Stayed here to attend an event with friends. Tube station around the corner and hotel is based very close to brick lane, mainly near all the curry houses! Reception very friendly and had no problems at all, nice bar downstairs also. Would stay here again

Now I'm not usually a complained... but when you want a hotel, you want somewhere you can get a good nights kip. Friday ..Noisy neighbours, had to call security, seriously. Sounded like they were tearing the room apart, paper thin walls. Saturday ..Club downstairs, booming music, summer with windows open, close the windows, music still thumping, floor vibrating. Fight breaks... More

We were there for 3 nights, with 3 people in our group. The rooms were clean, although the beds were NOT comfortable and there was a lot of noise from the hallways and other rooms. Location was okay, close to a subway stop, but not in a great part of town. View from our room was to the street in... More

I booked this hotel for almost a week as it is close to where I work (I work on middle of Brick Lane), and I occasionally want to lessen the affects that commuting from Hampshire daily takes on me. The hotel room had the best view over the City. Yes, it's a little noisy if you have the windows open…shutting... More

This hotel is affordable, clean and somewhat comfortable. Location wasn't so bad since it was a minute walk from Aldgate East underground which was 20-25 min from central London by tube & 7ish min to stratford station (Westfield Mall). One thing that did ruin the experience was that the guests in this hotel, and locals were loud and noisy. Made... More

My boyfriend organised us a trip to London and we decided to stay the night. We found this hotel and the price was good for what it came with. In the room there was a double and two single beds, we had are own bathroom, TV, air conditioning, a wardrobe and a lot of space. The beds were very comfortable.... More

I took soneof the reviews with pinch of salt as I have stayed at the ibis round the corner and didn't find the area scary at all. I wasvtaken back by the entrance as just a doorway but that was dispelled as soon as I entered. The staff were friendly and polite throughout our stay. We stayed on the fourth... More

Lovely staff, helpful and gave transport advice. £74 double room without breakfast (preferred to relax and find food after check out) Room was immaculate, was on the 6th floor so nice view in the evening. Our room (which I think all rooms include) had a little seating area and table so it felt like an extended lounge. TV with usb... More

OK hotel, close to East Aldgate metrostation. Breakfast is OK too, but overpriced, better to go in La Dulce cafe around the corner. WiFI worked perfectly all the time. Parking at back entrance, not operated by hotel and about 25 pounds per day, in open air but more or les safe.
