This hotel is as shabby as it gets. The first room offered was totally unsuitable - the lights didn’t work. The bathroom was tiny and the drawers were filthy. Having moved to a slightly larger room where the lights worked, it was as shabby. They wanted a deposit of £20 to use the remote control for the small tv in the room. I didn’t use it. The location is by a 24 hour petrol station so it’s noisy. There is limited parking on site if you can find the hotel. There’s a sign to the left of the petrol station for this hotel, but it’s actually down a cul de sac and not signposted. There are claims of a breakfast included - a sign on the door of the room, but when I asked the member of staff on duty, he said that it was an old sign and no breakfast was offered. Quite glad actually. Overall this is a place you won’t revisit, but if you have to stay in East London for one night, you won’t die.
