We stayed here for an early valentine's and were very happy with the hotel itself. Didn't eat here and although a free breakfast was included which is great, it was really too early to go to as we were there to relax and sleep in, would have been nice to be served til 11 at least. Only complaint was that...

Clean comfortable room, very friendly and accommodating staff, nothing was too much trouble. Great location too and very reasonable rate for the area. Free breakfast but alas we missed it (too much of a good night) ! Would definitely recommend and stay again.

Review score takes,into account this is budget accomodation in Stratford London (there is full service Holiday Inn in Wesrfield shopping centre-just minutes away). This "Express" accomodation is less "busy"-but nicer than expected. Reception very helpful. Room overlooked grassed area at back- clean & warm with good shower (separate handset)(although loo roll quality could do with upgrade!-seriously). Buffet breakfast quite comprehensive...

Good marks to the staff at this hotel for allowing us to check in very early when the moronic security firm at the National Gallery refused to let us check in our cabin-sized case. Evening meal and breakfast surprisingly acceptable - much better than the travelodge-standard offering I had expected. Not far to walk from Stratford station, which is very...

I stayed here for a weekend so I could take my son around London. I noticed at the booking process that there was parking available for an extra fee. The hotel is located just shy of 10 minutes ( and felt like a lot less; even with an 8 year old in tow! ) from Stratford Station, pretty much a...

Had an event at the Olympic Aquatic Centre to attend and the hotel was ideally situated for that being a short 10 minute walk. Also same distance to Arcelor Mittal Orbital Tower.

Hotel is clean and receptionists were always very helpful. Room was spacious but internet was weak at times. Bfast was typical of this chain of hotels. Within 10 mins walk from Stratford underground & international train stations. Overall a good business hotel even though price is on high side.
