If you're looking for a cheap hotel near Stansted Airport that's comfortable, up-to-date and close to the terminal, you'll love the Holiday Inn Express London Stansted. You won't find some of the frills and fancies of other Stansted hotels; after all, the Holiday Inn Express is a limited-service hotel, but the free buffet breakfast, the free lounge-area wifi and the fact that it's five minutes from the airport could make it seem otherwise.

Rooms at the Holiday Inn Express are designed to help you get a flawless night's sleep: all are climate controlled and double glazed, with blackout curtains and you can choose your own pillows. If you're feeling a little more sociable and don't want to spend the whole time in your room, you can soak up the jovial atmosphere of the hotel's lively lounge, which doubles up as the bar and restaurant.

The Holiday Inn Express is an attractive choice for families. It has more than 60 bedrooms that sleep two adults and two small children, plus there are a number of connecting rooms for larger groups. The hotel offers free breakfast to all guests, and under 13s get a free three-course meal with each adult who buys a main course - so parents won't have to dip far into the holiday budget.

We recommend the Express by Holiday Inn Stansted for:

Families - with the 'kids eat free' offer and free breakfast for all, parents will have plenty left over for holiday treats!.

The budget-conscious - it's one of our lowest-priced hotels at Stansted and with extras like the free wifi and free breakfast, you really are getting a whole lot more for your money.

A sound night's sleep - double glazing, blackout curtains, comfy beds and a choice of either soft or firm pillows are bound to help you catch some much-needed ZZZs.
