7.7 Good
Pros:Bus stop right in front of hotel and proximity to brick lane and spitafields market.
Cons:The air conditioner was making a noise of water drops (kept me awake ) Stains on the carpet next to bed Very uncomfortable mattress (stiff and hard, felt like a box spring) and horrible unfluffy pillows.
7.1 Good
Pros:Nicely done up hotel, very comfortable rooms. Good reception and bar area. 8 mins form Hackney Central with bus stops in front of the hotel and short taxi ride to Shoreditch High St. The rooms are quiet no door slamming that we could hear and of an OK size. Wireless worked ok for me, just needed to check in into Facebook.
Cons:Area is a bit rough. It's more Hackney than Shoreditch. You don't want to be caught walking at night around there. Also we have a bit of an akward check in, not sure the person at receiption was ready for a same sex couple check in.
