I stayed for a week while in London for business. The rooms are very clean and modern, though the lighting is more sexy than functional. The hotel is super close to the Tube and there are a lot of great restaurants in the area for dinner. I have to commend Sojad Achach, who checked me in and assisted me during...

Stayed here for one night on business. Great location. Very clean throughout. Breakfast was basic but nice. Very average, nothing that made me go WOW. The only real problem was the loud (what sounded like) a water heating/boiler system? Kept waking me through the night so didn't get a good nights sleep. The bed was extremely comfortable though

Check in was fast and the room served. The rooms were adequately furnished although the toilet shower cubicle did not block the water after you showered and the floor would get very wet. Fittings were all working and was a pleasant stay. The breakfast was generous and a hot meal in cold London before the day ( Tube strikes and...

I stayed here recently with my Mum and we were thrilled with our twin room.

Staying in Shoreditch

Neighbourhood Profile
Shoreditch
The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well connected transportation links dotting its perimeter, along with an ever increasing variety of shops, hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighbourhood. There's a lingering post-industrial grit about Shoreditch, but because it shares a border with “The City” financial district, the influence from its upscale neighbour can result in fascinating outcomes.
