Perfect location, very spacious, and coming home to a fresh clean apartment with beds made and clean sheets and towels was an added bonus. The children loved the upstairs bedrooms and outside seating area. The downstairs Fox restaurant was also very convenient, good English food and helpful staff. With Chinese and Indian restaurants also within 2 min walk and Tesco... More

Superb location in Docklands (next to Custom House Station) which is 15 minutes with the DLR to the Bank station. THe apartment was fully furnished, and we had our towels taken and cleaned every day. As the other comments mention it does need to be looked after in terms of light bulbs, window lockers and at sometimes it was difficult... More

We stayed here during October 2013. It is well connected to overhead rail system so getting around london was not as problem. Rooms are decent and comfortable.There were 2 bedrooms , one living cum dining area and kitchen. Problem is if you arrive in the morning there isnt anyone to greet you and in our case we had to wait.... More

Looked great on the website but wasn't sure it would be as nice as it looked. Booking was easy and we certainly were not disappointed with location, we were literally just outside the Excel centre - perfect!! Great restaurants and shops nearby for food and we even had a few takeaways delivered. There was also a cleaner everyday who was... More

I read the reviews and booked the apartment for my family on a trip to London. Unless you are going to the exhibition centre or O2 arena, this location has good quality restaurants around but is completely isolated with very difficult access to anything of interest unless you have a car. If you do get a car, the apartments provide... More

As we were going to a show at ExCeL we caabot fault the location. Just across the road. What lets this down is the real lack of attention to detail. No one to greet us,we had to wait for someone from the Fox bar and it was his first check in. We were greeted with a demand for £100 deposit... More

We stayed at the Fox Apartments in March when going to an event at the O2 arena which was only 20 minutes away by tube (even thought I reckon I could have swam there quicker as it is just in the other side of the river). There was loads of space for the 5 of us and Liane (the manager)... More

This is the second time we have stayed at the Fox Apartments. The first time was a couple of years ago when the apartments had just been developed. The apartments are very spacious and contemporary, home from home. We were really looking forward to returning; unfortunately we were disappointed and would not return a third time. Simple housekeeping had been... More

We booked the hotel from the EXCEL website. Payment and booking was smooth. When we arrived we were greeted most pleasantly by one of the newly hired staff. We got information about the apartment and they gave us a complementary card with discounts to the nearby restaurants/ bar. Standard: Being a European I do not understand why they use carpets...

My husband and I came across Fox Apartments online while we were looking for holiday accommodation for our visit to London. Normally we stay in brand name hotels that we are used to, but the idea of staying in a glamorous converted warehouse that we could never afford to live in was simply too tempting! Happily, the apartment was exactly... More
