A nice little London hotel about 5 minutes away from the Bethnal Green tube station. The rooms are neat, of (maybe slightly above) average size in this price range. The bathrooms are quite spacious in my opinion, which was a welcome change. All in all, I had a very pleasant stay; just two little things bothered me - the temperature in the fridge in the shared kitchen was set to so low, it may as well have been a freezer, and wifi was only available in the public area of the hotel, which is outside (under a roof, plenty of seating provided), but there were no outlets (my laptop's battery life is about 15-20 minutes, meh). Would definitely stay at Old Friend Hotel again, provided I had a better laptop or a cellphone with wifi

Old Friend Hotel Reviews
The room was tidy and comfortable and the staff were very friendly and helpful at Old Friend Hotel
Very comfortable and good value for money, also very central. Good transport within minutes. Only downside I was right at the top of the building about 4 flights of stairs. I am visually impaired so this was not ideal so if anyone has a disability ensure you get ground floor otherwise can't fault accommodation or service
Staff polite enough, rooms clean, overall left to your own devices and allowed to get on with it. Down side, rooms so small, fan didn't work in the room, and the court yard to relax and have a coffee looked like Beirut!!! Strange thing is, if in London for a gig again and on a budget would probably book Old Friend Hotel again
Only booked the week before going and got a reasonable price through TravelStay. Basic room but clean. You make your own breakfast in a small kitchen so may be an issue if everyone is there at once (seats 8 but not comfortably). No frills but at the price I paid I am happy to use Old Friend Hotel again
