THE ROLLERCOASTER

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 27, 2012


This is my favourite budget hotel in London. It is located right on the famous Brick Lane (Indian restaurants), it’s convenient for my work, central London and its right next to 2 tube stations. Why the rollercoaster? Because their prices go form very cheap to very over-priced. If you book them in advance you can often get a great deal. The staff are lovely and the one time I had a noisy neighbours the staff told them to literally go to bed. They did. The first room I ever stayed in was a former apartment and I had 2 massive bedrooms, 4 beds, living room and a former kitchen area. Rooms are well equipped. All have air-conditioning, large fridge, coffee/tea facilities, good toiletries, safe, magazines (i.e. Time) and are clean. The décor is basic, but who cares. The beds are reasonable and the rooms are quiet. Ask for a room facing away from the road. It’s not a noisy road, but the back of the building is silent at all times.

They have a nice bar called The Lane and a good restaurant called the The Kapok Tree that serves a large Pan Asian menu. If that’s not good enough, you have the famous Brick Lane on your doorstep. In addition to world class Indian Restaurants you also have a South African (excellent) and some Thai restaurants.

This is my hotel of first choice in London on my business budget. They also remember repeat customers and look after you.

Newspapers are complimentary, but wi-fi starts at £2 for an hour.

City Hotel is the sister hotel of the London Guards Hotel near Paddington and Hyde Park. It is also quiet and good value as well.

Unique Quality:
* Great prices (sometimes)
* Quiet
* On Brick Lane
* Well located

Directions:
Tube:
•Aldgate East (Circle, District, Hammersmith & City)
•Aldgate (Circle, Metropolitan)
