Holiday Inn London - Regent's Park
Travel Blogs from London
Set off again for the sites and crowds of London. Called into a cafe on way to get the bus to have breakfast. I was dying for a cuppa.
Plugged our ear phones in for the audio and headed for St.Pauls soooo beautiful and the info on the audio is excellent. No photo's allowed which was a pity.
Back to the bus and on to …
Finally arrived in London and the place is very busy. We took the London bus tour and it took us to the following attractions Trafalga Square which is pretty good then Westminster Abby, The tower of Big Ben Did a Thames cruise to the Tower of London and saw the London Eye, London Bridge, the globe theatre then the tower of London where we got off …
With a late start, we left the hotel for our stroll to The British Museum. We stopped for breakfast along the way at a corner cafe on Tottenham Court Road and passed most of a pleasant hour chatting about Stanley and our move to a new horse yard.
We entered The British Museum from the northern entrance and quickly made our way from the …
After a two and a half hour train ride to London Victoria, we emerged from the station and crossed the road to the tube station in bright sunshine. However after a tube ride to Westminster it was suddenly raining. We walked around the Houses of Parliament to the visitor entrance and went through the security checks. We then went to through …
This was our last full day in London and we wanted to make the most of it. One problem though - I had to get my visa from the French consulate. So the morning went to waste as I tended to my travel documents and Sofia lounged at an internet cafe close by. Once I was done though, we headed to Buckingham Palace via a stroll along St. James Park. The …

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn London - Regent's Park
I chose this hotel based on only a couple reviews from this site when I was looking for a hotel for one night in London prior to flying home after a two week business trip. I booked through my airline so I got a very good rate, which included breakfast. I must say that after staying two nights in a 4 star London hotel on the start of the trip and 4 nights in Glasgow 4 star hotel for a conference, I wasn't expecting much and the Holiday Inn delivered way above my expectations. I was very ill with a respiratory infection when I arrived. The concierge, who told me he had been through many many changes at the hotel, was just divine and so helpful. The rooms are small but just the same at other London hotels, costing much more. The beds, duvets, and pillows are wonderful. I thought the staff was most helpful and kind to me and having ordered room service because I was so sick, I thought the food and service was excellent. Breakfast was very good. Next time, I would stay here the entire time. This hotel was far better than those other 4 star hotels I had stayed at on the trip.
I stayed at this hotel, oddly enough, after reading a review at this site! I booked my stay through the airline so I got a good deal. The hotel is in a nice area, close to Regent's Park and two tube stations.
There are a number of small resturants and grocery stores near..so you can save on meals. Yes, the rooms are on the small side but they are clean and very nice. I would have, in fact, gave it a higher rating if the rooms had be a little bigger. I was not dissappointed at all. I don't understand the one star review one person gave.
I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in January and thought it was really good. The location could be better but hey, its only a few minute walk to the tube (underground) and theres restaurants, shops, a pub and a mini supermarket. The rooms i thought were quite well maintained, the furniture looked in good condition and the pillows, beds and covers were all clean and comfy. The only downside to the room was that the bathroom was small, only enough room for one but it was clean and tidy.
(Keep in mind that three dots mean "neutral/average" and four means "above average" on this site. There wasn't a selection for "good, but not great," which is what I would have liked three dots to signify.)
Appalling value for money. Try Marriott or Hilton!
Very disappointed with this Hotel & Company. There is no way this hotel deserves 4 stars. Rooms are tiny (I had upgraded to and Executive & was told to expect a larger room, but it was the same size as a standard room just with "extras"). Bathrooms are really small. Furinture in room dirty & worn. Showerhead covered in mildew. Bad traffic noise. Office chairs used in the bedrooms. Breakfast items were sometimes cold. Staff unwilling to help at all. I will not be using this company again. I expected a lot more from this chain, but I am extremely let down.Good location, but then so are most hotels in London as they are all more or less next door to tube stations!
After finishing my business visit, I spent the weekend in Holiday Inn London - Regent's Park. (January 2004) HotelÂ s spot is very near to the tube and Oxford Street.Frankly speaking, Hotel was far better than my expectations. And to me, absolutely far better than many other hotels in London in this price range. Rooms were very clean, modern and warmly decorated. I enjoyed the breakfast a lot. It was excellent. Staff in the breakfast room was wonderful.My only negative observation was referring to reception staff. Maybe I can kindly put into this way. They were not generous enough in terms of using the words! When you need to ask them questions, you may ask, but the answers are very very limited!On the other hand, English guy (in his late fifties, with eye-glasses) at concierge was excellent. His patience was incredible. And he was so professional and helpful.All in all, I really liked the hotel and next time I plan to stay in Holiday Inn London - Regent's Park again.
Nice Clean Hotel...and Modern Rooms!
My friend and I just returned from our trip to Europe, and spent our last two days at the Holiday Inn Regents Park. I have stayed at several other hotels in London (most of which were old, dirty, and in bad locations)....Holiday Inn Regents Park far surpasses them. It is located in a nice mid-upper class neighborhood and is just a block away from the Great Portland St. tube stop on 2 different subway lines. The rooms are modern with comfortable pillows and duvets. The bathrooms are nice and clean. The room was a little cramped but for the price, location, and amenities...it was quickly overlooked!I will definitely stay here again!
The hotel is in an ideal location-short walk to Oxford street for shopping and 2 nearby tube stations. The hotel having recently undergone a total refurbishment was pristine,the staff were courteous and both evening meal and breakfast were excellent - the head waiter at dinner was a top notch guy. Great weekend - Will definitely visit again!
I believe in complimenting those hotels that deserve it and Holiday Inn Regent's Park really does deserve it. Even before we arrived the customer service provided was fantastic. All of our requests, including an early check in of 11am, were met and even when we found a website offering cheaper accommodation than that offered on Holiday Inn's official website they kept their promise and matched the lower price then discounted 10%.
Very Nice Hotel
Holiday Inn, Regents Park is a very nice hotel at a very reasonable price. The rooms are clean and modern. It was nice to come home to a relaxing environment, with air conditioning, after a hot summer day of touring. This hotel is conveniently located down the street from the Great Portland Tube Station. There is a Starbucks, plenty of Pubs and convenience stores nearby. There is also a bar in the hotel that serves late night food. The only problem we encountered was that the mini-bar in our room wasn't working and the staff didn't seem to know how to get it working.
