    Very good

    The room is clean and the location of the hotel is good. It is very near the tube station.

    The Wi-Fi is horrible. There is no reception in the room. The Wi-Fi can only be launched in the lobby.

    As they don't have single room for single bed, so they gave me a room of 4 single beds. really a large room for one person!!! the staff is quite nice and location is convenient of taking underground.

    We chose this hotel because it was one of the few that had accommodations for a family of 4 to stay in the same room (we were looking for one full bed & 2 twin beds.) This was a much less expensive solution than having to book 2 separate rooms. Although quite minimalist in decor, the room was very clean & sizeable, the bathroom looked new, and all our needs were met.

    The view from our window was of a slum-like lot across the street. Although beyond that the view of the financial district buildings (including the "giant gerkin") was nice.

    Superb

    My stay at the City Hotel was suprisingly good. I booked a room with only few days in advance, and was not expecting such good quality hotel. I received a big room with a double and a single bed, though I had booked a single room. All facilities in the hotel (including the room) were clean. Bathroom was too big and sparkling clean. Employees were very gentle and helpful. Excellent service. Hotel is localized nearby the Aldgate East metro station, and at walking distance of the London Tower and liverpool street. Although one may be suspicious of the location of the Hotel, since the hotel lays on the edge of a moslim neighborhood, I had absolutely no problem while I walked alone during the evening around the vicinities of the Hotel. I crossed many turkish, indian, moslim stores of all sorts: small supermarkets, turkish fastfood, delicatessen, small stores with all types of products, internetcafes, mosques. Streets were full of people (mainly men) and all stores and restaurants were open. I had to laugh when I walked by a christian kindergarden school in the middle of all types of moslims stores. Alhtough I am woman and I was alone, I was not approached or bothered by anybody at any time. On the contrary: In the few stores I walked in, I was always very well attended and with extreem courtesy. Predjudment causes more damage than single isolated acts of violence. I have absolutely no complain and I surely recomend the City hotel for other travelers.

    Minus point: No free-of-charge wifi. Moreover, if you pay for one hour, and only use 30 minutes, you lose the other 30. You cannot "reuse" the time you did not spend.

    I needed to stay overnight in London to catch an early train to Saxmundham. The city Hotels location and price suited me very well.As a woman travelling on her own it felt a very safe Hotel.

    Attentive staff, good facilities, clean and good location.

    Saturday night stays where rooms are overlooking the road can be quite noisy due to clubbers directly outside.
