Convenient location, comfortable and friendly staff”

The location was great, a walking distance from the major attractions near the River Thames. The room was clean and comfortable. The room was a bit small but understandable it is London. Breakfast was included, nice but the food was the same very day. The staff members were very friendly and helpful. A good place to stay.

Excellent”

We stayed twice in one week at the Holiday Inn. When we first arrived we didn't find the night staff very helpful or polite but when different staff took over form them our experience improved. . Our room was so hot and stuffy that we found it difficult to sleep. When we asked to change to one which had a window that opened we were informed that no rooms had windows that opened. However, when we looked outside many rooms had windows that were slightly open, so we asked again and this time we were moved to a room with windows that opened so we could get fresh air . The 2nd time we stayed the staff were very helpful and polite and we had no complaints.

Hotel is nice in overall but there are some downsides”

Although there is a few parking spots underground but we need to pay 20 pounds per night. And the hotel is located at Central London, if you drive to the hotel, you would need to pay congestion charge 15 pounds unless you drive outside the time period of 7am to 10pm. So in my case, I paid 30 pounds for congestion charge for just staying there 2 days 1 night because I didn't know about it. Other than that, the nearby southwark tube station is closed for weekends so it made us harder to commute but its still manageable with bus and walking. However, the hotel is clean and spacious. Staffs are friendly.

clean, friendly staff, wifi

Paid so much when I could easily get a better hotel or location for half the price. Not near any tube station so it's a long walk. Receptionist told us that there wasn't any bus that goes to any tube station so we ended up walking for 15mins everyday only to realise after a week that we could take a couple of buses down to two different stations. Free breakfast. Same food evryday. Baked beans, burnt sausages that looked like they reheated evry morning and bad tasteless scramble eggs.
