Historical Traveller Reviews of Holiday Inn London Regent's Park Hotel

Great Value Hotel

from Brettb
We enjoyed this Holiday Inn very much. We found a very good rate on the Holiday Inn Web site for a double (Queen Bed) and were pleasantly surprised at the quality and style of this hotel. The room was spacious by London standards, and the bed very comfortable. Service was very good. We did not have breakfast at the hotel (too expensive) but there are many little cafes close by which make great low-cost breakfasts so this was not a problem. The Hotel is in a good area and there is easy access to public transport. This Hotel was probably the best "bargain" find of our entire stay in the UK - we would recommend it and would stay there again if the rates were similar.

OK in the end, beginning was a struggle

from running
My parents stayed at this hotel a few months ago. We don't know what we were expecting but...The bored looking receptionist (suited more to sell mobile phones) gave my father the worst room at the hotel. The hotel was going through renovation (which was needed!) and the room was at the back of it all: you had to walk endless corridors with bits hanging out from the ceiling, and yes - a smell of urine came across as well as we finally came to door number 436.
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 rate

from LucaRuggiero
Been in almost all the Hiltons and the Intercontinentals in London (since I usually get there at least six times a year) and this hotel is remarkable because it is clean, not expensive and well located.
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?

What You Would Expect from a Holiday Inn

from A TripAdvisor Member
I spent the first week of August at the Holiday Inn London - Regent's Park. I got a fabulous rate on the hotels website and was very satisfied with my stay. The rooms are no smaller than you would expect from London but are in pristine condition. The staff were incredibly helpful, to the extent that one of the desk staff lent me her personal cellphone charger when no transformers were available for me to use my own. The location is in a lovely quiet area five minutes walk away from Regent's Park. Between the two tube stations that are around the corner from the hotel you can get on most of the main tube lines. There is a 24 hour store down the road for essentials, and it is a pleasant 20 minute stroll to Oxford Street. Overall, I'm not sure I would pay the rack rate for this hotel, but as there are many offers both on the hotel site and British Airways site or Expedia, you should never have to. For the price it met and exceeded my expectations.

Great place to stay in London

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed at this hotel for five nights in july. Got a nice rate at british airways holiday web page. Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms are a little bit small, but comfortable and clean. Being my first time in London I had some doubts about it's location, but it turned out to be a quiet area, and quite safe to walk at night. It's walking distance from Oxford St. and it's shops, and also there are two subway stations nearby. Our rate included full-breakfast, which was very good indeed, buffet style and with several options. A nice place to rest after a busy day in London.

Great for shops and theatre

from A TripAdvisor Member
Very well run and immaculately clean hotel, staff could not do enough to help us, great value for money

Super place to stay

from SnowFallingOnCedars
We stayed three nights at this hotel at the beginning of July. I got a good rate at the hotel's own website and was more than pleased with the room we were allocated. It was pristinely clean, had air-conditioning, plus it was quiet.
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 price

from mchang45
Stayed here on two separate occassions in July'04. The rooms were nice and well kept. It's a solid 3 star or a weak 4 star hotel. It is very close to the tube station and fairly convienent. Saw a wide variation in the pricing so do some shopping.

Great value and location

from toots
We just returned from five nights at this hotel and recommend it for location and cleanliness. We found it on Priceline, asking for a four-star in the Regent's Park area. Paid $110 incl. tax but not breakfast. Our room was small, but sufficient for opening two suitcases, quiet, never heard anything from outside or other rooms. Two very comfortable beds with choice of pillows, large windows with heavy drapes we could shut against the 10 p.m. daylight. Clean bath with deep tub, self-serve safe which was nice for passports and cash. We did not eat there as it was pricey, but bought snacks from corner store.
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.

Great Service

from A TripAdvisor Member
My family and I enjoyed our stay here. Even though the rooms were pricey, after 16 hours of travelling, we found it comfortable and enjoyable. There are 18 channels on the TV, I desk and a nice leather chair for you to sit in. Bathrooms came with a bath mat, a rail for you to hold onto if you are handicapped, and shampoo and lotion for your shower.

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.
