Positive Reviews

Really convenient location.

The hotel is situated on the busy Bow Road, with a number of ways to travel to and from the centre of London. Guests comment on the ease of transport, with a choice of bus, DLR or tube. The bus runs all night, and is reportedly a good service.

Very kind and helpful staff.

A number of reviews praise the hotel staff for being friendly and helpful. One guest commented on staff helping with their luggage in the absence of a lift. Another guest stated that staff did all they could to upgrade their visitor to a larger room. Staf

Plenty of food available in the kitchen.

A number of guests comment on the amount of food available in the communal kitchen, particularly for breakfast. Reports seem to suggest that eggs, bread, fruit and cereal are readily available in addition to tea, coffee and juice.

Negative Reviews

Very small bedrooms.

Many guests comment on the size of the rooms, stating that they are small and seem to be packed in. Rooms do offer an en-suite, and reviews mention a small wardrobe in each of the bedrooms.

Noisy street keeps you awake.

A number of reviews point out the busy road outside the hotel, which seems to keep guests awake as the road stays busy through the night. Guests with rooms at the front of the hotel comment on this issue in particular.

No sign on the building.

A few reviews note that the hotel building is not signed in any way, making it easy to miss when walking by. A number of reviews comment on the outside appearance of the building, some describing it as "dingy" and "shabby".
