Hotel Town Hall in London...any reports

Jump to last reply

In planning for our first visit to London, we have looked at AirBnB options, and we have considered renting a flat. The Hotel Town Hotel is moderate in price (by London standards), and it appears very spacious. Although we had wanted to avoid spending a week in a big city hotel on this trip, we are thinking this might fit the bill. Much of what I have read about the hotel is positive, although there seems to be some debate about the location. It cuts both ways. In two successive reviews on TripAdvisor from earlier this year, one reviewer seemed to feel that the neighborhood was marginal, but the next reviewer praised it as an an artsy, bohemian type of neighborhood. I suppose it could be both. There is also the fact that, in the East End, we are rather far from many of the places we will want to visit, although I expect we are likely to be more than just a stroll away from some major attractions no matter where we stay. So, the questions I'd have for Forum members who may have stayed at the Town Hall are about the feel of the neighborhood and the wisdom of using this location as a base for exploring London. Thanks!
