My husband and I spent 9 nights at the hotel and had no problems. The room was small but the space was enough, shower was great with hot and cold water, room was warm in winter, breakfast was free and complete and food was available 24/7! The location was great: very close to the metro station, there were supermarkets and... More

Not worth the money paid. We stayed for two nights and they didn't clean the room. The staff is not helpful or friendly. They are not welcoming and don't smile to the guests. They insisted on taking 10 pounds in advance for a late check out.

I stayed quite late in a meeting and had to start with the next quite early. It was not worth heading home at the time so I decided to take a room. It is quite basic, yet the room was well appointed and clean. The option of having the kitchen available at any time was quite convenient. I would recommend... More

Stayed here for one night. The Hotel is adjacent to Bow Church station which is a plus. The rooms are very basic, but to be fair, very clean. The bed my son had was not especially comfortable, but ours was fine. I was not terribly amused when there was a power cut which left me in complete darkness in the... More

This was my first time visiting London and I was shocked at how ridiculously expensive everything is. Luckily, I discovered this hotel at a fraction of what most others asked. It is a 5-minute walk to Bow Road station (which serves the green line and the pink line). Getting around London was easy and convenient. Note that if you buy... More

My husband and I stayed here recently. The music festival we were supposed to attend got canceled, so we needed to find a place to stay quickly, and this was one of the only hotels or hostels left in London that was in our price range. We were in Flat 3 Room B. Having a kitchen was a definite plus,... More

Our stay was not good at all. The front desk guy couldn't seem to stop skyping long enough to answer and questions. Mostly we got some sort of grunt. There's really not a lot of decent places to eat nearby. The room for 3 was tiny and you cook your own breakfast with whatever food they have there plus you... More

I had a one day training course in the City of London, and wanted to avoid an early start and travelling up on the day so I booked in here for the night before. My needs were just the basic essentials - bed, bathroom and breakfast - and they were well met. Breakfast was included in the price. Yes it... More

This was my second stay at this hotel, can't really complaint, service is ok, price is good and it's a good hotel if you spend the day sightseeing and just want to rest. Kitchen is fully equipped and a convenient 24hr supermarket just across the road.

The CityStay hotel is just a short walk from Bow Rd tube, which is about half an hour from central London. A family member and I were both staying and we wanted individual rooms without paying too much so it served that purpose. The hotel will give you a front door key so you can come back when you like,... More
