City Inn Express Reviews page 5
The City Inn Express is one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed in. Lots of noise from other rooms. People shouting etc. The location left a lot to be desired. Staff not exactly friendly. All that was on offer for breakfast was cereal, eggs and toast and that was it. And the eggs were inedible. They added an extra 5 pound for admin fee. Room was very small and curtains were in a terrible state. You weren't allowed to take your key with you. Had to leave it at reception. All in all a really poor hotel.
City Inn Express was clean, easy to find, staff were very friendly and paid attention - felt very safe as a women travelling alone. This is cheap and cheerful in London if you need to be in Hackney. Beds a bit 'bumpy' and walls a bit thin - but all in all - good value
Comfortable London hotel, good location, near to Victoria Park, worth a visit. Staff very good, especially Reception staff, very friendly and helpful
Clean and comfy, no less than we expected really. Kettle/mugs/glasses all clean and plenty of towels. Staff friendly and helpful and would stay here again
The hotel itself is situated down an alleyway, so was a little tricky to find. But quickly the gentleman on reception came out to greet me. He was pleasant friendly and helpful, as were the rest of the staff. The reception area, lounge and hallways were very clean and tidy. The room was a good size, with more than adequate storage space. However the shower room and toilet was incredibley cramped. Although it sounds like I'm complaining, I expected a cheap and cheerful hotel, as I was on a budget. And I got exactly what I wanted, somewhere cheap to rest my weary legs with pleasant helpful staff and plenty of local facilities to enjoy
Fairly good value for money. Close to centre, nice area. Room was small but quite clean. Bathroom was clean but shower was terrible. Housekeeping consisted of the duvet being roughly thrown over sheets. Staff were pleasant. Don't expect a view
We have stayed at City Inn Express before and this time found the place even better than last time. The hotel is clean, the staff friendly and helpful and the cost excellent. We stayed for two nights over a weekend, and were extremely pleased with how clean our room was. The fact that the staff let us leave our bags before we could get in the room, then moved them to the room for us, and let us leave them after we had checked out was appreciated. We can not fault the City Inn Express for the price and purpose we required the hotel for. It also has great transport links and will be returning again soon.
City Inn Express is almost an insider tip. For the price you get a clean modern friendly room right in the heart of Hackney. It's a 4 min walk to London Fields and Broadway Market. Also walking distance to Victoria Park, Columbia Rd and Bricklane, just the perfect location. Don't expect any luxury, room delivers what you need for a vibrant London visit. A shower, good sleep, 24 hrs access and friendly staff.
Very clean and fresh, excellent service
Location City Inn Express was good. 5 minutes walk from London Fields and then 10 minutes from London Liverpool street. Also very close to a nice swimming pool (London Fields lido). Rooms are small and basic with a small window but contain everything you need for a stay. The rooms are reasonable clean, but certainly not completely clean. The mirror was not clean and also the windows appeared to have not been washed recently. The bed sheet was clean, but do not look to the duvet inside, because the duvet was dirty. The beds lying comfortable. Only I woke up somewhat early of banging doors, but I have to admit that I am more sensitive for the sound of banging doors than most people. Breakfast was ok. The staff was OK. The thing I didnt like from the hotel that you first have to ring a bell and ask for the key of your room before you can enter your room. Maybe this is a very normal situation for a hotel, but I prefer that I am able to walk in without first asking for a key. The hotel for now was ok, but for me next visit to London I think I will search for another hotel
