I stayed two nights on my own in one of the compact doubles. I understand those who have reviewed the room as small, but for me it was fine. There was room for my case to open, to walk around the bed and for a desk. The welcome I had was lovely and when I asked about a snack (it was quite late when I arrived) I was offered a choice of items from breakfast which was just perfect and very kind.
The information in the room shows the love and care that the owners have put into this hotel including restaurant recommendations, wifi password, a map and other local information.
I stayed here because I was going to a wedding in Stoke Newington. I think the location would have been an issue for me if my interest was in central London, but I was very glad of the opportunity to stay in a new area of London and to be looked after so well.
Breakfast was nice. Reception was able to call taxis quickly whenever I needed one, and it cost £22 in a taxi to Paddington.
