Rated 2.7 out of 5 :
Liked: Forvthe money a bed literally & bare min breakfast (meant I didn't have to travel back home and could stay in the location)
Disliked: Room was so small, just enough room to put my mini suitcase on the floor. Felt claustrophobic. Noisy in the first room could not sleep asked to be moved and was eventually to room with no window. so quiet but right next to door on stair case so was banging every time some cane or went from room. Hard to both relax or study.

This was a very bad room. It was sold as a double, but it was barely big enough for a single occupant. The double bed was against one wall and there was beside cabinet to put phones or other things. The head end of the.

Rated 2.5 out of 5 :
Liked: it had a roof Room was full of flies, we sprayed half a can of raid and there were just more and more coming in from somewhere, the hall was full of flies. Moved rooms to a cleaner 1 but had to share a bed. Didn't stay for breakfast, couldn't be sure the kitchen was not full of flies too. Also there was some sort of other business going on so had to step over sealed clothing. No toilet on every floor, infact shower room was 2 floors above. Yes budget but we have stayed in places a similar distance from Kings Cross in a similar price range that were just far more professional and clean. Not good at all.

Rated 3.6 out of 5 :
Liked: The location to the Docklands Light Railway was perfect as we spent the next day in Canary Wharf. The staff were really friendly and it is located on a high street meaning we were able to get late night snacks from an open late off license as well as a coffee from Costa the next day! The room was a bit stained although the bedding was clean the same couldn't be said for the floor and curtains. Also the shower was impractical as it got the toilet soaking wet after use. The cooked breakfast the next day was minimal and not very veggie friendly (but I managed with toast! ). For a one night stay at such a low price it was ok.

29/11/2017
Liked: Good price for zone 2 location. Very regular buses from Mile End station. During 3 day stay we were out until midnight and never had to walk further than St Barnabas church or wait more than a few minutes for 339 or D6 bus. Room was warm. Bed was comfortable. Breakfast is ok, if a little slow, but considering price who can complain? High street location with many places to buy food etc very close.
Disliked: Very basic furnishings and décor. Lino flooring, small rail with coat hangers for storage. About 12 noisy, drunken retards in adjacent room woke us up at 4am and didn't pass out until about 6. Shower head broken so delivers a stream rather than a spray, but still usable. Full size domestic fridge in room giving off more heat than radiator and making noises like doctor Who's Tardis taking off-Unplugged it.

Liked: Bed was comfortable Room could accommodate disabled person, with wide doorways and a washroom. It was well heated. The market is literally just outside the door.
Disliked: the website pictures are a little out dated. The room could do with a professional paint, rusty radiators. My ground floor room meant we could hear all conversations taking place in reception, which is 24 hours!

Rated 3.2 out of 5 :
Liked: The bed was comfortable. It was clean enough.
Disliked: Despite stating on the site that reception is 24hrs, we were told upon arrival that we had a curfew of 2am. Night ruined. The toilet was saturated in bleach, and some of my good clothes got ruined. The staff were ok, but not the friendliest. The guy sat on his bed with the door open instead of at the reception desk. The name of the hotel is also very ironic. City view my foot.

Liked: I like the value for money as to find a hotel for two nights in London for less than £80 is tough
Disliked: The room was very very very small, the window backed onto a storage room that was inside the hotel so no fresh air was coming in. The breakfast was very basic and not much variety

14/05/2017
Rated 2.9 out of 5 :
Liked: The breakfast was very intimate: the lady made it specifically for each of the visitors, whenever they came to the breakfast area. For me it was a bit too much (two eggs, sausage, beans, three toasts, orange juice and tea), but the lady was so nice I felt obliged to eat most of it.
Disliked: It turned out to be very hard to find the hotel as there are two hotels of the same name on the same street. Unfortunately they are about 400 house numbers away from each other, so it took me almost 30 minutes to get from the Mile End coach drop-off from the wrong to the right one. The hotel was ok, however the room was a bit too small for my liking. I don't need more than a bed and a bathroom, but the whole bathroom was about 1 square meter large and included a shower, a toilet and a sink, which meant the water from the shower was all over the toilet after one was finished showering. so if you like bigger spaces, this is not a good choice for you. But if you are there just to sleep and shower for a night or two, you can get by. The only thing I really missed was a full-length mirror.

Liked: Nice welcome from staff. Very clean. Comfortable and warm. Good breakfast. Quiet, especially during night! Room rather small, just about room to swing a kitten! == but ok. En-suite; but Shower small but good.== lots of hot water. But since we didn't propose to spend much time in the room, rather be out and seeing things, room size not that important. Didn't try local restaurants. Good bus service, We'd go back. Cheap. Very good value for money.
