We were in London for the weekend and decided to stay at the Holiday Inn as I am an IHG member. First impressions of the entrance and reception were very good and we were checked in very efficiently. We made our way to the room and assumed that we would be put into the IHG members rooms only to find... More

Checked in early Monday morning after "redeye" flight from U.S. (paid for night prior to my arrival). Asked for quiet room and was given room on second floor next to elevator bank. Between elevators and A/C units outside the room -- it was definitely NOT quiet. Tried to sleep, but was awaken by housekeeping manager an hour later checking to... More

Me, my husband and 3 children stayed in this hotel for the night on the 18th August. We were warmly greated by a lovely lady on the reception desk, who checked us in with no problems at all. We then turned to get into the lift to go to our room and were greated by another lovely member of staff... More

I booked the hotel due to how close it was to the underground at Russell square. The hotel was clean, modern, the staff were great. Breakfast is very very busy but the staff were there if anything was needed and coffee and tea was being pored when ever it was required. Full english breakfast, bread, and all the other usuals...

Having stayed here before a few years ago and had trouble with my check in, i thought the Holiday Inn may have improved, however it had not. We arrived at the designated check in time to be told our room would not be ready for another hour, we confirmed with the lady at the desk that we would have a... More

Easy to get to from the airport on the tube (subway). Just take the Russell Square station. The location is really convenient. There is a little outdoor mall right next door. It is right on the cuss of the west end. The rooms are standard size for London which would be a little small for Americans. but they were fairly... More

What can I say - it's a Holiday Inn in London. The room was really clean and comfortable and just what we needed for a one night stay. The bathroom was tiny for a couple sharing but we managed. There is also a great pub opposite with a large selection of real ales. The one downside was when we checked... More

I had a short five day visit to London and picked Holiday Inn for it's good location in Bloomsbury. All the great shops and restaurants in Soho are near by. Best of all you can easily take the metro from Heathrow to the Russell Square and the hotel is just stone throw away from the station. You don't even need... More

I've stayed at this hotel a number of times in the last few years and I can't fault it. The rooms are comfortable and have tea & coffee making facilities, cable TV and a hairdryer. The location is ideal for getting around London as it's close to Russell Square tube station and about 10 minutes walk from Euston Station. The... More
