Stayed here for 1 night on business, as my usual hotel was booked out.
The location of the hotel is excellent for those who need to be in East London or The City. With numerous bus routes and Underground/Overground links within easy reach it makes it simple to get to where you need to go.
Staff seemed friendly, check-in was quick and the breakfast selection was adequate if not astounding.
The downside, for me, was the rooms. My room was spacious, but the decor was just bland and uninviting. It lacked any real style, and just seemed to be as minimal as possible, and not in a designer sort of way. The chair and desk weren't particularly useful to work, and it didn't have free wi-fi.
It wasn't an awful experience, but I suspect it gets a lot of transient trade from people who couldn't find somewhere else and as such they don't particularly "wow" you with facilities. While I wouldn't refuse to stay here again, it wouldn't be my first choice of hotels especially for the (rather expensive) price paid.
