The Express by Holiday Inn is close to North Acton tube station and an ideal place to stay when travelling in london. Just park the car in the hotel car park (only 8 or so parking spaces) and you can get anywhere in the london area via the tube.
The hotel is modern comfortable and each room offers a decent bed, TV, tea making facilities and the usual shower/wc facilities.
It only offers continental breakfast but there are plent of places to eat in the surrounding areas - you just have to venture out!!!
To start, I'm not 100% sure of the price here because I bought a group package so my review will be based of general experience without price considered.
To start, the location of this place is not in central London, but it is about a two minute walk from a tube therefore it is super easy to get around. The line is in the second zone meaning you will pay a little extra for your daily pass, but it's not bad. There is also a Tesco Express right across the street which came in handy. Not much else in the area, a couple cool pubs, but, like I said, the tube is easy to get you around.
In regards to the rooms, they are a little on the small side. My friend and I had a double bed and a couch in our room. My friend actually slept on the couch because the bed did seem a little on the small side for two people to use. My other downside to this place: I found the comforter too hot so I pulled back to sheets to sleep with those, and the mattress cover wasn't too pretty so I put the cover back and used the comforter again.
Everyone in our group was super confused with the lights and thought we had no electricity, but you just needed to put your room key into a source near the door (just thought I'd mention that so no one else pees in the dark, lol).
They have a public access computer which is a pretty decent price. The phone was really expensive but they have a pay phone in the lobby. The service here is also exceptional! Our group of 26 that went were treated very well. Seriously, 5 star customer service. The food for breakfast was also quite tasty.
This was the most decent hotel we could get for our price range.
Though the hotel itself was ok, it's about 30 mins outside London City center via tube. Though it's convenient to the Tube, the stop is a one min walk if that. There's a free breakfast which is nice and it's not just cereal. There's yogurt, fruit, sausage, croissants and toast. The size of the room is decent, we had a queen bed (which was comfy) and a pullout couch. The bathroom is also decent with good water pressure and a detachable shower head.
Not bad for the price, but if you need to be in the city center, this isn't your spot. However, if you can mind the 30 min or more tube ride, then check this place out.
Great hotel for West London. Rooms are small like all rooms in London for this same price range. Very clean and comfortable. The wifi didnt work for the first few days I was there, but it was fixed and worked until I left. This hotel is right next to North Acton tube station(Central Line). Easy access off and on. Great location. Takes less then 20 minutes to get into Central London.
Free breakfast every morning. Everything you really need. Yogurts, fruit, cereal, breads, juice, coffee, milk. They aslo have a dinner menu, but I never tried it. I did see people eating dinner and it looked good. They have a full bar in the lobby area as well.
This hotel will make any American feel safe and comfortable for a good price in London. I paid $100 a night in the low season. Thats hard to beat. If you want an American sized hotel room located in Central London, then you are going to pay upwards of $200-250 a night.
Stay here and save money.
