Room is predictable Holiday Inn, which is good for London. Clean, reasonable breakfast, air conditioned (it was very hot the 2 days we were in London). But for 233 Pounds the price was over the top. We could have done better. And the internet was slow as molasses, I measured it at less than 1 mb, could barely download email... More

At first we were impressed, a modern room and air con in London at the hottest time of the year, but soon the problems came thick and fast. Broken air con that sounds like you are in a battle field all night - it's worse when switched off than when it is on. The shower flooded the bathroom, there was... More

I booked this hotel via hotwire bidding system. I have never been to Shordeich before - lovely area, lots of young people, many bars and restaurants. Arrived late night, front desk was very helpful. We were with two young boys, and the opening sofa was too small for them - we turned to the front desk and they arranged it... More

I usually stay in the one nr Oxford Circus which is really fab, but there was no room there so I went for this one. It appeared quite a bit cheaper, until I realised too late I had been charged 50 quid on top for a sofabed for our 11 year old! Breakfast was adequate. You either like the area... More

I know this area of London very well as I used to work on Brick Lane and would often venture here to look at street art. There's a lot of good clubs and nightlife around, markets, and so on. It's perfect as a walking base to go to Brick Lane, Spitalfields Market, Columbia Road, etc…or just to explore east London.... More

Upon arrival we started to get irritated as we should have booked parking but weren't aware. Didn't know where on earth we were going to park but the staff re arranged things and made a parking spot for us (my husband is disabled). Staff were really helpful and friendly - yes, the air con isn't the best, but a staff... More

The best location, clean, tidy hotel. A problem with the air con in the room made the sleep not so good. The staff brilliant . I would avoid breakfast better to go to a nearby cafe. As its express very busy breakfast but adequate, just not peaceful. Good value great staff.

Stayed at the hotel in early June, the reception is functional and the reception staff were attentive and knowledgeable. Hotel overall is clean and well decorated, the room had the usual hotel facilities although the door opening onto the shower door was a little cumbersome. Earplugs provided as part of the room facilities but luckily not required. Breakfast was okay... More

Hard to fault this hotel for business travel - fast, efficient check in and a clean, comfortable, quiet room. Very reasonable price too, I'll certainly stay here again when next in the area. The only downside is parking but thats not unusual for a central london location. If you're leaving early in the morning save yourself some money and park... More

Staying in Shoreditch

Neighborhood Profile
Shoreditch
The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well connected transportation links dotting its perimeter, along with an ever increasing variety of shops, hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighborhood. There's a lingering post-industrial grit about Shoreditch, but because it shares a border with “The City” financial district, the influence from its upscale neighbor can result in fascinating outcomes.
