I use to travel a lot during the year, but this was one of the worst place where I've ever stayed. A bed attached to three walls, a little bunker-like blocked window, dirt everywhere, nor enogh furniture neither the essentials. No words....

We slept there 2 nights. Ok the staff is friendly And the make-your-own breakfast is good. But we had bedbugs!! They didnt clean the bed so the second night we had even more bites...! The shower was dirty. There was a lot of noise from the boiler at night. The owner said that they were trying to fix it but...

+ The hotel is well located near Bow church Tube, DLR and bus stations (buses work 24 hours). Its about 20-25 minutes to the center of London. + Though breakfast was not included into the cost of our stay, tea/coffee, toasts, eggs, bananas and cookies were always available in the kitchen. + nice staff + supermarket next door - tiny...

To be fair, I would rate this as better than poor, but lower than average, as there are still improvements to be made. From the outside, the building looked derelict and if you knew it was the hotel you would be very concerned and think it had perhaps shut down or think twice about walking through the door. We walked...

On arriving, we were slightly unnerved by the abandoned looking exterior; we walked past it a couple of times before seeing the paper sign in the window. However, the inside was a completely different matter. Our room was clean and comfortable, and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The shared kitchen was very clean and modern, and breakfast was...

We stayed for 2 nights and found it to be comfortable enough. Room was small and bathroom tiny but shower pressure was great and water was hot! Free wifi but it was a little hit and miss, breakfast provided in a make your own style communal kitchen, very basic but plenty to go around. No lifts just stairs. We found...

The Kings Arms from the street appears to be bankrupt. There is no sign, rubbish piled outside the building, blanked out windows, the presentation is anything but inviting. After entering however things do improve. The rooms are modest in size, as are most in London, but they are comfortable and clean. We were 5 colleagues attending an exhibition and the...
