It was a warm night but the rooms air conditioning was nearly silent so we put that on for the night. Only negative was the wifi was a bit slow and... More

We stayed at the Avo for 6 nights and was very comfortable although small. The bed was king-size and tempur mattress was so comfy. We were there watching our granddaughter at Hackney Empire which the hotel is very convenient for. The local bus and train routes are excellent. The family who run Avo are so helpful and kind they recently... More

We stayed here for a few nights on a recent trip to London. We needed a hotel close to an event in Hackney that we were attending. The Avo was a decent basic hotel. The folks at the desk were lovely. I can be a bit of primadonna, but this fit the bill for cheap and cheerful! The walk to... More

I could not rate this hotel highly enough. The family are very welcoming and are helpful. The room we had was a compact double and provided us with all that we needed. There was air conditioning which was very needed and a useful guide in the room on all that was on offer.

This hotel was perfect for us. We needed a place to stay overnight after celebrating a friend's wedding nearby. It was clear from the hotel's description that the rooms were small, but all we really needed was a bed for the night with a degree of comfort, and from that point of view, the Avo exceeded our expectations. Described as... More

I feel like I do have to comment on the size of the room. I had read reviews and knew it would be small, but I really was surprised at how small it ended up being. Barely enough room to shuffle around the bed, on all three sides. Would not recommend if you want to spend any time in the... More

Dear Steve, We're so pleased you thought the bed was comfy. Our 2 tiny rooms are really quite tiny, as you note, but next time feel free to book one of the larger rooms - they feel much more spacious :) Sunny More

Really great place to stay, right in the heart of Dalston. Owners were very helpful, esp taking out bags up the flights of stairs! Our room was the top floor King Suite, which was excellent, with nice shower-room! The owners helped us to find nice place to eat out(see The Diner on corner of Dalston Rd & Kingsland Rd, as...

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
