Holiday Inn Express London-Limehouse
Travel Blogs from London
Shane says; I've just completed my first week in London. We were trying to lay low and not spend much money, so I haven't seen many of the sights. We did go to the Portabello road Market which was pretty nice. It is not far from Notting Hill and that side of town seems pretty cool. We also passed George Orwell's house on the way. The market star...London, England, United Kingdom shanemilli
Hi all! Just wanted to drop a line to let you all know how things have been progressing. Not much has changed, I have been to a few induction ceremonies and social mixers, but they just told me what I already knew--this is going to be tough and valuable. Entries recently have been sparse as Naomi was flying out yesterday. We got a good amount of...London, England, United Kingdom mr.bernier
In London I walked around for a while looking for the station, where the
buses to Oxford would leave. When I finally found it I put my backpack
into the bus and wanted to get on the bus. After the driver saw my
ticket he took my luggage and put it back on the streets. He told me
that I couldn't take this bus, because my ticket sa...
Time finally ran out for the most unorganised couple in England and miraculously we made it down to Heathrow for the first flight in a series on a Global Escapade Ticket (GET) from London to New York. The flight itinerary (as it stands at the moment) is: 9th July 2008 - London to New York (on GET) 3rd September 2008 - Los Angeles to Miami (Not o...London, England, United Kingdom kptravel

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express London-Limehouse
We came to stay for the weekend to do all the sites in London. It is ideally located to the DLR. Would definately reccommend it to anyone.
Loved It! Will stay again
Stayed in December and the staff were very friendly upon arrvival, checked in no problem.
Rooms are the same as all Express Holiday Inn's but that's what I expected.
Very spacious bar area, didn't sell Guinness (yet) but had Murphy's instead.
Restaurant was very pleasant and made a nice change as most Express's don't have them. Food very nice and good value for money.
Checked out with no hassle and very reasonably priced.
Would recommend this hotel to anybody

Stayed at this hotel over the Christmas period. I found the staff to be friendly and very welcoming. The location was not the best but the hotel cleanliness and value for money certainly made up for this. The Tube station around the corner was very handy for sight seeing around London. Well worth the visit and would recomend this to everyone, We will definatly be going back next year.
Good for the price
We stayed at the Holiday Inn for 2 nights in September. The rooms were nice and clean and the decor modern and I thought it was all very good value for the price. The only problem I had was the noise from outside. I had read other reviews on this site about the noise but just thought that you can't expect the works for that price but it is loud - the London traffic is right there and there is no soundproofing.
The breakfast is excellent though - great croissants, plenty of toast etc..
Overall excellent value for the price but take earplugs!!
The hotel is very noisy.
If you are at the front of the hotel then you are on the noisy main road.
If you are at the back of the hotel then you have to contend with a very noisy machine plant running through the night.
Apart from the noise it was ok.
OK rooms, staff seemed a bit stretched.
TV was turned on by remote control from reception several times during the night.
Noise on the hallway during the night.
Excellent value for money
stayed there for a leisure weekend and had a great time. hotel is spotlessly clean and very comfortable for this price, well maintained and greatly managed! bed/pillows good, complimentary breakfast offers more than reasonable choice. location 35 minutes to city center by DLR/tube system 3 minutes away - also easily accessible by night bus service that stops 5 minutes from the hotel. pricecutter grocery store 4 minutes away, just around the corner. express by holiday inn limehouse is not a luxury hotel, and it's not what it is supposed to be. what it does instead, is that it delivers comfortable, clean and by all means nice accomodation at the unbeatable price. would recommend to all, and will stay here again!
Absolutely fine - good value
Stayed here two days and found it absolutely fine. Spotlessly clean and I found the staff helpful. Continental breakfast okay. At the internet rate I paid I would definitely stay again. Much better than budget central london hotels and doesn't take long on DLR from Bank
Stayed here May 21 &22. Built Feb., 2004. Very clean. It is almost 3 miles from downtown, but the tube is very easy to figure out. Only, a three minute walk to get on it. Would not hesitate to stay there again. As European breakfasts go, there was lots to choose from. Internet there for your usage. 2 pounds for two hours. Also had a hairdryer in the room.
Hotel from Hell!
I have satyed in the express hotels througout the uk, and they all been very good but this one. I stayed in April this year. The staff rude(if there where any on reception), dirty rooms, Horrible area. Not to recomend at all. Shame for the name express by holiday inn.
