Excellent location with Aldgate Station right next door, this hotel was just perfect. The hotel is modern and stylish . Check in was fast, efficient and friendly. The room was large and well set out with everything you would require for a comfortable stay.

Really good spot.
Really good spot. Right on Aldgate tube. Bus stops excellent service too. Not far from city centre without price tag. Tower of London easy walk. New hotel with comfy rooms not huge but clean and new

This place is well worth the money! We don't have anything bad to say. A contemporary hotel that is literally right next door to a metro is more than you could ask for. The rooms were spacious, kept clean at all times and comfortable. A big thank you to Jay and the boys at reception as well as the lovely door staff and elevator staff. The restaurant on the ground floor had great food for when we were too tired to venture out. Hopefully will be back again soon.

Great public transport location
Very nice hotel ideally situated right next to Aldgate tube station. Plenty of bars and restaurants in close proximity. Also very reasonably priced. Sky bar on the roof is very good for views albeit a bit pricey but no different than comparable venues. Would definitely insider this hotel again when next in London

Accommodation in Central London.
Great location, right next door to Aldgate underground station and walking distance to St Paul's Tower of London and Tate Gallery. Very comfortable bed and shower was fantastic. Room size was compact but well designed and service was great. However cost of stay was the high and there was no breakfast included which I had overlooked when booking. For this reason I would probably not stay there again.

The hotel was only new and had a few teething problems which were more than compensated by wonderful helpful staff. We had a great holiday experience

Room not serviced
Generally we enjoyed the stay. The staff on arrival were very helpful and friendly. The room was on the small side but we were only there for three nights so could cope. Really need a light/table on each side of the bed rather than just one. Disappointed when we returned to find that the room had not been cleaned/towels changed/drinks refreshed. On checking at Reception were told that this was only done once every 3 days - this was not mentioned at check in nor was there any notification in the room. However we were given some coffee sachets and new towels were delivered to the room within a few minutes. There was really nowhere to hang towels to dry so we suffered damp towels for the rest of the stay. Will perhaps try again once Covid finally goes.
