“Convenient and good value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013 via mobile

Second time staying in this hotel while visiting family in Leeds. Rooms were clean and comfortable. We were on the sixth floor overlooking the car park and it was very quiet on both nights. Breakfast is adequate with a selection of hot foods, toast, cereals and juice with tea/coffee and the breakfast room/lounge is comfortable and very clean. It only takes about 15 minutes to walk into the city centre so very convenient and great value for money.

Stayed November 2013, traveled with family

The location of this hotel is pretty convenient; a short, cheap cab ride from the station if the weather is bad, or you can simply walk it if conditions permit. Staff are polite and friendly, and the rooms are pretty basic, a good size, with a well sized bathroom (the shower is particularly roomy). My bed was comfortably firm and the room was air conditioned.

Breakfast is free but nothing special (in particular, there aren't any hot options for vegetarians apart from beans and eggs). Concentrate fruit juice and coffee from a machine accompany the breakfast. In the reception area there's a bar and a cold case stocked with sandwiches and snacks for sale.

There's free WIFI for the first 24 hours, but it's pretty slow. Alternatively, you can buy a voucher for a slightly faster connection; the prices weren't too expensive but weren't really all that cheap either.

The only real issue I encountered here was my fellow guests. Upon arrival, I noticed a beercan just lying against the wall near the lift, which looked pretty, well, skanky. Furthermore, between 2am and 4am on my first night I was repeatedly woken by evidently inebriated adults literally running around the corridors shouting. I realise this isn't the hotel's fault, but at the same time, you'd think they'd keep closer tabs on what guests are doing in public areas around the hotel at that hour.

I was attending a local music festival at the university that this hotel was well located for. If I go again next year I will probably stay here again.

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.
