I stayed at this hotel from 30th April until 5 May. I have had to wait until now to post a review of this hotel since Im a repeat visitor and tripadvisor wont allow repeat reviews of the same hotel.
My positive comments about this hotel are that the staff on this occasion were excellent. They were all very pleasant and were really helpful. The breakfast was excellent and I opted to have freshly made items rather than the standard buffet. The choice of items available to be freshly made was very impressive. The room that I Was staying in was adequate for one person however as I have posted in the past, it's a squeeze for two people. The neighbouring streets are quite quiet. There is a tube station within a minute or two walk from the hotel, a couple of express supermarkets and Oxford St is walkable. I ate int he hotel restaurant a number of times and the evening meals were very good and are much better than normal hotel restaurant food.
On the downside, I was staying for a training course and I was woken up during the night immediately prior to the morning of my exam. The noise from the guests in the room next door was very loud. Two men were talking loudly and I rang their room to ask them to be quiet. It was obvious that soundproofing between rooms is very inadequate. I could easily hear the phone ring in their room. Since they wouldnt be quiet I had to phone reception and ask them to sort out the problem. To be fair the receptionist came up to their room which was pleasing - considering it was 130am. This action was sufficient to quieten them down. Unfortunately whilst this event is somewhat outside of the hotels control it did mean that my exam didnt go well because I have been awake for around an hour by the time i dozed off to sleep. The following night, thr last of my stay, the fire alarm went off at around 3am, resulting in the fire service attending and all guests being forced to vacate rooms for about 30 minutes. The hotel informed us that a guest room smoke detector had been triggered. Again I realise that the two events were as a result of guest action and there is little the hotel can do to prevent this sort of thing. It was surprising that these two event occurred since this is a Holiday Inn after all not a low end hostal or cheap hotel.
On reflection I would stay at this hotel again despite the above since it was the guests causing the issues not the hotel itself. The staff were very pleasant and helpful as I have said. Unfortunately as a Platinum Priority Club member I didnt get an upgrade.
