The Lion & Key Hotel
Ranked #8 of 579 London B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 October 2017 via mobile

Nice and clean hotel with friendly staff, the rooms are tidy and still fitted out to a good standard. The shower was good and the Internet system allowing connectivity between my mobile and the TV meant watching programs on full size for once. Fairly quiet neighbourhood but it is surrounded by roads on two sides but on street parking only meant having to move on before 8am. I would stay again.

Stayed at this hotel before a big cycling event at the Olympic Park. The welcome was very friendly and extremely efficient. The customer service was exceptional. A really great room that was immaculately clean and very modern. My whole experience was excellent. I would highly recommend this hotel

Room Tip: Room 201 is quiet and easy to locate from the lift

We had a trip to the Olympic velodrome and stayed here at the lion and key,it really is a decent contemporary hotel with bar and restaurant which serves mainly Turkish style food with a good choice. The staff are excellent and very happy to serve and help. Very clean,decent sized room. Shower cubicle a bit small but good shower. It is the only place to stay in this area in my opinion as the surrounding area itself is a dump.

Stayed here on a business trip. Booked a double room just for myself. Was really lovely. Big comfy bed beautiful bathroom with huge shower. Interactive tv. Air con. Restaurant was really good and cheap. £9 for a fantastic chicken salad. Staff were helpful and polite. Really enjoyable stay. No parking at hotel but you can park on a side street a short walk away. Will definitely use again.

Well, I don't know how to star. This hotel is incredible, the staff, the rooms are very clean and modern. ( I stayed in Triple Room and Double Room). The location is quiet and the Leyton Metro Station is about 10 min walk. Nearby there are places to eat and some good pubs.I really want to come back to this hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms are brilliant.
