I stayed here from March 26 - March 29. All in all the hotel is nice, clean, friendly staff. Breakfast was good. The menu is as everywhere else : ham, eggs, croissants, bread, butter, gem, etc. The coffee however was poor. They only had instant coffee or some sort or coffee mixture in a pot. I don't drink coffee, but... More

Very inexpensive option in a very expensive city. The hotel is about 30-40 minutes by tube from Central London, which is a little long but doable. The staff was exceptionally friendly throughout the hotel and the hotel pub. Included breakfast was pretty good. Room was small and plain but clean and functional. Loved having a pub to go to every... More

If you think this is the Ruskin Hotel near the British Museum, IT'S NOT!!! It is actually the Ruskin Arms but it doesn't say that online (It says Ruskin Hotel). I booked this hotel by accident and ended up staying far from the center of London. The experience would have been slightly better if the tube stations leading up to... More

Good Evening, I am very sorry to hear about your review. The tube system is east ham is very reliable and only rarely closed for maintenance on Sundays. We are the ONLY Ruskin Hotel in London, the other Ruskin is a Bed and Breakfast. They have a fantastic reputation but we are ranked 150 places above them on tripadvisor. Hotel... More

The hotel has been recently modernised and the rooms are neat and were clean. However the location of the hotel is shocking and the parking was limited to we didn't manage to get parked the second night. The worst point was the food - it has got to be the worst I've had in a hotel. I had sausage and... More

Good Afternoon, I am very sorry to hear about your poor experience. I wish i was informed of this during your stay. I think it is unfair to state that the area is 'shocking'. We have been open for nearly 2 years and non of our guests have had any issues with regards to the area. I agree that there... More

So when I booked this hotel directly via their website it offers payment by American Express which I filled in. When I arrived at the hotel the receptionist said they didn't accept American Express.

Good Afternoon Luke, I am extremely sorry that you have had a poor experience with us at Ruskin Hotel. It is simply not acceptable.

I booked this hotel through an internet booking service - I was looking for comfortable accommodation during an overnight business trip. The location is 5 mins walk away from east Ham tube station which takes you to the city in about 15 minutes. Whilst this isn't a full service business or tourist hotel, for the money it's a belter!

As other reviewers state, this is not a city centre hotel which means travelling to the tourist areas of central London. Handy for O2 Arena though. If you don't mind the bus or nearby East Ham Tube trips, it is a relative bargain. Recently refurbished with pub underneath; we managed to park behind electric-locking gate (area is mainly Permit Holders... More

Rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast was nice (although alot of it seemed to be packaged sliced meats / cheeses from tescos). Car park available - you have to get there early as there are limited spaces. Friendly staff and overall nice location within easy walk of shops, restaurants and tube station. Good value for money.

We stayed here for our mini trip to London. It is a bit of a journey to central London it is true BUT for the price and the amazing staff its worth that extra 10 minutes on the tube.
