I travelled with my daughter. We like separate rooms so booked a 1 bedroomed apartment which had a separate bed settee in the next room.
Other Comments
When booking I wanted a one bedroomed apartment. The only one I could see had disabled access so I booked that but would have preferred a one bedroomed apartment with bed settee in adjoining room that was not disabled access as the bathroom took up alot of space. Fresh milk in the fridge would have been nice.However the apartment was quiet and had everything we needed. Staff very nice.

There were not King beds as advertised. No housekeeping until day 3, no phones in the room to call for towels etc. Hotel advertised early check in but tried to charge for it.

Easy to check in. Left luggage there before check in too. Room was very nice and comfy bed. Breakfast was continental but very nice. Although staff didn't show us where anything was so we didn't see the cereals and fruit that was behind the bar area.
Other Comments
Not a bad location. Quite far out in a taxi but only a few mins walk from Aldgate East tube station so easy to get everywhere. Would stay here again with a doubt.

Hi, the only reason I said I didn’t enjoy it was because we were unable to stay on Monday night owing to me being too ill to travel to London. Will try to book again to visit in the next few months. So disappointed. The stars given above are hypothetical but it wouldn’t let me submit this without completing this section.
