nice ideas, terrible execution
I really wanted to like this hotel and the stay, but things were just really poorly executed. A/C broken; family accessible room means wheelchair accessible and no choice for family other than that. Coffee and tea w/ to go cups but no tops. Order food on an app, but it never comes. All really nice ideas, but just truly poor execution.

Hidden Long-Stay Gem not far from Tube
I recommend this hidden gem! Location: This is a quick walk from the Tube at Aldgate East, and a 12-minute walk to the tube Whitechapel for the Elizabeth Line if you're coming in from Heathrow, for example. Two very easy ways to get to this hotel that I used. I was happy to be upgraded to a higher floor and room, with champagne, from my higher tiered level with But either way, would've been happy with the room I booked. Just the entrance alone is very safe as it's locked at night with keyed access, friendly fabulous staff, there's a cafe, etc. Then on the fifth floor there's a keyed access all you can drink coffee/tea lounge with excellent views and chilled vibes with free wifi. I didn't even see anything else the place has to offer, but for a long term apart/hotel, I'd stay here again. There was also a kettle and Nespresso machine in my room, with full shampoo/conditioner/body wash, and lotion, blow dryer... It's the kind of place you can literally turn up without anything and you'll be fine. There was even a two person sized champagne upon arrival too with a personalized card. I mean wow. They really spend attention to details here, which is great! Someone was dusting off real plant leaves in the lobby too with cleaning spray. This is the sorta thing that really makes a difference when visiting a hotel! I really like that! (Side note that daily house keeping is not included.)
