I stayed in this hotel for one night on business. Holiday inn expresses are all so familiar - it is comforting, but they tend to merge into each other. The room is basic, and is as other HIE rooms are - clean and functional, but the bathroom was a bit tired looking. Everything worked, including the internet (which is free...

If you are running the London marathon next year here are my top tips: do at least one 22 mile run in training; carb up beforehand; stay at this Holiday Inn - but book well in advance. I booked in July 2011 for the April 2012 race. Rooms in hotels nearer the start and finish lines were already full or...

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights with my friends. We received 2 rooms with separate beds. This was very comfortable. The hotel and the rooms look clean and well kept. BUT - The rooms are a bit small for 2 persons with 2 big suitcases and there is no wardrobe to put the clothes and no safe in...

We booked Holiday Inn Express because of its very convenient location (Luton & Stansted airport buses stop in front of the hotel) and the good reviews here and we weren´t disappointed. Of course, being a typical chain-hotel, it lacks typical British atmosphere, but the modern building is new, clean and well-maintained. Members of staff were all friendly and efficient. The...
