Nothing wrong with the presentation of the hotel. It is clean and the rooms are modern.The reception staff are very welcoming. There was a problem with the air conditioning on the 3rd floor which was very noisy. I should have suspected this when I arrived as there were ear plugs in the room. The hotel dealt with my complaint very... More

I chose this hotel initially due to its proximity to City University of London where I was visiting. I found out that it has a direct bus number 55 to Oxford Circus where I could grab some stuff during my short stay in London. It is also 20 minutes walk to Liverpool Street Station where I took the train to... More

High quality large room, large bathroom, fold out sofa bed if needed. Easy walk from Old Street tube station meaning very easy to get around to all the sights of London. Would recommend getting a room on a higher floor or at the back of the hotel, as friends of ours who were staying on a lower level at the... More

Fantastic room - very clean, really good price for the location, walk in shower, bathroom was immaculate, bed was comfortable and aircon worked well. Small sofa in the room was a bonus, less than 5 minute walk to Old Street tube station. Perhaps the blue colour scheme made the room quite dark in the morning, but thats being really really... More

Only two stops from Kings cross on the underground, this place is in an ideal location for those wanting to go sightseeing, Shoreditch itself has some excellent restaurants and bars, the hotel itself is adequate, very clean and helpful staff, excellent value for money, we would definitely recommend this place.

Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry you were not made aware of the car parking charges before you arrived, but these are clearly indicated on our website. Unfortunately space is a premium in city centers which is why we charge for parking. You will find that are prices are very competitive for our area. Thank you again. More

Close to buses and tube to the West End and other areas of London, especially theatres , without the extravagant cost of hotels closer to the attractions. Buses stop outside, tube is a few minutes and Liverpool Street Station about 15 minutes walk.

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.
