For holidays that can't wait
You can't go wrong with the Holiday Inn Express Luton airport. If the fact that it's the closest hotel to the terminal and overlooks the runway isn't enough to win you over, we're sure the free buffet breakfast, free downstairs wifi and soundproofed rooms where you can choose your own pillows will.
The Holiday Inn Express, because of its level of quality and price, is an extremely popular hotel. The atmosphere in the lounge is warm and friendly, and its a great place to soak up the jovial spirit of other holidaymakers.
The hotel has 71 parking spaces for 147 rooms, so its a case of first come first served when it comes to parking. Overnight parking costs £5, or you can combine your stay with parking while youre on holiday at Airparks Luton, which is a secured car park just 10 minutes' drive from the hotel.
We recommend the Holiday Inn Express Luton for:
Couples - bedrooms have more than enough room for two people. And the lounge is a great place for couples to spend an evening soaking up the holiday atmosphere.
Friends - the Great Room lounge comes alive during the evening and there's a real sociable atmosphere - without being too loud or intrusive.
Getting there -There's no need to wait for a bus
