Lets start with the positives. Hotel is in a great location, value for money wise, what you pay for such a good location is not bad. Small car park, bookable for GBP20 a night,very fair, staff are lovely, reception people warm, and welcoming,really lovely, the breakfast included is ok, its not brilliant, but you could get your fill and eat...

The price of the room was way above what it should have been. The hotel is very old and needs lots of refurbishing. The sheets and towels were clean or we wouldn't have stayed, but the towels were as thin as kleenix. The heater was extremely noisy, mostly because it was old, so sleep was difficult, as it was cold...

The tube, supermarket, dry cleaning shop and O2 Center are close to the hotel and make it attractive place. This is a good place to stay if you're on a budget limitations or your destination is close to the hotel's location, otherwise I'd recommend to stay closer to the city center. Try to ask for a room with windows facing...

Second stay at this hotel, this time for longer and with friends. Reception staff very helpful, rooms adequate, clean and with enough space for a few nights. The included breakfast offers a good variety of food both hot and cold. Check out and check in seamless. The first night offers a complimentary mineral water- always wonder why not on additional...

A good choice for a short trip. It's a 3 minute walk from the tube station, 1 stop from Baker Street and 15 mins to Euston square, plus the overground is just as near with good connections to Camden. Room was fine and comfortable with desk and small sofa and reasonable wifi. Staff were very friendly and helpful which made...

Conveniently located 20 mins from Oxford Circus (by tube), across the road from several restaurants, near a couple of mini-markets. My friend and I had 24hrs in London for my Birthday. From the moment we walked into the hotel it felt welcoming - this was mainly down to Vanessa on reception who was an absolute delight. She found a room...

I stayed in this Holiday Inn Express for one night. It is conveniently located; about two minutes by foot from Finchley Road Tube Station. Although it cannot be described as an inner London hotel, Finchley Road is only one stop away from Baker Street on the Metropolitan line. Baker Street is a major transport hub for the subway network and...

We stayed here first weekend in December mainly because it was very close to our coach drop off. We found the staff very friendly and efficient, the room was spotless and the bed very comfortable. We overlooked the Finchley Road and so had traffic noise all night. Didn't bother me but some may not like it. Breakfast was basic and...

The hotel is definately centrally located with the underground station just 5 mins away walking. But i did not enjoy the stay. The rooms and too small and the service is not upto the mark. I expected more from the brand name like holiday inn. The hotel is more of convenience than anything else.
