This hotel is a 10min walk from East Ham Station surrounded by shops, restaurants and is quite a nice cultured area. The hotel is nice, receptionists are very welcoming and accommodating. However the evening security guy is useless and is unable to assist in the most basic tasks he has a bad attitude so if you require anything wait to... More

We stayed in the Ruskin hotel for one night, and found it was lovely! Close to the East Ham tube, easy to find, warm welcome from staff on arrival and breakfast was included too! The room was spacious and clean, bed comfy and the food from the pub was delicious and reasonably priced. Would recommend and would stay again!

Ruskin was a very nice place to stayed while I was in London. It´s very close from East Ham Underground Station (arou 7 minutes walking). There is a good breakfast included and a Pub with a good menu. I would recommend Ruskin Hotel!!

It was a six days stay...our room faced the British Museum. Big and specious room. Staffs were cooperative. Breakfast was good. Bathroom was shared but found very clean. It would have been outstanding if the room had TV... Location is so convenient...everything is just around it. Will visit again for sure...
