        Cheap, ideally located for my business use, available car parking

        No tea and coffee in rooms, breakfast not available until 8 am (so didnt get any)

        The bed was clean and comfortable

        The breakfast was terrible! No beans in stock , terrible white bread, even the tea was dreadful! Other guests were very noisy leaving early and arriving late. The shower barely worked.

        The staff were polite and helpful.

        Some difficulty in finding the hotel due to its lack of a street frontage.

        (1) The Receptionist trying to add £5 extra on the price for credit card payment on arrival. (2) The fact that it is off of a side road of mare street, down a dark alley past two disused buildings, one with broken windows and the city inn express sign on it. Pretty hard to find. (3) Getting to sleep is hard given it's right by a 24hr garage and the water pump in/near the rooms goes off every 15 minutes loudly all through the night. (4) The shower was so weak that I sat in the shower cubicle in order to get any pressure out to wash. (5) I've been in small bathrooms before but never one where I had to wedge my leg under the sink just to be able to get onto the toilet.

        Staff were helpful, hotel was clean.

        The location was dangerous - I had my car stolen from the street outside. The bed sheets had big cigarette burns in them. The television reception was very poor and unwatchable. I was placed in a room 3 flights up, though the hotel seemed to be nearly empty.

        I wasn't expecting much from the City Inn Express, especially as the price was so cheap, but it was close to an event we were attending. I was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness of what is essentially a budget hotel. I stayed in a triple room which was cosy and comfortable. I hadn't realised breakfast was included so that was nice treat in the morning.

        The beds in the room were pretty worn, however the linen was clean.

        Fair price according to standard.

        The location of the hotel; far from London centrum and in a dirty and deteriorated area.

        The steps but the staff helped with my suitcase

        Room was clean and comfortable. If you are not fussy and just want a bed for the night then this is the place for you.

        3.5% surcharge even on debit cards. This should not happen nowadays. Should be built into your price then you can offer a discount for cash if you wish.. Breakfast was a very poor affair. Cramped room and then 2 greasy fried eggs, a bit of toast and some beans and a cheap glass of fruit juice. Tea did not arrive until 5 mins after I finished Breakfast. Overpriced at £55.

        I booked this hotel for LED festival in Victoria park, if your going to a festival in vickky park it's perfect. No frills but staff are great and clean comfortable room. Serves it's role perfect as a place to crash.

        Good Location. Very handy for Victoria Park events.

        Very basic but good value for a budget hotel in London.
