Spent four nights here! And I would find it hard too find a fault. Given a quiet room, away from the traffic. Staff we're very polite and helpful, check in and out was quick and easy. Breakfast was self service and consisted of a hot platter and or continental style. Thank you to all of the staff who dealt with... More

This hotel is very nice, comfortable, clean and has a very friendly staff. Better yet, it's not expensive and is well located near an Underground station (Finchley Road on the Jubilee line) and the 82 bus. There's also a small mall with a supermarket across the street. Breakfast was not lavish but nice. Rooms have AC. I stayed there 3... More

We had an enjoyable stay at this hotel. Rented two rooms for four nights while visiting London. Access to the city via the Tube is a cinch! Buy yourself an Oyster card and off you go!! Front desk staff were friendly although some had trouble with English. Breakfast was hearty...often crowded and not a lot of variety but decent. There... More

Most importantly, the staff was consistently rate 5 our of 5 stars. Everyone bent over backwards to make our stay enjoyable. We had a family room, it was tight, but very clean. The fold out bed was a bit uncomfortable, but given the price and location well worth the slight discomfort. Breakfast was very crowded on the weekend and manageable... More

Booked 2 rooms at this hotel for our sightseeing trip to London. Was not disappointed, as a base to sleep it was just what we needed. The rooms are newly decorated and are bright and airy, we had a double room which had a king size bed and a twin room, both overlooking the car park at the back (I... More

Be advised to check in early or pre book an internal room. On the 6th floor the road noise was horrendous. They even provide ear plugs but thats hardly comfortable and pops out easily. Then there is the problem of blue outdoor lights. These wall lights light up the hotel from outside at night like a christmas tree all year... More

What a brilliant hotel, great location ( easily accessible to the tube and central london), and really friendly and helpful staff. I was warmly welcomed as a platinum rewards club member, the room was well maintained and the breakfast was a very acceptable HIE offering.

I stay at this hotel fairly regularly on my trips to London and it never disappoints. The standard is consistently high-spotlessly clean, bright airy feel, very friendly and helpful staff- and is excellent value for money in a famously expensive city. They say they are rated among the top ten Holiday Inn Express hotels in the UK and it is... More

Hotel is an excellent value. 5 minute walk to the underground. The rooms were very clean and modern, sheets were pure white and the comforter was awesome to snuggle into. I was on the 4th floor overlooking Finchley Road and I slept very comfortably for 9 nights. Excellent breakfast. Internet did go out twice during my stay, and having to... More

Needed a hotel in London to get ready for/recover from a family wedding. This was ideal. Friendly helpful staff, spotless comfortable room with air conditioning and free wifi and a wonderful breakfast. Ideally positioned for the tube and bus stops, local shops and restaurants. Just a short taxi ride from Marylebone station. Would have loved a couple of extra nights... More
