We arrived at the "Hotel" and were told to wait in a lounge area which was also used by the workers children. we waited for about 40 minutes until our rooms were ready. when we got up to the rooms they were clean enough so no problems there. we looked out of the window to check out any view but...

The hotel is located very well. Bethnal Green is just a round a corner of Liverpool Street, Bricklane and Shoreditch. But it's far from Central London. Hotel is under reworks so new things mixed with old ones. Service stuff very quick and professional. You have SKY TV but without card it's useless. If you like trains you can watch and... More

13 girls Stayed here for 1 night & that was enough. I left the hotel at 8.30am as I'd not had a wink of sleep due to the noise. Music pounding ALL night, trains passing every 4 minutes. The sheets were clean, I checked before I paid the rest of the balance. Bathroom was manky, bedroom was like a cell... More

I could easily slate this place and complain along with everyone one else ...But I'm not going to. It cost £45 a night WITH BREAKFAST, walk out the front door and straight into Bethnal Green tube station. 15 minute walk into the city, 10 minutes into Whitechapel. What do you want for that much?

Very dirty rooms. My room had filthy walls and the bath/shower were also filthy. Service nonexistent, things like greeting guests really would make such a difference. Also very noisy. The hotel is next to Bethnal Green railway station so trains go past every few minutes. But even worse than this, on the Saturday night there was some loud dance music... More

smelly, dirty, very noisy... all the worst thing you can imagine. I don't understand how then can act as a hotel, I think that place should be closed by the sanitary reasons. do not stay there!!!!!!!!

Dirty, mouldy decor in the bathroom. Kettle but no tea or coffee etc. Train noise all night but don't worry the sound of the music from a neighbouring night club will drown most of it out. Night staff sleeping in the lounge so couldn't even go there to escape the noise. Look at pictures of it from the outside on... More
