I've stayed here a couple of times now, the Holiday Inn chain are generally good value so for London City and access to Old Street, Shoreditch and Hoxton it's ideal. There's plenty of restaurants and bars/pubs nearby so you're spoilt for food and drink choices in this location. The bathroom was clean and pleasant, just what you expect from the... More

A convenient 15-20 minute walk to the City, 4 minutes to Old Street tube station, and smack dab in the middle of Shoreditch/Hoxton nightlife. So the location is great. But as the name suggests, there are no pretensions here -- zero style, and there's coffee/tea in the rooms, but no refrigerators, minibars, or even irons. The breakfast is... well, adequate... More

Ok, so, here goes. The room when I arrived was dirty. there were weird pink sticky stains on the carpet. The walls are totally transparent to noise. you hear everything that goes on in the next room. assume they hear you too. there is no cupboard and no drawers- so- leave your things in your suitcase. you also hear people...

Holiday Inn Express continue to improve the brand with this modern hotel on the edge of the city which also seems busy at weekends. Rooms are well appointed and looked clean and fresh. Staff were friendly and breakfast good and despite being fairly full, the hotel was very peaceful. If you need somewhere to stay around this location, this is... More

Location is just great, only 5-10 min walk to underground station where from you can access everywhere! Internet in the room was fast, only some problems with company laptop due to registration system. Breakfast was very small and poor. Very modern and nice hotel but price/night was way way to high.

overall good, better breakfast than many similar hotels. Location was close to a tube station (Old Street). Stayed with a group of friends that enjoyed the night life nearby. A bit loud, but it is a hotel in the middle of the city. Rooms were modern and comfortable. There was a pullout couch that was actually comfortable. Wifi was okay,... More

After booking, I was somewhat apprehensive about the air con reports but I wanted a decent quality safe hotel with 24 hour reception as I was staying with my teenage daughter. We had two nights over the October half term and overall, it was just great. A few mins to the tube, Sainsburys across the road, usual smart twin en... More

We had a great stay here, the staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. Had a great nights sleep.some noise from outside but you are staying in a city and it wasn't enough to keep us awake or disturb us. Breakfast was good, would have liked to see some bacon but didn't... More

Of course, the quality of the hotel is good, but it is a strange thing to go personally for a meal in the restaurant,usually I am ordering a pizza to the room for other hotels.The service could be nicer. Therefore,I estimate the average quality.
