Well here we are in a haven in the middle of what I think is a very colourful part of London, it was difficult to establish the environs or the identity of the city but the market pathway leading to the hotel from the nearby Shadwell Station was certainly vivid in quality and texture and easily negotiable. This pathway leads eventually to a newish building with a reception which was manned by very capable and polite staff. The room was upgraded to executive, giving it an extra 3 square feet. THe bed was excellent, the environs very quiet but lacked cosiness in the extra space. Bathroom is small but apt. I did not try the restaurant but had one drink in the bar. The drinks are far too expensive as is the breakfast and the white house wine I sampled was foul! However the lobby area is bright and cheerful and the staff make up for the "sadness" of the area.
