Holiday Inn Express London-Limehouse

Reviewed 22 July 2014

Stayed here in a family room in May 2014, decent room for four of us, could not get a very good deal as booked for one Sat night only at short notice - best price was £170 via Expedia.
Located in a nice area right in the heart of Docklands - easy access to central London via the Docklands light railway (train to Bank then tube straight to Tottenham Court Rd / Oxford St - DLR station about 5 mins walk from the hotel)

Only downside was the choices available at breakfast - hot items normally include sausages, eggs, baked beans - on our Sunday morning only baked beans from the list were available - my grumpy teenagers refused to eat any of the cold items on offer

Stayed at this Hotel as part of a 'secret hotel' deal and was good value for a hotel of this standard, booked late in the middle of summer.
The rooms were of a good size and excellently cleaned and this level of cleanliness seemed to be replicated across the hotel.
A shower gel/shampoo attached to a dispenser is located in the standard bathroom (which has a toilet, sink and shower) and tea and coffee making facilities and a TV plus desk area are also in the rooms. A hair dryer is also included in the room and any forgotten toiletries are available free from reception.
The beds were clean and comfortable with a choice of soft or firm pillows.
The room and the hotel was fitted with an effective air con which was needed as we visited during a very hot week.
I found the staff to be friendly and helpful.
The breakfast was adequate, not quite a full offering you'd get with similarly priced hotel chains with sausages, beans and scrambled eggs being the only cooked foods (no bacon, mushrooms etc.) but there were cereals, breads and toast and coffee and tea machines as you'd expect.
The bar and breakfast area is pleasant enough with Sky News being shown on the TV's. The bar was not as expensive as I had anticipated, but it was still at 'hotel' prices.
There is not a great amount in the immediate vicinity of the hotel, but it is about a five minute walk to Limehouse DLR which can get you to Bank underground station in two stops to connect with central London. It's also a quick DLR trip to Canary Wharf, which has a range of bar and restaurants, though this may be limited at weekends.
Overall, I had no complaints about this Holiday Inn Express. I found the hotel to be of good quality, it's not luxury and nor does it claim to be, if you want a good nights sleep in a comfortable, clean hotel not far from central London then I'd recommend this one.

5 minutes walk to DLR Limehouse Station – so handy for ExCel. On busy road next to cement works, but only a 30 second walk to River Thames towpath which is a great bonus. Slightly more basic than I expected for a Holiday Inn Express, especially the breakfast. Overall good value and you’ll have a good night’s sleep - so I’m happy. If you’ve looking for somewhere to eat, 5 minute walk down the Thames Path to a pub called The Narrow - good food and fantastic view toward Canary Wharf.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel - I had one and was very quiet.

The hotel itself was good, nice reception and bar area, staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were the standard layout for a Holiday Inn Express, nice and light, comfy bed and good size bathroom.

Access is fairly decent as well with on site parking that is chargeable however. It is close to Limehouse DLR station which is just a stones throw from Canary Wharf (5 minutes away), also close by is London City Airport (LCY) which is accessible via the DLR in about 20 minutes or so.

The only bad points for me are, the location of the hotel, it is in the middle of a small industrial area next to a cement factory, the hotel does not serve food other than breakfast and without jumping on the DLR your choices are limited. The hotel does have some takeout menus available for you to use and is happy to accept orders from take out locations for your room.

Externally this is a bland hotel situated in a light industrial estate in an area which appears run down. However it is convenient to the DLR, allowing easy access to the City of London. When you go inside it has a very pleasant interior with helpful staff. The rooms, I was lucky to get a family room, are spacious and clean, although there is limited room to store clothing. They do suffer a little from outside noise from the nearby railway line. Breakfast is in a buffet style and is well laid out.

Less than 5 minutes walk from a DLR station, and about 15 minutes to the O2. Everyone else was going the other direction, so quick to get to after a performance.
Decent breakfast in the morning with a range of options available
