          Very close to the center, near the Gloucester underground station (blue and yellow line). Lots of services nearby. The hotel room was very nice and confortable.

          Saturday night there was a bit of noise (music) coming from the hotel bar, but overall it was calm and relaxing.

          Sarah at check in was very nice.

          Room was very basic, not particularly clean. Expensive for value and couldn't believe that internet was an added cost!

          Centrally located clean, close to the underground and buses.

          Does not have any chracter. The room and bathroomm are very small.

          8.8

          Friendly, efficient staff, quick check-in,excellent breakfast in attractive spacious surroundings,plenty of lifts .a very comfortable reception area with plenty of sofas, arm chairs etc; close proximity to the tube station, walking distance from museums and galleries and restaurants if required.

          Nothing!

          It was a lovely experience. The rooms were big and clean and breakfast good too. Staff friendly and helpful.

          The concierge is absolutely fanstatics, they are ever ready to provide assistance and I am really thankful for their help.

          The phone call to reception is almost never picked up , I wonder if reception area can improve on this aspect.

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          I like the hotel atmosphere, location and, normally, confort and service

          I stayed many times at the Holiday Inn lkf, but this time I did not like the room that was given to me and my wife (too small) and the absence of refrigerator (the space was there)!

        • Older travelers
          9.0

          The receptionist who checked us in was fantastic, even though we arrived early and she was able to book us in, so we could go straight to our room. We asked for a high room and got a superb view from the 27th floor!

        • Couple
          6.2

          We did not use the hotel much - just as a base for an overnight stay. It's fine from this point of view. Easy to find and close to Gloucester Rd tube which really helps. I would have preferred a cheaper deal but then that is always the case.

          Nothing | did not like but it'd be great if it were cheaper. Was a bit surprised to see a single bed next to the double bed - the double bed would be fine on its own and the extra bed took up room...

        • Group of friends
          5.0

          I don"t like the way it let holiday inn making like now I am the one who prefer holiday inn in any place I travel you van check from my pikemen club holiday in. Star to make the rooms small with missing a lo of facility inside like for example this is the first time in my hole life I found room without personal safe in the roo How ca. I save my personal and important thing and a lot of change I didn't expect the change of every thing in the hot will be like that now I should search for another hotel who be listed under pikemen club as now I am not prefer holiday inn any more before holiday Inn is y first choice now may be I use it in case I can't found any hotel I can't really put him in my choice any more

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Nice room and breakfast buffet, handy for the museums and buses or underground to go further. Staff friendly and helpful.

          Nice breakfast, but have had better (more choices) at other 4* hotels. They were a bit mean in only serving porage at an extra charge. Likewise, there were no biscuits on the tea tray in the bedroom.
