    We have stayed at the hotel before, it is useful for the Excel centre.

    The building works. I would also like the bar to open later for residents.

    it was for an overnight stay near to a venue i wsa attending a meeting

  • Single

    Excellent location next to Brick Lane and Aldgate East tube station. Very helpful and friendly staff. Big, comfy rooms with a fridge, kettle and nice bathroom. The hotel is all very clean and well appointed. Also has its own Indian/Bangladeshi restaurant and a bar that stays open till 3am on Saturdays. Top hotel.Bit pricey but very good.

  • Couple
    7.4

    good location,happy hour on drinks,good price on food buffet on staurday night.

  • Group of friends
    6.6

    I liked the convinient location and the option of 3 persons rooms. The relatively low rate was also a very strong point.

    Rooms are quite old which causes bad smell in the room.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    Easy to find and to get to buses and tube and train. Clean room.

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    There was nowhere to put clothes, no chest of draws, only 1 chair in the room.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    Newly refurbished and bright rooms

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    Staff were really nice and helpful, especially the trainee on the desk. Room was huge. We had a top floor room with loads of space. Very good price. Lovely bar staff. Coffe shops and food places in the area are cheap. Delicious coctails are half price before 7 in the adjoining bar.

    15 mins by tram and then a short walk to get to leicester square where we were seeing a show, so a little bit far. £15 to get a taxi back. TV had bad reception.

  • Group of friends
    6.2

    Nice hotel for the price, easy to fine, good for the City.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    It's close to the underground. You reach central London within just a few minutes.

    Our room (113) was hot. Impossible to open a window and even if we had the fan running the whole night, the temperature didn't go down.

  • Couple
    7.4

    We liked hospitality of the hotel staff and the location of the hotel.

  • Single
    7.4

    It is very close to the Aldgate underground station, room was refurbished a few months ago, and a very good Indian restaurant at the corner

    very thin walls, and the neighbours were very noisy. The refurbishment is currently under execution, so workers are there from 8 a.m. till 5 p.m.

  • Older travelers
    5.4

    Restaurant staff were friendly, despite getting my main course wrong (along with a few other people's as well).

    Reception staff were unfriendly. We arrived early and were allowed to leave our bags, which were snatched away by a porter with little more than a grunt. When we later returned, the receptionist could find no trace of our booking. I explained that the previous receptionist had already confirmed our booking but this was ignored. I repeated my name and spelt it but she could not find it. My reservation details were in my bag, which had to be fetched by the porter, before the receptionist could verify that we actually DID have a reservation. She commented that the reason for the confusion was that she could not understand me! (Despite the fact that I spelt out my name twice).The room was stuffy and warm and very noisy (located above the bar)

  • Couple
    5.8

    Great hotel if you just want somewhere to come back to and stay over night. 10 minute walk from Tower of London. Pubs and shops near by.

    Hotel room was a little shabby. The area / streets surrounding the Hotel did not feel safe after 7PM and not somewhere to be wondering when dark.
