I booked a Superior Double Room which was a great size, although the photos do show it with a bit of colour on the bed which my room was missing - not that it's a bad thing, it just didn't look as nice when entering the room! The staff were ok, nothing special. The small magnifying mirror in the bathroom was installed for very tall people and the room was supposed to have a turndown service, that didn't happen - not that I'm bothered to be honest, but don't offer it if it doesn't happen. The location is great for the tube but note that the area itself isn't the best, but it is really convenient for the city. Would I stay again - yes if I was in the area, but it's not a hotel to shout about.

The hotel itself is in a very convenient location, next to the Aldgate tube station, and also contains a 24/7 restaurant on the ground floor. There's a coffee spot right next to it, which is convenient for mornings. It's also very modern. Perhaps the most modern hotel I've ever stayed at. The free wine is also a plus. However, none of these positives make up for the fact that this hotel is LOUD. Noise travels easily between rooms and down the hall elevator. The rooftop has a bar, and noise travels very quickly (and loudly) through the elevator. If you're on an upper floor, you will hear the bass from the music. Additionally, there seemed to be multiple parties going on in the hotel and there didn't seem any effort by the staff or management to control the noise at late hours (these parties went late into the night, up until 4am). When you're needing to wake up super early to catch a train, it's not very conducive for rest. When asked at check out about our stay, we were too groggy to be honest to the morning reception staff, but this was not a pleasant stay due to the noise permeating throughout the hallway and elevator into our room. We would not recommend staying here if you value rest.

Overall good experience, the only two issues are; the walls are paper thin, I can hear everything going on in the rooms next to me. Also, I don’t understand having a roof top bar where you can’t go. You need a reservation and if you’re solo traveling like me, then you can’t make one. Oh but guest not staying at the hotel can go. Found it strange. Otherwise, nice hotel in a good area. I would stay here again.

Great little hotel near the Tower of London. Had a lovely stay. Room was a little small but nice and when in London you rarely spend much time at the hotel. Only draw back is that I would say it caters to a younger crowd. Has a popular bar on the roof and the lobby smelled like intense Axe body spray all the time. But would still recommend it to others for a nice spot in the City
