Holiday Inn London - Oxford Circus3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The location does not justify the $249 a night price. Rooms need refurbishing. Housekeeping was terrible. More than $850 for theee nights was utterly ludicrous for the quality, but I had no other options on short notice.
This hotel was a short distance from oxford street. where there are plenty of restaurants for an evening out. Ideal for city break stopover. Plenty of tubes points to get around on the underground. The room was well made and got a decent nights kip!!
Stayed here for one night, after having spent some nights in a much fancier hotel a bit more down the road. Less fancy but also about 130 eur cheaper, I found this Holiday Inn good value. Efficient check in, elevator, OK room (we slept well). Room was not fancy but comfortable. (just missed some minor things in the bathroom like body lotion or so) For this price a good value and location is excellent for a city trip: a nice neighborhood, felt safe and quiet. Close to restaurants and pubs. Easy to get a cab. Only thing we did not like: the breakfast. Staff was a bit rude/impolite, especially the lady coordinating. You need to ask for coffee (why do they not put it out?). Offering at the breakfast is very limited if you want continental. In general we did not like quality of the breakfast. There are tons of cute bakeries and cafes close by where you can get a nicer breakfast. Because of the location, I would recommend this hotel but just without the breakfast.
The location of this hotel is perfect if you are in London to sight see or shop, however: - the rooms generally are not cleaned until around 4-5pm - they switch the heating off at night to save money - room service is delivered by the barman who tells you to 'go to the bar and get it yourself if you need anything because he is very busy!' - internet speed is appallingly slow - don't be surprised if the reception staff are complaining about their job to each other when you check in there are plenty of other hotels in the same location, they might be a little bit more expensive but it is generally better to pay the extra to be comfortable.
A stone’s throw from Oxford St. & numerous restaurants. Less than an hour to London Heathrow airport: short walk from Bond St underground that gets you to Lancaster Gate from which Paddington (for the 15 min Heathrow Express ride to the airport) is less than 10 mins walk. Got upgraded to executive room on second night –free as a member of the IHG rewards program. This raised me from floor 4 to floor 6 & gave me much more a view over the city. The difference - in the executive room were 2 bathrobes, slippers, scales, wide selection of quality teas & more coffee & more toiletries – toothbrush/paste, comb, mending kit. Water pressure was however rather low - be patient if you want a bath. The Hotel itself has a plush feel to it and the staff courteous & helpful.
I went yesterday for a meeting and really loved the meeting rooms. The refreshments and service was amazing. Hood coffee machine and lovely toilets. Which I got better pics. Look forward to coming again
Last minute booking on an unexpected trip to London. I’m a Spire Ambassador member - wasn’t welcomed and couldn’t check in at 1pm. Went to bar for lunch. Ordered a chicken, bacon and avocado sandwich. It arrived but the sandwich was made with stale bread - for a chef to put that to a customer is ridiculous. I sent it back and got a new one - well, not a sandwich - for some reason the chef decided to put the filling in between two pieces of toast. Not impressed. Room was ok. Can’t say I’d be excited to return here.
The bottom bar has long been set for budget hotels by the excellent Premier Inn and Travelodge, both budget, basic but clean and good. Unfortunately this hotel, although in an excellent location, falls far short of that line...something all too common in London. A modern reception belies what is upstairs. My room was relatively spacious and the window opened but it had a dusty, dank smell that fresh air would not shift. Bathroom tiny with very weak shower in the bath. When I attempted to use the air conditioning, it kicked out a foul mouldy pong that was revolting. Bed was comfortable enough but the mattress was well passed its sell-by date. Breakfast was standard issue lukewarm solid eggs, beans, hash browns etc. All too cold to enjoy. Blank slightly disgruntled service from staff. If you have the misfortune to stay here, skip breakfast and go out...there are many excellent local eateries very close by.
I have stayed at Holiday Inn many times in the US and UK. Holiday Inn Oxford circus is the worst one so far. Pros: Prime location. Minutes to restaurants and shops. Cons: The hotel is on the edge of not passing the safety inspections. The room I check in had holes in the walls, chipped paint, outlets were not secured to the wall and were almost hanging from the walls on wires, the light in the bathroom was not working (even when you insert the switch card near the room entrance), carpets were old and stained, chair at the computer desk was very shaky and also stained, arm chair had a rip on the arm. There also was very strong smell of smoke which is very unpleasant for non-smokers. The staff is rude. Room service walks into the room right after knocking. They don't even give you enough time to stand up from your bed and answer the door. The administration is very disorganized. I pre-approved room service transactions, yet they never could find the receipt. 2 out of 3 times, I ordered food to my room, they made me go downstairs and pay with my card at the front desk. One of those times the restaurant staff called me two minutes after I ordered and said they won't start preparing my meal until I pay. There is also some kind of construction going on right next to the hotel, so starting at 6am there is constant construction noise. I would recommend to people who want to stay close to Oxford Street to stay at Holiday Inn, Regents Park or Russel Square. Both Hotels are located within two miles from Oxford Circus and are very modern and clean. You will not be disappointed
The rooms could do with a bit of a revamp but overall good value for the money, especially in this part of town - just a block away from the tube (Bond Street Station) on Oxford Street. Bar is OK for a pre-dinner drink, and all the staff are friendly and professional.
