The best hotels in Hackney
In an unprepossessing new block on Amhurst Road, Travelodge Hackney is a quietish option but, being a minute’s walk from Oslo and Hackney Central station, still close to the action. Smart, contemporary accommodation, from £54, has king-sized beds and tea- and coffee-making facilities. Family rooms have baths wifi costs (£3 for 24 hours), so does the breakfast box (£4.95), so we recommend heading for E5 Bakehouse or one of excellent Mare Street cafés for both.
