On my recent stay at this small family- run boutique hotel in Dalston, just off Kingsland Road, I stayed on the top floor of the hotel and found everything to be fantastic. The room was clean and well- appointed, with excellent linen and a comfortable bed. The Elemis products were a quality addition, the towelling robe so soft I actually... More

Dear Viv, So glad you enjoyed your stay! It made me smile that you noticed our robes in particular - I discovered them myself while I was travelling - and then went to an awful lot of effort to source the exact same ones for Avo... See you again soon we hope! Sunny More

I really like this place. Yes, the rooms are small- exactly as advertised- if you want a room the size of a ballroom, choose somewhere else! They are also well equipped, clean, comfortable and have bags of personality. There's more than a touch of bohemian chic about the place. It's family run with lots of personal touches that aren't available... More

I'm a quite picky person when it comes to hotel as I like unique quirky places and this place is definitely not far from that! Decent bed, not great pillows though. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great DVD selection. Really nice bathroom. Very clean overall. Great little family business.

We stayed for one night in a standard double. While it was very small, it was very clean and well equipped - free WiFi, DVD library etc. Unfortunately, because the room was so small it got very stuffy at night (wasn't even in the summer!) And it meant we were tossing and turning a lot trying to sleep. There is... More

Dear Louise, Thanks for staying with us and writing a review. We're so pleased that you liked the amenities; we also appreciate the feedback on our water bottles and are now going to upgrade them to styles that are more water-mark resistant. Also, unlike many other hotels, all our windows do open, so that's something you might find helps if... More

I had a double bed in a single sized room. I had to keep leaning over the bed when walking past the television as it was so tight. TV, bathroom, comfortable bed is usually all I need for a business trip. This hotel was trying to do more than the area would expect as there were nice touches such as... More

We stayed here for a total of 8 nights. The first six nights were booked when our flat rental cancelled three days before our stay. Avo's kitchenette suite turned out to be less room but a good substitute for a flat rental. The area is not a tourist area. St. Paul’s Cathedral is about 3 miles south, for example. We... More

Hello, We really appreciate your detailed review and are so glad that we were able to help when the other place fell through. I know that you were with us for a while and were able to take advantage of our extra facilities (how odd about the knife - it must have been 'borrowed' by a previous guest - we'll... More

We stayed for 4 nights last June 2014. Our room was tiny, with very homey design, great toiletries from elemis (made in china not in the u.k.). The stairs were very narrow and it was quite noisy during the night. Although the metro was just a few steps away, the hotel was still faraway from the main city. It was... More

Stayed on a Saturday night in the top floor suite which was compact, but bijou. Comfy bed, clean room, amazingly peaceful & quiet. Breakfast was good quality basic stuff, more than adequate. Staff helpful & friendly. Overall great value for money

I stayed for a night and the staff were so accommodating and friendly. Also the station is very close to the station which is incredibly convenient. However, the couple in the next room was having the loudest and most animated sex and it went on forever - the walls were so thin I felt like they were in the room... More

Dear Susanna, I'm so sorry that you could hear the unfortunate noises! We appreciate you noting that it's not quite our fault but we still know it must have been frustrating. If this ever happens again, please know that telling reception puts the onus on us to do something about it, and we would happily oblige and ask the noisy... More
