Stayed in this hotel on my own as I was meeting my friends at the O2 arena for a concert. Got there before check-in time at 3pm so accepted that I had to pay the £10 fee. However, staff were very reluctant to let me check-in before 3pm and kept me waiting in reception, even though I told them I was in a hurry to meet my friends. Eventually got allocated a room. My room was the first one on floor three, directly opposite the door to the lift and stair-well, which made for an extremely disturbed night's sleep. I did not sleep a wink! The door outside was constantly banging and I was forever checking that the door to my room was locked as I could hear people right outside my door, considering I was on my own. At about 4am, someone decided to empty a bottle-bank right outside my open window, which as you can imagine, makes for a loud crashing noise! Going back to going out for the evening, I was not directed to the nearest tube station and so had to google it myself. Word of advise: DO NOT use London City Airport tube station- it's too far away to walk and the roads are earily quiet, not nice for a lonely young woman! I decided to use Pontoon Docks station, still a half a mile walk away and still a strangely quiet area of London. I was glad to get out of that area and into central London with more people. The hotel is convenient for the O2 if you are driving there- but not if you want to take the tube. It felt extremely isolated from the rest of London- like a ghost town! The next morning, having not slept at all, I decided I would check-out as late as possible to give myself a rest. However, the cleaner had other ideas. Being the first room you come to on that floor, I guess the cleaner wanted to get at it first. She was hoovering under the crack of my door at 8am, as if she wanted to get in! Banging the thing on my door, it felt as if she was pushing me out! I'd already shoved my t-shirt under the door to stop the light coming in so she was essentially sucking it through! Very disturbed night, no sleep, bad location and dodgy area. Next time I book a hotel for the O2 it'll be one closer to London's centre and not in an area like this! Not fun for a solo traveller.
