About the hotel
The Central is a basic, budget hotel, located in the East End of London. Guests at this hotel get to enjoy the benefit of being located above a traditional London pub. This atmospheric Victorian pub is a great place to soak up a real taste of the East End.
You can relax with a drink or enjoy a game of pool or darts. Staying at The Central you will see a completely different side of London life, which contrasts dramatically with that of Kensington and Notting Hill. The Central offers very basic accommodation and is therefore ideal for tourists and students who are travelling on a budget. Rates are considerably cheaper than those of more central hotels and transport links from Upton Park make travelling around East London easy, with train access to Central London. The majority of rooms are singles, but double, triple and twin rooms are also available. The Central is self-catering accommodation, so there is a well-equipped kitchen for saving money on meals. The Central has a typical East London pub on the ground floor, which will give any tourist a true feeling of East London life and the inhabitants that live in this multi-national area. Why not have a pleasant evening in the pub or play the traditional games of darts or pool. You could also watch sports on the big screen. This comfortable hotel combines a peaceful location with a homely atmosphere, as well as easy access to central London. The Central also has a fully-equipped kitchen and shared bathroom facilities. West Ham Football Ground is 2 min away from Hotel.

Great if you enjoy heavy bass lines and rattling Windows!
Firstly I don't normally bother reviewing these places as I use laterooms a lot and frankly my requirements are pretty low.
I'm self employed so cost is often the overriding factor so 'contractor' type accommodation is generally fine as long as I can get my head down I'm not that fussy. I knew this wasn't the type of place I'd want to take a partner for a weekend away, it was a room above a pub close to West Ham Utd and as I was working there the next day and wanted to watch the football on tv that night and have a glass of wine this place seemed ideal, and it was........until I wanted to go to sleep. For most of the evening the pub was dead and the lady who served me was lovely it has to be said but alarm bells should have rang when I saw a massive PA system being sack barrowed in. Sure enough the music started up in an adjoining room but didn't seem that bad from the bar but on going up to my room approx 11.30pm it became apparent that the rooms were directly above the function room holding the club night, the bass was so heavy it shook the windows in the manner of a max power era Nova. Turns out this was on till 2am, the lady behind the bar did try to move me with no questions ask did try and get the bass reduced but to no avail.
Overall it's cheap, grotty but friendly and above a nice enough pub, I guess if you're working in the area Monday-Friday and want to save money it'd be fine but I'd swerve it on a weekend if you've got an early start.
What you can expect for a cheap hotel
The hotel/pub was worn ...
and the room had not seen paint for a long time. But the toilet and the bed sheets were clean, which was a good thing.
All in all what you can expect for a cheap hotel. Not the big surprises, so not so disappointed. The only really bad thing was a squeaky pub sign right outside the window, which kept us awake at night ... REALLY annoying when you are trying to sleep.
