Perhaps the best feature of the 224-bedroom Express by Holiday Inn London City is its fantastic central London location, in an area that is not overrun with tourists but still combines a vibrant atmosphere with convenient connections. A quick stroll from the exit at Old Street tube station will see you arriving at the hotel entrance, with buzzing bars and clubs and some of the most cutting-edge London entertainment available in the surrounding Shoreditch and Hoxton area. Hoxton Square, right behind the hotel building, is particularly renowned for its stylish and diverse array of bars and restaurants, with London stalwarts including Brick Lane and Spitalfields Market within a 15 minute walk. The financial hub of the City is a short tube ride away, and Heathrow Airport is 45 minutes away via taxi.
Location aside, the Express by Holiday Inn London City itself offers cheerful, modern and affordable accommodation that is particularly suited to business travellers or those on a short city break. Rooms are available as a Standard, Executive Club or Suite, all of which are unified by a bright and smart aesthetic and an array of contemporary amenities including flatscreen television, WiFi access and gleaming bathrooms with power shower. The latter two categories of guest room include extra sofa beds and more spacious surroundings.
