This is a hotel above a pub but it is surprisingly quiet.(the pub and the hotel are totally separate)
Good quality room, comfortable bed and a fan which is useful as the room (105) is very public so didn't have the window open. Bathroom / shower small but did the job. No tea making facilities in the room which is not a big issue as hotel room tea is not that great but there was not even a glass to use for a drink of water. I queried this and was told I need to go to the pub and ask for a glass. Didn’t bother and bought my own glass instead. That’s about the only thing to complain about. I have booked again and will bring my own glass.
The area is not great but Newham is one of the poorer London Boroughs and Olympic fever never reached this part of Stratford. The pub is a local’s local but the people are friendly and it does a decent pint of Guinness.
Never had breakfast as I’ve got into a routine of leaving early and eating near to work (Andrews Café – Theobald’s Rd end of Grays Inn Road – worth a visit) but the kitchen area where you eat is tiny and previous reviews didn't sell it to me.When I checked in, breakfast was not mentioned anyway!
10-15 minute walk to Stratford tube station and the town centre and on a Friday I can get the 25 Bus direct to work instead of humping a bag on the crowded tube.
