Really pleasant well appointed and clean rooms. Good buffet breakfast. Good midday and evening food. Good range of wines. Last time I stayed it was for a conference (last... More

Bloomsbury is a fascinating part of London to stay in: multi-cultural and not far from the West End (Russel Square tube station is just around the corner). The staff at the hotel were all very welcoming and helpful, especially the concierge. The rooms are large but both rooms and bathrooms are in need of some tender, loving care. A particular... More

Used ihg points. Good location for Russell Square underground and nearby shops. Bedroom larger than expected but tired. Bathroom needed renewal. Useless air con. Staff at reception took ages to check us in at 11:15pm when we were tired. Holiday inn seem not to be investing in renewing bedrooms and bathrooms which is a shame given we were once very... More

Stayed for 2 nights, average GBP 220 for each night - 2 adults and 2 children (15 and 9 YO). Quite OK since we have to get only one room for our family, and breakfast was included. There's a sofa bed available for the kids. The hotel allowed us to check-in early (11 am) since the room was already available.... More

15 minute walk from Kings Cross in the rain is not ideal & the taxi driver "just round the corner mate" didn't help.Nice clean hotel, friendly staff. A bit soul-less & little atmosphere. Great breakfast,m, lift priorities not the best though.

not one of our usual choices for staying in london, but missus had some ihg points we could use. this hotel is in a good, reasonably central, location but, all-in-all, it's pretty average. nothing at all wrong with it. bedrooms are a bit pokey though. breakfast wasn't included, so can't comment on that.

We arrived early and our rooms weren't quite ready but we were able to drop off our luggage. When we returned there was a long queue at reception but they spotted us and simply came to the back of the queue with our room keys, saving us from having to wait. This set the tone for the rest of our... More

I have spent the last 10 days in London and tried two hotels - this one and the Hotel Russell. The Russell Hotel was by far superior. The Holiday Inn cost approx £220 per night (for a twin room - I'd have preferred a double, but it couldn't be changed) and had the cheek to debit £30 from my credit... More

We stayed for two nights whilst on our travels. The service upon check in by "Laura" Australian receptionist was excellent. She was very friendly and welcoming. We stayed in a standard room on the first night and an executive on the second night. Rooms are clean. We dined in the restaurant downstairs and were equally impressed with the service and... More

I live in the area but today was my first time dining in your hotel restaurant. The Italian lady with long black hair and the blond lady I think her name was kamilla were beautiful. Service and the food top class. On the other hand (is just my opinion ) they should improve the ambiance of the restaurant! Saying that... More
