    7 Reasons to Love The East London Hotel

    I am a frequent traveller and my airport of choice is Stansted because most cheaper Ryanair flights depart from there. Over the last year, I had been contemplating breaking my journeys into two. This is why when I had the opportunity to review the hotel, I jumped at it.

    The East London Hotel is conveniently located in the National Express Bus route to Stansted Airport. Not only that but flying from Southend is a breeze if this hotel is your choice of accommodation. Its proximity to central London makes it an attractive and cost-effective location. Here are some of the other 7 reasons to love The East London Hotel.

    Proximity to London Airports

    As mentioned already, the hotel is located on the route for the National Express bus to Stansted Airport. It’s a 45-minute ride to the airport in a comfortable and airconditioned coach. For other airports like Southend, Heathrow and Gatwich, they are easy to reach via train.

    Using locally sourced foods is not only good for the environment but supports the local community too. We loved that the food we ate was not only delicious, but it was also filling and fresh. 

    Close proximity to train station

    For those wanting to explore other parts of London, Shoreditch is down the road. But if central London is in your sights then, grab a train a minute walk from the hotel.

      You must have been stalking me because I am literally looking at London Hotels as we speak! Come on, own up! I’ve got a few trips planned over the next couple of months and I can spend hours looking because I am quite particular but don’t live in London, so it’s hard to know where to start. Great recommendation for those Stansted flights!
