DLR station is next door. Tube station is a few minutes walk. The hotel is what should be expected for the price.

If you want to be waited on hand and foot then the City Stay might not be for you. But if you want a bed to sleep in, a shower to wash in, and a kitchen to eat in all day long then you probably won't do any better.

Me and my girlfiend stood here for 4 nights on Dec. 2013. The location is good, DLR station is next to the hotel while the closest tube station is less than 5 minutes by foot. On the contrary of some other references, we didn't find the staff unkind, but they all have been nice and gentle. Plus, some people wrote there is no hair-drier (fon) in the rooms: true, but you can ask one at the reception and they give it to you, as well as a plug adaptator for non-UK plugs. In general, for a young and dinamic couple like we are, who spent the most of time visiting the city and went back to the hotel just to have showers and sleep, this is a trully recommended hotel for low-budget staying.

I got what I expected and in some cases I was pleasantly surprised. We got clean towels every day and the kitchen was well equipped for breakfast. Staff was friendly and always there to help and hotel location near the underground was great. I was satisfied and if I returned to London, I may choose CityStay again.

The room was really tiny.. there was only the space to get off the bed. I appreciated the newly refurbished bathroom with single tap (rare in England!). Breakfast in the self-made style like in a hostel (and you have to wash your dishes after use).

A Room the size of a single with 1.40 bed and a bathroom is ok for backpacker's which are only looking for a overnight stay. But if you are looking for a German standards and quialty you won't find it here. A Great location for the undergrund was only minutes away.( Next Door) Services :0( Breakfast- Bread,eggs,coffee,milk etc was avaible do it yourself as for cups pots and pans must yourself clean and put away. A Hotel star rating of 1.5 would be too much even if it has TV,Internet,Hair dryer. but it's Clean.

The City Stay Hotel is the best value-for-money hotel I've found in London. The small but well-equipped & clean kitchen available to guests for 18 hours of the day was the main attraction for me, but I was overall very pleased with the place. Only about 30 minutes on the underground from Victoria, a 5 minute walk to the Bow Rd tube station, with small rooms & bathrooms but clean, comfortable & adequate. I wasn't sure if the self-service breakfast was included or not, but there were supermarkets near-by. Tea & coffee were available in the kitchen. The staff at reception weren't too chatty to begin, but very ready to help & assist as soon as you asked for anything. My only concern was the bedroom window didn't lock but it was nice tohave an opening window. I'd definitely stay again.

The room was not clean enough. Underneath our bed was a bottle and a brush which stayed there our 2 nights! They never cleaned it and the room was dusty. The bed was like a rock. On our second night, when we return to the hotel, the remote control disappeared. We told the guy in reception and said it happened sometimes, that he will find out in the morning. So that night we didn't have a remote control, and the tv is really far from the bed. The guy on reception showed us the breakfast room but never explained that is not free! Two far away from the city center.

Wonderful breakfast with full fridge. Small room with poor interior, partly damaged. Very clean bathroom, no drinking glasses and only 1 towel. Noisy (perhaps like all London), staff helpfull and kind.

One of the perfect facilities in CityStay hotel is the kitchen and the eggs, bread, fruits, cereals, chips and much more that they provide. The Room is quite small, but for the free wifi in room, great kitchen and free food provided, great location, and great price, what more can one ask more. Oh, perhaps, would be even nicer if they change towels every day.
