The location of this hotel is really good, very close to the Old Street metro station. The rooms are quite large compared with London standards, clean and comfy. However it's not that practical for a longer stay since there's no wardrobe, just 4 clothes hangers that you can use. There's free Wi-Fi and a free mobile phone with a data...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 23 March 2017

Great location, just a short walk from Old Street tube - check in was efficient and friendly. Twin room was good size with a comfortable bed, and the bathroom was a decent size & nice big shower. Breakfast was fine, it's what I would call a limited buffet offering, but no complaints about the quality or quantity of food on...

I have stayed at this hotel many times and always find the staff most helpful and accommodating. The reception staff are first class and take the trouble to deal with you most efficiently.

Basic but conveniently located hotel when visiting London for work. Good sized room, quiet and comfortable. Basic breakfast but you just know what to expect with Holiday Inn Express, no surprises. Location good for some interesting bars and restaurants around Horton Square.

Thank you for your feedback. FYI - All Holiday Inn Express Hotels in the UK are changing their breakfast offering which will be great news for all ours guests - Bacon is finally coming, along with some other great products.

We booked the holiday inn express to be near where our daughter was having a photo shoot, no other reason, reasonably priced and close to where we needed to go. Breakfast was included so as we had stayed at other holiday expresses we thought that was another plus. How wrong. No bacon. No mushrooms no proper breakfast. I asked where...

Thank you for your feedback. Let me try and explain about Bacon to you...

I stayed in London overnight before something at the Barbican Centre, and managed to find a good deal for this hotel, GBP65 -- only around GBP10 more than I would expect to spend at an independent "budget" hotel. The location is great; around 5 minutes from Old Street tube, and with lots of restaurants around, both along Old Street and...

Stayed here on business last week, my company was charged over £300 per night for the room, which is not cheap. I was first of all allocated a room with a pull down bed; the bed was so hard I went to reception to complain. The hotel changed my room, but there was a lot of waiting around for it...

I stayed at this hotel for 10 nights on an extended business trip. Hotel is located near Shoreditch area (5 mins walk from Old Street tube station) with plenty of pubs/eateries located nearby.

The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. The room I stayed in was comfortable and quiet, bathroom with enough space, always tidy and clean. The breakfast area was always busy but, the food was constantly refilled and fresh. Thanks for having me and I would definitely come back if I'm ever in London!

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
