    Not much at all - the lifts were good

    Where do I start? Terrible experience - booked a double room and checked in at 6.15 (after a 30 minute wait while the staff served football fans beer). Went to room to find 2 singles beds - went straight down to complain. No other double avaialble unless I wanted a smokers room. I declined. Best advice was to push the 2 singles together! The Hotel Manager blamed Booked.net for this room problem - I definitely booked a double! Terrible bar service, even the crisps from the vending machine were soggy. Awful night's sleep on a very poor mattress in Room 203. HAd to get up at 4am as my back could take no more. Definitely do not recommend unless you are a drunken football fan - I like football by the way but this was very poor for £79

    Noting really it was jus a simple room

    When we got into the room, the toilet wasn't flashed and someone had left a nasty surprise for us, room was smelling that put us off

    As we were going to a football game it was great. King power stadium was straight across the road.

    The staff. Just a job to them.

    Helpful staff

    Cooked breakfast is a disgrace. I might as well find a hotel that doesn't have breakfast included than pay for rubbery scambled egg and the most disgusting sausages I've ever tried.

    Covenient location. Handy for city.

    Lack of tea and coffee, only 2milks in room each day. A bit stingy.

    The rooms were extremely clean and comfortable and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay there again.

    Nothing

    Good location for the football stadium (business event).... Clean and nicely decorated room, modern and bright.

    This is 2012 and it really is unacceptable to charge a massive fee for a WiFi connection to internet. Even the cheapest hotels now normally offer a free service...... For this matter alone I would avoid staying here again (at what is otherwise a perfectly nice hotel).

    Reception staff were very helpful.

    I made my booking on-line and contacted the hotel afterwards to query a couple of things; the person I spoke to was not fully acquainted with the English language - you should have an English speaking person front of house at all times.

    Everything from booking in and out stayed there a few times now ideal for what I need will book again and tell others about the hotel to

    Theres nothing to dislike

  • Older travelers

    Nice friendly greeting by reception staff and nice comfortable rooms as well as complimentary tea and coffee making facility. Location is perfect for getting into the City centre and a stones throw away from the football ground if wanting to attend a game. Very nice decor and nice friendly ambience in the bar area making the stay extremely enjoyable.

    The breakfast was a complete let down compared with the rest of the stay at the Holiday Inn Express. Didn`t actually get to eat anything but a slice of toast as there was nothing left even though there was still 20 mins of sevice to go and staff weren`t very cooperative when informed of this.

  • Group of friends
    9.2

    Close and walkable for the rugby and football grounds. However you may need a taxi for the city centre and train station as if you go in the wrong direction a bit of a walk and not nice area.

    Next time if I happen to be in Leicester, I would definitely like to stay at the same hotel.

    Try buying better quality pillows

    Having used various Hi-Express the standard is the same whichever one I have used so you know what to expect.

    Slightly disappointed with the breakfast at Leicester compared to the other ones I have stayed at.
