The East London Hotel

Transport to and from the hotel couldn’t be easier, located in the heart of east London this hotel has public transport links only a stone’s throw away. Unfortunately this also means any travel by car would be restricted with no parking reserved for hotel guests. The whole check in process is not your normal formal staff member behind the desk, instead there is a much more modern vibe upon arriving. With the open planned bottom floor including the bar & self check in screens you can relax with a beer while you, or the staff if you’re enjoying that beer too much, log your details and get your room key.

With over 150 rooms on offer to the public this hotel is capable to cater for even the busiest of occasions, which must be a regular occurrence with a very popular nightlife only around the corner. Even with a large number of rooms and being located in the heart of an urban area the hotel has succeeded in making the most of minimal space. The room was very modern in design with only a small space to work with you don’t get the feeling of being cramped at all and yet still have all the necessities at hand. They include a king size bed with a large flat screen T.V on the wall, plenty of space to change, store clothes & bathroom facilities.

By the time evening comes around the whole area has come alive and the ground floor bar really is a great place to get started if you plan to venture out to town to attractions like box park, junkyard golf & brick lane market just a short walk away. With a wide range of cocktails, beers, non alcoholic drinks and food on offer you could even skip the night out and stay right where you are. For me the decision of what to have at the bar is always a difficult one that often ends with the same result, pint please barman, with so much to offer here I had to try something new and I was glad I did. The bar staff are very friendly & not only offer drinks service but also have a lot knowledge about the surrounding area with good places to visit. Being out the area myself I wasn’t exactly sure where to try so getting their advice was a big help.

After a night out or even just sight seeing its good to know the journey home is stress free, with Bethnal green tube station at the end of the road you are in your room, relaxed and in bed with no distractions, which was nice considering how close to everything you are.

The morning after. After a great nights sleep the process of checking out the hotel is very simple, with the self check out monitors at reception. quick coffee before leaving topped off a great stay which I would certainly recommend.
