Discover the very best of neighborhood living when you book a stay with Hotel Indigo® in one of our London boutique hotels. Mix and mingle with the locals over fresh hot bagels on Brick Lane, or grab a picnic in Paddington and head to nearby Regent's Park for ball games and open-air theater.
Savvy travelers explore the city by the 'tube' and discover that whizzing from one district to the next on the London Underground is the best way to go. There's so much to see in the Big Smoke that it's best to strike a balance between the must-see attractions and quirky day-to-day London. Stroll through the peaceful parks of Bloomsbury or gasp at the British Museum's huge and diverse collection of antiquities from around the globe. Just don't forget to venture off the beaten track, and discover the colorful East End street markets that hawk everything from seasonal blooms to second-hand bikes and vintage clothing boutiques.
Take time out to sample the sights, scents and sounds of the city's best-loved neighborhoods - slurp noodles fresh from the wok in atmospheric Chinatown, head to the South Bank for a cultural afternoon at cutting-edge galleries and Shakespeare's Globe theater, and join the tennis-mad for strawberries and cream at Wimbledon in July. There's a wide choice of lively bars and restaurants within walking distance of your London hotel. Raise a glass or two with the locals in authentic pubs to get the lowdown on the neighborhood's finest experiences.
From Sunday roasts and crackling fires at traditional local pubs in winter to open-air theater in Regent's Park in summer, scratch the surface and you're sure to find there's more to London than meets the eye.

About the best Holiday Inn we have stayed in.
Friendly staff, good location.[Less]
Excellent hotel and great service
We loved our stay at the Holiday Inn :) Great room with comfortable bed. Good food and excellent service from the staff. We were visiting the Harry Potter Studios Tour and needed to get a shuttle bus[More] there. And the Holiday Inn is so close to the train/bus station. And as the purpose of our trip was to celebrate my birthday in London for a few days. The staff at the hotel made my birthday extra special :)[Less]
Great place to stay for Harry Potter studios, very clean and modern hotel, great staff, great service, def recommend, near to good shops and bars too for evening entertainment.[Less]

Airport layover in London
Airport layover in London. My wife and I travel through London at least twice a year going to and from the United States. We either stay at the Intercontinental downtown or one of the Holiday Inns [More] at Heathrow airport. The Ariel Holiday Inn has always provided a consistent product. The management doesn't excellent job of training and supervising the front desk staff. The breakfast bar is this will run it anywhere. They offer fresh oranges to squeeze your own juice. They have an espresso machine at the bar which doesn't open till 8:00 AM which is the only drawback. Limousine service is extremely well-run and you can get to the airport for10£ In a clean Mercedes which is a bargain. The bathroom fixtures or a little tired But overall the room is excellent and the beds comfortable. For an airport stay over this is the best deal in London.[Less]
Excellent hotel apart from the TV
By Beardy McBeardface
This is a clean and professional hotel in the heart of Stratford. It is surprisingly quiet, but make sure you get a south facing room or you'll be overlooking the air conditioners of the shopping[More] centre. The big downer is the choice of TV channels. They don't even have the full range of free-to-air channels; some of those aren't tuned in properly and have no sound or no signal at all. There are no premium channels at all.[Less]
Excellent service at reception and helpful concierge staff. Good service for in-room dining - the chef was happy to modify a dish for me and it was delivered promptly which was appreciated after a 5[More] hour drive.[Less]
Room and bathroom were both spacious and comfortable. Having a safe that you could use was useful. Coffee and tea making facilities with iron and ironing table in the room were helpful, if needed.[Less]
