Got this hotel through Hotwire last minute and paid only £175 for a Friday and Saturday night combined. A few comments suggested that the location was poor however it's simply a 5-10 minute walk from Whitechaple and 10 minute walk from Aldgate East Underground. We arrived into London from Kings Cross and the journey to Whitechaple was very straight forward.
Hotel was unbelievable really. Brand new, clean and very spacious. Upon arrival we were upgraded to an executive room which is very nice. Free wifi standard.
We went to the well known Brick Lane for an Indian meal which is only around 15 minutes walk - a fantastic experience and market also.
We walked to Tower Bridge and it's a steady 15 minute walk. Really simple to navigate too, head toward the city skyline! Located in Whitechaple which looks to be an up and coming area. All felt very safe.
I visit london frequently, usually business but if I were to come again this hotel would be a definite - providing the prices remain low which I suspect they won't!
