From the moment we were first greeted by lovely Melissa the staff were so friendly. The hotel was so clean and modern with super quiet air conditioning and triple glazing that kept out all the street noise. The breakfasts and charming crew were very nicely cooked and the hotel was superbly located for our family week holiday sight seeing. I had entered a request for adjoining rooms into Expedia and this was ready for us. We'll stay here again, loads of great cheap takeaway food close by too. Thank you!

Can’t speak highly enough of this hotel 10/10
Arrived early evening on a Sunday during the pandemic and was greeted by hotel reception which were very friendly and taking safety precautions. The room was beyond my expectations. Very large bathroom and walk in shower, a spacious bedroom with working desk, large tv, coffee/tea facilities, safe, iron/board, closet for clothes. 2 sided floor to ceiling windows giving a 180 degree view of the sky, building tops from the 3rd floor. Breakfast was delivered to your room for the obvious reasons and arrived spot on 07:30 which I asked for. A large egg/bacon bap, yogurt and orange juice. Very close to Whitechapel tube station I will definitely be staying at this hotel in the future if I’m in the area. I’ve paid a lot more for London hotels in the past and got no where near the service, comfort that this hotel provides
