Located near the Old Street underground station, this hotel offers easy & fast access to Central London and beyond. Modern rooms of modest dimensions, wonderful breakfast and very friendly staff. Excellent for families and businessmen alike.

It's a Holiday Inn Express so when you book you know this won't be the epitome of luxury, but for the money it's fine if a little basic. What you can't fault is the general cleanliness and excellent staff which some "better" hotels could learn from! And for my work, the location is superb so it's a good trade off.... More

The rooms were nice and clean and the breakfast was OK, but not more. The location is good with only two stop to Kings Cross/St. Pancras and within walking distance to for example the Liverpool Street Station area and Brick Lane (which overrated).

I am currently staying here approx twice a month at the moment and haven't really had any issues( there was once a small issue with check in however my company resolved this) Staff are friendly. Good location for Hoxton, Shoreditch and Moorgate as well as Old St. Lots of eateries, bars and grocer style shops in the area. I don't... More

The Holliday Inn is a nice average hotel in London. The rooms were very nice and comfortable and had a very roomy modern feel to them. Comfortable beds and modern bathrooms were very nice also. The Lobby of the Hotel feel very worn out and tired. Breakfast at the hotel is complimentary but its not very fancy. Hotel location is... More

My wife and I stayed for one night and found the hotel very comfortable with a pleasant atmosphere. Breakfast was included and this was for a full breakfast which was excellent since we had a full day ahead of us. Price was fantastic for both of us also.

Arrived late Friday evening as planned, checkin was swift and the staff were friendly and very helpful. Room was clean bright and looking like it was recently refurbished with nice fashionable decor and fittings. Bathroom was fresh, clean and modern. The only negative was the noise from outside which went on until the early hours which meant it was difficult... More

Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay. Unfortunately being a city centre hotel we do have a lot of passing traffic. Our Secondary glazing does block the majority of noise from the street out. More

We stayed in the Holiday Inn Express for two nights in April and found it to be very suitable for the corporate traveller. The name of the hotel is very appropriate as it ticks all the boxes for guests on business.The rooms we stayed in were a reasonable size, they were very clean with all required amenities. The rooms faced... 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.
