Decent hotel for decent price. I am glad they got rid of the smell in the corridors. The rooms are clean. Stuff is friendly and helpful. One thing they should improve is the breakfast. It is the same every morning and there are no vegetables only couple of fruits (banana and mandarin).

I stayed in this hotel with my wife and it is very good location because old street underground station is 5 min walk away, the area is very good specially for Asians because there are many Asian restaurants around and some shops stay late at night like the pizza shop and kebab shop, there are also bars around. The hotel... More

We stayed over the weekend for wireless festival, the staff couldn't be lovelier and more helpful. the room was very clean, modern, great bathroom - wet room. Breakfast was inclusive - great variety. Location wise, literally 2 mins from old street station, which connected to several lines. Lots of restaurants and night life options. I couldn't fault the place, great... More

I am a big fan of Holiday Inn Express. They tend to be modern, clean, and comfortable, and this location is within easy walking distance to the Tube. Delicious breakfast and coffee. The only caution I have is that it's not the best part of town if you're traveling with young kids.

We booked this hotel on Hotwire so it was a decent deal. The rooms were comfortable except that the A/C wasn't working in our room but the manager brought up a fan. The rooms were clean, well maintained and beds were comfortable. I did, however, feel very uneasy walking around outside the hotel with my family and teenage children. This... More

My wife and I went with five others to the hotel for three nights . The hotel is only about 15 minutes walk from Liverpool street station and has many restaurants close by. The rooms were clean and comfortable apart from the air condition being a bit noisy .Breakfast was good with a good variety to choose from. The bar... More

I found this place quite underwhelming compared to other Holiday Inns. It was comfortable enough, and clean enough. But there were some stains on the carpet, and the bathroom was tired and could have done with some regrouting. Perfectly functional, and very reasonably priced for the location, but not somewhere I will be rushing back to.

I stayed for 7 days, by myself, for business. The room was a really good size, very affordable for London, free breakfast not bad, great location for tech city & 2 minutes walk to Old Street Tube. There's not much light in the room so not great for applying makeup, and no proper wardrobe, just some limited hanging space. All... More

My daughter and I visited the Holiday Inn at Old Street from abroad during the last working week of June 2016. I picked the brand name Holiday Inn as "you know what you're getting". All staff encountered were effective, knowledgable, and friendly. That created a warm atmosphere - which made a great difference. The room was pleasant, scrupulously clean, with... More

Neighborhood Profile
Shoreditch
The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well connected transportation links dotting its perimeter, along with an ever increasing variety of shops, hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighborhood. There's a lingering post-industrial grit about Shoreditch, but because it shares a border with “The City” financial district, the influence from its upscale neighbor can result in fascinating outcomes.
