I guess the right summary of my experience is: it should not have been less since it would have been terrible. The room is already a bit older which is visible. The breakfast is good but dinner in the restaurant was not impressive. Staff was great and I had a good sleep.

Don't expect anything special at the hotel. I mean NOTHING! About a half of a grade above a Hostel at best. It might be do-able for an overnight stay, but the Stratford area is just so dismal and depressing it feels like a third world country. The room is bitterly tiny, and don't expect ANY extras like in other Holiday... More

Myself and my wife stayed at the hotel over marathon weekend (25-26 April 2015) as it was nicely located for the DLR to Greenwich. We paid for the privilege and the room price on this occasion (£150 for the night) cannot really be justified but you have to grin and bear it in London on marathon weekend. The hotel is... More

This is your average hotel in a pretty boring neighborhood. It satisfies all the standard requirements but there are some things that really needs to be improved: The breakfast - not lots of options other than the standard scrambled eggs, almost no veggies at all! Rooms - the toilet had a weird smell and the rooms are quite small. Our... More

Don't expect any fancy frills, but this is a solidly good, clean hotel, well-managed and well-maintained. I've now visited twice, and don't intend to look elsewhere for my regular short visits, where price is an important factor for me, but not at the cost of staying somewhere grubby or properly uncomfortable. So - the experience. My requests for a quiet... More

Reasonable cost and we were allocated a room on the top floor at the back so it was very quiet. You could open the windows which was lovely. Twin room fine for size , downside no safe in the room although there were some by reception. Helpful reception staff. Top tip , if you are tired after walking round sightseeing... More

This is your standard Holiday Inn Express with the new look rooms. Worthy of note are: just a 10-minute walk from the Stratford tube station (use the footbridge over the line having turned right out of the "town exit"; turn left at base of ramp on the order side and keep straight on), a friendly reception team, 5 (yes, 5)...
