A seven minute walk from busses, the tube and the Westfield mall - a great and BIG mall that offers you all that you need when it comes to shopping and restaurants. The tube takes about 20 minutes to the heart of London. Staff is friendly. Rooms nice, quiet and tidy. Quite cold though. Comfy beds. There is an electric...

2 nights, double bed, 5th floor, £180. I stayed here for the weekend with my partner. Upon arrival I was informed that we'd booked a twin room instead of a double, a lady at reception offered to and switched us to a double room which was nice. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty. Serve yourself buffet with sausages, bacon, scrambled egg,...

Good location and close to the shopping centre. Safe and quite area. I went to this hotel by myself and love the service and especially breakfast is so rich. Sometimes it could be a bit noisy close by the street but Love it overall!

We booked this hotel as it is fairly well located for the O2, which we were attending for an event, and the price was extremely competitive for London. Unfortunately I did not sleep for the two days I was there due to shockingly poor noise transfer. You can hear literally everything. We discovered we had a twin room with adjoining...

Room on the 6th floor was large, clean and standard equipment but a bit cold. Heating was set at 24 but room was a maximum of 21. Breakfast was good. The hotel is a short walk from Stratford station and great shopping center.
