A Lovely Comfy stay

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 24, 2013

This hotel is comfortable, stylish and affordable. Situated just 10-15 minutes walk from Farringdon and Russell square tube stations, you can find yourself in Central London in no time. Staff on arrival were really friendly. We stayed for two nights and were allocated a room on the second floor. Lifts are available but these were busy at peak times such as Breakfast times. Our room was a lovely size with sofa & coffee table complete with magazines. The room was equipped with a small fridge, tea/coffee making facilities, trouser press, hairdryer and nice size flat screen tv which had the normal free channels in addition to pay per view movies. WIFI is available at an extra charge. Toiletries are provided in the bathroom which was spotlessly clean. The bed was really comfortable and there was a choice of firm or soft pillows which just added to a nice peaceful nights sleep. We took the Continental Breakfast option but you can opt for full English when making your booking. The Continental Breakfast was served in the Carriage restaurant on the ground floor. The continental breakfast was great, you can help yourself to croissants, rolls, toast, preserves, cheese, ham, cereals, yoghurt and fruit and as much Tea/coffee as you like. There is a very handy gift/essentials shop on Lobby level. Here you will also find a cosy bar, the Carriage Restaurant and the lovely Rasa Maricham Indian restaurant. On a lower level you will find the spa consisting of a small pool, Jacuzzi and fitness suite. An additional charge of £3.50 per day is made for the use of these facilities - towels are provided.

All in all, I had a great stay here and would recommend to others.

Unique Quality: The staff were helpful and friendly.
Rasa Indian Restaurant on the ground floor was great, you can even order room service from their menu!

I was really impressed with The Holiday Inn Kings Cross/Bloomsbury, before going i had wrongly presumed that Holiday Inns were a bit like Travelodge's but after booking i found I was wrong.
The Holiday Inn at Kings Cross / Bloomsbury is a 4 star hotel with some really great amenities and very friendly and helpful staff.
There is a Spar and Health Club that costs only £3.50 per day to visit as well as a nice bar and 2 fantastic restaurants one of which is a Indian restaurant of the Rasa chain that specializes in food from Southern India (And it really is fantastic)

There is a shop just near the reception area that sells everything from pot noodles to clocks.

The room was spacious with air con, TV with both normal free to watch TV as well as a pay to view service. Shower gel, shampoo, body lotion and soap are supplied and if you have forgotten anything other items are supplied free of charge all you have to do is ask. There was a fridge as well as Tea and coffee making facilities, tea coffee milk are provided and you can just ask at reception for more and they will give you as much as you can carry.
There is also a hair dryer and a trouser press.

The bed was comfortable and had a choice of pillows (Firm or soft), There is a digital alarm clock so you can make sure you get up in time for Breakfast, We had continental Breakfast which was really good, a nice choice of things like lovely fresh bread rolls with ham and cheese, cereals, toast and jam as well as fruits and yogurts. the other restaurant does full English breakfasts (it depends on your choice on booking)

I would definitely love stay here again!

Will be staying here again for 2 nights next week, I cant't wait!

Not that close from Kings Cross!

I booked the hotel by mistake! I was misleading it with the Novotel between St Pancrass and Euston. Even if this hotel is called "Kings cross", it is not that close from the station. It is still walking distance though! It is indeed located close to Clerkenwell. From the quick look I had, it doesn't seem to be one of the most attractive part of London but plenty of restaurants are available in the area.

The hotel itself is correct but not so impressive. That was my second stay in a Holiday Inn. I was expecting something similar to the one in Stevenage but have been slightly disappointed. The room was correct, the bed was comfortable but the furniture (and the lobby as well) looked a bit tacky! It was freezing cold outside but the rooms were appropriately heated!

The bathroom could have been better, again a shower in a bathtub but this time with a fixed "shower cap"! I hate that!
A "coffee" kit was available in the room.

Wireless Internet access was available but not compatible with iPass!

I had a continental breakfast, even if the price (10.95&) was relatively low, the quality was at the same level!

Clerks were not particularly friendly or welcoming, just professional.

Directions: 15 min walk, south of Kings cross - St Pancras

In my eyes the Holiday Inn at Bloomsbury is posh, in other people’s eyes it may not be so. If you take the underground along the Northern Line from Waterloo, the hotel is placed up the road & down a back street, although it can be a bit tricky to find. There’s a large entrance with automatic doors which open onto the reception, most of the staff can be recognised by their green uniforms. The keys are like little cards and there is a skill to opening the bloody doors! Ours wouldn’t work at first, we were told to slot it in and remove it directly, a red light which came on would flash green which meant we could enter. There’s six floors all accessed by a lift which has mirrored walls, & stomach churning drops.

Inside the rooms there’s a bathroom with small lights in the ceiling. Being disabled the bath wasn’t very good, they could really do with some walk in versions. Towels are supplied & there’s a Dove dispenser on the wall which smells nice. By the sink is a box of tissues & a shaving point, if you forget any toiletries you can get some from reception. The taps are as one so one direction each way brings out hot & cold; there’s also a shower with curtain rail.

Unique Quality: There’s a wardrobe with fixed hangers so they don’t get nicked and an air humidifier. All TV’s are widescreen with a Playstation and tea and coffee facility with kenco, teabags and Splendour sachets. The cups are proper white china on a trey with a kettle which is fast boiling. The beds are comfortable with a phone to reception, you won’t see much out of the window except office blocks.

The restaurant is very good with a full breakfast I the mornings & cooked at night. We came her for a conference & found the meeting rooms to be very nice, especially the assembly room. The British Museum is just up the road, which I have described in another posting. You have to be out of your room by 10am so the chamber maid can attack it, there’s also a left luggage room which is tagged for identification.
