The hotel is situated in east London, in Clapton, a zone mostly popolated from jewish people, so it's a very safe and quiet place where you can notice these people walking around with their typical hats and families with 4-5 children. I 've stayed at the first floor, in which rooms are better than ground floor, in fact they cost around 85 pounds, while rooms in grounfloor cost 75). The room we had was wide, with carpet on the floor ( so you don't need to bring slippers from home), two single beds - it's hard to find a double bed in England - very confortable and with cleaned sheets ( you know how italian people are: we pay a lot of attention to cleanliness!). The room was composed of a modern tv color on the wall and a sink in front of the 2 beds, a safe on the left side, an air-conditioner, a radiator, a mini fridge ( very usefull also to put bottles of water, bacause the water form the sink is drikable but not good!), a small table with 2 chairs and an armchair. The bathroom is quite small but confortable: it had a sink, an hairdryer, a big bath, a waterbawl and a vertical radiator on wich there were towels. The room is cleaned every day. The breakfast is served from 8 to 10 a.m and is typically continental, so for italian people it will result a little bit poor with just cereals, milk, fruit, yogurt. The and Coffe are available round the clock.
Let's talk about the distance: just going out of the hotel there is a bus stop on your right with buses number 253 and 254 that bring you to the center direction. For example, if you'd like to go to "Oxford Circus" (the main shooping street) you have to take the bus till "Bethnal Green", then take the undergroun,Central line - red - and get off at oxford circus: from the hotel to the center it will take almost 45 minutes.
Another guess is related to the tickets: pubblic transport is quite expensive in London, So if you have to stay a week I suggest you to buy the Oyster card, so you'll pay around 27 pound for 1 week (for zone 1 and 2 that are the center of the city). I've bought instead the daily ticket for zone 1 and 2 because I've stayed there for 4 days: it costs 6.60 a day and it's very affordable ( if you consider tha each single run would cost 2,20 pound, with the daily ticìket or the oyster card you'll save lots of money
It 's a good hotel but choose it if you are used to walk, if not, choose an hotel locaed in the center.
I think I have suggested you important information about this hotel.
Have a nice stay and enjoy London! :-)
