This was my first time in London. The hotel was nice and clean. A typical Holiday Inn. We had 3 in our room and I had no complaints on the room size. It was a queen with another standard bed on the floor. The staff was nice and friendly. They have a small bar if you want a nightcap before... More

Very nice room. A good breakfast selection. A short tube ride to most tourist venues. The area has lots of restaurants including a real treat: Guglee, which serves Indian food. Terrific food and service! It's about a ten minute walk from the hotel, past the tube station. There is a laundry/dry cleaner right next door to the hotel. If you... More

I stayed in this hotel for one night on business. Holiday inn expresses are all so familiar - it is comforting, but they tend to merge into each other. The room is basic, and is as other HIE rooms are - clean and functional, but the bathroom was a bit tired looking. Everything worked, including the internet (which is free... More

If you are running the London marathon next year here are my top tips: do at least one 22 mile run in training; carb up beforehand; stay at this Holiday Inn - but book well in advance.
