The main advantage of this hotel is that Croydon East is some 15 minutes away from Gatwick. I was standing in the queue for passport control and an hour asleep in the hotel. The hotel itself is a bit farther from the Croydon East station than desirable when coming with a suitcase, but is not a bad walk when not in a hurry or when loaded with baggage. Cab may run GBP 7.00 or so. There is a bus service from close to the hotel to Croydon East. (Don't go to Croydon West bus station by mistake). London Victoria and London Bridge are also some 15-20 minutes by train. Croydon East is an important terminal and a lot of fast trains stop there.
The room itself was not that great, not that bad. Clean and plenty of hot water in the shower. Floor clean. Slept well. Internet connection poor as the room was far from the router. Fridge didn't work, could not keep my beer nice and cold. A small Tesco is about a minute away, and a small Sainsbury and larger Waitrose are almost at the station.
Of all the different Flexistay hotels, this one was the least desirable. It is good enough and of reasonable value.
