Neighbourhood
Shoreditch
The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well connected transportation links dotting its perimeter, along with an ever increasing variety of shops, hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighbourhood. There's a lingering post-industrial grit about Shoreditch, but because it shares a border with “The City” financial district, the influence from its upscale neighbour can result in fascinating outcomes.

Thank you for your feedback. As a Holiday Inn Express we do not have restaurant facilities on-site,. This is the same in the majority of Holiday Inn Express Hotels in the UK. Our prices are also very competitive for our location. It is also advisable to book in advance and directly on our website for the best deals.

We had a great stay. It’s your typical holiday inn express: small and fairly basic, but it’s very clean, well-maintained, and conveniently located. A ton of transportation choices, a grocery store next door. Several good places to eat around. Breakfast is standard and simple,

We arrived late in the evening, (Immigration took about 2 hours to get through) and we were tired and cold. Front desk immediately gave us our key. So in summary: Room : 4/5 Staff: 4/5 Location: 5/5 Breakfast: 4/5 All in all, had a blast for my first time in London.

The TV's have HDMI ports... but whether they are active or not is a different story ;-) I have found them to be disabled in some hotels... didn't try this one though.
