Average hotel with all the basic amenities. The room was a typical holiday inn room, we did have a clogged sink but it wasn't a major issue. Stayed on a higher level floor so there was a nice view of the city. Location wise it's right next to the tube so you can get just about anywhere and there is... More

I stay in London most weeks and this is one of my stock hotels. On the plus side it is in a great location and they serve a good selection of real ale at the bar. There is a Boris Bike stand a short-distance from the hotel and I always seem to be able to either get a bike in... More

I would like to have given this hotel good reviews based on overall area and location but an incident has made me do otherwise. On a plus note we arrived on Friday morning and the hotel let us check in early. The rooms were small but adequate and the bar was nice. On a more serious and negative note however,... More

My room on the 17th floor had great views of London. It was convenient to the Circle and District Lines, and would have been to the Piccadilly Line except that line was not stopping at the Gloucester Road station (closest) during my visit, and will not until December 2014. There is a small refrigerator and Waitrose and Tesco Express grocery... More

spend a short weekend in London taking part in Festival of Choirs at Royal Albert Hall, hotel was easy to find, reception allowed trip organiser of block booking to allocate room keys which saved hours of queuing. Good location for walking to points of interest. Bar staff accommodated short communal sing-off between Finish and Welsh Choir members after return from... More

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Forum on business, and I must say I would never stay in this place ever again. Small room with a huge bed, no room for anything else. I believe if I wanted to pay luxury rates, I would have stayed at the Connaught. This accommodation was a disgrace for the prices that were charged.... More

We were booked into this hotel by our tour company when visiting London and were not disappointed, although the hotel was not our favorite. The room was good sized by European standards though we were a bit cramped by the use of the sofa bed. Had that not been necessary, it would have been quite roomy. Breakfast was good and... More

Thank you so much for your review and for your very kind words! As you mentioned, we're located in a super convenient location just steps away from the best shopping, dining, and nightlife, and not to mention the museums which are so close by. Thank you again for your flattering review, we're looking forward to welcoming you back again soon.... More

Good location! Friendly staff! Hotel was full so an early check in was not possible. Free WiFi in lobby while waiting for a room. Rooms and bathrooms are small which is typical for most hotels in London. Starbucks in lobby for coffee lovers.
