Picked this hotel because of previous good reviews on Tripadvisor. Was a bit disappointed when we arrived. Entrance off side street that looked a bit dubious. We'd been struggling to book breakfast online but staff member seemed reluctant to help and totally disinterested in any kind of service. Check in not til 3pm so we left our bags and went to explore.
Great location for tubes and buses - into the centre and out to Stratford.
On return there had been a change over of staff and the new lot could not be more helpful. Lovely people.
Eventually in our rooms and very impressed - a double and a family room. The family room was a particularly good size, with a bath not just a shower cubicle. Both rooms basic but clean and comfy. Despite being on front road, the noise from outside was minimal. Probably could have done with extra towels (only one hand and one bath towel for the 2 of us), but didn't get chance to ask housekeeping so I don't know if they would have supplied more. Borrowed hair dryer from reception, no probs.
In the end, the breakfast problem was resolved: we discovered the amazing Nico's, just at the side of the tube station. Definitely recommended.
Check out was 12pm so I guess it explains the late check in. We were able to leave our bags and pop across to the V&A Childhood museum across the road. Somewhere I would never have known about had we not stayed in Bethnal Green.
We booked well in advance and got brilliant rates. I'd be more than happy to stay there again (and a special thanks to the afternoon/evening staff).
