Booked this hotel in 2020 and now this week only to be cancelled and transferd to crowne plaza for @ maintenance work”. Same excuse in august 2020 as now bit suspicious i think. Crown plaza is a nice hotel but the walk from kings cross to there is a bit shady with my 10 year old with too many dogy characters floating about which scared my child. This will most likly be the last time i ever book with holiday inn when i visit london sadly

Hotel was in a nice location with nice restaurants around the area and just in general a nice vibe. The bed was comfortable but it wasn't amazing in terms of decor and breakfast. I think the rooms could be modernised a little bit

The hotel is not far from old street tube station and about a 5 min walk. The hotel is basic but has what you need for a short stay. My room looked out onto the street which was a bit noisy. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice. Overall a good basic short stay hotel. I would return again.

I stayed 5 days at the Holiday Inn express in old street. This is a buzzing location is great for trendy, Restaurants, bars and nightlife. Close by there a underground table tennis venue and bar which is a great place to meet with your friends. The hotel itself was nothing to write home about, but the bed was comfortable and there was a working area with free WiFi in the room. I was a bit disappointed there wasn’t a gym. One of the lifts were out of service, it seems for quite a while. So long wait in the morning. Breakfast was included and consists of sausage, bacon and scrambled eggs and baked beans. A choice of cereals, toast, mini muffins and coffee machine. A coupe of Healthy options too. Quality of the food wasn’t great, orange juice was more like a diluted squash. Overall this is a reasonable no frills hotel in a good local with rooms at pretty good standard.
