One night stay
If you need to stay around the Bishopsgate area for a night and are looking for value for money this is a good option.
Friendly and efficient check-in, everything was clean and tidy. Small rooms but that's a given. I paid £75 including the comfort package (towels, toiletries, TV and WiFi) and compared to the £120 that Travelodge was asking it was a bargain. Friends said that phone reception in the lower ground floor rooms was a bit patchy.
Great for one
The only negative was the fact that the room was very small.
If you are a single person traveling on business, it would be fine. The shower was great, towels were excellent. The bed was very comfortable, and the linen high grade. The location is as good as it gets. The hotel across the street charges £1,000 per night for a suite. The only reason it did not score more highly was the room size.
Whilst clean & central, it was bland & service was none existent and staff very rude!
Room ok, but warning to business travellers
Very small rooms with no desk or chair.
I've read other reviews, so before the management try to defend themselves...the rooms are adequate, clean and cheap, beds are OK, good firm mattress - fact.
However, the "desk" is a drop down plinth at the end of the bed which just houses a sheet of A4 paper. No chairs, no tea or coffee making facilities, no trouser press, no wardrobe, just hangers in front of the mirror and everything is extra (TV, internet, hair dryer etc etc...thankfully those are included in the laterooms price!).
Internet is painfully slow. I asked for a room with a desk and was told all rooms are the same - so this isn't an isolated case!
Rude staff and tiny rooms,
I arrived at 2030 after a long day at work to check in when the receptionist immediately I.d.me and as I didnt have a driving licence on me got very difficult.
Once I showed her my booking email from laterooms she proceeded tor moan to her colleague about laterooms and that they shouldn't book rooms with them. All I wanted to do was get into my room and out for dinner rather than be subject to moan that didn't concern me. Made me feel very unwelcome. A smile would have been nice. when I finally got the key, the room was so small you couldn't wheel a suitcase around the bed.
Clean and comfortable
Not a big room, but for our purpose was just fine ie as a base.
The location is excellent, we walked everywhere, Brick Lane, Spitalfields and Petticoat Lane Markets ( Don't bother going to Petticoat lane Market, one match and the whole place would go up in a ball of 100% nylon flames)
We went out to eat for breakfast and evening meal, all within walking distance. Highly recommend the Blues Bar down the road in Shoredich, didn't eat there but evening was rocking, even for old people like us.
It was clean and comfortable, a good strong shower and a tv. The coffee from reception was very good and I am a coffee snob. Would really have liked to have things to make it in the room, but probably wouldn't have been so tasty.
Reception staff were all lovely and helpful,also used the looking after your bags service, well worth it, as it meant we had an extra morning of mooching around.
Good value for money for a one night stay
This was an excellent stopover for a one night stay.
Good places nearby for dinner and breakfast. Would have been nice to have tea/coffee facilities in the room but not the end of the world.
Great place if you're ok with a small room
Lovely quaint room.
Not ideal if you need to work in the evening (the only surface is a tiny fold down table that comes over the bed) but luckily I didn't.
It would be a bit of a squeeze if there was more than one of you staying in the room, but again, I was a lone traveler. Very clean, nice bathroom, gorgeous smelling products.
Modern hotel, value for money, perfect location.
I felt safe as well which was key as I was traveling alone. Defo recommend.
Incredibly small room
The picture on the website doesn't reflect AT ALL the real size of the room.
There was barely space for a standing luggage between the bed and the wall, and the bed-light was on one side only, as there was no space to place it on both. Good for a one night only stay, but I wouldn't recommend it for any longer.
