Girls Getaway

We stayed here for 5 nights on a girls getaway. The location was good: ATM across the street. Several convenience stores within 5 minute walk. Tube/bus station a 15 minute walk away. Staff was accommodating, nothing spectacular, but courteous. Our flight got in at 6am, and they were able to check us in by 9am. Very helpful booking a taxi at the end of our stay. The complimentary breakfast was plentiful and filling. Room was clean. Cramped quarters, but what I've come to expect from European hotels. Only negatives I have: we booked for two doubles and were given a double and pull out couch. Also, they have the signs to hang your towel if you want to reuse, which we did, but everyday they replaced them. Obviously not a big deal, but why have the signs about going green if you're not following that policy?

Probably a good hotel for the Olympics

If you are like me and are making last minute, low budget reservations and don't mind walking, then this may be a good hotel for you. There isn't much around the hotel in Stratford and if you intend to call a cab, you will need to stand at the door since there is no parking for taxi's. My driver was told he could park half a mile away and walk back to tell me he was there. The hotel offers wifi, but the signal was so weak that after I paid a pound and a half for 30 minutes of access, I had to sit in the lobby for marginal speed. This hotel is clean, well built, and cheap. If you are looking for more, look elsewhere.

Dining tip: Not Applicable

If you intend to eat dinner, do so before you go to the hotel. There were few options and I passed no open restaurants on a few walks to the Tube.

You're on your own

The first night I spent here, there was water standing near the commode, the TV wasn't hooked up to a video source, the mattress had a crater in it that sucked you towards the middle of the bed like vortex, and there was an extra bed on the floor (shades of college days). When I complained they said they could put me in another room, but I would have to leave my luggage in a storage area. At the end of the day they couldn't get my luggage out of the storage area. It was unusually warm, but the air conditioner didn't work. When I reported the failure to the front desk they said they were not able to turn the air on in the fall. But I could have another fan (I guess to stir up more of the hot air). Internet service was unreliable and expensive. The almost $20 nightly fee got you a connection that was so sloooooooow you couldn't tell if it was down or not. A word to the wise. Save the $20 every day and go to some of the local hubs where there are free, reliable, wifi and good pub grub.

"Just OK"

The hotel was clean and reasonably priced. The only reason I wouldn't stay there again is that it wasn't close enough to all the tourist spots and nightlife. The tube station is about a half mile walk from the hotel (not too bad), but if you want to stay out late you'll have to take a high-priced cab ride.
