We stayed one week at the Hallmark Croyden and enjoyed it. Staff was pleasant, room was comfortable. Americans would be happy here; had the basics: restaurant/bar, private bathroom and shower, flat screen TV with dozens of unwatchable British channels, clean/quiet halls, large foyer area for relaxing, close to the busline.
We did not have a car for our trip and didn't have any trouble navigating London. Bus drops off and picks up less than one block from the front door of the hotel and takes you to and from the East Croyden Train station where you can get to central London or Gatwick easily. We flew in to Heathrow and it was about 90 minutes of trains and a bus, but I would recommend Gatwick, if possible. There is free wifi in the building, but it's sketchy at times. There was a small refrigerator and hot-water pot (tea pot) in our room.
well located near east croydon station, plenty of places to eat/drink/shop nearby
hotel has small but nice pool, steam pool, sauna
superior bedrooms good quality and clean, good overall value,
very friendly staff too
a big recommend
"Comfortable, Clean, Homely and located in the town centre"
Great place in Croydon. I was travelling to central london and it only took fifteen minutes from East Croydon, it cost me less than half the price of a central london hotel. Place was clean, confortable and the staff were helpful. Internet was fast and free. Oh and they gave me a free drink voucher for the Bar next door. Use of my private kitchen was great as i am a strict vegitarian and tend not to like restaurants. Definitely worth staying at.
The hotel was just as described and met our needs, including price. For a family of 6 this is a great way of staying in London without paying a fortune. Room was clean and all bedding, towels etc were waiting for us. Don't expect to see any staff, though I did bump into the caretaker. This does mean there's noone to ask things like "where can I get some milk" or train times. All in all you get what you pay for and it's a comfy stay.
The hotel was a joke for parking i had to park on the other side of the dual carriage way and pay £8.50 for a 24 hour stay. Easy and quick check in, the room was spacious and clean. We had dinner in the resturant it was a bit pricey but you cant complin much as the food was excellent.
