Historical Traveller Reviews of Holiday Inn London Regent's Park Hotel
Great Value Hotelfrom Brettb
OK in the end, beginning was a strugglefrom running
The room was small, of 2/3 star standard. We had booked a non-smoking room which this clearly wasn't either.
My parents decided to sleep through the night anyway but were kept awake by the fire alarm at the hotel which went off 3 times! Good thing obviously that it works in case there was a fire but was a bit of a nuisance towards the end.
Next morning another surprise occurred on floor 4: you could not take the lift downstairs. My parents and a few other customers were directed downstairs through fire exit and the staff areas. Only then did my father complain, and they were upgraded to a floor above, which was a like a new world! We suppose floor 5 is something you would expect from this hotel - 4 star, and part of the Holiday Inn company.
Bad luck was involved with this experience clearly but I think hotels should think twice before accommodating their guests in dodgy rooms like 436 in the middle of a construction site.
Very good, for the ratefrom LucaRuggiero
Of course, is not like staying in a good Mayfair or Chelsea hotel; but If you're not on honeymoon and you do not expect too much, that is the right place to choose, if you get a good rate (as twice I had, in my two stays there, for a total of seven days, last one being on July 2004): after all it's a Holiday Inn, and not a five star resort.
The room was nice and clean, with a fresh put minibar; the bathroom, though, is as big as a telephone booth and the shampoo is (very modern, very cheap, but definitely not chic) hanging in a dispenser from the wall of the tub, like in the motels in a remote state of the U.S.; which can be good for homesickness, if you're american.
The four out of five is due, essentially, to the very good value rate, not to the service, to which I would give a beautiful (2), having been asked for a cash «security» in order to get an adaptor for the hairdryer: was it actually that necessary, since they had my room number and credit card deposited?

Super place to stayfrom SnowFallingOnCedars
We never ate at the hotel, but in the vicinity there were several restaurant options.
On nearby Cleveland Street we ate breakfast each morning at the Bon Appetite cafe where the owners were delightful and the food delicious and reasonably-priced.
Harts the Grocers, near Portland Street underground station was excellent for incidentals, and only a few yards from the hotel itself.
If returning to London, I would gladly stay at this Holiday Inn again.
Good hotel... shop around for a good pricefrom mchang45
Great value and locationfrom toots
Great location on quiet street, close to Tube and bus at corner. Several restaurants nearby. Easy walking to Tottenham, Oxford Street, Euston Station, British Library, Madam Tusseaud's, hop-on hop-off bus. We would stay there again.
Our only problem was with concierge who was too busy to help much and desk clerks kept referring us to the concierge.

Top Local Tips for London
The tube If you are planning on being in London for a week, buy a travelcard - all tube and bus lines plus a discount on the Thames water taxi (to Greenwich). Getting to Heathrow by the tube is worthwhile, easy and cheap in comparison to all other forms of transportation.
Use the Underground (Subway) I highly recommend getting around using the Subway, its fast and there are stations everywhere. It only costs a little more than 5lbs ($10 U.S.) and it good for the entire day. My wife and I took a cab because of time constraints to the Portobello Market from our hotel and it cost 15lbs which is much more expensive than the Subway.
Taxi If possible use the cabs you can hire instead of the Black cabs. If you hit traffice it is cheaper because the hired cabs are flat rate not metered.
