“Good value and customer service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

The hotel is in a handy location for the main roads but there is not much else nearby. There is a large car park with free car parking, and although close to the roads I was not disturbed by any noise.

Staff were very friendly, efficient and helpful during my stay. They seem well organised which helps when wanting a quick check-out.

The rooms are the standard HIX set-up with all basic amenities provided.

Breakfast was also fine - a good continental selection plus a few hot options too.

Would recommend if you need a cheap hotel in the area.

Stayed in an executive double. Room and sheets clean, tidy, choice of pillows, plenty of towels and soup, shampoo, etc.
Bed very comfortable, and room was very quiet facing the carpark.
Have stayed before and will do again- this is an excellent base for being able to get around North London.

We stayed near the Heathrow airport in London in January and then we spent one night here so we could visit people we knew in the area. I have stayed here before and still found the place a bit tricky to get to. Its a good job the Sainsbury store is next to it.

Check in was quick and easy, plenty of parking, decent room and breakfast was slightly better than the HI Express I stayed in Edinburgh a few weeks earlier. For the price, good value.

Stayed here for the night last Sunday. Good value, helpful staff, free breakfast, which wasn't bad at all, free car park. Room was quiet (away from the N Circular!), clean - no complaints. Would stay here again!

Room Tip: At the end away from the North Circular - big main road.

Stayed here twice last year on business trips and was impressed with the quality, despite it being seen as a budget chain. Rooms were good size and comfortable, staff were friendly and helpful and there was a tasty breakfast buffet. Not too bad a location for trips to central London either, due to the relative proximity to Walthamstow Central station.

Room Tip: A room in the main block away from the A406 may be quieter.

Quite reasonably priced and only a few problems. Rooms were clean and quite small but acceptable. Free WiFi. Decent breakfast (actually pretty good, but three days in a row with no significant variation got old).

Had water heater problems on the 3rd day and so a lukewarm shower. They paid for our (short) cab ride to compensate, which seemed quite fair.

Phone was turned off (?!?) for some reason and we couldn't make some calls we needed until after the second time we asked the front desk what was wrong. Staff was helpful, but occasionally had accent/language problems.

Main areas were very nice indeed.

Many thanks for completing a review on this website. We are pleased to see that you enjoyed your stay with us.

I am sorry to hear that our Express breakfast choice was not up to your expectation during your stay. As part of a global brand we are required to maintain certain breakfast standards in all our hotels.

I would like to personally apologise for the inconvenience caused due to the shortfall in standards. I am pleased that we were able to offer you a satisfactory compensation.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Holiday Inn Express London Chingford in the near future.

A little bit far from London Center, but good transport connection. Bus stops were very close, and there was a huge Sansbury's supermarket near hotel, and petrol station. Room clean and cozy, everything what you need. Reception works 24h. Room service everyday. Flat TV, big bed plus there was a sofa, a little kettle, air cnditioner/heater, hair drier. One thing I didn't like - the mirror infront of the bed. And don't forget that english power plugs are different, better take adapter.
