This hotel is conveniently situated near to Old Street tube station (follow the Shoreditch signs as you come out. The decor isn't battered, but looks a little tired in places in the bedroom. Bathroom has a nice big walk in shower and looks newly fitted. Hairdryer and tea making facilities come as standard. Use your room key in the slot... More

Very nice hotel, conveniently located. Staff were very friendly and helpful, everything was exceptionally clean and well presented. Choice of soft or hard pillows, free WiFi, free breakfast, free late check out and luggage storage all for joining the Priority Club so excellent value.

Was there on a 2 night stay. Hotel is well sited being only 4 minutes walk from nearest Underground station ( Old Street ). Found HIE to be clean with friendly and helpful staff, offering wifi in rooms (although you need to log in now and again ) and a good and plentiful breakfast. Room was comfortable, although it could... More

This hotel is never going to excel. Whilst it is in a very good location within easy reach of the City of London there is absolutely nothing to write home about and very little that you will remember about it after your stay. It is worth mentioning that what this hotel lacks in facilities it makes up for with its... More

This hotel is exactly what you expect from a HIE,the room was large and well equipped but full of builder's muddy footprints. Prices are cheaper than central London but still very high, I paid 190 pounds for one night, rack rate is more than 300 pounds! Anywhere else in the world a rip-off but this is London. Parking at 30... More

The room was spacious with a big desk but very cold, the air conditioning was central and not working properly or just set on "cost saving" mode. I called 3 times- the only solution was a small heater. A very uncomfortable stay for quite a high cost. A very basic breakfast . Good and lively area cloose to trendy Shoreditch

The management seems to be taking advantage of the location. Barely clean, ageing amenities. Staff, although helpful, is not particularly efficient. Prices do not reflect the quality but only location. Free wifi internet? Not in your room. Very bad reception on all devices and all floors. I've stayed here 7 times across the past 3 years (purely due to the... More

Let me start by saying that the HI is not a bad hotel - but it is also nothing special and does nothing specific that you remember and can therefore say it is "good"'. In summary Checkin: friendly, fast, efifcient.Good start Rooms: typical holiday Inn, nothing wow, but comfortable enough. Saying that they are quite small. Bathroom: Poorly lit, presumably... More

I stay in Holiday Inn Expresses all the time and I now they aren't luxurious but usually comfort and offer a pleasant stay. I wouldn't say this hotel does anything wrong it just isn't more than average. It has fewer TV channels than other HIExpress hotels which when you're staying for several nights is a little disappointing. My biggest bug... 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.
