Even tho hotel is small, it is perfect for what you pay for! More than that! We stayed 10 nights at this place, and really, we felt like home. Manager was more than nice, he was super friendly and helped so much with more than we could ever ask for! Rooms are small, but fine if you don't plan spending... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here, I was attending a course right across the street and the location was impeccable! Right by the DLR station and tube station, couldn't ask for anything better. Meals to order were delicious and breakfast was good as we are allowed to cook our eggs and omelettes in the kitchen and had an ample selection of... More

Staff were extremely helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Also very friendly. Rooms basic but had everything you needed. Very clean. On good bus route. Taxis were arranged through hotel cheaper than black cabs and friendly.

The owner is a very friendly guy. He is very kind and nice to everybody. He helped us in many ways as courtesies, even though it was not his obligation to help us on these things. The hotel is also near underground and DLR stations, made us easy to travel around London. It is definitely our choice for stay when... More

If you’re looking for a stay in a shiny palace, probably City Lodge isn’t a place for you. But if you want to feel welcome, it may be a perfect choice. What makes the difference in City Lodge are the people, always smiling, friendly, ready to talk or help, making you feel like at home. Of course, there are some... More

If you are looking for a good lodge within budget, city lodge is perfect. Staff are friendly and ready to assist. A few minutes from bus stop and underground train station. Good for travellers who wish to see london during the day and would like a decent place to spend the night.

I use to travel a lot during the year, but this was one of the worst place where I've ever stayed. A bed attached to three walls, a little bunker-like blocked window, dirt everywhere, nor enogh furniture neither the essentials. No words....
