We came to London for the weekend, and stayed at this hotel as it was reasonably well located, had good reviews and the price was good. It is very close to the Tube which made getting around easy. Although not terribly inspiring from outside, inside is great; clean and spacious. Our room (5th floor) was modern and probably recently decorated...

We stayed for one night, after helping a friend celebrate his birthday nearby, and were very pleasantly surprised. The building is faceless and charmless from the outside but the reception was welcoming. Our room was 120, on the first floor but up a very short flight of stairs, down a Euro hostel styled corridor. The room itself was good -...

Well located in Shoreditch just a few minutes walk from Old Street Tube (remember EXIT 2) in a impressively vibrant area. Great bars, clubs, cafes, restaurant all around (Rivington Bar & Grill has the best ever scotch eggs!). Although this is probably classified as a budget hotel chain I found this one to have everything that I needed and none...

I stayed here for 3 nights recently on a business trip. You really can't fault the location, it's only a 3 or 4 minute walk from Old Street tube station, which was perfect for me. When I arrived at the hotel, I did have to ask to change rooms as I was initially allocated a room which had an interconnecting...

Stayed for a night, the room is well presented for a short trip. Very good shower/bathroom. Clean, tidy. Bed could be a bit bigger, and the mattress a bit less "roll together", but these are minor quibbles for excellent location and good vfm

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.
