My wife booked an apartment at the town hall for a week as a base before moving back to Australia We arrived My wife, daughter and I, the room was booked for the 3 of us. At reception we were asked to wait while they check the room was ready. 10 mins later we were told everything was fine. Arriving in the room it was clearly missing the bed for our daughter and one of pet hates no 3rd towel. It was all sorted in the end but clear not a great start. Add to the a massive wedding that shock our room in the basement and a fire alarm the next morning that was a staff mistake. Clearly not good enough for the money paid

Over recent years we’ve been frequent visitors to the amazing Da Terra in the Bethnal Green Town Hall. So when we heard that the team would be taking over the Corner Room on the first floor as a more casual brazilian / italian restaurant we couldn’t wait to visit. This opportunity came on saturday evening. So we headed off to bethnal green stopping first at Da Terra to say a quick hello to Rafael , Charlie and a couple of the team before heading up to the first floor. Here we were given a nice welcome before being escorted to our table in the corner of the restaurant giving us a great view of the whole dining room. Once settled it was nice of manager Lilian to offer us a complimentary drink to start us off while we looked at the menu. This is a menu designed for sharing with small plates , pasta dishes , main courses and desserts that gives you the freedom to choose as many dishes as you like. On her return she gave us some great recommendations and would also advise us on how many dishes to order (depending on how hungry you are of course). Once we’d placed our order it was then time to meet the sommelier Marco who after giving us a few lovely wines to choose from we opted for the fabulous Barbera D’Alba 2021 Trediberri. This was a medium bodied fruity delight and accompanied the food perfectly. Now it was time to get started on the Small Plates which began with the Bolinhos de Bacalhau (cod croquettes) followed quickly with a fantastic Bread selection accompanied with cultured butter , stracciatella and olive oil. Closely behind came the rest of the small plates including Churros Pecorino , Porchetta Tonnata , Panzanella Salad and Veal Battuta with marrow and batata palha. All the dishes were absolutely delicious with flavours to die for. Next to arrive were two absolutely stunning pasta dishes. The first was the Brixham Crab Linguine which with the look on my wife’s face I could see how good it was. The second was my dish of the night an Aged Beef Short Rib Pappardelle that was simply heaven on a plate. Now it was time for the Main courses and the amazing food didn’t stop here either. We ordered the Iberico Pork with black beans and farofa along with the Picanha Skewer , palm hearts and kale. Both dishes together with their accompaniment’s were a perfect combination. We then needed a little rest before moving on to Desserts. Here we decided to choose three which were the Doce de Leite Doughnut’s , Guava Creme Caramel with caramelised tapioca. The last dessert of warm Roasted Pineapple with coconut ice cream which was brought to the table by head chef Joe. This was a nice touch and also gave us the opportunity to thank him personally for the fantastic food he and his team had produced. We finished with a coffee to bring to an end a fabulous evening of Brazilian / Italian cuisine. The food was amazing , the wine was fabulous and the service was very friendly. This restaurant is a great addition to the east london food scene and one that I would highly recommend paying a visit to and I look forward to returning again soon. Thank You Joe , Lilian , Marco and all the team for a great evening and look forward to seeing you all again soon.

I had occasion to stay over at the Town Hall Hotel, as I was attending a company evening event in the East End of London This hotel had great comments on Tripadvisor and offered competitive rates to stay over. From the moment you walk into this hotel it’s character is obvious Fabulous reception area, with marbled white stair case. Some really polite receptionist checked me in and I went to my room. I was not quite expecting this quality of accommodation it was brilliant Ample space, comfortable space. It even had a cute fireplace Had wonderful nights sleep. The best was yet to come breakfast hosted by a wonderful gentleman who is a pleasure to be greeted by in the morning. Nothing was too much to ask for. I ordered full English with scrambled eggs. The sausages were so good and the eggs Devine. Best hotel breakfast I have had in a long time. Big thank you to the breakfast manager and his team. I will be back !
One of the worst hotel experiences in memory

This used to be a fantastic hotel but like a lot of London properties the pandemic has really changed things. My room, a suite, was dirty with hairs on upholstery, a half drunk bottle of water, food stains and crumbs on furniture and a 'Congratulations' party balloon hanging in the ceiling. I called for the hotel manager to come up. He wasn't at all apologetic and just offered to put me in an equivalent room which of course I accepted. The new room was at least clean but the condition of the rooms generally are very run down and poor. The counter top in the new room was all broken and held together with tape. One lamp didn't work. Upholstery was stained, walls marked and chipped etc. Whole room felt unclean.
Second time visit, definitely WON’T be a third…

I oh-so foolishly gave this hotel a second chance. Goodness knows why. I must have taken temporary leave of my faculties. First stay was in 2018: rude service at reception, we were charged for the room twice and then had to wait an inordinate length of time for a refund. Not a great start. Fast-forward to 2022 and we had to stay in the area, so I booked again. Things change, right? Wrong. We arrived at 1.30pm and were told we couldn’t check-in. Fair enough, check-in was listed in my email confirmation at 2pm. When I asked if we could check-in at 2pm I was told ‘no, that’s changed now.’ No worries! We’re in London! We went out, finally checking in around 10pm and were given a lovely reception (thank you) and check-in, with the standard £50 security deposit taken from my card. Room on the lower ground level was superficially clean, modern and tastefully decorated. Huzzah! But on closer inspection, there were scratches and chips on most furniture and walls. That’s OK. Life isn’t perfect. On opening a cupboard, there was a previous guest’s food still there. Not just a few crumbs either. An open loaf of bread, cornflakes, half eaten chocolate, crisps and bagels. Very odd and pretty shabby. To bed and what should have been a sound night’s sleep on a very comfy pillow was punctuated with an immensely loud, incessant noise from the plumbing in the bathroom every 20 minutes, keeping us awake all night. I’m a heavy sleeper and it was honestly impossible to sleep. Sadly the worst night I’ve ever had in a hotel, and I’ve stayed in some questionable establishments across the globe. Ahem. Breakfast was the absolute highlight (thank you again) and was delicious. At check-out I mentioned both the leftover food in the room and 24 hour orchestra from the pipes. Not sure my dissatisfaction was heard? Oh, by the way, I’m still waiting for the hotel to release the £50 security deposit. Thanks. Never again. What a shame. It could be excellent.
