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

I stay here about 3 times per year (twice this week). It's a great base from which to visit my clients in Hackney, Dalston and Clapton. I have always received good and friendly service from the staff. This year it's obvious that a program of renovation is underway, with fresh paint and new bed mattresses. The showeroom/w's are en-suite, but... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as we were attending a wedding in Hackney and wanted something reasonable. The person who greeted us was very friendly and even took one of our cases up to our room. We couldnt have picked a better place as the wedding was at the town hall which was within walking distance.The only... More

I have to agree with the other reviews with the "poor" rating. The service exists, but is still a bit under par. To get to the hotel you have to walk through a not very appealing - in fact a bit scary - alley. In the room there was a dirty/dusty bed and a small bathroom. We ended up trying... More

I have stayed in the City Inn Express many times when in the area on business, and to be honest I would say that it 'does what it says on the tin'. This place is well located, clean and has a small amount of on-site parking. The large downstairs lounge complete with big-screen TV is a warm and hospitable chill-out... More

Me and my partner stayed here recently, we travelled up to London to see a show so wanted somewhere cheap and basic to stay the night. The hotel was clean, however the noise levels were unacceptable.
