“If you have to stay in Hull”
Reviewed 6 June 2009

This hotel is central, new and with excellent parking although payable. From memory I'm sure that wifi is free. Better than the Holiday Inn.

It's hard to get excited about HIE. They are a bit better than the travelodges and the like, but not massively so.

This was a typically average experience, good location, clean, safe, comfy yet simple.

The good: Wifi worked well (for free), TV was fine, location is excellent with a secure public car park which is very good value (£6/night, £15/3 nights, £21/week), always clean sheets and towels and well kept.

The showers are always excellent and the sinks are always too far from the wall and too badly lit to allow you to shave (but no worse than any other hotel)! Breakfast is fine for what you get, and at the risk of sounding like a total slob, you get a slightly nicer class of person than the very cheap hotels.

The only annoying factor was constantly having to go to reception to get my room card fixed.

The other really important thing to know is no restaurant in the hotel and there are no restaurants in the centre of Hull. The place is a dump. A real dump. other than a couple of Chinese places. I recommend the Tesco next door!

As for Hull, if you're working here then stay here. If you're on holiday then stay somewhere else. There are many pleasant villages in the area. Hull is a dump.

Recently stayed here for one night, and thought it wasnt upto the usual Express Inn Standard.

Positives

Good Location - Right in the centre but easily accessible, as you would expect for a hotel built above a shopping centre / car park.

Room & General Hotel Cleanliness - Clean and not worn. As to be expect from a hotel built in the last 2 years.

Must Try Harder

Cleck-in. Slow. One receptionists was dealing with a new arrival, one was on the phone try to deal with a previous customer by the sounds of things and another was wandering around aimlessly, she did come over and ask if we was being dealt with after a few minutes.

Room Air Conditioning - Very poor, hardly made a difference even on maximum in the room. The maintenance indicator was constantly flashing. It obviously flashes for a reason - Please sort it out. As soon as I opened the room door it was noticably cooler in the corridor than the room. I mentioned this on check out and was told I should have phoned reception as they control the temperature from their (?)(!)

TV - TV in the room switched on but couldn't change channels either with the remote control or using the controls on the TV itself. I asked for a replacement remote before going out in the evening. I believe it was changed but that didnt work either.

Breakfast - Choice & Cleanliness. It was the ususal HI Express breakfast. Not a wide choice as normal but at least it is something (Bread, Crossants, Pan-o-chocolate, Yogurts, Cereals & Fruit Juice / Tea / Coffee). What was disappointing though was the cleanliness of the Cutlery and Cups / Glasses, needing to select clean equipment rather than just picking something up expecting it to be clean.

Receptionist Knowledge - We was in Hull basically for a one night stop over and to visit 'The Deep'. No leaflets readily available in the hotel on local attractions, and the receptionist was particularly lacking on basic knowledge such as how far it was and if there was parking available. Surprising given it must be one of Hulls biggest attractions. She did however know in what folder to look for the information behind the counter so is suppose that was something. She said it was probably a 5 minute walk. Looking at the map it looked further so we didnt trust her and took the car instead. (It had parking for £3 but this offered a £2 credit on purchases in the shop - The Guide book was £2)

Reasonable

Car Parking - A reasonable £6 for 24 hours, to be expected given its central location I suppose.

We booked this hotel after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. It had an excellent central location right next to the new Hull Truck Theatre, transport interchange and St Stephen's Shopping Centre.

The staff were friendly and the bar staff made a lovely cup of tea!

A very pleasant short stay in Hull (seriously), helped by the quality and location of this accomodation.

Availability on Easter Weekend and a good deal (presumably because its predominantly a business hotel) is waht drew us to the Holiday Inn Express. Well it met and exceeded all our expectations.
Parking at the back door out of the weather (only £5.50 a day - make sure you pay the parking at the check-out desk, not at the pay stations otherwise you may have to pay the full daily rate), a friendly and efficient welcome at check - in, clean tastefully decorated and quite spacious rooms, and a good (though admittedly not fantastic) breakfast (continental style, but very nice with fruit, fresh baked bread & crossants etc).

Location though is first class, next door to the train station, Hull Truck Theatre and other central areas and museums.

Note of caution though, it is very central, and though the windows were well insulated, it is on a busy street, near-ish to a nightclub etc so some noise did filter through (sirens etc) till the early hours. My wife heard it I didn't, sound asleep - nice bed.

This is a new Holiday Inn Express right next to the main station in Hull, as you would expect the rooms are large, clean and have everything you need, good TV, WiFi etc. Midweek at £69 is ok but not as cheap as other like the Ibis down the road but it's a lot better.
