East of London
The budget-friendly Cranbrook Hotel, in the eastern suburb of Ilford, is a 30- to 40- minute train trip from central London. The Ilford and Gants Hill Stations are both a short walk away.
30 minutes to the center
Ilford has several pubs, restaurants, and shops, and there's also a shopping mall at the Tube station. For all other amenities you'll need to take the short train trip into London's central Liverpool Street Station.
Free WiFi, free breakfast
The small Cranbrook Hotel has free WiFi and free breakfast, as well as free parking. The hotel restaurant doubles as a lounge for guests.
Guestrooms are compact and simple, with a TV, ensuite bathroom, and tea and coffee makers. There's no elevator, so you'll have to be prepared to take the stairs.
