This time I lasted in the main building of the hotel. The room just above the entrance, on the corner. Room was adequate and heating was excellent! Reliable heating in both the room and bathroom. Linen and towels always bright white and clean. Breakfast room and kitchen are always delightful. Great for what I paid! My only critic is the...

We travelled as 2 couples from Greece and we arrived easily at the place of the hotel, which is indeed 2 minites walk from the metro station or 1 minite away from the bus station! If you take the metro you are very close to the center if you think the big size of London (10-15 minites for most things...

I booked this hotel for two nights for my daughters birthday. It says all rooms en suite but when I got there, it was shared. It was dirty, dark and gloomy. I thought it had an energy bulb making it dark, but I looked up and five bulbs were missing out of the light fitting. I put the lamp on...

The hotel is in a great location right next to Bow station on the DLR line and not far from underground. The hotel is basic, but ok. The shower, however, was awful. There was no cold water at all coming out of the shower - tried to adjust but scolding matter what. Told the person on the desk 4 separate...

The hotel is a budget hotel and so I was expecting it to be pretty nasty. I hadn't planned on spending a lot of time there and so I felt ok about that. However, it was clean, spacious and there were even toiletries left out with clean towels each day. It was relatively cheap and really well positioned for east...

I stayed there for a couple of nights with my best friend. We booked it early - stayed in October, booked in March, but the price was good. The room was small, but we didn't really spend much time in it. The bathroom was big one though. We even got clean towels every day. The dining room was great, you...
