We had two adjoining rooms on the top (5th) floor (530 & 532); two adults in one room, two adults + 2 small children in the second room. We selected this hotel as it's one of the few IHG hotels in London which accommodate 2 adults and 2 kids in the same room. The windows don't open, the aircon is... More

I booked into this Holiday Inn Express at about 9pm the night before my stay, as I had a last minute meeting crop up. I wasn't expecting much as it was the only hotel available under £300 in zone 1 at such short notice - but I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel is a couple of minutes walk from Old... More

My wife had to have eye surgery at Moorfield Hospital nearby. The staff could not do enough to make our single night stay as comfortable as possible.For example, seeing her discomfort when we came down for dinner, the barman obviously noted that dinning in public would be embarrassing for her,offered to bring our meals up to our room for us,...

My room seemed recently refurbished so was in good repair. The bathroom is fine, but very small. I slept well. Breakfast was not very impressive - the quality of the food was not... More

My daughter and I stayed the weekend of 5th to 7th July while visiting the O2 arena for the Monty Python show. The hotel was clean, welcoming and efficient, plus realistically priced. Breakfast was adequate, some of the hot items ran out quickly and staff were slow to re-fill them but there were plenty of cold alternatives. The positioning of... More
