Reviewed 20 May 2013 via mobile

Stayed here last night as we were on a course In purley. No parking! Only space for 10 cars tops? Receptionist very helpful! Rooms clean but very basic! Breakfast slightly disappointing! But for a base for London/croydon perfect! Couldn't ask for more!!

My wife and I stayed here whilst we were having work done on our house close by. The hotel is very convenient for central Croydon and also for our commute into central London. East Croydon station was a ten minute walk away which made it easy to get to the office. The bedroom was compact but included everything we required,...

Stayed Friday to Monday. Good central location, although not easy to find if you are driving and car parking is off-site. HIE offer discount rates at Q-park but no information was given about this when we checked in - we were only made aware after driving round for about 20mins after having been out for dinner, and finally returning to...

This hotel is great for those who don't mind traveling outside of Central London. It's waaaay cheaper than Central hotels and offers a free breakfast. We chose HIE in Croydon, because it's about a 30 min train ride into the city and coming from NYC, we're used to this, so this was not a problem. Also, the rooms are spacious...

Me and my partner stayed in the Croydon hotel while visiting family. There was a lot of trouble checking in resulting in us having to go out of the hotel for a couple of hours.

This hotel was literally in the town centre of Croydon, and roughly 10 mins walk from East Croydon Train station. It was easy to locate, straight walk down, past Allders, following the tram direction. On arrival the receptionist was ok, and they ensured that my special requested had been honoured which I really appreciated. The lobby area was clean, lift...
