Stayed here during World Science Fiction Convention. It's really close to the ExCel, but don't expect much in the way of comfort. The bed was alright, and the room was clean. The weird pod - like bathroom (shower only, no tub) was interesting, but no hand towels were provided. The staff were quite friendly, and if they had to say... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 2 nights just recently and we thought this hotel was just brilliant. Lovely clean rooms, attractive design and view, nice staff , easily accessible, fair price- the list could go on. Everything was just as expected and I would recommend to a friend/revisit.

We've stayed here for the last two Ride London events. The hotel is easy to find and whilst its car park fills up quickly the Excel one opposite is huge and slightly cheaper at £15 for 24 hours. The rooms are clean and functional and the shower has good pressure and controllable temperature. There's a TV showing Freeview channels, and... More

Very nice, clean and well situated hotel near the O2 arena. Staff could be a bit more friendly, but we had no complaints. It is a long way with public transport from Heathrow Airport, but it is very nicely situated if you have an event in the O2. It's located in a nice area near the old docks. You should... More

Stayed here with my husband for two nights whilst taking part in the London triathlon in August 2014. They are clearly well set up for competitors to stay here with an option to store bikes in your room, early breakfast from 4am and a bonus for us was we could take our dog (for a small fee). The staff were... More

I stayed here with a friend for two nights. We were given a nice and clean twin room with a lovely view of Royal Victoria Dock. This is a lovely location with the Emirates Air Line and a DLR station close by. London City Airport is close by but in the room we didn't hear any noise. There are also... More
