OK, so it's not the Ritz, but the rooms are clean, the beds are the usual Crowne Plaza brand and therefore suprimely comfortable. The staff are your average hotel staff in London (don't speak perfect English, but certainly no communication difficulties)! Food is ok, as is breakfast. The best thing about the hotel is the decor (in my view), it is modern, but inoffensive. Certainly, if you are at ExCel, you can't go wroing! For central London it is a short journey by DLR and Tube away, about 25 mins. Due to its out of city location, the rates tend to be much less than your average London hotel -expect to pay about £90 per room if you book about 2 weeks in advance. In London on the other hand £150 would be a reasonable expectation -the rooms are also bigger at this hotel. There is nothing "special" about this hotel, it is soulless, but it woks just fine.
