Stayed at City Best on the last day of October, checking out on the 1st of November. We stayed in room 15 and got up early around 0800hrs as the wife was starting work 10 minutes walk away at 0915hrs that morning. She was in the shower 5 minutes before complaining that there wasn`t any hot water coming out. Using... More

Although it was reasonably priced and the staff hard-working and friendly, the hotel was 'tired' and we had several issues which, to be fair, they did their best to sort out. Positives - friendly staff, help- yourself breakfasts, reasonably priced Rooms tidied daily and fresh towels left out Off-road parking Negatives - noisy, doors didn't fit or open properly Drawers...

Good points are the cooked breakfast and free parking. It is also near to the underground, with the bus around the corner. The negatives are many, the breakfast room which is tightly packed and you may have to wait your turn. The actual bedroom is small, and the windows were not properly fitted with the result that you cannot locked... More

Stayed here at the beginning of July as it was the cheapest I could find with reach of the City. The reception staff were welcoming and friendly for check in and check out. Considering the price the room seemed very clean. However, although this is a budget hotel and the on site staff are good, there is no excuse for... More

We stayed here on our last day in London as the previous hotel (The Ridgeway in Chingford) was full and we couldn't extend our booking. I was travelling with my husband a my 5yo son. The area around the hotel is residential, so it's a bit quiet. Room was OK (we had room 13, one big bed, one small bed),... More

The best I can say about this hovel is, it had running water not hot but running! Alarm bells started ringing as soon as we entered Ilford, the place is an absolute dump. The hotel was filthy, outdated and it stank. I have stayed all round the world in hostels etc...and this is by far the worst! How they have... More

Live 240 volt wires protruding from wall next to bed 3. Broken shower 4. Hot water came out of cold tap and vice... More

I travel as a living, working in different cities one week to the next, and hands down, this is the worse hotel I've ever stopped in. When I arrived to the hotel, the receptionist didn't seem to have a clue what he was doing, it took me 45 minutes to check in, by which point I was already late for... More

Good points is cooked breakfast and parking. Bad points is room is poor, wardrobe on brink of collapse, NO hot water from sink and shower rail broken. Asked staff to sort it and got no action. Would only recommend here if your on budget and basically if you need a bed for night.

I arrived at the hotel at the begining of the week with my Mother. The first thing that struck me was that we were expected to pay the whole bill upfront. Circumstances were such that we were unable to do this so we were told it was possible to pay for one night for now, which we did. When we... More
