I have said this time & time again, if you're looking to take pics in a hotel & flick it up for the gram, this is not the hotel for all of that. If you're looking for a hotel that's clean, room service every morning or on call when you need them, friendly service and MOST IMPORTANTLY conveniently located to... More

Trying hard to think of a positive about this hotel, the staff were pleasant and helpful. Other than that all downhill, not easy to find way on tube with all the changes, we eventually took the underground to Mile End and got a bus along to hotel. We were charged £160 for a twin room per night including breakfast (... More

This was our second stay at this hotel. Can walk to this hotel from the train station. Took us about ten minutes. Ideal for the shopping centre as well.

Only really worth bothering if you need to stay near Olympic Park or the Shopping Centre. Rooms are fine - reception staff a little distracted, and breakfast staff very officious, if you arrive after 9.29 - don't expect to get any breakfast. Oh, and they charge £20 for parking per night in the on-site garage.
