Cheapish Hotel with a nice workspace (or just the workspace)
Save

Hi

Coming to London midweek for mix of work and pleasure. Need to be able to work on a laptop in the morning and early afternoon on day of arrival before most hotels allow a check in. So I'm looking for either:

- a hotel with a quiet comfortable workspace they'd let me use before check in

- somewhere else I could work quietly for 4-5 hours

Location - Stratford or Liverpool Street ideal but willing to travel.

Cheers!

I stayed at the Blackfriars Premier Inn last weekend and know that had my room been ready they would have checked me in despite it being three hours ahead of 4pm check-in. There was plenty of space in the lobby area to grab a bit of privacy but naturally that depends on footfall on the day. Free WiFi too.

Host Cafe, a coffee-shop inside St Mary Aldermary church just north of Mansion House station will book you a table for up to 4 hours for £10 and include two coffees/teas etc in the price. It's good coffee too.

Welcome

Why don't you request an early check in?

Good luck
