In fact it's nowhere near. If you think you will step out of the front door and arrive in the cosmopolitan streets of Shoreditch.......think again ! It's at least a 5 min taxi ride there. On the upside the hotel us cracking value - modern and well appointed rooms. Great for business but get ready to jump in cabs

Stayed for one night on business and very pleased with the hotel. Nice big room with very comfy bed and very clean. Only a 10 minute stroll to places such as Bethnal green which has plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from. Food in hotel was ok but a bit of a limited menu. Staff were very nice and helpfull with plenty of local knowledge. A good twenty minutes walk from Liverpool St station is the only thing that lets this place down however I would have no hesitation in staying again.

Service was so bad that I do not know where to start even. The room was not ready when we arrived; but the worst was that they treated us in a way that we almost felt guilty we arrived to this hotel. Then anything you ask for they do faces and are simply rude. Like asking about later check out - because it is like 10 am; I was told, 'if you leave the room 10 minutes late nothing bad will happen, we will not charge you'.... I guess when you work in the hotel you should have a better nicer way of saying this, even if you cannot extend the room for 30 minutes.
The restaurant is really bad. In general, the location is not great. The only positive thing is the bus stop in front of the entrance, if you want to take a bus.
The rooms are nice and very comfortable. So, it is really a pity that the service ruined our impression about this hotel. The problem is that there are not really alternatives around, so if you have to stay in this area, as we did, you do not really have a choice.

Whilst in London terms this hotel is probably good value for money, and the rooms were clean, the towels we were provided with had seen better days, and the damp patch above the shower was unpleasant. But the main issue with this hotel is it's location. A ten/fifteen minute walk from Shoreditch High street into Tower Hamlets it's just past the limit of the recent gentrification of this area so that aggressive dogs, striptease bars and crowds of drunk, homeless men were all part of our uncomfortable journey back to it

Key to any business trip is a hotel with Internet access and while this hotel had Internet access, it wasn't available wirelessly from the 2 rooms I stayed in.

The front desk staff are polite and willing to please but housekeeping did not refill the toiletries in my 5 days there.

Hotel food is generally pricey but the quality should be excellent, I ate dinner at the hotel on Monday night and never again. Yes, it was that bad.

While the signage on the front desk says "Transportation available 24 hours" this is not a shuttle service and a cab will simply be called.

The location is poor and is quite a walk from the banking district.

I would not stay there again and have already eyed alternative accommodation.

Yes it is clean, yes it is new, it has two (slow) elevators, a bar/grill, and a gym, but it is just not a 4 star hotel atmosphere.

The reception staff is mainly busy talking amongst each other rather than helping waiting customers. Most of them could not be bothered to look up and greet when walking by. The wifi malfunctioned and despite several requests (and promises) was never restarted. One morning two drunk guests sat at the bar and, while they were harassing other guests verbally, the staff let them play they own music on their iPad for about an hour.

The rooms lack amenities like a safe, glasses (or cups) in the bathroom or a filled minibar and the bed is a mini queen size. Combined with the fact the nearest tube station is a stiff 15 minute walk through an unpleasant neighborhood all in all not ideal for romantic weekends away.
