I read some of the reviews on here after booking, and was, quite frankly, terrified. However was going on a hen night which was already expensive and didn't want to spend money on a place that I was going to be in for about 3 hours. Actually it was ok. It looks a bit like Bates motel, but I found... More

Don't go here if you can't sleep through the noise of trains: they run right past the building and there can be a lot of rattling. Accommodation is pretty basic, but was clean. Breakfast is lacklustre: only cereal they seem to have is corn flakes, and every morning they got our order slightly wrong. Room is pretty small and doesn't... More

As someone who has worked in hotels for a very long time I was appalled at the standard or should I say lack of standard at this hotel. It seems very odd that good reviews have appeared immediately after I gave a critical analysis to one of the family owners who also work here. Non smoking rooms, No signs in... More

Great budget hotel in bethnal green, breakfast was free with the room. Lots of bars and places to eat in this lively bit of London. Room was basic but cheap. I can recommend the salmon and ball pub for a good night out

By London standards very inexpensive, however even the "free" breakfast is pretty scant and service lean. I usually love an English breakfast, but the second morning I skipped the sausage because it was such a low grade that i ended up having Tums for dessert. Room clean, but not serviced during my two nights there. Walk the block to the... More

I arrived and was told that there was a problem with my room, so I would have to go to their other branch down the road. I went there and there was no change when I paid, so I was told to ask for it the following morning (they did give me approximate change the next morning, but 18p less... More

if you are considering staying here, DON'T. A cardboard box by the side of the road would be better. Dirty rooms, broken bathroom fittings, trains right outside the window. And when I left in the morning at 7am there was a man asleep on the reception couch under a blanket!!!!! I was booked here for 2 nights, after one night... More

This place was beyond disgusting. I stayed with my friend in a tiny, hot double room. It was meant to be a twin, but they got our booking wrong. The bathroom door had no lock and bits of the handle were actually falling off. People attempted to get into our room twice during the night on separate occasions. I ended... More

I discovered this hotel by searching for a place to stay for a night close to a subway station - and this certainly is close. It is located right next to Bethnal green station - which is great when you arrive late at night - but it also means that the trains are quite loud when you are in your... More
