The CityStay hotel is just a short walk from Bow Rd tube, which is about half an hour from central London. A family member and I were both staying and we wanted individual rooms without paying too much so it served that purpose. The hotel will give you a front door key so you can come back when you like, though as far as I could tell there as no 24 reception. The room was quite big if you factored in the bathroom and the small dressing area with the wardrobe and there was a large cupboard. There is a small TV mounted on the wall with the Freeview channels, and an ensuite bathroom with shower. I was in a basement room and the curtains didn't adequately keep out the light from the busy road, so if you're as sensitive to lights as I am you might want to request a non-basement room. The bed was incredibly comfy.
There was a self-service breakfast room but no-one told us about this, we just heard people coming and going from it. There is a Co-Operative supermarket across the road, a pub on the same road and a small cafe which serves breakfast. Alternatively you could take the District line two stops and go to the Wetherspoons at Stepney Green.
For one night's cheap stay it was alright but it is quite far out.
