Great hotel, location is perfect. Lovely restaurants short walk away in hoxton square that are perfect for families. Room was cleaned every day and perfect for short family holiday. Plenty of choice at breakfast and the staff were all very helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay again and recommend to families x

You never know where you will end up when you take a large group of students with a tour company. This hotel was a pleasant surprise. I was warned that we could be way out of town but this hotel was a 4 minute walk to the 'tube' and a 15 minute ride to the heart of the city. The... More

I've stayed here a couple of times now on business. It's within the company budget but like it due to its location near Hoxton, which gives me good choice of bars and restaurants to eat from and a good vibe after work. The hotel is a standard Holiday Inn, you know what you're getting. Rooms are clean and staff have... More

We have stayed in this hotel before, but last time the air conditioning was extremely noisy all night - this time it was much quieter thankfully. The room was clean and spacious but very dim, and definitely needs better lighting. The desk light was a joke. The desk/dressing table needed to have a mirror above it on the wall, as... More

Thank you for your review and feedback. We are currently working on the AC issue and hope to have this resolved completely shortly. I will pass your comments to the design team re Mirror at Desk. Our Breakfast is the standard for Holiday Inn Express and this does not offer bacon at present, but the brand is looking to change... More

I stayed on a Saturday evening. Arrived just after 2pm and my room was already available to check in. I stayed in a corner room on the 4th floor that had a nice light feel to it. As you'd expect the room was compact but well layed out, I've certainly stayed in smaller. The bed was very comfortable and you... More

My parner and I stayed here for 2 nighs at the start of the month. We arrived in London by train and wanted to stay at this hotel due to its location (close to Liverpool Steet). Our train arrived by 8am, so we headed off to find the hotel. It was about a 10-15 minute walk and was easy to... More

I've stayed in this hotel twice now for business trips (usually when other hotels I normally stay at are full). It's right next to Shoreditch and the world of bars and resturants that now litter that area. For me, it's a short work to my office in the city. Compared to other budget hotels in the UK this is better... More

We booked this hotel through expedia secret hotels and were very pleasantly surprised. The room was well appointed, clean and quiet. The staff were very helpful and courteous. Our hot buffet breakfast was all that you would expect from a holiday inn. Because of its location in central London we were not expecting much due to previous experiences but this... More

Staying in Shoreditch

Neighborhood Profile
Shoreditch
The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well connected transportation links dotting its perimeter, along with an ever increasing variety of shops, hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighborhood. There's a lingering post-industrial grit about Shoreditch, but because it shares a border with “The City” financial district, the influence from its upscale neighbor can result in fascinating outcomes.
