Second time we've stayed here! The Location is Fantastic! 2mins away from Tube Station and Bus Stop Across the Road! Breakfast was good and the Staff and Cleaners were very helpful and good! We've stayed at a Hotel near Kings Cross but this is Far Better! Thank You!

A pleasant welcome, comfy room and a good location. The breakfast is okay, if you search enough you can eat healthily. There is a personal assistant unit in the room- 95% of a mobile phone, which guests are free to use on their stay: its good for browsing and finding out what's in the local vicinity- and you can take...

It was so good. They gave me this cool phone thing and they were just really nice. Great, clean room. Just wish the WiFi wasn't dodgy and would let me use all my apps. It blocks certain things at the minute.

I often stay at the Holiday Inn, I just like the chain and they are often in great locations, this is no different, Shoreditch located, 5 mins walk from Old Street station, this express has what you need for a very reasonable cost. We had a room on the 5th floor, right next to the lift which was a little...

My son and I stayed here as he had an early morning appointment at moorfields eye hospital. I had emailed and asked if I could reserve parking as my son is disabled and I needed to be able to park easily. When we arrived parking was reserved right outside the hotel and we were given a fully accessible room. The...

Happy to recommend this hotel. Clean, comfortable, staff friendly, courteous and helpful. My wife has arthritis & they happily provided an extra pillow to use as a body pillow. Breakfast was not the best, but when it is included in the price buffet is acceptable.

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The only good part was that the room was clean. It is the smallest room I have ever stayed in with the tiniest bed I have ever had in a hotel, somewhere between a twin and a full size for 2 people. The hallways were stinky. 1 thin blanket on...

Stayed here last night with a friend and was mostly very impressed! The room was very clean and had all the basic amenities you would need. We couldn't seem to turn the air con on which was a slight annoyance as it got very hot in the room and you can't open it windows! Apart from that, very pleased with...

On arrival the shower was broken and had clearly not been functioning g for some time. Breakfast was the poorest selection I have ever experienced in any country. The hot selection was low quality sausage, grey scrambled eggs and beans...yes that's all.

Staying in Shoreditch

Neighbourhood Profile
The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well connected transportation links dotting its perimeter, along with an ever increasing variety of shops, hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighbourhood. There's a lingering post-industrial grit about Shoreditch, but because it shares a border with “The City” financial district, the influence from its upscale neighbour can result in fascinating outcomes.
