Does exactly what it says on the tin.

Check in was efficient and quick. Friendly, but no unnecessary chat at the end of a long day.

Check out equally efficient - and no waiting!

Breakfast included - for £74 mid-week. Great value.

Room was warm, clean, a reasonable size.....

One thing I DO like about this chain is that there are always plenty of towels - unlike some.... Not just bathsheet and hand towel, there are extras.

Only thing I'd change - nicer toiletries. Don't mind the dispenser, but would prefer branded?

Fab!

Stayed for one night here at the Leeds City Centre Holiday Inn Express. Not quite in the city centre as such but still pretty convenient. Arrived by train at the main station and its about a 15 minute level walk. Simply turn left out of the station onto Wellington St and keep going. Its located just off the busy A65 with modern student and office accommodation surrounding it. Has its own car park. A Spar shop is a minutes walk from the entrance while nearby is a TGIs and a Chinese restaurant plus some casinos.
A warm welcome when checking in, my room was on the second floor overlooking the carpark.
Clean and with the usual Express furniture, the AC was efficient as was the free WIFI.
There is a small bar and a pleasant lounge with a limited evening menu available.
A good nights sleep on a comfortable bed it was very quiet.
Breakfast is included in all room rates with a decent cold selection plus a toaster and two or three hot items. Plenty of room to sit. There are also complimentary newspapers.
Checkout was efficient without being warm.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the car park will be quieter than those facing the main road.

Hotel staff were excellent and very helpful. It was also very well maintained and my room was clean. Good amount of desk space for working with a laptop and free wifi worked and was quite fast. Breakfast was well managed and there was a good selection. Front of house staff were extremely helpful and attentive. Would definitely stay there again.

In October, I was accommodated in the Holiday Inn Express, Leeds City Centre for 4 nights, my first visit to one of this brand. The "City Centre" name is stretching it a bit, as it is a 20 minute walk to the aforementioned City Centre! However, I was very pleasantly surprised. The hotel and the room offered basic essentials (including, my own measure of "acceptable", a box of tissues in the bathroom!), was clean, fresh and housekeeping was first class. The buffet breakfast is faithfully replicated at other "H.I. Express" locations in other cities and is simple and totally adequate. The Staff in Leeds were extremely helpful and guided me to the adjacent Convenience Store and the local Pub, which serves excellent food and beverages. Due to it's distance from the Centre, a simple dinner menu was available from the restaurant every evening for a restricted time. I found that the facilities were totally sufficient and reflected the best value for money that I have experienced in some time. I would recommend this Hotel to both my Colleagues and Friends, for business and leisure travel.

Room Tip: Sited in an industrial/student area, but I did not experience any extraneous noise or disturbance.

Good budget hotel with excellent breakfast thrown in. On site parking only£3.50 if you are a loyalty club member. Clean comfortable and within walking distance of the town centre....about a mile. Rooms could do with a choice of pillows but other than that very good.

Thank you for your review of our hotel and I’m pleased you enjoyed your stay. We should have a
choice of firm and soft pillows in the room and I wonder if the tags were missing on this occasion.
I apologise for this and thank you again for your comments.

The holiday inn express leeds is what you would expect from a holiday inn - clean, modern, comfy bed. Staff are friendly, and welcoming. Its called city centre, but is 20 min walk from town centre, with nothing around apart from a spar shop and lots of flats. The hotel overlooks a busy dual carriage way, so if you do not like traffic noise ask for a room not facing this. The company have changed their policy and now you have free wifi everywhere - which for a business traveller is welcomed.

Room Tip: Hotel overlooks busy dual carriage way, so ask for room on other side for a good nights sleep.
