      Beds are clean. Location is perfect. Nothing else more:(

      Building and equipments are so old. Nothing renewed.

      Difficult to find many positives other than convieniently located for my purpose and very cheap !

      Although the staff were reasonably polite there was no impression of any management going on and everything was very clearly to an extremely low budget which , to be fair , is the case . Very noisy in the room due to the railway line directly behind the hotel . I don't imagine the front to be any better as it's on a main road with a late night supermarket and kebab shop underneath !

      Very poor standards of cleaninless! Shower facilites were un useable with the dirt, no 4 walls were the same colour, single room was like a closet with no window and They used sheets over the head boards to cover up the dirt and smell of vomit, sheets and beds were unsleepable. Breakfast was powdered egg and a 3 day old sausage. Disgusted and enviromental health should really inspect this hotel

      The fact that I came up the steps from the tube station and the hotel was well lit and straight in front of me

      The reception area where breakfast was served looked fine and I dare say the rooms in the main building will probably be fine but to then be taken out of the hotel and to a house a couple of doors up the street and lead to the basement where 3 rooms had been squeezed in and the headroom was very low didn't give the right impression, it all felt like a hostel rather than a hotel and the breakfast, plain at best. Overall its cheap and you get what you pay for but I won't be going back.

      The hotel was not at alll how the website described. It was dirty, small and unkempt in a very bad part of London.

      Rooms were clean and staff were friendly. The guy on reception was helpful

      The tv worked through the Sky box but I could only get 3 channels. There was a kettle but no cups

      Location next to Bethnal Green tube. Two stops from Stafford Park Olympic Stadium. Clean sheets and clean towel.

      The hotel is located next door to a Church so gospel singing can be heard quite clearly when sat in the lounge. I thought I was stay in the hotel but was accommodated next door in a building that looks worse for wear. Unwanted objects I.E. doors, chairs, rubbish etc have been left in the front of the building. My room was in the basement. There was a fridge, colour television, heater, fan, bin. The window looked onto a small courtyard that was 80% filled with black rubbish bags hence rats and cockroaches able to enter the building. A plastic black was wedged into a hole in the skirting board to prevent unwanted creatures entering the room. The light bulb was on the wall above the bed with no shade on it. The lock on the door handle was difficult to operate and evidence of previous forced entry from the outside of the room was obvious. Being in the basement you can quite clearly hear the underground tube so be prepared. I opted out of breakfast as previous comments had put me off. The shared bathroom was dirty and in serious need of renovation. Hair, scum marks, mold etc are all evident in the bathroom. I left feeling dirty and in need of a proper shower. I paid a lot for the room as it was the Olympic weekend so feel conned for what I got. I never leave comments normally but I feel people need to be warned what to expect.

      Staff unhelpful, made you feel uncomfortable. Turned up at 13.50, said check in was not until 2pm, would not let me check in even though it was 10 monutes to go. Then would not let me into room until 4pm, said it was being cleaned. Very annoying as I had an exam the next day & wnated to study for it. Was made to feel very uncomfortable in the foyer, the family who owned the hotel stared at me as if I should not be there, they were watching the tv & eating their dinners. There was meant to be breakfast included, I would not have stayed for it but anyway, it was not offered. Room dirty, noisy.

      The hotel was the biggest disappointment for us and I would rather sleep on a bench at Bethnal Green Tube station which it lay across (only +ve is the location opposite the bus stop and tube but not a +ve when the room faces the road like ours did and we hardly slept.

      The hotel was the biggest disappointment for us and I would rather sleep on a bench at Bethnal Green Tube station which it lay across (only +ve is the location opposite the bus stop and tube but not a +ve when the room faces the road like ours did and we hardly slept. The rooms were very dirty, there were no facilities of clean water (not even any glasses for us to use the bathroom sink). My partner had to go to the reception to get glasses from the water cooler which also was not working. Surprisingly there was a kettle but no facilities such as any mugs or tea/coffee. The bathroom was rusty and very dirty including the toilet being stained. The shower was very small. The pillows were like bricks which were about 45-50 cm high and not worth using unless you wanted to end up with a sprained neck. We left without breakfast even though it was included as it was all so dirty and no consolation would make me eat there. There were mouse traps in the room which did not help the fact that we didn't like the room as soon as we walked in. The staff was very unfriendly and did not bother asking if we had a comfortable night. It was the biggest disappointment (even worse than the rainy weather we had all weekend) and I would not recommend it to anyone. Big no no no no!

      Good location for East London night out

      Was charged £5 to use cc on checking in, no mention of this on website, cash point two doors down, but still poor show. Room smelt musty, big stains on ceiling. Took shoes off to find floor damp, could be from leak that caused stain. No plug in sink. Very basic, worth £50 for two of you if on very limited budget. Not for me.

      Very reasonable price, great location.

      Had to wait a while to get into my room, even though the webpage said I could access my room any time after 3pm. It hadn't been cleaned until perhaps 20 past 3.

      Looks like there r bed bugs there :-( horrible & awful hotel.

      Very little noise from outside got into the room, very convenient for the tube.

      The credit card fee of 5% is not explicitly mentioned on their page and could be made clearer.
