I chose the Holiday inn Express because I wanted the known quantity of the brand, and this certainly proved to be the case. The hotel is in Pimlico rather than Victoria, in a quiet, elegant georgian street about 10-15 minutes walk from Victoria station. the room was very small, which is not unusual in London, but it was clean and fresh, and well-designed. It had a (very small) desk, which i needed, and some good design touches, such as the hairdryer on the wall right next to the mirror. I had a nice, quiet room on the back of the hotel, which was very welcome. The hotel does not offer a lot of service, but such staff as I encountered were helpful and pleasant. Breakfast was descried as 'continental' but in fact also included some hot items (sausage, scrambled egg and baked beans).
