I stayed here for 1 night and that was 1 night to long. I had no bath plug and no plug for the sink. I decided to have a shower and the converter came off in my hand so was unable to have a shower either, had to leave the hotel without have a wash. I decided not to have... 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

I stayed at this place for a couple of nights in September 2014. I asked to move room because of bed bugs, they agreed that I would be moved by the evening. When I came back in the evening they said I was still in the same room and not to worry because they had cleaned the room. I said... More

Okay so this isn't 4 star luxury, but it is good value for money! We stayed for 4 nights in 219 which was right at the top of the building, a lot of stairs but hey we are young and fit! The room was just what we needed, we had plenty of space, a comfy bed with fresh clean sheets,... More

I feel that the other reviews of this place are a little unfair. I stayed here two nights and was impressed by both the price and the cleanliness. The hotel was recommended to me by a friend who described it the same way I would: basic, clean, cheap and central. It does not only have great tube links but is... More

I agree with sirjoker's review in every respect: 107((http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowUserReviews-g186338-d568185-r194955148-City_View_Hotel_London-London_England.html#CHECK_RATES_CONT I was staying in the room 107 too. The only good thing about it is the vicinity of the bus and underground station. Unfortunately, my friends booked and payed for B&B in advance for 2 nights without reading the reviews. The breakfast is inedible. They serve neither English nor the continental... More
