Extremely well run budget type hotel. Friendliest and most helpful staff I have come across in this category. Only let down is the cooked breakfast, which consisted of an inedible sausage, tasteless scrambled egg and baked beans. There was a fair choice of other items though. This is a fairly new hotel and everything is immaculate. Very convenient parking outside... More

My experience at this hotel was that it had terrible beds. More like bathtubs. It also did not have a fridge in the room or a safe. Except for the above it was otherwise comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location was good only about 200m from the train and bus. It was also overpriced.

Stopped for one night on business. A few mins walk from the train station. Arrived late evening and checked in quickly by friendly reception staff. One of the two lifts was out of service, so a bit of a wait for the other one which was working overtime to cope. Room quality was good and spotlessly clean. Powerful shower and... More

Took 3 goes to get into the room due to the access cards not working. Room OK, bathroom OK, breakfast was sufficient for me (cereal, DIY toast, coffee machines, orange juice machines) The lady in the breakfast room was really friendly, helpful and was constantly on the go cleaning tables/welcoming guest/making sure the food is all there.

The Holiday inn Express chain set good standards for room facilities, cleanliness and value. This hotel lives up to those standards and provided us with a comfortable stay in Wandsworth. The station is only five minutes walk and you can be in Waterloo for access to pretty much anywhere in London, within around twenty minutes. As mentioned in other reviews... More

However the cooked breakfasts did not look very good, The rest of the breakfast food was, however, good with a wide variety available.

Overall very good. We stayed here to visit Chelsea a Flower Show and the location was ideal. Wifi so unreliable. Hard to access even in public areas. Cooked breakfast awful was awful - reconstituted powdered egg, tough sausages and baked beans. Waiter Hazel was lovely.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Stay with us at the Holiday Inn Express London Wandsworth and enjoy a different side to capital life, South West side, the convenience of the city without all the hustle and bustle. It's only a 2 minute walk to Wandsworth Town train station; the train to London Waterloo from there only takes 12 minutes, its 3 minutes to Clapham Junction and 35 minutes to Gatwick Airport. If you're driving we do have onsite car parking too. We've just had an amazing refurbishment throughout the hotel and can't say enough how much of a difference you will see if you have stayed before. We have new Holidreamer beds in the fresh new guest bedrooms and our public areas feel more like your own living room than a hotel lounge. Of course there's free WiFi throughout the hotel and every guest can enjoy a free breakfast no matter what rate you book on. Talking of food, pick something tasty to eat from our new main menu, you don't have to eat out at Holiday Inn Express London Wandsworth. We have choices of pizza, curries, Italian dishes, panini's and more and our drinks menu has a variety of delicious wines from around the world to chose from. If you do chose to dine out, take your pick of excellent restaurants and bars along the Old York Road or by the River Thames. Close by there are walks of the River Thames, Kew Gardens and the Landmark Battersea Power Station, all this plus the local gems of Putney and Clapham. Guests visiting on their leisure time stay with us and visit London's top sporting venues including Chelsea's Stamford Bridge, Fulham Football Club, Wimbledon, The Oval and Twickenham, The Royal Albert Hall and not forgetting Earls Court Exhibition Centre. With easy access to the centre of London just on our doorstep, we regularly welcome business travellers, who tell us the location along with the free WiFi access is ideal for them. The hotel is also a great 'out of town' venue to hold small meetings, we can host up to 25 and have some great meetings offers available. Whatever your reason to stay we look forward to seeing you. ... more   less
