With its dark interiors, saggy old carpets and suspect plumbing, London-hotels are seldom worth its price (at least not below 5 stars). @ Holiday Inn they apparently cater to non anglo-saxons since at least the interiors are light (white) and fresh and the bathroom does neither have a carpet and the plumbing works!!!
The lobby, breakfast and bar area are all in cool modern, somewhat minimalistic design which is refreshing after staying at typical London hotel with ostentatious/sullen receptions.
However it is all superficial (obviously not the light interior though). Door handles are loose, elevators ramshackle and the corridors a bit claustrophobic.
Staff proffessional (they usually are at those chains arent they) and location really good.
All in all it was an OK stay (better than the Bayswater tourist ghetto anyway) but I definitely wouldn't go out of my way to stay here.
