This basic and no-frills East End hotel is the perfect economic option for budget travellers, with a prime location in the Stratford area. The Countryside Hotel is not a luxurious establishment, but for those on a limited budget who are in London to see the city rather than spend a lot of time at the hotel it is a reasonable choice. The hotel is situated in Stratford, near the station with its several train services and easy access across the capital. Stratford is conveniently located for travel into the business district of Canary Wharf, and is also within close proximity of attractions including Westfield Stratford shopping centre, the o2 centre and of course, the Olympic Park. Central London and the West End can be reached in under 20 minutes via rail.
There are 22 guest rooms in total, available as a single, double, twin or triple. The decor is basic and somewhat shabby, although rooms are clean and of a decent size. All rooms are centrally heated and ensuite, and have fairly impressive in-room amenities for a budget hotel including free WiFi access, satellite television with DVD player and fridge. The standard of design is not high, but as a base for exploring the rest of the capital the Countryside Hotel meets all the essential requirements.
The staff at the hotel are extremely friendly and available around the clock to help with any requests or problems, with a laundry service and luggage storage available. There is fast and free WiFi throughout the hotel building, as well as convenient parking facilities.
