Ideally situated in the heart of London's vibrant East End and just a 2 minute walk from Bethnal Green Central Line Tube Station.
"Civility and Class in Bethnal Green"
We LOVE this hotel. It was our second time at the Town Hall and only managed to stay two days in London, but it is a great base to call your own. If you haven't been, the Hotel has a great modern/heritage/funky feel to it that I hope the management team keeps nurturing and developing. I saw this as I noticed a some outdoor art/light pieces that aren't working, the front desk could use some polish and some of the carpet on the ground floor needs to be straightened and relaid. Keep this jem shining! The big ticket winner for us at this hotel is that the suites include a washer/dryer! We were getting to the end of our first week travelling and it was a godsend to be able to do laundry. The kitchens in the suites have everything you need to live independently of restaurants and its so nice to have a "home" cooked meal while away. Given our short stay we decided to go with the hotel breakfast option and were generally not disappointed. The dining room is nice, great table service, but the buffet itself could use a little bit more soul. They were a bit stingy on the smoked salmon and I had to ask for them to refresh the buffet and after coming back from Paris I could tell the croissants weren't to Paris standards, but overall it was a good breakfast and powered us through the day. Looking forward to our next return to Bethnal Green and our little home away from home.
"Poor service by men wearing jeans"
No value for money with bad service. Restaurant options really strange menu. In the morning breakfast was served by men wearing jeans not really what you would expect. Never will visit again. The area seems upcoming but also a bit dodgy.
"Trendy, upscale, yet quite and relaxed away from the crowds, yet close to everything"
I've stayed here a half-a-dozen times or so, and it never disappoints,. The rooms are ultra modern, very clean, and the price point is good, if you aren't paying sold-out prices. Any of the suites comes with everything you need and more to have a home away from home. The staff are pleasant and are attentive to your needs. It's nice to get off the tube, and take a short walk and turn that corner, and start to relax, because you know your "home".
"Hidden Gem "
We stayed at this hotel for 10 days in January 2017 while visiting family in London. It's a beautifully repurposed and modernized building, formerly the Town Hall. Lovely large suite with a kitchen, clothes washer/dryer combo, and very smart looking large bathroom with toilet, sink and a large tub/shower combination. We were very pleasantly surprised, as our experience with European hotel rooms is that they can be quite small, although clean. The staff were very pleasant and appear to have been well trained. The Underground station is a 5 minute walk, and connects easily to lines for Piccadilly (shows) Oxford Street ( shopping) and historic sites. Although it is not in the 'heart' of London, we found that there are a multitude of great pubs, and cafes nearby, and it is very near a Saturday market and a Sunday flower market. Definitely recommend this hotel, especially at the price.
"Generously proportioned design room but build quality and service do not suggest it is a luxury hotel"
I stayed in a one-bedroom apartment which has generous oversized rooms. In addition to the bedroom and the bathroom, there is a well-equipped kitchen (hob, oven, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine), dining area and a lounge. Nice classic design although not high quality - many areas, on closer inspection are falling apart. It feels like all the springs in the bed are gone resulting in a massive void in the middle and pillows are hard - not conducive the a good night's sleep. Many items in the room have price tags all over them. It feels more like a shop rather than a home away from home where you can relax. The most ridiculous thing is that reception cannot tell you whether your late check out can be honoured until 2 hours before check out. Seriously'' Being an SPG gold member makes no difference. The area which the hotel is located is really mediocre although it has good Tube connection to Zone 1. Would I have paid the lowest price offered at the SPG website to stay here again' No. £150 is more reflective of the service I received.
