“Nice hotel not far from center”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2012

Stayed there for 5 days during the business trip.
Good location - by walk: 5min to Limehouse station (DLR and suburban trains) and 30mins to the Tower Bridge. Some supermarkets right behind the corner on Butcher Row.
Nice room: TV with a lot of channels, phone, hair dryer, kettel with two cups plus teabags, coffee, sugar. Choice of firm and soft pillows. Very comfortable bed.
WiFi is not for free (!). Electrical sockets are UK standard.
Bathroom with big mirror, set of towels and plastic cups. Towels were changed not everyday and disregarding the sign in bathroom ("changing towels only when they are on the floor").
Room was clean and very quiet facing small street which is behind the hotel.
A/C system was not convenient - you cannot set temperature, you can only make the air colder or warmer.
Breakfast was the same each day but tasty. Dishes seemed not very clean.
It's possible to order taxi from reception. Fixed price to Gatwick - 75 pounds (about 1 hour drive). You can leave your luggage at the reception (before check-in / after check-out) if you are coming to eary or leaving late.
Can recommend this hotel, especialy for business travellers.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2012

Travelled with my son and found this hotel through Trip Advisor. A great value at less than £90 a night with breakfast included. Proximity to Limehouse DLR station made sight-seeing in London very easy; the walk from the DLR to the hotel appeared unsafe the first night but by the 2nd day we were both fine doing the walk. The staff were very helpful and I appreciated their patience with a first time visitor. The breakfast included was nice to have, and there are restaurants close by that deliver to the hotel - the Chinese and pizza deliveries were great. Even though the hotel welcomes families, there was no entertainment for kids. The hotel was very clean and well kept - not luxurious but functional. Overall, great value for money.

Room Tip: The Highway is very busy so you want a room not facing the major road.

The twin room was a good size and very clean. Tea and coffee provided. Had to check in late after night out which was fine. Breakfast better than expected with some hot food. Overall excellent value for money

under £90 for a friday night in London, cant be beat. Clean, comfortable, spacious and basic. nice quiet room, we were going to an event at the TROXY, which is very close by. The service was good and the staff were friendly. breakfast was odd and a bit chaotic. It is self service but the layout could be better. the hot food options were, scrambled egg, sausage and beans. As well as cereal, toast, pastries, yoghurt etc. The food was fine. Very close to the DLR so 10 minutes and you are at the Tower of London and off into the city. I will definitely return when I am staying east again.

Room Tip: not to overlook the cement factory (not noisy)

Stayed at this hotel as had to attend a trade fair in Excel. Luckily got a Double room as the singles - like any other hotel in London - are pretty poky. The room was very neat and clean, bathroom was clean and functional enough although small. There was a tea/coffee maker luckily but I missed having a closet in the room. The included breakfast is decent - cereal, muffins/croissants, fruits, scrambled eggs, sausages and tea/coffee are available. Staff are polite and efficient for the most part.
I did miss having a restaurant in-house for lunch/dinner but they give you some pizza delivery menus and other options. Didn't use the bar, seemed okay. Within walking distance you will find some Indian and Chinese takeaway joints as well as a couple of chippies.
It's a 5 minute walk away from the Limehouse DLR so you can be in Bank in about 20 minutes; Excel is a 10-minute cab ride away. Don't expect a great location or views or frills, and you'll be fine.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor room; less noise from the busy traffic outside.
