We stayed at this hotel from 10/12-10/20 (8 nights). I booked and prepayed the stay looking for value, and liking the tripadvisor reviews. The room was clean and larger than many other London hotels. Housekeeping did not come on many days. I believe they came about 4/8 days, and not the last two. The towels dried quickly enough, but there were not extras. The bed was made when housekeeping came, but sheets not changed in the 8 days. To me, the overall housekeeping was substandard.
I thought the breakfast was fine; my wife did not like the quality of the food; her feeling was the same as another recent reviewer. However, there was yogurt, a variety of juices and milk, eggs (even I agree they weren't great), some form of meat, a variety of cereals and rolls. I avoided the hot foods. However, unless you are somewhat demanding, I thought that the breakfast was not bad.
The staff was quite friendly, but not really a concierge service. They were not generally very familiar with restaurants in the area, but they certainly tried to be helpful. We felt very safe.
I paid about 1200 pound/$1800 for advance payment for the 8 nights in Stratford. I thought it was a fair value, but quite a good value if the housekeeping had been better. I did not think Stratford was that far out of downtown London. About 25 mins/8-12 subway stops, which was fine to me. The shopping area was huge, but coming from the US, we weren't actually doing a lot of shopping.
Overall, this was a fine stay. We would probably stay there again. Even for the value, I could not call this one of the top hotels/deals in London.
