We are a family of four and recently spent 3 nights here. We were pleased beyond our expectations. It is a great location, close to the underground and within zone 2. There is a small convenience store very close by. The room was clean and very quiet. We were a bit cramped with the futon open, but we knew that...

The hotel has very friendly staff and the check-in process was fast. The hotel is great for family. The family room a bit small but comfortable. Travelled with two kids and they love the breakfast even it was simple but very generous. Free one hour of wifi daily (at lobby) and a free daily paper of my choice. The hotel...

Slightly expensive, but considering Olympics this year, I recommend that anyone having to work in London on business (like myself) tries to remote work as much as possible. Very near Tube station. Clean rooms and polite staff.

This hotel is my default choice in London , mainly becuae of price and proximity to the Jubilee. When I asked about Wifi ( normaly travel with laptop but not this time) they mention Ed they have wired Internet in rooms. Which obviously not good for tablets and smart phone. This should be standard!

This hotel is great for a couple with two kids, because they can stay in the same room. Good price, breakfast normal but enough, and has a metro and bus very close. Rooms and W.C. O.K. The only negative point is some noise from the traffic. In general without doubt i recommend the hotel.

My daughter and I just returned from a trip to London, staying at the Holiday Inn Express on Finchley Road. We would definitely recommend it to other travelers. The hotel is less than a 5 minute walk from the Finchley Road tube stop which is on both the Jubilee and Metropolitan lines. You can be in central London in 10-15...

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...

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...

This is my 4th stay and this review finds nothing to degrade all the great things I mentioned in all my previous reviews of this place.
