noisy with the road outside, think its the main thoroughfare to Newcastle so sirens are not unusual.
Its pretty central, 5 minute walk from the town centre.
Overall happy to stay here.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mature English Couple A hotel to revisit
Could not fault hotel on any aspect. The room was airy, clean and well proportioned and very quiet, although being on the fifth floor may have helped. Breakfast was more than adequate with plenty of selection. The hotel was very central to the city so making it easy for public transport, all within easy walking. I would have no reservations recommending this hotel to any visitor.

I stayed in this hotel the night before an interview. The price was good and included breakfast so it was well worth the money. There was a lot of choice at breakfast - my only problem was I couldn't take full advantage of it due to interview nerves! The location is great for the centre of Newcastle and just a 5 min walk from the station. The room was clean and comfortable as was the bathroom - would have liked to have a bath but not a major issue as the shower was good. Overall a pleasant stay.

We had a double room with a sofa bed which was spacious and comfortable. Check-in was swift and we were given information about parking and also offered change for the car park. Breakfast was fine and you could have as much as you wanted.
Ideally situated for strolling into Newcastle where there are plenty of places to eat.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BobH65 An ideal place to stay.
The Holiday Inn Express in Waterloo Square helped to make our visit to Newcastle extremely enjoyable. Its location in the centre of town made it very convenient for the train station, the shops, restaurants, the riverside walks and other places of interest.
Our room was very clean and freshly decorated and the beds were extremely comfortable. Room temperature was easy to adjust and hot water for showers was constantly available. Add to this the friendly and attentive staff, and you have the ideal venue for a stay in Newcastle.
We will certainly use Holiday Inn Express Newcastle City Centre on our next visit to Newcastle.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by AJAY2014 Basic, adequate accommodation.
I have stayed in a couple of IHG hotels (Dubai for 6 months, Mumbai for 5 days, Bangalore for 16 days, lots of others up and down the UK). While I understand that the "Express" brand is a budget type of hotel, I felt that the room I was given was just too basic especially as I am a Platinum Elite Priority Rewards member. No special consideration or service was given and I thought that was something that IHG prides itself on. Anyway, staff were un-interested at best - maybe slightly perturbed or angry that I even asked for an upgraded room (it should be automatic given my Priority Rewards status). If I didn't get free Wi-Fi and breakfast, it would have been so much worse. Anyway, I won't be staying here again - especially after paying the rates that they charge for a budget hotel.
