Here are my personal experience and recommendation if you want to find a hotel near East Croydon Railway station. Travelodge Central Croydon is cheap, comfortable and nearest to the rail station and most accessible to nearby restaurants and shopping centre. The nearby hotels I recommend is Hampton by Hilton London Croydon and Jurys Inn Croydon. They are clean and comfortable. Jurys Inn Croydon has a 1-minute short cut to the nearby famous Whitgift centre. Hampton by Hilton London Croydon is a good choice but it is 2 minutes walk from Jurys Inn Croydon. However, the price is only two-third of the Jurys Inn Croydon and the breakfast is marvellous and FREE. However, never consider Lansdowne Hotel, it is dirty and the staff is rather rude. They reception doesn't really realise that she is working in a hotel. She doesn't seem to welcome your queries, say, where is the nearest available carpark or famous restaurants. The bed is only two feet and six inches only. It is barely enough for those who are less than 130 lbs. It is far worse than the Travelodge adjacent which is half its price. However, I don't know why they are charging the same price as Jurys Inn Croydon which is directly opposite the street. They are quite strict and won't let you check-in before the check-in time even there is room available. The swimming pool in the website doesn't belong to the hotel, it belongs to the adjacent fitness club only. The staff there don't seem to welcome the guest from the Lansdowne hotel. I don't know I have to register to get inside since I am a really a stranger and thought it was part of the hotel. The staff stopped me immediately at the entrance and gave very impolite warning to me that I couldn't do this again. It is totally not value for money since there are many good choices around that area.
