"Such a lovely place"
Stayed earlier this week for 1 night on a business trip and couldn't fail to be impressed, had already noticed how tasteful the decor was in the lobby and hallways and how plush the carpet was before even I got to my room. The room itself was exceptional, really stylish fixtures and fittings, great use of the space to accommodate the kitchen, you could see a lot of thought had gone into the furniture chosen for the room, it felt like luxury but at a very fair price. Didn't get chance to use the pool unfortunately but glad I made time for breakfast as it was hands down the best scrambled eggs I have ever had, my compliments to the chef! I won't hesitate to stay at this hotel again as it's only a short walk to the Bethnal Green tube station which has good links to other lines for getting around the city, have stayed at many London hotels with higher prices which are nowhere near as nice as this.
"great east end location, lovely room, shame staff and bar isn't better"
Arrived, having booked through Tablet. Couldn't find reservation and kept me waiting 15 mins until it was located. Sadly receptionist had poor English and did little to apologise, despite presenting the reservation on email. Just very unpleasant unwelcoming start to trip. Room was great, spotless and great amenities - huge bath, lovely lounge area and useful kitchenette. Location is great with superb bars and Columbia Road on its doorstep - please explore and don't stick to snotty bar that won't prepare anything for you off the menu. Wanted an expresso martini, but they refused to make it as it wasn't on the menu......bar lacked any atmosphere and needed refurbishment. Loads better places locally. Otherwise pleasant stay!
"Better, bigger bed please..."
I liked the quirkiness of the hotel and although not to my taste, the furniture definitely took me back to my childhood in a good way! We had an executive studio which offered good value-for-money. Very spacious, nice well-equipped kitchenette and the bathroom was clean and modern with L'occitane toiletries which was a bonus as the brand is one of my favourites. The view out of the windows was pretty dire and the location is not one we would choose (we were attending a function) but, that aside, we had everything we needed for a one-night stay and all the staff we met were friendly and helpful. However, there was one downside - the bed!! Granted it was a king (5ft) but there was plenty of space to accommodate a superking (6ft) which I do now expect from 4* or 5* hotels. Also having a superking at home, it felt like a bit of a comedown to sleep in a smaller bed. We are not large people but have just grown accustomed to having space and expect a hotel bed to be equally as comfy, if not better. Two pillows - very uncomfortable solid hard or equally as uncomfortable super-soft - all of which led to a restless night. Whilst the hotel certainly gives you a back-in-time feel, I prefer modern luxury when it comes to sleep time.
"Overnight stay in Bethnal Green"
We stayed at the town hall as it was near my partners sons home in Bethnal Green and looked a better bet than TheRe. It’s a gorgeous building and has some nice quirky areas in it. We had a small apartment with kitchen etc, if you were staying a while it would be excellent. As it was a one night for us we didn’t really use the facilities that much but everything you’d expect was there. Bed very comfortable, clean rooms nice shower and a good breakfast apart from the tea. You can’t make tea from a jug of hot water. It’s just doesn’t work surely a tea urn would be worth the investment or include it served in your buffet breakfast offering. Apart from that lovely staff and a beautiful building in an unlikely place.
"In need of a refurb "
Nice hotel and in a good location. However the room where we stayed in (G02) is in need of a renovation. The windows are not double glazed and this presents two problems: 1) cold air gets through and 2) you get all the noise from the main road. You can see signs of wear and tear through the room; the toilet door, the walls that split the kitchen area, lightbulbs that do not work, curtains that do not close...etc. The heating was also not that great, it was reported to the reception on day one but nothing changed. It is a shame, as it is a nice property that if properly kept it could be a great place to stay. I will wait for this to happen before I go there again.
