Comfy bed, crisp white sheets,a clean room, a bathroom with everything at hand, and a .good breakfast. More importantly a warm welcome from Mahak, he was charming and nothing was too much trouble....thank you Mahak you made our stay! We were visiting our son who lives just around the corner so.....we will return,excellent stay.

I originally had two nights booked at the Avo, but added a third night. The family who runs the hotel is very accommodating and helpful. The rooms are small, but extremely clean and the bed was very comfortable. The air conditioner worked great. I was visiting family in Stoke Newington/Hackney so this was a perfect location for walking everywhere, I... More

My wife and I stayed here earlier this month for 2 nights when our son was getting married. Everyone we met at the hotel were extremely helpful and friendly. This hotel has been converted from what was a shop, so is relatively small. An advantage of this is the personal service you get. They try to provide services they think... More

Stayed here for just one night. The room was clean but very small with a lot of black decor - not to my taste at all. The bathroom was tiny and extremely dark (again lots of black). Personally I think that the quality of the bed linen is paramount in a hotel and one of the main factors I judge... More

Hello, Thanks for staying with us and writing us a review. I'd like to apologise that you didn't enjoy the bedding though. Our sheets are all 100% Egyptian cotton and I do hope you'll give us a chance again to impress you. We've been given feedback that most guests prefer the sheets to be soft rather than 'crisp' so that... More

If you like Dalston then you'll probably like this hotel. It's family run and they were very friendly. I stayed in the top floor "suite" and it was actually pretty nice. I paid £109 for the night via laterooms but didn't stay for breakfast. Everything was clean, the bathroom was great with a nice shower. The photos do make it... More

Avo was recommended to me by James who runs the 'Luxury Inn' quite nearby! Just a one night stay to catch up with my son who lives between the two. Premier Inn nearby soooo much more expensive and this little boutique hotel was very good value for money. 'Little' being the operative word. A very neat transformation from dinky post... More

Hello, What a lovely review! We're so pleased that our friends at the local inn recommended us. We Dalstonites are a friendly bunch :) My favourite part of our hotel rooms is our memory foam mattresses too, (but then I think sleep is very important!) See you again, Sunny More

I always stay in small boutique hotels when traveling and even though the Avo Hotel was advertised as a boutique hotel, I venture to differ. It was more like a youth hostel. Very basic. The room was so small, there was no where to put anything. I tried to work on my computer, no place to work. No place for... More

Dear Francine, Thanks for taking the time to give us feedback and we're sorry to have let you down. Some things we cannot help - especially the size of our smallest, most affordable rooms. Also, we know that Dalston is not to everyone's taste - but it does have hip credentials! We will look into more storage space in the... More

Stayed here for 2 nights with a friend on a w-end trip to London. I guess the hotel has ok rates for expensive London and we wanted to stay in Dalston which doesn't have that many hotel options available (yet..).

Stopped at the Avo for recent business trip, instead of a 'big chain' hotel. The Avo worked out great, and would willingly return. Very comfortable room, helpful staff, breakfast was just how I like it. The location was perfect for my work in Dalston, though I would also use the Avo for other London locations, as Dalston has great transport... More
