The Lion & Key Hotel, Waltham Forest
We had a great stay. The room was clean, comfortable and the 3 person too was much larger than expected. Reception was very helpful. The neighborhood was fine. The hotel is about 15 minute walk to the Leyton station.

Excellent location, amazing value, don't miss!
The hotel is located only 10 minute walk from the Leyton Underground Station - you only need to cross the High Street between them which contains lots of shops incl. Tesco Express which is open until midnight and near the station you have ASDA 24/7, Poundland and many other shops - the hotel itself is very modern, very comfortable rooms, the Internet worked like a charm all the times with Fast Speed and basically it's such a great hotel and worth its value - 5/5.
