On the map it appears out of the centre but it's easily accessed from Victoria Tube Station on the District line and the Aldgate East station is around the corner. Many restaurants that aren't part of chains are within walking distance. Hache, a popular burger place, is one. Spitalfield Market, Petticoat Lane, and Brick Lane are minutes away if you are there on a Sunday. Bars and cafés and unique boutiques are nearby. It's actually a more trendy area than the centre.
The hotel is newly renovated. Lobby has a cool design but friendly with a large bar to pull it together. Front desk is manned by young and cheerful, smiling clerks. Rooms are clean. Beds comfortable. Windows block street noise with double glass. Disposable plastic glasses in bathroom for sanitary reasons. Papers in the lobby. All for an affordable price compared to tired rooms you could get elsewhere. Hotel does not charge you for first night like some do even when you book the "right to cancel" option. Some hotels take your money and take 10 days to repay you when you cancel. Annoying policy and not familiar to North Americans.
I recommend it for anyone to stay.
