Stayed here last weekend. Our room was upgraded and we had a really nice time in London, thanks in large part to the hotel. Centrally located in Bloomsbury within an easy walk of everything in that area. The service was fantastic and the room was really comfortable, with bath and shower etc.

Stayed at the Holiday Inn for three nights in London. Although the staff wasn't particularly friendly or helpful, the hotel is in a great location and just feet away from the tube station. The hop on hop off bus stop is right around the corner and it's generally well located. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the wifi works... More

Stayed here for 4 nights with family and hubby. The rooms were really small, but average for the price we paid, and the location was quite good, close to a few of the major tube stations making it easy to get to places from. Breakfast was ok, typical English fry up.

We stayed here due to the proximity to St Pancras International Train a Station. We were apparently put in a refurbished room.. It was nice and clean but quite bland and distasteful. There was no safe or mini bar fridge. Since we paid with points we weren't too worried about the price but definitely would be a tad more annoyed... More

Close to multiple stations. Room was clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. Finally all staff - from cleaners, maintenance, restaurant and reception - were very welcoming and made every endeavour to make me feel comfortable.

I stay at the Holiday Inn Bloomsbury very frequently when in London for work. The staff are exceptionally helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms, especially the refurbished ones are great and room service arrives when they say it will. I would highly recommend it!

Nicely positioned between St Pancras station and the British Museum and 5 min walk to bus stop for Trafalgar Square. In house restaurant serves good meals but service is a little slow when dining with children. Reception staff are very helpful and rooms quiet.

Lucky enough to get this stay for just a small upgrade fee as we used IHG reward points for the night. Family room was fantastic, huge sofa bed for our son, plus our big bed and extras like water and chocolates. Had a high floor too so good view over rooftops to St Pancras. Staff very nice, concierge helped us... More
