Just came back from a quick trip to East London and staying at the Avo Hotel was certainly a good call. The room was tiny but tastefully finished; beds are comfortable, everything immaculate, within a short walking distance from the tube, the receptionist eager to help (though if you are anal about what time the room gets cleaned and these...

Very strange to enter a hotel/b&b through the doors of a restaurant! However the welcoming staff sorted me out with a parking permit and showed me to my tiny room. If you're larger than the average folk I'd give this place a miss as you'll never make it up the narrow staircase, but if you can you will be very... More

As I entered through the glass door into a small, functional sitting area with an open kitchen, I had a bad feeling that I've accidentally booked a B&B in what otherwise is a restaurant. I was immediately greeted very friendly and guided to my room, which was probably good, as Avo Hotel is a lot larger than what one might... More

The hotel is absolutely gorgeous. Our room was huge and included a spotless kitchenette. Elemis toiletries were a definite bonus! Although there is no car park we were able to order a cheap permit and park close by. Staff are so friendly. Will definitely be back

Very friendly family run hotel. Very clean, smart and stylish room with lovely comfortable mattress with lots little extras like a choice of different teas etc. and fluffy bathrobe. We had a lot of luggage which the staff helped us up the stairs with. Staff also very helpful in returning a valuable wristband which we had left behind. Next time... More

Couldn't have chosen a better place to stay, the staff helped us out on arrival with parking, you can park outside if you can get a space or there are permits which you can buy from the hotel. My party and I stayed in room 7, and thus was themed around 007 which I thought was quite cool. The room... More

I'll start with the disqualifiers. The room is tiny, and it's through a restaurant and up a narrow, winding stair. If that's a problem, now you know. But I found the tiny room extremely comfortable with windows I could open, a fabulous mattress, plush robe, and fittings I'd expect in a much more expensive hotel. It's clearly a family business...

Most of the reviews are misleading; Avo hotel is not a boutique 'hotel', but a mere hostel above a small Indian takeaway shop. There is no lobby, no lift, very narrow staircase, very tiny rooms with no room for luggage; extremely tiny shower cubical that barely fits one person; noisy due to very thin walls; no tube nearby only buses...

Dear Alexander, We do acknowledge that our tiny rooms are tiny, and that's exactly how we describe them on our website - we think it's only fair to be transparent. I was hurt by your description of us as a hostel though - we have memory foam beds, DVD-playing flatscreens and Elemis toiletries, which are far more than one might... More

I stayed here with my family on vacation and we adored the Avo. It is owned by a very friendly family who clearly care about their customers. The beds were comfortable and the room was nicely decorated and provided everything that we needed for our stay. My personal favorite part of the room was the waterfall shower. After a long... More
