Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Oxford Circus London
We stayed at this hotel in December 2004 for 5 nights. We had a room with a nice bathroom but it had murphy beds. The staff was not very helpful. We had breakfast included in an internet rate - it was fine but I would not pay for it seperately. Hotel was very dated - needs to be totally redone! Location is good but I would not stay there again.
Stayed for 5 nights recently. Very convienient location for Oxford St and the tube station, but overall felt that it was very dated. The room I stayed in needed some serious modernisation. Staff were pleasant and breakfast was perfect, but the whole place needs to be revamped in a big way. Probably wouldn't stay there again.
Perfectly adequate, quiet location in Central London
Located a few mins walk off Oxford Street, close to the action but still appearing secluded. Remarkably low profile for a Holiday Inn actually! It's a little corporate in feel especially the rather soulless bar, but the room was perfectly adequate if not exactly spacious. The shower left a bit to be desired also (always the 1st thing to check!) but was at least hot and functional!
The restaurant (dinner & breakfast) was average, but the help yourself breakfast buffet (though an expensive extra) was bountiful.
nice hotel of a quiet street just of oxford st good reception rooms clean and tidy near the sights. only eat the breakfast if you are rich 13 pounds for the privillage never tried it myself turned left outside hotel and went 2 blocks you will find coffee shops doing breakfast much cheaper. it is what you expect from holiday inn good quality .
what can i say. usually people only write to complain, but for this place i had to write to say i will always stay there in future. i use loads of hotels, the location and can do attitude of the staff is second to none!! everything was great. stay there!! it is no longer a garden court but a full service holiday inn
Great room,location and breakfast
We had a family room at this hotel, it was very spacious, with two rooms, and a good size bathroom. The staff were very hepful, and the hotel was clean. We worked out in the mini gym, which was small but adequate. The breakfast buffet was great with a large assortment of cereals, yogurt, eggs, pasteries and fruit. The location was great, Bond Street tube station is minutes away, and you could walk everywhere easily. There are great restaurants close to the hotel also. we would stay here again.
I'd Stay There Again
My family and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Oxford Circus in March 2004. We have lived in Europe for about three years and have been in a number European Hotels, world-wide chain hotels in Europe and B&Bs in Europe. Having said that I will say that the rooms are what you would expect from a European Hotel room. They were not tiny, but would have been great if they were larger. We had a family room which was two double beds, a little table a couple of chairs, TV etc. It was a great launching point for sightseeing in London. It is about 2 blocks away from the Oxford Street Tube Station. We flew into Stansted Airport and paid quite a bit on a Taxi ride to get to the hotel, but it is in a great location. The service is okay. I called for an iron and it took a while to get one. The breakfast is okay. It is different from what some might see in the States, but it was enough to get you going in the morning. The ladies who worked in the resturant in the evening were very helpful and friendly. The front desk staff needs a little more customer training, but they at least tried to help. The housekeeping staff keep the rooms very clean. This was most important for me. I would stay there again.
Great value + location
Just 2 min walk from Oxford St and Bond St Tube station in a really nice area. Clean, large room with good English/Continental breakfast!!!
Got good internet rate through aerlingus.
Basics, clean, good price/location
a short walk to nearby attractions, this basic hotel had a friendly non-intrusive staff and kept the place clean. a great hotel for anyone on a budget looking for a welcoming, clean place to stay.
Great location, minimal service
We chose this hotel because we got a great internet rate, 30 day advance purchase. The location is terrific, only a couple of blocks from the Bond St underground station, and near Selfridges and the other shooping of Oxford St. Our room was adequate, although a bit cramped for space with three bags and some shopping bags. The bathroom was clean and modern, but all the hotel offered for soap was a built-in liquid soap dispenser with Dove. So we bought our own shampoo and soap.
Amenities are few. When we asked about the benefits of being a member of Holiday Inn priority card, the response was "Like What?" The answer is there are no benefits here. What you see is what you get. But the staff is otherwise friendly and helpful. Due to the great location we would stay here again, but only for a very low rate, such as we got.

... were making a cross between a baked donut and loukoumades shaped like a small fish. They had a machine that squirted batter into a fish form sort of like a waffle iron. We decided that we needed one and it proved to be a very tasty snack!
Our next stop was Covent Garden where we watched a street magician swallow a three foot long balloon and pull a marked 10 pound note out of a freshly cut ...
... lots of fun
... sizes just right to fill us up but not weigh us down. In general, haevn't noticed too much creativity on British menus -- they'll have one or two interesting things and then a bunch of standards -- maybe it's how they are slowly transitioning to more and more interesting things and less "standards". It makes ordering pretty easy, though...

Today we off on a new adventure to London! We departed for the airport from the Generator, our hostel in Dublin, at 5:30am! After flying through security we waited to board the plane. Once we got on the plane I think I was asleep within five minutes. I slept the entire flight until we landed. We grabbed our luggage and then took an hour ...
... an unusual place to live at the same time because on one end we live in a relatively posh area similar to Toorak and 5 mins down the road is like Broadmeadows with people from all ethnic backgrounds and plenty of cheap shops (which of course I really appreciate). Our modern flat is on the 3rd level with two bed bedrooms, one bathroom with a toilet and another separate toilet (phew!).
London is definitely not ...
