Historical Traveller Reviews of Holiday Inn London Oxford Circus Hotel

Great location

from A TripAdvisor Member
All too often do we read reviews where people just want to pull down a hotel/location. This hotel was just the ticket for our short three day trip to London. Good location, close to the Oxford Street shops, nice and clean (spotless in fact). The beds were soooooooo comfy. Staff were efficient and polite, and when we asked for extra pillows thats just what we got. We were in a room on the front of the hotel and we could hear the traffic but then again we are in the middle of London. Breakfast was all you can eat and was a good start to the day. The hotel is your average Holiday Inn (not posh) but for the price we paid it was well worth the money.

s less expensive for these reasons

Here are some things that will really bug you if you are there for more than two days.

1. Internet connection is 12.50 pounds per day.
2. Internet connection is wireless but slower than dial-up if it works at all.
3. Shower gets scalding hot randomly. If your head's under it. . .prepare for pain.
4. Shower curtain doesn't weigh enough so the water pressure causes it to billow in while you're showering. Prepare to wash while keeping it from wrapping around you.
5. Sink basin is not designed for the water pressure. Expect to get soaked each time you turn it on.
6. Phone in my room was so loosely connected to the wall that no calls could come in or out. Got no messages even when they were left.
7. Eat elsewhere and you'll be fine in that department.

Well kept room complete with pillow menu. Staff very helpful and all in all a comfortable stay. One bit of advice is not to eat here. It took a half hour for the food to come (although they offered to call us in our room when it was ready) and the menu is not very extensive. However for €60 per person per night and the fact that we were in the city centre, this was very good value.

AAgh! Smelly....

We booked this hotel according to the photo on the net, we took a guest light furniture ect. When we arrived there was no porter to assist us, our room was not ready regardles to prior arrangements, we waited 3hrs and where exhausted having just flowen in from a different time zone.
The room had dark, dreary furniture, dirty carpets paint peeling off the walls and really smelly.
The shower leaked all over the floor, shower curtain so face cloths where provided or soap.
We were charged a rate higher than advertised on the net, as the hotel had failed to take the money off the credit card.We had e-mailed 3 times prior to our arrival but were never answered.
Our complaints fell on deaf ears.We booked out 2 days later and went to another hotel owned by the opposition and received double value for 20 pounds more.
On leaving the porter stood and watched while we dragged our heavy cases out by ourselves. We would not recommend this hotel to anyone as we feel that the advertising on the net is not what one gets.

After reading some less than favourable reviews on this website, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. However, I actually really liked this hotel. The staff were extremely helpful to me and my room was very comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.

Spent 3 nights here before Christmas with family. Good location for shopping trip, but area very quiet once the shops close, few restaurants nearby and no real night-life, apart from the homeless people... Nice foyer, check-in was problem-free but the room was a bit disappointing. It could have done with a serious sprucing-up. Room smelt of stale smoke when specifically asked for a non-smoking room. Manager didn't resolve this problem, said there was nothing they could do, whilst shrugging shoulders and looking thouroughly bored with me. Breakfast was nice though and there was plenty of food available and breakfast staff were very pleasant. Okay hotel but won't stay there again.

remember your footwear.

from TripMember
Stayed for one night in mid April. Disgusting experience. Hallway on second floor smelt damp, room smelt damp, and pile of vomit on hallway carpet besides ground floor elevator at 7.30am next morning was the final straw. Bathroom in room had been recently renovated - new bath, tiles, etc. Windows also opened, which helped alleviate the damp smell overnight. I wore shoes in room at all times. Is it so difficult to find a clean, comfortable room in London for £120???

Good location

from A TripAdvisor Member
This hotel is an excellent base for exploring London, within walking distance of Oxford St, Baker St and Regents Park.
It is your typical holiday inn- it doesn't have much personality and the staff are pretty miserable. The buffet breakfast is really nice if you are prepared to pay the high price, although I felt the breakfasting room was too small and felt a little rushed by staff to vacate the table.
The rooms were clean, the shower nice and hot and the beds comfortable. As mentioned in previous reviews the staff could do with a little customer service training, and I sometimes got the feeling they didn't quite understand me when I spoke to them (the staff are all different nationalities).
I don't think I would stay here again, although it is in a good location I didn't enjoy my time in this hotel.

Good location but we specifically booked a non-smoking room to be put in an extremely smelly smoking room on the ground floor. The outer bedding was dirty, the walls were dirty and there was food on the floor. When we asked to be moved they said they were fully booked and that the room was actually non-smoking but guests tend to still smoke in the rooms. We did move the next day but had to return in the afternoon to remove our own belongings. The second room was much much fresher smelling with non-smoking signs and a bigger room, however the hotel decor is in poor condition and desperately needs refurbished. However, if this doesn't bother you then the location is good.

Nice stains on the wallpaper!

from Paul_Whydall
I did not read any of the previous reports from other "happy" visitors to this property before making my booking. We paid 90GBP for a nights accommodation (bed & breakfast)

Checkin was quick and efficient, the upgrade which we should have received for being Priority Club card holders was already given. We did not have to ask unlike other Holiday Inn's we have stayed in before.

The room was shockingly horrible, stains on the wallpaper, peeling wall paper, damp patches around the windows - it was horrible!

One good thing, the bed was very comfortable, had the best nights sleep in a hotel for a while.

The bathroom was small, the bath shallow.

We had breakfast in the room the morning after, what shall I say...

...Out of date milk (took 30 minutes to receive some in date replacements)

Apart from the milk, there was a good selection of items and very yummy.

The smoke detector was extra sensitive, and was set of by my partner by just using the hair dryer!

Checkout was quick although the Romanian receptionist was not very friendly (but Ive never met one who is at a Holiday Inn)

Would we stay here again.. NO! Id sooner pay £200 and stay at the Intercontinental!

Top Local Tips for London

Buy only Zone 1 & 2 Tube passes... Buying a travelcard before going is a waste of money. All the attraction can be found within Zone 1 and 2...and you pay a hang of alot for the Travelcard bought from other countries in advance. It is no problem to buy it once you are there. You will save alot like this.

Getting about Make use of the fantastic underground/subway

While in London use the card... Upon arrival buy an OYSTER card, they will charge you 3 british pounds (you'll get back the money when you leave at any ticket window) and add money into it, it is the cheapest way of moving around London. Example:"tube" trip from Heathrow to Bond street, 4 british pounds...with card....2.50.
