Just 300 yards from new islington station on the metro. I was surprised straight away by the friendly staff on reception. It was a bright and welcoming change from the normal receptions you get in hotels.
Then onto our room. A double room. Straight away we felt relaxed, thanks to the colours and lighting.
It was a great use of space. With the sink and shower in the same room as the bed. It sounds odd but it works.
My wife wasn't very well due to a cold/flu and she said the shower was lovely, especially the mood lighting.
There were lots of negative feedback on the internet about thin pillows and duvets. But I found nothing wrong with either.
Plenty of plugs in the room to charge phones/tablets.
And a nice widescreen tv with free view not just the usual 5 channels.
As the name states it's a budgets hotel. So no kettle in the room.
(But hot drinks are available in the reception area.)
I had an open mind as to what to expect but was amazingly surprised by the room and friendly staff.
I don't know if the rooms are soundproofed. But it was nice and quite all the time.
See you again soon
