Holiday Inn Express Leicester - City

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We spent 2 nights in Leicester to visit the Leicester FC fanshop and the National Space Centre. This hotel is located opposite the King Power Stadium and so it's perfect for Leicester fans. Luckily we had a room with view on the stadium. The staff is very friendly and the breakfast is okay.

Situated literally right outside Leicester City's King Power Stadium...the hotel is very comfortable with excellent beds, showers etc.....the staff were excellent too but the only disappointing aspect was the breakfast! Only 3 items available for a cooked breakfast, scrambled eggs, sausages and beans!! Would definitely stay here again though.

Nice stay we stayed here for football match. Lively characters especially the gentleman who is the main hotel character Sky Man David, if you get the chance to chat to him interesting character. Rooms were nice bouncy bed good view of stadium out of the window, staff friendly the foreign guy was a little fruity and fun. Food easily bought from stadium restaurants we were only offered take away from Claire the manager

Got a quiet room, as requested, but the first night was spoilt by shouting smokers every hour through the night, and the phone in our room didn't work to tell the staff. Nor did they answer our calls from our mobiles. We had a refund but we were very tired. Both days, staff and manager parked in the disabled bays without badges, despite us politely asking who was parking there, because as disabled badge holders, only three of the six bays were available. The end bays were up against low walls, so access was restricted there. Other spaces were always available for staff and customers to use, a little further away. The receptionist spoke about our concerns to the manager but he did nothing except smile to her. Later we discovered that it was the manager and two of his staff who was parking there, not just one or two customers. We think the attitude to disabled visitors by the manager and staff at this hotel is shockingly bad, and the manager's reaction to bringing the parking issue to his attention was disgusting.

Working nearby and just needed somewhere simple to stay. Located next to the Leicester City Football ground so pretty easy to find. I am not sure how easy it would be to get to should there be a match on as it shares an entrance with the ground. Plenty of parking space. Check in quick and pleasant. Pretty much the same as any other HIE. The benefit is that you know what you are getting. Room on the first floor either via lift or stairs. Room clean and tidy as was the bathroom. Wi-Fi was a bit of a weak point. You can only connect one device at a time on the same account, meaning if you want internet access on more than one device you need to create multiple accounts. It was not particularly fast, struggling to hit 4 or 5mb. Perfectly fine for browsing but a lot of hotels are now offering ultra high speed. Was not particularly consistent. Although connected it stopped working for a few minutes then came back to life. Not a major issue but worth mentioning so it can be improved. Breakfast was the usual Holiday Inn Express offering. They are still on the old style breakfast and yet to update, although they have until the 1st May to do this. Then you get bacon! Although I suspect they will still serve the vile excuse for scrambled egg. This is not just HIE, no hotel does scrambled egg properly unless freshly cooked to order. Apart from that, it was ok. Perfectly fine experience with just a few niggles but not enough to cause any real issues. Check out just as easy as check in.

We were only here for one night,but we arrived quite early and asked if we could leave our bags in the hotel. To our great surprise we were told our room was ready. This was an added bonus as we were going to be out visiting relatives for the day. Check in and out was dealt with very well with both staff members being very friendly and professional. Breakfast is always welcome at Holiday Inn Express's, this was no exception.

We stayed here for a couple of nights as we went to the football. About a 20 minute walk from the city, walking through the University was nice, and only £6 back in the taxi. Also handy to the nandos and pubs nearby.

No problems, no issues - All what you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express. Hasn't had it's re-fit yet but not a problem. staff were efficient and friendly. East access to the De Monfort Hall which was the reason for our visit. Lovely view of the King Power Stadium from the room and the Blues Bar & Grill next door is well worth a visit. All smiles here :)

The people who work here are really friendly and look after you well. Breakfast is good and the rooms are good and clean. Parking is free and next to the hotel. Some interesting views from the top floors

Lovely hotel and walkable to the city centre. Comfortable and clean rooms, plenty for breakfast and a car park at the back of the hotel. Staff are very friendly and helpful. A pub next door serves evening meals.
