“OK...Not excellent, but not horrible. Right in the middle.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

The lobby is somewhat newer and the staff was very friendly. The hallways seem a little rundown to me and unfortunately I was only able to get a room with 2 single beds. My room was very cold and no matter what I would do to the thermostat, the temperature didn't increase. The room was large and clean but lacks storage and the typical hotel room package describing the available facilities you get at other hotels (i.e. laundry, TV channels, gym, room service, etc). I would call this an average hotel. My chance of returning is 50/50.

Room Tip: Try to get a room away from King Street as the street noise can be fairly loud at night.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent experience at the hotel. I am pleased to note that you found the lobby welcoming and staff friendly during your stay with us. As part of our investment program for 2013, guestroom corridors will be given a facelift to make it more welcoming. We do take guest feedaback seriously and have put measures in place to pre-warm the room by leaving the heating unit on to ensure room is warm on arrival.

We look forward to wlecoming you back to the hotel in the near future.

Yours Sincerely,

Sub Iyer
General Manager

Great location if you want to visit the Hammersmith Apollo and nice and close to a tube station. Reception staff were friendly and the included buffet breakfast has lots of choice. I wouldn't hesitate to use it again when the weather was warm but we stayed when the temperature was zero degrees outside and the room (as mentioned by another reviewer) was very cold upon arrival. It only had a small wall heater and this took ages to raise the temperature even though we put it on the highest temperature, hopefully the hotel can do something about this on exceptionally cold days and then we will be happy to return whatever the weather.

I discovered this hotel in December 2012 and have stayed there on four business trips, including five nights in January 2013 and have already booked to return later this month and in March. Clearly I am very pleased with it. First and foremost it is incredibly clean and the staff are anxious to please. There is an excellent unlimited buffet breakfast - Continental or English - which sets you up for the day and is speedily available from very early in the morning. Check out is fast living up to the "Express" description which is not observed in all hotels I have stayed in. On one occasion I hadn't figured out how to access the digital radio part of the TV and the friendly manager went out of his way to show me. I love a pristine bathroom with a ready supply of shampoo/soap via two dispensers and that is provided. The hotel is a short walk from Hammersmith station and there are good pubs nearby, including one next door, and the Swan a few yards from the Tube station, at the top of Kings Road, which provide good food, including in the Swan an absolutely excellent fish and chips. I attend Mass daily and 8 am Mass is celebrated at St Augustine's Fulham Palace Road a short walk away. There is an Internet facility near Reception which gives you 20 mins for £1 and a kiosk where you can buy a nice chocolate snack to go with the free tea/coffee in your room. There is a microwave also in reception where you can heat milk and the "i" Independent newspaper is available free all day and you can watch BBC rolling news in the breakfast room. I have been pleasantly surprised by this hotel and could not recommend it more highly.

We stayed here for a family break we found the hotel to be excellent helpful and friendly. Our only minor criticism would be that the rooms are a little small. The location of this hotel is excellent close to the bus and tube station. Buy an Oyster card before you travel for convenience.

I would highly recommend anyone who is going to stay in London to stay in this hotel. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, no job was too big! The hotel is absolutely spotless you can see your reflection in every surface. They supply items you might forget like toothbrushes, shaving foam and razors free of charge. The rooms were so comfortable, the adjustable heating was brilliant we could set the temperature to our liking. complementary breakfast a well laid out buffet gave us a good start to the day. Over all we will definitely be back to the Holiday Inn Express.

thanks again guys

I booked this Hotel through the IHG owners association with Platinum membership. As a IHG property owner I received none of the perks as stated in the terms. It didn't worry me but it might worry some. What did annoy me was the fact the hotel which operates 24hrs does not offer a simple wake up call, surely that is not an unreasonable request?
The room I had was clean and tidy but was freezing cold. I fiddled with the air con/ heating unit what ever I pressed it still blowed out cold air I gave up in the end.
I didnt stay for breakfast as I was up early and gone.
The Hotel is pretty much in the middle of Kings Road not far from Hammersmith Tube Station if your driving to it and you blink you could well miss the entrance ( as did my taxi driver).
I would stay here again as it is close to where I was going, otherwise I'm sure there are better IHG propertys out there.
