Well appointed, spacious apartment. Great location for visiting O2 arena (5 minute walk and one tube stop away). All facilities that were needed. Friendly and helpful concierge. Parking was good value and right outside the door but was a bit of a pain to pay for via automatic voice recognition phone call (meter was jammed so wouldn't take coins). All... More

These apartments are very well suited for business teams or families attending an event at the O2. The rooms are spacious, clean and all the basic accommodation is available. However, it lacks some quality, especially the furniture (IKEA) which is a bit worn out and in some details, like a missing light bulb in a bedside lamp.

We had no skype so no internet. The Porters were the best thing about it so informative and helpful. The swimming pool not open but is why we booked it. No keys to door and window in back bedroom and the management of this was not organised at all.

Upon arrival we were asked to wait outside while the receptionist went to get the manager to confirm booking, we were then told our booking had not gone thru, although we had confirmation emails, and had been in contact with the company on numerous occasions during the week to confirm the number of ppl, payments etc. Once payment was confirmed...

We stayed for 4 nights and the least I can say is that we won't be booking with Zen apartments again! A lot of things were broken (and even dangerous) such as wooden thresholds, towel rails, wardrobe handles, a dining-room chair...the carpets and curtains were dirty and stained. The matresses were uncomfortable and the kitchen utensils were broken, old and... More

I had read the reviews prior to arriving and was worried we had booked Meridian Place rather than Discovery Dock. Luckily it was definitely Discover Dock even though the correspondence all came from Meridian Place. We booked through Booking.com but I had not read the documentation until after I had read the reviews. You do need a £200 deposit, but... More

We arrived by car, having phoned 15 minutes before as advised. We knew the area so knew where to go to get access to the car park, although this would be difficult for people not familiar with the area. The person who was there to meet us was no-where to be found, and it took 3 more phone calls with... More

First of all, it should be noted that "Zen Apartments" cover a selection of 2 very different properties: Meridian Place (an older building on the same road, showing some wear and tear) and Discovery Dock, both owned by the same family. After a rental at both places, we keep returning to Discovery Dock East, which is offers a terrific homebase... More
