Neighbourhood
Shoreditch
The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well connected transportation links dotting its perimeter, along with an ever increasing variety of shops, hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighbourhood. There's a lingering post-industrial grit about Shoreditch, but because it shares a border with “The City” financial district, the influence from its upscale neighbour can result in fascinating outcomes.

I was there during my visit in London in 2019 and it was excellent! Reception, breakfast (fits various cultures) and then there was everything excellent about the rooms. More than value for your money.

Stayed in this hotel before and will definitely return. The reception staff were very helpful and took their time to pass the time of day with the whole family. Even though the room is basic it was beautifully clean, especially the bathroom. Great shower too! Breakfast was busy

is the tv HDMI enabled (so that I can plug in my google chrome toggle) ?
The TV's have HDMI ports... but whether they are active or not is a different story ;-) I have found them to be disabled in some hotels... didn't try this one though.
