I stayed in this Holiday Inn Express for one night. It is conveniently located; about two minutes by foot from Finchley Road Tube Station. Although it cannot be described as an inner London hotel, Finchley Road is only one stop away from Baker Street on the Metropolitan line. Baker Street is a major transport hub for the subway network and...

Becoming my regular stop over location when wishing to reduce my commuting. Room at the rear quiet and comfortable with everything you need for a good night's sleep. Shower room has separate door closure for WC. Pleasant breakfast room with a limited hot buffet and cold items. The staff are friendly and efficient and always look after me well. Prices...

We stayed here first weekend in December mainly because it was very close to our coach drop off. We found the staff very friendly and efficient, the room was spotless and the bed very comfortable. We overlooked the Finchley Road and so had traffic noise all night. Didn't bother me but some may not like it. Breakfast was basic and...

The hotel is definately centrally located with the underground station just 5 mins away walking. But i did not enjoy the stay. The rooms and too small and the service is not upto the mark. I expected more from the brand name like holiday inn. The hotel is more of convenience than anything else.

This is the third time I have stayed in this hotel. I have been more than satisfied each time. It is very reasonably priced, the rooms are very comfortable, the breakfasts are good, the evening meal very good value for money and the staff could not be more pleasant and helpful. A nice little touch is that earplugs are supplied...

This is the third HIEX I've used in London, the others being Canning Town and Greenwich. All three have been good but this is the best location for sight seeing. It's within zone 2 on the underground and only 2 minutes walk from Finchley Road tube station. Jubilee or Metropolitan lines take you straight into central London. Going the other...

Centrally located and nearby restaurants and shopping, not in the heart but pretty close by tube. Guess you pay for location because the room is pretty basic for the price. Room included the standard buffet breakfast (so so). The bed was not as comfy as would have expected, liked the tea/coffee service to make your own, bathroom was clean ---...

Dear Belhome004, Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to express your thoughts and concerns. I am pleased to know that our location was convenient for your needs and that you found our bathroom clean. On the other hand, it is disheartening to know that you found our beds, not to your liking and the noise issues....

We had a really good deal for a 2 night family stay. Staff exceptionally helpful. Breakfast ok filled us up. Our room faced the road so was a bit noisy however because we had walked London it didn't effect our stay. Great location and superb deal. All in all good

I went 3 times in the Holiday Inn Express on Finchley Road and stayed each time for 3 nights. You get what you want. Nothing fancy, but comfortable and warm. The breakfast is ok, nothing special. I like it for business but would probably not go with the kids.

This hotel is usual at the top of our list when it comes to staying in London. We have always felt the staff is good when it comes to customer service, with nothing too much trouble. Convenient and reasonably price with a free breakfast - what more do you want?!
