I stayed for 2 nights for business. It was convenient for nearby Bishopsgate & City. The room was number 10 on the ground floor by reception. No issues with noise. Very clean room with coffee making bits. Good bathroom with great shower. I was nicely surprised at how clean and comfortable it was. Breakfast was good with selection of fruit,... More

Very helpful, friendly staff. Squeaky clean room, comfortable beds, decent breakfast, excellent value for money. Walls are a bit thin, one night I could hear my neighbours talking which kept me awake a while, but nothing terrible. Perfect for access to the Tobacco Dock and Shadwell Station, just a few minutes walk.

We've been in London for 3 days. The hotel is cozy and clean, located in a very quiet area close to the DLR. Don't expect nothing special but they serve a decent breakfast, the location is perfect and the staff is attentive and efficient. Definitely a good value for money.

I think the staff in this hotel is very friendly and the rooms are quite okay. The floor seemed to be a bit unclean and the remote control for the TV wasn't very neat as well... The hotel is near a DLR station and the Commercial Road, what is pretty good. In the night it was quiet, although we stayed... More

The room was spacious with a nice bathroom. The carpet could be changed and the door-lock on the outside was a bit tricky. The breakfast was really good and offered a variety. The staff were very nice and helpful and it was very close to the London Overground Station Shadwell.

This little hotel, whilst basic, is clean and tidy, with big rooms, excellent bathrooms and huge televisions. This coupled with its location makes it a perfect place to see London on a budget, or use as an overnight stay for business. 2 minutes walk from Shadwell DLR means you can be in St Pauls in 10 minutes, Hyde Park in...

...as the saying goes. Dockside is a great location for exploring London on a budget. A very short walk to the DLR at Shadwell and one stop takes you to Bank. Even Whitechapel is in walking distance so you can visit the infamous "The Blind Beggar" pub. The hotel is clean, modern and friendly with great showers and whilst the... More

If you're looking for a low-budget friendly place, this modest spot is a good choice. It's a small motel, with small rooms and it's definitely not fancy, but for it's price and for a short overstay you can definitely go for it.
