4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

This place is great. The staff are among the most caring and courteous I've come across. Super location just a minutes walk from Russell sq tube - from here zip direct to heathrow! Nice bar and restaurant. Get a executive suite it's worth the extra. Want a tip? Pay for breakfast on check in - you get a special price rather than waiting for next day!

i stay regularly at this holiday inn due to business. Great links by tube, and train. Rooms are good quality, staff are friendly. The menu could do with more frequent changes for regular customers. They have also introduced some gluten free options but could do with some more. Great shops within 5 five minutes walk for any forgotten items.
Unfortunately wifi is an extra as is the gym across the road

Room Tip: twin rooms are bigger,

2 minute walk to the tube station going past a nice little shopping area.

Nice clean rooms, food good too. There is a pub opposite the hotel, gets busy early evening, but empties after 9.

Good value for money in an excellent location.

We stayed here for 4 days while visiting the Chelsea flower show. Very nice hotel, friendly helpful staff. Breakfast was brilliant everything you could want. Lots of amenities nearby like restaurants, tube station, parks etc. and its in a quiet location ideal for seeing London. Downsides ? not really, maybe room was a little bit small and had no opening window so got a bit stuffy at times, and no free wifi connection available but these are minor quibbles. We will go back.

Room Tip: rooms at back away from street are quiet

We stayed in this hotel during the Easter Holiday. Ideal location: walking distance from the Eurostar terminal; and only a few steps from the Russel Square Underground station. Quiet area with several good coffeeshops / pubs / restaurants nearby. Across the street is a small shopping mall (pharmacy, supermarket, starbucks, Carluccio's Cafe, Sushi Bar,...).
Friendly and efficient staff, comfortable rooms (not the largest, but very clean and tastefully decorated). Everything in perfect condition (Looked new or recently renovated).
The breakfast buffet was good value for money: good choice and everything freshly prepared.
We certainly would stay here again during a next visit!

The rooms in this hotel are smaller than average for the same price in other London hotels, No mini bar/fridge, No safe which I thought was standard even in low star hotels.
The rooms were impossible to sleep in due to noise from guests in the next door rooms due to the walls being so thin. On the second night I was awoken at 04.10 by guests arriving.

Probably the worst hotel I have stayed in London

Room Tip: My advise is choose a room in another hotel

Comfortable hotel, with executive rooms that are bigger than traditionnal size in London. Good buffet breakfast. At a reasonable price versus the other hotels in the area. Professional, and in line with what you expect from such a chain. A good value for London.

Room Tip: Executive rooms
