Stayed at this hotel for two nights at the end of November. When we first arrived via DLR (Prince Regent station), we were a little unsure of where the hotel was, though we knew it was close by. Hopefully, hotel staff will see to it that a sign is placed to offer directions for DLR passengers. But, by asking a few people at the Excel Center (right next door), we were quickly directed to the hotel. It is clean and modern, and only a two minute walk to the train station. Checked in easily and the staff was friendly. They were sure to tell us how to use the key card to access the elevators (as noted as troublesome in some other reviews) and happily helped us when we had difficulty using the room phone and hotel wifi. The free wifi is a BIG plus. The O2 Center is within easy reach of the hotel and even though it's a bit out of the city, we never found the ride into London to be too troublesome. The room itself was comfortable. The blackout shades do make it a bit dark, as you'll never know it's light outside in the morning until you open the shades. The shower and bath areas are nice, though I did notice that the water did not get quite as hot as I would have liked. A few extra hooks or places for towels to hang would be helpful, but I found the room enjoyable and would definitely stay here again. Grabbed a muffin from the quick breakfast area and it was tasty and not overly expensive.
