Chose this hotel because of its location which was perfect for our needs. Our room was small compared to many hotels, but it was all we needed for this visit. The hotel was clean throughout, and we were happy with the Covid precautions. Food and drink was limited due to Covid restrictions. The staff deserve special mention. They were all courteous, helpful, and showed genuine interest in ensuring our stay was trouble-free. An added bonus was the lovely Venezuelan restaurant behind the hotel.
I have always wanted to stay here as its right by the office I work in when visiting from out of town. I have never been able to afford it (I work for a charity) but their Covid pricing makes it comparable to the cheapest air bnb in the area so I treated myself. It's great. Clean, lovely modern decor in glass and steel rather than plastic, very kind staff who knew their stuff on Covid 19 rules and how to check people in from a distance, etc. I was in a pod room which was a cut above pods at Yohotel and Hotels - as compact, but with hangers that have hooks, no silly non blanket on the bed, great reading lights, and a desk with a cube chair that was fine for a few hours work. Key system works well with remote check in for c19. Good grade of cotton in the sheet. Power plugs well positioned for overnight charging. Loved it.
The rooms are far too small and unfurnished considering the price. Some rooms are sold as “double” but the bed is stuck against the walls in a corner making it impossible for the second guest to get off the bed without jumping over the partner. If it was sold for what it is - a pod for people not needing a proper hotel room - and priced accordingly, I wouldn’t have had an issue.. but this is sold like a cool East London hotel and it’s misleading. I booked a room for my parents visiting from Italy and we had to change it a paid extra money because it was not suitable at all and it was barely okay as a single room, let alone a double.
All Covid secure measures in place and felt safe but not too obtrusive. Hotel room comfy and very clean. Friendly staff ands brilliant communication from booking to check out. Bar not fully operational due to restrictions but looked good - plenty of great eateries and bars very close by. Highly recommend.
Although, it was a lil tricky getting my room, the whole experience was fantastic. The staff were absolutely phenomenal! Very accommodating and always available to help. I would come back again and again! No stopping me :)
