Nice modern hotel, small but modern rooms. Good room cleaning service. Large breakfast buffet with many different choices of breakfast dishes, hot and cold. Nice restaurant / snack bar - good food. Easy access to London Tube and just a couple of blocks away from Tower Bridge and boat service on the Thames.

Some people complained that the room were a little tight and by north american standards I can see the point but we had no issues.

The lobby has recently been refurbished and although there was a short wait at reception to check in, the staff were all helpful and attentive. My room was small but clean and comfortable.... More

We enjoyed our stay at this very good hotel in London. The staff was very efficient . The morning buffet was very fine and the room was clean. The location is very near Aldgate East, so it was fast to come around in the city.
