Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AlPea A feeling of transience
Staff were very friendly and helpful but found it intimidating that guests were loitering in groups outside of my room. There wasn't a problem but I did not feel comfortable having to push through the groups to get to my door or out again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Goldy81 Great location but noisy
The location of the hotel is great, the standard of the room was good but we didn't enjoy our stay because you just can't sleep through the noise, the windows are double glazed but it seemed their was no seal around our window and when there is noise outside it just felt like you were sleeping with the window open. The air conditioning unit didn't work in our room either and was making a regular noise all night, they did supply ear plugs but if you can't sleep with ear plugs then it's no good. We would not recommend staying here because the whole point in a room is to sleep. We didn't approach the reception staff about this the next morning due to a large que of people complaining about similar problems and they didn't seem very helpful in regards to the situation.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by matt675777 overall good stay
However awful mattress on the bed. The first night and following day ended up in back pains. We decided to turn over the matress and then it was a bit better. I was on a week end with my wife and nieces so we were not especially expecting high level services but these matresses need to be changed on a more frequent basis. I would have complained about it or asked for aroom change if i would have been on business trip on my own.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by getanotherhotel Staff nice Hotel Dreadful!!
I was put in a disabled room, with limited space in the shower. There was ear plugs in the room, and it was necessary to use them. The internet did not work and I had to revert to 4G but the reception was bad. It was a last minute business trip and this was the only hotel on the area. This Hotel made my stay in London very depressing. I would avoid it if you can, but getting last minute rooms on London, means Ill probably have to suffer it again sometime!

We took advantage of a cheap deal and booked a nice room with a lovely bay window.

Stayed for two nights while doing some research in the area. Convenient location and very comfortable. The free Internet available throughout the hotel specified in the check-in letter didn't appear in my list of available wifi connections but I was able to use a BTWiFi one, so it didn't prevent me from keeping in touch at home.
Room and bathroom were very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was limited choice but at least hot food was available as well as the usual continental options.
Overall, very good value and I would be very happy to stay there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by murtonvic Very Good Hotel, Location and Staff
Stayed here for 1 night prior to heading to Brussels overnight. Check in was quick and easy although our booked room wasn't ready when we checked-in (which was 3pm) we were given a choice of leaving our bags or accepting a room described as being "a bit noisier on the 1st Floor." We chose the latter and in hindsight it wasn't probably the best option but it was our decision so no complaints. The aircom in the room was the reason for the noise but we simply turned this off when we were in the room.
As soon as I was about to unpack I realised that I'd left my key at home so headed to Reception to see if they could help - after a few security questions about the contents of the case the concierge set about hacksawing the lock off for me and I was soon able to access my belongings.
I found the mattress on the bed a bit too soft and didn't have the best night's sleep but breakfast in the morning more than made up for that. We hit breakfast "rush hour" so accessing a table was impossible but we still managed to grab platefuls of food, fruir juice and hot coffee - the amount and quality of the food and drink was excellent and the staff worked tirelessly to keep as many surfaces clear and clean.
Check out was easy enough despite a big party checking out ahead of us so all in all a very good choice of hotel.
The hotel is very easy to reach by public transport and is well located for Shoreditch and Islington.
