Beside a busy road this looks like a rather rundown building and your first reaction may well be OMG! But don''t be put off. Inside the carpets are old, the walls scuffed and it feels very budget but they've tried really hard. The rooms are small but the beds are so comfortable with crisp white bed linen. The shower room... More

This would have to be the worst hotel I have stayed in! Even if you are travelling on a low budget, bypass this establishment....on arrival the person on reception had NO customer service qualities or even an interest in welcoming us. We had to lug our cases up 3 flights of very narrow steep stairs to get to our room.... More

When we arrived the door was opened by an unsmiling man who didn't even bother to say hello. Our room was up three flights of stairs, was very small, the curtains were falling down and wouldn't close properly, the street was very noisy with sirens and traffic roaring past all night. The bed was OK but the pillows were sparse... More

Possibly the worst hotel I have ever stayed in in my life. The staff were ignorant, didn`t speak, ignored my email request for an early check in (although wasn`t really a problem as we could leave luggage there). When we finally arrived back at the hotel later that day, we entered our room to find a man praying in there!!... More

Visited during the winter, the room was cozy, the shower was hot and there was decent wifi. The people in charge are very friendly. There are lots of 'free' stuff in the kitchen and dining area. You can have fruits, cereal, milk, cookies, crisps - all free of charge and at any hr of the day. It's not a 5... More

Ok and polite hotel staff but the rooms were dark and dirty. I had a room with shared Bathroom. The bathroom was disgusting with bad smell and dirty walls. The kitchen was over flooding with food and the fridge was dirty and had bad smell. Price was ok but you get poor standard.

The CityStay is ideally located if you are looking for a budget choice close to the Excel Centre or City of London. It's next to Bow Church DLR and 2 minutes walk from Bow Road station on the District line. the London hire bikes haven't yet quite reached Bow Road, though the Devons Road docking station is within reach.

I found it adequate for my needs. I was only there one night and the shower was good and the bed comfortable. It is well located to both metro/Dlr stations of Bow road and Bow church. Easy to switch one stop up the line at Mile end Even a longer stay I would be happy with it being on a... More
