Never stayed here before but if we were visiting East London again we would not look anywhere else. Staff were friendly, room was basic but comfortable. No bar but local supermarket down on your left. Local bus service from Stratford very good but stations for bus and trains are a short walk to the left. We did venture into London... More

The Indian men at the reception of this Vikings hotel are fraudsters who cannot communicate well and cause people unnecessary inconveniences, i booked a double room for myself and my wife for 7 nights paid with cash 400 pounds only for them to come in the morning to claim that they never sold the room to me for a couple.

I've been a week in this hotel and I had no complaints about any aspect. You can get the underground just getting on the bus outside the hotel(25 or 86 both are good) and be in the centre of london in 20 minutes. Big mall, supermarkets and some restaurants are also near the hotel. At night you can rest well... More

The hotel was basic but clean and welcoming and the room was a reasonable size. Breakfast was basic but ample for the inclusive price and the free and safe parking suited my requirements, hence the overall 'very good' rating for my visit to London. The Stratford station, for us, was a ten minute walk and there is a Sainsbury's and... More

Stayed for 2 nights in Feb 14. Very unreasonable reception man took nearly 30 mins booking us in and asking for I.d (which was not available at the time). His views would seem to be very homophobic. Room was clean and tidy overall.
