Reviewed October 29, 2012

just stayed at this hotel when i arrived there was problem with power also problem with hotel stating ample car parking which was not the case as park full and had to park on street
during night there was a complete failure of power and the staff did not seem to know what to do there was no emergency lights so place in total darkness
on checking out many people complaining but attitude of staff was what could they do when pointed out the safety aspect if there was an emergency they just comment nothing they could do

otherwise this hotel is clean and rooms are good size some of front desk staff good maybe this was just a once off problem if so would suggest the management train the staff how to handle this type of problem and put the customer first

Especially on for a Saturday night stay early booking saves you pounds. The rooms are clean and offer a quiet comfortable night's sleep. Just off the North Circular with its own free parking it is very convenient for visiting north London. This stay our breakfast was fine and the hot food delicious but in the past when eating after 09:00 it has been rather tired. Although the hotel has a WIFI facility this is a pay per hour system.
The staff are generally friendly compared with many London hotels.

Stayed here for 4 days with my daughter. The only down side is the location: you have to take a bus to get to the nearest underground station, but they do run quite often. Also, no restaurants near by (bus again). The hotel is spotless clean, breakfast is ok (don't take eggs and sausages...not very nice), very good rates for London.

Stayed here for a week as a family of four, and while we only used the room at night time, it was a very pleasant stay and i would definitely come here again. The room was a little small and not enough wardrobe space but it was spotless. The breakfast was just what I would expect from a holiday inn and considering the price of the room , it was really good value for money. The staff were always pleasant and very helpful. Our room was on the road side but when the windows were closed you couldn't hear a thing. Bus stop right outside the hotel made it very convenient to get wherever you are planning to go to. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Stayed for 2 nights 20 & 21 September 2012. What a pleasant place. The rooms very clean but basic with hardwired and wifi Internet Access, free for 1 hour. Bathroom really good and efficient use of 1 door. Breakfast was quite good but the scrambled eggs did not look very appetising, the dinning room very nice and clean but beware of the staples under the seat when moving the chair closer to the table. Outside the hotel there is a bus stop and if you take either bus, 82 or 460, and change at Golders Green station and then catch the 13 you can get right into Piccadilly Circus of Trafalgar Square.
But back to the Hotel. Situated on the North Circular but no noise in the room. Customer Service is fine and the staff very friendly. There is a Bar but I did not use it. There is a courtesy Car Park at the rear but not very big. I will certainly stay here again on my next visit to the Smoke..

Room Tip: My room on the first floor faced Finchly Road and was quiet enough.

Staying here for the second time this year, we were pleased to see that a 'hot breakfast' option has now been introduced. Golders Green is a typical Holiday Inn Express with all the usual facilities and high standard of cleanliness.
Our room was on the road side and over the bus stop - suprisingly we were not bothered by road noise, although we did keep the windows shut.
We travelled into the City using both the bus and tube. The bus from outside the hotel takes around 45 minutes straight through but can take considerably longer if travelling at peak times. The nearest tube station is Finchley which is considerably quicker. A £7.50 day travel card is very good value, covering the tubes and buses, if you intend to do some sightseeing.
The hotel parking is free. As with most hotels wi-fi is chargeable which seems unfair when most pubs, restaurants & shopping malls can provide this service free.
Overall a good choice if not wishing to pay City Centre prices.
