The apartment was clean and the staff was very helpful. Whenever I need help and I call the front desk, someone is always available to help. I'll definately recommend this place to my friends and family.

Was in London for the TOC Europe 2014 in Excel. Great location!!!!!! Grainstore is literally 30 seconds walk from the exhibition centre. The rooms are spacious and clean, Staff was very friendly and ready to help. Free and very fast Wifi which was a MUST for me because of work. The pictures here are different from what the rooms look... More

Booked in here whilst attending a trade show at the Excel. Zero service to the rooms, no bins emptied , no clean bed linen , towels, etc. The toilet didn't flush ( I fixed it several times during the stay) Various insects appeared under the door of the bathroom and I did find a few bites in the mornings!

Travelling with colleagues from the USA, we had stayed here before so booked an apartment for a trade show at Excel. Communication prior to our arrival was bad, which made me a little concerned. I had to constantly chase for confirmations and updates and all my calls and emails went unanswered. I finally received a confirmation (and apartment change) two... More

Stayed here for a few nights on business and was checked-in - upon advising I would be arriving later - at the Grainstore but was actually staying a short walk away at the Westgate Apartments. All are much and such the same, apparently. Location is great if you're at ExCel but otherwise it's a bit remote. WiFi router didn't work... More

Like other reviewers it took me a little while to find the Apartments as it's not a full hotel with reception and what have you. The staff once I located them were helpful and the room perfectly reasonable for a 3/4 star property, nicely appointed and comfortable. There are a couple of reasonable looking restaurants and bars nearby for a... More

We booked this stay on line and the web site states arrival between 2 and 5. We organised to arrive at 4. Finding the place was really difficult with no real signs and a scruffy office. When we arrived we were told that the lady who needed to check us in had left and there was no one to do... More

I stayed at the Grainstore when I attended a recent conference and exhibition at the ExCel Centre. The rates offered were far more competitive than the nearby hotels and I appreciated the flexibility of having my own lounge and kitchen. As other reviewers have indicated the reception/arrival experience was poor but keep in mind that this is not a hotel... More

I booked the Grainstore Apartments as I was on a business trip and thought the extra space and independence would be ideal. The taxi driver couldn't find the apartments, I couldn't find an entrance, and was left in a scruffy office for ages until someone eventually came, gave me an envelope with one sheet of paper and the key then...

Although the apartment was of a very high stsndard the customer service is appalling. This place is difficult to find, it claims no parking on the internet so we booked to park at London City Airport only to find a multi story a stones throw away for a third of the airport price on arrival. After finally gaining entry the... More
