We stayed at the Express Holiday Inn for one night at the end of July. As soon as we arrived the staff were very friendly, helpful and happy to chat to us. Our double room was clean, tidy and had everything we needed, although we could have done with more coffee, sugar and milk but I'm sure these would have... More

We stayed for one Saturday night in late July 2014. We arrived later in the evening and got a nice welcome. Check-in was speedy having booked everything via their website. We had to drive and parked the car in the hotel car park which is small - maybe 20 spaces including disabled spaces. There were only two spaces left and... More

If being closer to central London is not a priority then this hotel is convenient to Westfield mall for shopping and eating. Transport links are good with trains, buses and underground nearby. Rooms are very basic and beds quite hard. Breakfast can be congested if the hotel is full. You get what you pay for….3 stars.

I used to travel a lot but in London it was my first stay. The hotel was quiet and clean, Wi-Fi for two devices. Staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel was located 30 min from the city center but it did not mind to me. What’s concerning breakfast – the same menu every day so it was quite misery... More

Been there numerous time for business trip. one of the best location when travelling to London. Located right beside the huge mall with lots of eatery. And just next to Stratford station which is convenient. Pricing is reasonable also compare to Central London.

Stayed a couple of nights in a quite small but comfortable room that was quiet and clean. As others have noted, breakfast is basic, and you should be aware that the advertised free WiFi is very limited. The hotel location is OK, but the surrounding streets do not offer much more than small convenience stores and a bingo club. More... More

IF you get a good rate then this hotel is OK. When booking don't get it confused with the Holiday Inn above the Westfield Stratford shopping centre, this is a good 10-15 minute walk from the Stratford Shopping centre and transport links! Reception was pleasant and no dramas, the staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms are compact but not... More

never had any problems staying at the holiday inn express. They always give you a good sized room and bath room and really helpful staff.

Just short of £200 b&b, for a budget hotel is ridiculous!! That out of the way it's clean, nice sized rooms and this one has its own meal offer in the evening. Breakfast is the standard HIE experience so miserable sausages to accompany beans and scrambled eggs. If you pay £200 surely they can afford a better sausage?! Bar open... More
