After competing in a dance show at the Hackney Empire, myself, my mum and my two sisters had a 'family room' booked for one night. Found it very difficult to locate (it is hidden away behind a derelict building off a side road), and although the staff were pleasant enough, the room was far from 'lovely'! The bedside lights did... More

The room needed total refurbishment, carpet dirty, tea coffee tray not clean. Shower had no hot water, had to use cups to wash hair. Might be cheap but not cheap enough. I would not recommend this place because it's more a hostel than an hotel.

This was used as a rest stop for a festival in Victoria Park, so was a good location for that as it was only a short walk to the destination. The hotel was good was the one night due to the location, and the staff were friendly too. Some issues with the room but no major problems. Would use again... More

Stayed for 1 night and we was happy with service received. Clean room which was a triple group room. Noise levels from others in rooms nearby could of been kept more under supervision, however was a weekend and was tolerable. Overall great location in Hackney close to shops and high street and once again reasonably clean and comfortable

Let’s start as we mean to go on with this review. I’ve stayed in some pretty bad places in my time and usually due to having to economise, but on this occasion, we figured that this hotel was well placed for our needs and not terribly extortionate. We got that slightly wrong. The hotel is situated down a side street... More

We booked this hotel as a room to stay in while we were at a wedding down the road. This is the worst place I have ever stayed (and I have traveled to quite a few countries). The problem with this hotel is that it costs £120 for a room - so you aren't talking cheap - but looks like... More

Staff were friendly and helpful, room was small but what we needed, we only used it for a base, could have done with slightly larger shower area as more of a cabin feel to it, and facilities could do with refurbishment in the bathroom too, little smell of something in there, apart from that it was good and clean in...

This is what I describe as place that provides a roof over your head. Most guests seem to be tradesmen working in the area. The bedroom/bed were compact but clean. The shower was not much more than a dribble in a small cubicle ( there's a joke there somewhere!). I have used it twice when staying overnight to see bands... More
