We stayed here after a night out and didn't expect much. We booked a family room which came with a double and 2 single beds which took up almost all the floor space. The shower room was the tiniest I've ever seen but did the job. Unlike some others we did have a problem finding it, tucked away down a... More

Chose this hotel because my boyfriend and I were attending Lovebox Festival in Victoria Park. Read some reviews on this website and booked the room with an open mind. It was pretty hard to find, however a taxi driver was very helpful. Pleasantly surprised at the inside of the hotel at reception; seemed modern and open. The day staff were... More

The hotel is in perfect location for lovebox (festival at Victoria park). 24 hour reception was perfect. The hotel was very clean, however a few minor faults was not having a fridge and also that the hotel didn't sell food or drink. The staff were friendly, particularly the cleaner and the guy working the day shifts on our weekend stay.... More

We stayed here to attend a nearby music event. Very difficult to find as it is in a back alley. Found toenail clippings on our floor, previous guests items in drawers, mould in the bathroom. The bed was clean and tidy. Shower was filthy. This hotel has very bad noise problems from slamming fire doors. Bad soundproofing means you can... More

This place looked really uninviting as we approached the hotel, but inside it's clean and secure. The shower didn't work very well, but the beds were large and comfortable. Perfect location for events in the Hackney area. Staff were very polite and helpful. Less than 5 minute walk from London Fields train station. If you stay here, walk to Broadway... More

Over the last few years I have used this hotel and always find the staff helpful and the rooms clean. This is a budget hotel , so your expectations are not great. It is always clean and the staff are helpful. Free parking in London is a real bonus. Highly recommended and never had a dirty room. Hackney is now... More
