Stayed for one Saturday night with a friend while we met our London based friends for the weekend.
Arrived at 11.30am and expected a room not to be ready but reception staff allocated us a twin room without any fuss. Jade on reception was polite and accommodating.
We had a 2nd floor room facing the main road but we didnt notice much more noise than you would expect but ear plugs provided just in case. The room and bathroom were very clean and modern with all the amenities you would expect. The hotel in general is also very clean and functional. Sadly we didnt make breakfast so cant comment.
In terms of location, the hotel is situated in the heart of East Londons nightlife and I thought £100 for one night B&B on a Saturday in London was good value as most hotels charge a premium and also dont include breakfast. I know London well and this is not a hotel you should choose for the tourist areas as it is quite far east but for anyone wanting to stay in East London on business etc or take advantage of the nightlife on offer then stay here.
