RFSK is a unique place to stay, in but protected from the hustle and bustle of London.
It is known to be an oasis of calm. The welcome is sincere, the rooms are inviting, comfortable and a place to relax. The complex is within minutes from Limehouse Station or the No15 bus stop. Access to central London is so easy and the bus is a sight seeing experience in it's own right.My best stay in London in years.
Wonderful place to stay
Only heads up I would give is if arriving using underground and DLR, then quite a lot of stairs involved so if big or very heavy bags plan for a taxi at least to get you to DLR - place is magical oasis though with yurt cafe and it's all so well thought out - utterly wonderful
The Royal Foundation Of St Katharine
It was a very convenient location, rooms were basic but clean and well presented, the street outside was noisy until after 3am.
Fantastic yurt cafe bar located beside the hotel.
Great place to stay in East London, a refreshing change from the ususal standard hotels
Peaceful haven in East London
St Katharine's was a wonderful oasis of quiet and a tranquil place for our two night stay.
Unusual but good
Set in a quiet haven close Limehouse DLR station this place is more than a hostel but a little less than a hotel.
The rooms are basic but very clean. There is good wifi but no TVs so take a good book. Breakfasts are healthy and beautifully set out. This is a quiet place intended for peace and reflection so don't expect technical distractions.
Very welcoming after a long drive & surprisingly peaceful for London!
A unique place to stay in East London
If you are looking for something different and want to get away from a "corporate feel" hotel, then this place is just great.
Very close to the DLR (so great access to The City, Canary Wharf, Excel, City Airport etc), it really is an oasis of tranquility in a very busy area. My room was a single, very clean and comfortable, but the real bonus is the ability to sit in the garden, use the lounge etc. The continental breakfast was very good and wifi connection is excellent. If you want a substantial meal in the evening, then you will need to go out as there are only snacks available from the bar, but RFSK is very close to lots of places to eat etc.
Service, cleanliness, convenience - perfect.
Rooms very tiny, shower cubicles not in all rooms. Noisy at night when trying to sleep.
Close to DLR
I chose this overnight accom for location re my transit needs and because of good reviews re quiet oasis.
Hotel is different from the norm as it is a retreat place. No TV but good Wifi service to rooms, which were clean and comfy. Obviously they have high standards they pride themselves on. Interesting place. Breakfast was good and well presented. Gardens great. The only "but" is if you are not used to city street noise then ask for a garden room. Traffic was heavy on the road it faces and they have tried with a form of double glazing to dull the sound. So if you are sensitive to traffic noise precook for a garden setting.
