I stayed here for 4 nights last week and I can honestly say that this is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. The location is great for getting into central London on both the Underground and the DLR and is also handy for if you fancy doing the Emirates Air Line in Greenwich. The room we had... More

Booked this hotel without reading the previous reviews.It is in a great location with easy access to tube approx 7 minute walk.It does look tired,furniture and decor does need sprucing up,the breakfast was edible and the staff friendly. The room was clean with fresh towels. This is not a top end hotel,it is cheap and cheerful in a good location.

I guess reading the other reviews that some people's expectations are higher than others. We had our room 714 for Saturday night, meeting friends coming from France for the weekend. A Groupon deal, it included breakfast which was something for everyone and all you could want, and well cooked & presented, a bottle of wine, leisure access and our room.... More

Some of the reviews have really made me chuckle. One said that the hotel was too far away from the O2 arena. Maybe the poor staff should move the hotel 'a little to the left', as Basil Fawlty would say! Anyway, let's get in the real world... This hotel cost me less than £80 for one night. It's located next... More

DO NOT STAY HERE. We stayed here one night after flying in late from Greece. It was the worst hotel I have stayed in since college (20 years ago)... disgusting, inconvenient, with paper thin walls and dirty rooms. I was mad at my boyfriend but it wasn't his fault given the website is so unlawfully dishonest in its portrayal of... More

Stayed from the 21st July...Had a room on the 11th floor number 30 which was spotless and lovely views over Canary Wharf. Rooms cleaned daily and always fresh clean white towels. High temperatures, so very pleased we had the air con. The staff were lovely as usual and although breakfast was chaotic, I really enjoyed the fruit. Have been to... More

Was so very disappointed by this hotel. I stayed here about 12 yrs ago & I have to say, that the decor seemed the same. Very dated & very gloomy. On check in - the staff where very friendly & did change my room when I mentioned that the view I had was of a concrete city. That room was... More

My friend and I stayed here for one night as we were going to a concert at the O2. Even though you can see the O2 from the hotel it's a distance to walk and I wouldn't do it. It's also a little walk (5mins) to the DLR and slightly further to river taxi. We opted for a taxi from... More

Stayed here for one night after going to see the Monty Python Reunion at the 02. Their website makes this hotel appear quite plush but actually the rooms are really dated both in style and furnishings. The staff at check in were pleasant enough, I had booked a standard twin and asked if their was availability for a free upgrade... More

The hotel is clean, we found the bed a little small and uncomfortable based on some of the less expensive hotels we have stayed in, towels were also small by comparison. The staff were not very helpful and not necessarily rude but not very short and sharp with their responses. The breakfast was unusual, with no explanation of what we... More
