1.18km from Gotto TrattoriaMe and a friend stayed here on the first night of our Interrail trip. We arrived at the hotel at around 1pm which was earlier than the advertised check in time just to drop our bags off before heading into London for the day, but the very friendly reception staff informed us our room was ready and that we could check in which was an added bonus. The room was great and very clean. I have stayed here before so had an idea of what to expect from the room and certainly wasn't disappointed, the rooms are modern and well furnished. Given we were staying during the pandemic I was impressed with the level of cleanliness and felt safe during my stay. During check-in we were informed that the breakfast offering would be in a take out bag delivered to our room at a time to suit us, this was more than acceptable given the situation. The following morning our breakfast was delivered to our room at exactly the time requested and contained a good selection of items. This take-out breakfast was quite convenient given we were catching the 08:55 Eurostar from St Pancras and meant we could take it with us to eat on the train. We checked out at around 07:50, again with very friendly reception staff, and made our way to Stratford International (a <1 min walk away) for a Southeastern High Speed service to St Pancras. We arrived at St Pancras just after 8am and arrived at the Eurostar check-in in good time. I definitely recommend staying at The Stratford and I'm looking forward to when I can return! I am also likely to return for stays before early Eurostar departures as the high speed rail connection makes it as quick, if not quicker, than the walk from any of the Kings Cross hotels.
