The next day we again had a fantastic front desk staff clerk who assisted us when my mother was under the weather . The evening staff again were fantastic guiding us with transportation information and anything else we needed. Breakfast was great .... More

Comfortable and, for London standards, budget-friendly hotel. Good location close to the main attractions in the area, with plenty of restaurants and bars in the immediate area. A quick 10 minute walk from old street station, so easy to get to other parts of the city if one desires to do so. Rooms are well appointed, and of a good... More

Stayed one night here and the staff were really helpful and friendly. For an "express" hotel very good all round. I used the meeting rooms for an event I was hosting and again the staff were really helpful. The bed rooms were clean and had all you would need, the only issue I had was that the pillows were uncomfortable,... More

I booked a room here about 2 hours before checking in. Was really clean and tidy. Staff very polite. Breakfast was nice too. Only thing I was shocked at was the price for 1 pint and 1 lemonade £17!!!! I got the room at a really good price. The bed was ridiculously comfortable.

Nice, light efficient hotel that has no frills, but delivers a comfortable stay, good breakfast and convenient location close to the City and within reach of the West End. Comfy beds, air-conditioning and reasonably sized rooms.

Fantastic location - 3 minute walk to the subway. Get a travel card and you are all set for the day. Room: clean and renovated. The bathrooms were very nice, too. Noise level: We spent the first night in a room on the ground level. It was noisy. The next day we moved to a room on the second floor.... More

Staying in Shoreditch

Neighborhood Profile
Shoreditch
The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well connected transportation links dotting its perimeter, along with an ever increasing variety of shops, hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighborhood. There's a lingering post-industrial grit about Shoreditch, but because it shares a border with “The City” financial district, the influence from its upscale neighbor can result in fascinating outcomes.
