My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights while we attended a music festival at Hyde Park. The location is excellent for tube access (a 2 minute walk) and we were able to be in central London via two tube trains within around 25 minutes. Facilities are good, the rooms are more than adequate, good sized bathrooms (shower only)... More

Would be a good improvement for there to be a small area of good grass for pets to use. In this area dirt areas have a lot of puncture vine and the heads puncture and poison the little and big doggies feet!!

I had booked parking for the day but was not told when booking it was in fact for the night, as we were informed that we needed to move the car in the morning. I had no option but to pay for another days parking. I find that some of the Holiday Inn Expresses are franchised out and that the... More

Regarding traffic noise this is something subjective; as... More

Overheated building, insultingly inedible breakfast, disabled HDMI socket, dirty cups left in room, one sanitary towel bag and two tea bags per double room. Management needs to stay at a Mama Shelter.

I prefer using IHG hotels wherever I can- simply because the quality and service is consistently always good (and of course I get the priority club points…). It's no secret that London hotels are pricey. This hotel has and ideal location, with brilliant transport links- overground, thameslink and underground. A41 links direct to the M1 and north circular.

Near the tube and easy to get to from M1. Was a lovely hotel and breakfast is included in your room rate which is always a bonus. Staff couldn't do enough to help and were very child friendly and orientated. Only downside is lack of parking, but there is room to do set downs and pick up, and there is... More

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
