We stayed at this hotel in London for one night , good points are its is clean, modern and food is ok . But just some constructive tips for travellers to London the location is next to a cement works so parks ur car inside and the walk through the park at night near the hotel has drinkers on park benches so not great for security and it's not the hotels fault . The hotel staff were friendly and helpful but I didn't appreciate the smell of weed in the lift . Worth a short stay for business but no... Read more

Stayed in this hotel for 3 weeks for a business trip. Pros : 4 mins walk to DLR station, convenient for those going to office in Canary Wharf. Wifi works fine. Cons : Breakfast menu is fixed- no change whatsoever for weeks altogether. Hotel is next to a cement factory - generates a lot of dust & noise.

We stayed on a Saturday night for a weekend in London, the hotel is very easy to find once off the DLR at Limehouse and juts 3 stops from Tower Bridge so great connections to mainline railways. I think this is more aimed at business travellers then weekenders but was a nice clean hotel with very friendly staff. Main problem was the heat in the room, very hot and with a busy road out the front an open window means some noise. We had a twin room with the extra sofa bed so 3 adults, not really en... Read more

An excellent hotel, great value for money. Located within 5 minutes walk from DLR light railway making access to central London very easy. Room clean, not small but not large, adequate for a short stay. Limehouse Basin 5 minutes walk away, great for evening stroll. Staff were exceptionally good, very helpful and understanding.

Standard Holiday Inn Express, but in London (which increases its relative value). Bigger rooms and lower prices than the standard for London. Good service and free wifi. Decent breakfast, but not great. Nice views and good location for QMUL, Limehouse or Canary Wharf. Far away though from the main attractions. Not noisy in spite of being in front of a crowded road.

In my view this is worse than most Holiday Inn Express hotels I have stayed in. Plus points were that the staff were friendly but this was outweighed by the run down decor and the depressing room. All fittings particularly in the bathroom seemed to be the cheapest available. Breakfast was just about OK. We found a nice Italian restaurant a short walk away. Price can vary wildly depending on when you book.

Stayed here overnight while attending an event at ExCel. Fairly easy to find if you enter the hotel address - going by the postcode on a Sat-Nav (GPS) drops you in a tunnel that runs underneath the hotel...Driving across Central London is neither easy or fun but a 'necessary evil' if you don't have a choice in your method of transport. The Docklands Light Railway (DLR) with it's automated trains has a station within a 5-minute walk of the hotel which links in with over-ground & underground rail... Read more

Stayed at the hotel for a recent event at the ExCeL and couldn't fault anything and accessible to pretty much anywhere in London via DLR and c2c mainline services (connecting to the underground). The staff onsite were incredibly helpful and even came to my rescue when I needed first aid, as well as giving us suggestions on local delivery companies for takeaway food when we realised the lack of an onsite restaurant.

It's a good hotel but I certainly wouldn't pay the advertised full price. Yes you get breakfast, yes it's buffet style but the food isn't anything to get excited about (although hot food is served - sausages, scrambled egg and bacon which isn't always the case at some London hotels). Don't arrive at this hotel hungry because you wont find anything served after breakfast unless it's a sandwich from the reception fridge and they run out quickly (not much choice to begin with). There is also a ven... Read more

Stayed here 2 weekends on the trot, 7th floor first time 1st floor on the second. Both rooms seem newly refurbished, clean comfortable quiet. Nice welcome late eve both weekends, took a drink from the bar to our room, basic free breakfast, sausage beans scrambled eggs, toast, pastries jams, bit of cheese fresh fruit. Not bad at all. Will stay again close to DLR.

This hotel is not an ideal location but the staff was great. The rooms are small as is the bathroom. We arrived very late and had not eaten. The staff ordered pizza which was delivered for us. That was helpful since we were jet lagged and hungry. Beds and pillows are very comfy!

If you are wanting a cheap hotel and want a certain standard then this hotel is good. We stayed three nights as a family of four but wouldn't want to stay any longer than that. It is your typical holiday inn express with a clean room and bathroom, a double bed and a sofa bed which can accommodate 3 easily and four if your kids don't mind sharing a bed. The breakfast is nothing special but it is included in the price and when times by 4 for people staying, big money saver. There isn't much ar... Read more

Went to this Hotel for an Expo at the Excel third week of June 2016. Trained to Euston and Uber'd to Hotel (about £15). Didn't hold out much hope when I arrived as it overlooked 4 lanes of traffic but looks towards the river and South Bank, City is to the left and right to Tower Bridge. Honestly didn't hold out much hope and it was £209 per night (Trivago I think?) but the sign behind reception said £395 (Really not worth that!)

Stayed 4 nights in family room that included dbl bed and dbl sofa pull-out. Room was clean, service was adequate and included breakfast helped keep cost down as food in London is very expensive for a family of 4. Nothing special about hotel but provided good access to DLR and tube. As an added bonus, Wifi was provided and was good speed and quality.

This is a modern hotel less than 5 minutes walk from Limehouse Station (mainline and DLR). Check in was quick and the room was large and spacious. This was a return visit to this hotel. I was flying from London City so the hotel has good connections to the airport via the DLR. I would recommend this hotel for a night or so and would definitely return.

Having stayed in several Holiday Inn Express we knew what to expect and the hotel didn't let us down. Located a short walk from the DLR the hotel is actually much closer to central London than I had realised when booking. Our room was clean and comfortable, with a nice powerful shower, free wi-fi and breakfast included. Slightly annoying that in order to use an iron I had to get dressed and walk down to reception where the irons/ironing boards are kept, and carry it back to my room. Apart from t... Read more

This is a decent hotel with good links to tube station. Mine was a last minute trip to London and whilst I was driving, my family decided to join in too; Although the hotel is on the main road, getting here was a bit tricky - in that the postcode comes up at the rear-side of the hotel from where there is no entry into the limited car parking spaces they have.

We arrived at the Holiday Inn- Limehouse after a long day of travel and had excellent service. Getting to the hotel from LHR was a snap, it simply required a couple transfers on the tube and then a quick trip on the DLR from Bank. We took the Picadilly line in from LHR and then transferred to the central at Holborn, which was about a 40 min trip, then rode that a couple stops to bank, and transferred to the DLR which is a straight shot a couple more stops to Limehouse, then it's a simple walk ...

I stayed here while travelling on tour, the staff in reception were extremely polite, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The room was very clean and the air conditioning worked perfect.

The bed was very comfy and I could not fault it. Would definitely stay here again.

Terrible service, be careful. My family were visited to the room and were asked twice to leave it at 12pm, even when we had double-checked that morning that we could leave our rooms at 2 pm since we are members of the IHG rewards plan. For one room, we were asked to pay for an extra parking fee (we don't have a car in the UK). The staff also intended to charge a higher fee, even when the rooms were already paid. At the end the staff recognized that they had an error, but when I tried to file a c... Read more

i wasn't expecting much from this hotel, but i was pleasantly surprised. The room was a bit cramped for 2 adults and a child, but the service was good, and the service was very good with friendly helpful staff. They checked us in early as we arrived unexpectedly. The breakfast was good. If you're looking for a place just to sleep, then it serves its purpose. It's not too far from the station, but restaurants are a bit of a walk. I would recommend it though.

He made a lot of wonderful recommendations for us and was always willing to help. The breakfast was nice and a great money/time saver for us in the morning. My only suggestion would be to start a rotation on the hot items as sausage, scrambled eggs and beans can get a little tired after four days. The room was clean and comfortable.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights when we went to the Gin Festival at the Tobacco Docks with friends. This is a well located hotel in a great area of London, the staff were very helpful and our stay was very pleasant. The only issue was the layout of the dining area that turned it into a scene of complete carnage whenever it became busy. I'd still recommend a stay here though.

Being Spire Elite Ambassador, in both intercontinental and Holiday I always enjoy the good service, Limehouse holiday inn express is far from the real category of good service and the same chain. I have been in the hotel for the past 4 nights and another 3 to go. The make up of the room is not available after 3pm, the replenishing of coffee and tea dose not happen unless you advise the reception, some days no replenishment at all. Very disappointed
