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

Don't ever stay here, it's a rip off being charged £360 for a triple room we didn't ask for, crack in the tv, tiles off the wall and the dirty shower we have to share is at the opposite of d building. Wrecked our stay and too overcharged, breakfast, what breakfast?7

The hotel is only 5 minutes away from Bow Road station. In the same street there are several supermarkets, taxi cabs agents, take-away shops and pubs. The receptionist we met in the morning welcomed us by carrying our luggage to the room downstairs, he then explained that there is a help yourself kitchen next to our room. Kitchen is open... More

Staff were not very helpful, extremely rude and ignorant. Beds were hard and uncomfortable. Rooms were dirty and shower was mouldy. Toilet did not flush and Spoilt my holiday. Hotel was cheap but I would rather pay extra for a better experience. Don't ever stay here!!

Business trip for 4 days. Had my budget been higher I would not have stayed in this "hotel". Rooms are small but at least the bed is comfortable and the shower does work. WiFi connection was very very poor, ended up logging into the free wifi offered by the bank next door which helped. Breakfast, well first time that I... More

I was there for 2 nights. Everything was OK, the price, the room, etc.... it was clean and near a underground station. For this price and for London, this hotel was fine. The staff that work in the hotel could be a little bit more friendly...

It is a basic hotel, but it is very much expected given the reasonable price. Our room & bathroom were clean and nicely cleaned every single day - that's a bonus! Comfortable bed (although may be a bit small if you are of a larger complexion, but more then enough for average size couple), 24/7 hr kitchen with basics like... More

the bedrooms were very small and the bathroom and shower weren't very neat and there was some mould in the shower. Overall, it was very common old fashioned. But on the positive side it was very nice that we could use the kitchen 24/7. Breakfast was indeed included, but you do have to do your own dishes like in a... More
