Recent guest reviews

Wanting a hotel not too far from the city centre at a reasonable price this hotel ticked all the boxes. Check in was efficient and very helpful. Although you expect a basic room when not paying much I was pleasantly surprised and very happy with our room. There was an iron, hairdryer and tea making facilities all provided. Getting in quite late in the early hours there was staff on at reception along with snacks etc to purchase. Breakfast on a Sunday morning four of us headed down at ten. There was no member of staff to advise us if we needed to provide room numbers despite several people queuing and as it was really busy and limited places to sit, a lack of staff cleaning tables. This is my only criticism of our stay the breakfast isn't brilliant but certainly passable. Parking was six pound an evening. Definitely an hotel I'd consider again.

Stayed Sat 11th Nov - concert at First Arena - easy to find, good car park, excellent hotel staff - very helpful. Great size very clean room on 1st floor - excellent crisp bedding and towels. Reception staff organised taxi for us and advised best place to go to organise a return taxi. Breakfast was a little hectic, but food was plentiful and it just kept on coming and was really good. Staff were very friendly. Could not find fault. Many thanks to all at the Holiday Inn Express Leeds City Centre.

Rooms are very clean nice breakfasts with hot crispy bacon but no fried eggs . Very pleasant staff . Would definitely come back here. It is just off the motorway so if you open the window for fresh air it is very noisy. Plenty car park spaces

Reception staff lovely. Hotel clean and modern. Ideal hotel for shopping in Leeds city centre. Excellent parking at hotel. Lovely breakfast in a large restaurant area of hotel. Would definately stay again.

Stayed on the 6th floor for one evening with a pal, so shared a twin room. Upon arrival staff where friendly, gave a lot of information. The room was spotless and everything fully functional although the pressure on the shower was a little disappointing. Bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was well prepared. Would stay again.

Stayed there at Halloween. Found the room large clean warm and comfortable. Quite moden. Staff were efficient and friendly. Parking on site for six pounds.Breakfast excellent. Handy for emmerdale studios . Would return happily

Stayed 1 night sat 28 Oct, nice reception staff, decent rooms, had shower to discover filthy towel full of ladies make up, very poor stuff, took towel to reception on checkout, think they were as shocked as me, bizzare !

2 night midweek stay for a family gathering. Hotel is just on the edge of the City centre. Very clean and comfortable. Nice and friendly staff. Breakfast better than I expected. Even numbered rooms overlook the Kirkstall Road dual carriageway and road noise can/may be an issue. I’d have no hesitation of recommending or staying at this hotel again.

Our flight was cancelled and I booked this hotel for one night as we were flying the next next morning,from we entered the building until we left the staff were very helpful and friendly ,we also had a meal which was fine ,room was great ,bathroom was large with a really powerful shower everything that we needed , one thing I would say the breakfast was a little bit below the level I was expecting compared to my stays at the holiday inn leeds armouries but all in a good stopover.

My room and all areas of the hotel were clean and tidy, no scuff marks on the walls in my room, no marks on the carpet. The bed was clean and comfortable, the room had everything I needed including a hairdryer, iron and ironing board. Breakfast area was bright and clean, even the scrambled eggs were great. Couldn't fault it.
