Nice hotel - not so nice surroundings
Posted Oct 16, 2016
We were happy with the hotel and staff. They were very helpful and friendly. Only concern was surrounding area as it did not feel welcoming as a female traveller. If you are looking for halal restaurants they are easy to find especially around White Chapel station. Day time walking was ok, but coming back late used taxi. Bus 15 is next to hotel and takes you to Trafalgar Square, although it is a scenic route and when rush hour, takes easily an hour. For faster travel, walk across, through street market to Shadwell DLR station and change to underground in Bank. All in all good stay, minus the area around it.
