I stayed with two other work colleagues at this hotel for three evening. Yet helpful when asked we all thought the reception staff who are the face of the hotel could have been more welcoming and a little less (looking down their noses at us). It was a shame as the rest of the hotel was faultless.

We stayed here for four days on arrival in the UK. The taxi ride there from Paddington seemed like it was miles away, but actually it was just 5 minutes walk to the station, then 10-15 minutes on the DLR to Tower to start sightseeing, or with a change you could shop all day at Canary Wharf. Also handy to... More

Given the price I wasn't really expecting a lot from this place, but I needed somewhere close to the O2. This place was perfect. A few minutes walk from Canning town DLR / Tube station, and a doddle to get back to after the concert finished. The room was clean and comfortable (and air conditioned, which we were glad of...

This Hotel is great for the O2 Arena just one tube ride to the O2 or the cable car which is about eight minutes walk from the hotel towards the O2. The double bed was smallest I have ever slept in, so it was extremely cosy for both of us and we tried not to move as we would either... More

We stayed here for an event at the 02 arena. Perfectly situated for the venue, about 200 metres from the underground station and only one stop away. The staff are friendly and helpful, clean room, comfortable nights sleep and a perfectly acceptable breakfast on offer. Pretty good all round and no complaints

I wanted to have accommodation near to the O2 Arena but the close-by hotels were exepensive. I was recommended this hotel, which is the next stop from the O2 Arena and only about 10 minutes walk from the Canning Town DLR Station. The hotel is clean and has the normal Holiday Inn Express decor. Special surprise is the free WiFi... More

Despite slightly peripheral location, the hotel is surrounded by many beautiful and interesting place: Emirates Air Lane-Royal Docks, ExCel London, Thames Barrier Park, The O2. . The Tube is close to the hotel. The rooms are clean, well equipped. The staff is friendly. Breakfast pretty good. For all of these I recommend it without restraint.

Our room was fine,we opted for 'the quiet side' as opposed to 'the view' ! Not sure what the view could have been ? Car Wash or A Crane maybe! Comfy bed,decent tv,pleasant staff and ok breakfast. Good location. 5 minutes from tube. Good base for London.
