Low on complementary coffee and milk in the room, but you can fill up 24/7. Hotel bar only opens in the afternoon ... Not good.... More

Great location if you have business near or around Excel centre. Check in was a little slow, however the room more than compensated for this. Modern designed hotel with quick access to the Excel centre or the overground Railway to city centre. Would stay here again.

The room where nice and of average size. Enough to be comfortable. The breakfast was included with my package and was very good. Full English breakfast. They did have a shuttle that took me to Canary Wharf. Very convenient l! The dinner options are a little limited but very delicious.

Nice and Modern hotel with friendly staff. Right next door to the Exhibition center! Easy access to LCY airport, which is at walking distance 15-20 minutes, or by bus. Only used the restaurant for breakfast (Full English) which was great.

Love this hotel and use it as much as possible when on Business in London. Handy for City airport and Canary Wharf. Limited and pricy menus in the restaurant but the staff are great and the rooms are wonderful.
