Selected hotel location to attend a social event in central London - but did not want to pay central London prices and wanted to be close to shops.
Stratford has excellent transport links to most
of London and the station is 5 minutes easy walk from hotel entrance (bus station also alongside). I mainly just needed room and breakfast, so this was an ideal choice. Room was in excellent condition, spacious and with small kitchen including kettle, coffee maker, fridge and microwave. I particularly liked the spacious shower (some showers in UK can be very tiny).
The only problem I encountered was with the swipe card key not working in the lift. On one occasion this was about 2am but the staff quickly and cheerfully sorted it out and accompanied me to the room to ensure everything worked.
The Westfield shopping centre where the hotel is situated has a large selection of shops. So if you are happy with a 20 minute tube ride to central London, this could be a cost-effective choice for visiting the capital (also close to tourist attractions like Greenwich and Tower of London) [Less]
