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

My wife and I stayed here for a few night, to get over jet lag before moving on to staying with relations. The hotel is reasonably priced, modern, clean and comfortable if basic. It is very well situated for the Tube and buses and is close to supermarkets and a huge range of shops on the busy Finchley Road. Our... More

We stopped here for five days in July and had an excellent stay. The staff are brilliant, helping to rearrange our rooms and offering to move our luggage whilst we looked around London. Exceptional service, lots of help and guidance. The food is typical HI Express breakfast .... Enough to get you through the day. The eating area and food... More

This hotel is an excellent Holiday Inn property, great location across the street from the O2 Shopping Center and only a 1 minute walk to the Finchley Road tube station. Only 3 or 4 stops on the tube and you are in the center of London. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms are a bit small but well... More

We picked this hotel as it was located between central London and Wembley Stadium and turned out to be an excellent choice. Finchley Road tube station is only a couple of minutes walk down the road and has you in central London in 10-15 mins. Wembley Stadium is one stop away on the Metropolitan line (or 6 stops on the...

I stayed here with my mum for 2 nights at the start of July. My mum has been to this hotel several times and thoroughly recommended it so thought I would give it a try. So glad we chose to stay here rather than a more expensive place in central London! The location is great, situated on a busy road... More

I have stayed here multiple times since opening. The rooms are clean and well maintained. The hotel is always busy with a range of people from all over the world, families, business people, visitors to the Royal Free. The common areas are immaculate, and the staff are professionally presented. Right across from the O2 centre, on the jubilee line--easy to... More
