Holiday Inn Express Leicester City

Well done HI Express Walkers Staium, Leicester; you have resolved the water problems I experieneced on previous vists and I would gladly stay at your hotel once again.

Reservedly I booked to stay at HI Express Walkers Staium Leicester after experiencing horrid water problems as well as problems with my bill last time round but to my delight all had been resolved.

This is now once again a very good value for money hotel excellantly located for business and leisure travelers to leicester

I would however recommend you ask for a room away from the elavators as close to them you can still hear a slight whine but this would only be a problem to very light sleepers.

The breakfast was very good and well laid out although you are not offered pancakes as you are in all HI Express's in the States.

There also appears to have been a complete staff change, as they are now a very helpful and friendly bunch who go about their tasks very professionally.

Well done HI Express Walkers Staium Leicester!

I have stayed many times at this Holiday Inn Express. It is clean, functional and within walking distance to some good eating places in Leicester. I did not use the adjacent restaurant this time as the menu looked fairly standard fair and there is a lot more choice locally. Plenty of parking, easy access and the standard room decor and facility.
Booked it a few days in advance so expected to pay higher than if done in advance. Still operate smoking rooms which allows a choice.
No WiFi in rooms which is a bit of a let down but free wifi in public areas and it is a good moderate speed.
Nice and quiet so I would recommend it if you just need a good clean place to sleep.

Room Tip: If you want a smoking room then ask. If you want a non smoking room then ask. Book late and choice i...

My girlfriend and I were staying in Leicester for just 1 night. This hotel was easy to find with plenty of parking and near to the large shopping centres. Our room was spotless and modern and we could not hear a thing through the walls from anywhere else. Air con worked excellently and reception even provided us with a fan when asked. If I had to find a fault it would be the limited selection of tv channels, they could easily invest in soem freeview boxes. But overall a really nice stay over and good value for £49.

Nine of us stayed here for the weekend. We were visiting UK for a family event. The Hotel staff were very nice and friendly. Elevators to floors. Wi-Fi free in foyer not in rooms! Foyer area includes Reception/Bar & Restaurant - open plan and neat. Rooms/en-suite spotless clean. Tea/Coffee making facilities in room. Service staff very friendly also. Breakfast was included in room cost - plenty of everything Juice, Tea/Coffee,Toast, Cereal, Eggs/Sausages (Sausages not so good though!) Pastries & Preserves, Yoghurts, Fruit - everything fresh. This Hotel was perfect for our short stay in the area. Excellent value for money.

Breakfast is poor, service in the reseption is poor/ angry manager (exept at evening/night). But the rest is great. Bathroom is very nice, comfort bed, clean rooms, and a quiet street. 5-10 min walk to bus stop where city bus stops every 10 min. Cinema just around the corner and some ok restaurants some minuts away. Also goKidsgo 500 m from the hotel. And King Power stadium (Leicester C FC) and mega store 50 m away. I have stayed in 4 different hotels in Leicester, and this one is the best so far. I have stayed here 2 times the last 3 years, for 5 and 3 days. So this one is recommended!
