I highly recommend this hotel !
I stayed in this hotel with a friend for 2 nights and 3 days. It was a very nice stay. We had a twin room, the beds were extremely comfortable, the room big enough for us to have space. The continental breakfast was very good as well. There were some muffins, some bread, some food suited for vegans and diabetic people, different kind of juices, yoghourts, fruit, jam, danish pastries, tea, coffee... The hotel was very clean and the workers there very helpful, and very nice, patient, answering all of our questions, always smiling. The hotel wasn't noisy. Another good point is that you can eat there at night if you don't want to go out. There are some meals with chicken, pastas... The choice isn't very big but still it is nice to know you can eat there for there aren't many things around the hotel.
The only negative point perhaps is the fact you're 25 away from Central London. But thankfully it's located in the 1-2 zone on the Central Line and the subway is just behind the hotel. Definitely a hotel I highly recommend.
Stayed her for 4 nights. Great room (size),clean bed/bathroom. Close to the underground - Central Line. You would think it maybe would have been a bit noise, but no it was not. I slept like a baby. It was not too expensive either. Loved this hotel, and will come back on my next trip to London.
Great stay at the express
Stayed here the week of the transport bombings so there was a great deal of distractions & transport problems but we found our vacation stay wonderful. The hotel is superbly situated next to the tube & bus routes with tube journeys of twenty minutes to Oxford st with its own secure carpark. The hotel itself was extremly clean with the staff always tidying up & busy with lots of time for guests which I thought with all the turmoil a great attitude from the staff.
The rooms were not large but a family room had a twin bed & a sofa bed, the overall apperance was terrific very clean & fresh towels & rooms cleaned everyday.
Breakfast is continental style with cereal, toast, fruit juice, tea & coffee which may not sound much but it was eat as much as you like & there was plenty of it, the staff looked after everyone in the mornings & could not have done any better.
Overall this hotel suprised us as this was not our first choice but we will consider this hotel again. Many thanks to the Holiday Express
I have been staying here for one night every month on business since it opened almost 2 years ago, as my head office is opposite this hotel. Rooms are clean and comfortable, decent bed, good shower, air con, TV etc. It is very quiet. They have recently installed secondary double glazing and the main road outside has just been re-routed so it is almost traffic free. North Acton Tube station (central line) is directly behind the hotel and offers a very good link to the city. Road links are good, just off the A40 (turn off at the huge blue Carphone Warehouse building, you can't miss it! the hotel is just behind it) There is a small hotel car park which you may have to book in advance. There is not much near the hotel, just offices, petrol station and a pub but there is a small general store under the hotel for essentials. I normally catch the tube 2 stops to the end of the line at Ealing Broadway where there are lots of bars and restaurants. Tube runs until the early hours. Breakfast is included and is a reasonable continental effort. The only minor downsides are that the bar is a bit bland and unwelcoming and it takes ages to check in/out (otherwise the staff are fine).
This hotel rocked. If you don't mind a short tube ride to the city center (15-20 minutes to Oxford Circus), this hotel will serve you well. Clean, comfortable, good continental breakfast (which is available rather late in the morning, too), very friendly staff. My husband stays in hotels 14 days out of the month and this was the quietest hotel room he's ever been in... although you could throw a rock from our room's window to the train below, you wouldn't have known it from the lack of noise! It took 20 minutes from Victoria Station to reach the hotel. We loved it.
Hotel located right by the North Acton tube station, if you look up when you exit the tube station you will see the backside of the hotel straight ahead of you. We didn't, asked for directions and felt very stupid.. North Acton tubestop is just within zone 1-2, the cheapest one. We bought a weekend ticket for the tube that was extremely cheap. It takes less than 15 minutes to Notting Hill and 20 minutes to Oxford Circus.
Clean, new room that would have costed 200 euros in the city centre.
What else can you ask for?
Clean but Far
This is a nice hotel, moderately priced with clean rooms. However, it is out of the way and there is nothing within walking distance. Not even the Taxi companies knew how to get there! This can be a problem if, like I, you have an early flight to catch (there is no metro early in the morning) and the taxi service never arrives because they can't find the hotel. There is a tube station a few meters from the hotel, but it does not offer 24 hour service. Other than location, it is a good hotel.
Good choice for London Stay
My family and I stayed at this hotel for a week during our vacation in the UK. Very close access to the tube and large clean rooms with A/C. Phone calls are expensive and there is very little to do around the hotel. This hotel worked well for us.
New, but basic hotel

Well, it's 6am again! Will woke up at 4am this morning, which he kindly woke me up to tell me... Thanks! I managed another hour, but then sure enough I was awake too! Oh well at least it gives us plenty of time to catch up on emails, Skype, the blog etc..
Yesterday was an awesome day, London turned on the weather! Ok it didn't get above 5 degrees, but there was sun all day, it was like a Tassie winter day! I have high expectations ...
... You see that girl there? She's an American." After about 3 seconds of feeling afronted, I realized I was carrying a bright yellow hawaiian-print bag, and was clearly over-bundled for the relatively balmy weather. Considering these two things - they could've easily gotten more specific and stated, "You see that girl there? She's Texan."

11) Don't use your mobile phone abroad.
Whether its calls or using the internet, don’t do it unless you have WiFi, it cost me about £30 to download something like 3 MB of data. We did take a couple of old phone’s with us to get local sim cards but Wifi was so freely available (especially in MacDonald’s) that we just used emails, ...
... Tooley Street. The views of Tower Bridge from London Bridge are fantastic and you can also see HMS Belfast moored on the Thames, which is now an Imperial War Museum. From Tooley Street the bus goes past Boris' Office (City Hall) across Tower Bridge (which is just as amazing as what you'd think it would be) to the Tower of London. We got off here and went to visit the Tower. One of the good things about the bus tour, is that we bought our Tower of ...
... we cannot imagine living in London, much less working in it - It's awful. We've figured out why everyone's rushing around so fast - like us, they want to escape, too!!!!! As I write this, we are on the tube heading back to our Hounslow motel to start packing for home. It's been a fabulous trip, so very happy to have had the chance to see all we've seen. But we are definitely ready to return home to our own bed, to hug our doggie, and say hello to ...
