Good 6.0
Still a few kinks
Easy self check in. Minimalist services. Free drink if you opt out of room cleaning. Couldn't get my work laptop to connect to the wifi (mobile worked fine though). Staff is still figuring it out. One bar staff member made a rather offensive comment to me one evening, management was kind and open to my feedback when I complained. At check out, another staff member took my key and room number without any pleasantries and didn't even offer a goodbye or thank me for my stay. Overall, wouldn't likely stay again, high price for minimal, inconsistent service.

Quirky hotel in London
Pros: Clean room, friendly staff. Interesting decor, easy to check-in. Also tube station (Aldgate east) is only 2 minutes away. Cons: the temperature in the room was freezing as we arrived and after heating for hours the floor was still very cold.

Book with Caution
This is a budget hotel. This place would classified as a motel by U.S. standards. I'd rate it 2.5 stars. My room had no windows (which I knew when booking). From an emergency and fire safety perspective, I don't even know how that's legal. The best part about the hotel is likely the restaurant (Motley). However, I give the restaurant zero stars since my chicken kabob entree was extremely under-cooked, still pink and I had to send it back. They removed it from the bill, but had to go out and scavenge for food elsewhere. The rooms are basic, no frills. Bring your own wash cloth. In-room safe was broken. Since I was traveling for business, I avoided the room. It was uncomfortable to work in. However, the free Wi-Fi was fast but on an unsecure network. I would only recommend this hotel for budget leisure traveler staying 1 night and have no other options. I stayed 3 nights and was could NOT wait to leave. Neighborhood can be sketchy at night for single females.

Yes & No
The hotel looks amazing but it wasn’t the cleanest place that I ever stayed at. When I got there my bedsheet had a black stain (that I took a picture of) & & 2 red dots on the comforter that touches the sheet, not sure what that could have been but I took a picture of that also. The bathroom was great in my opinion. I just wish the room was a little brighter. Sorry, I had the room without windows.

Staff with a bad attitude
Great location if you want to be near downtown. The staff was unfriendly, rude and acted like you were putting them out for checking into the hotel.
