4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Was in London for a show at the Excel and spent 5 nights at this hotel. It was a very comfortable stay. The room was very clean. Also, even though the hotel is located close to City Airport and with a DLR line right outside it was very quiet. Breakfast was good, although no cheese! Staff were extremely polite and... More

This was a great location for me as I was attending a meeting in the Excel centre which the holiday was right beside. But to get into central London you need to get the DLR and the underground, so not super convenient for someone wanting to explore Central London. Staff very friendly and helpful. Bedroom spacious with great sheets! but... More

We stayed at Premier Inn Docklands when attending a large conference at Excel. We checked in at 0900 which was fantastic since we had just travelled from Australia! the bed and pillows were very comfortable, the room was dark (which was great for sleeping - it was light if you opened the drapes), the breakfast was included and excellent. The... More

Great for links with O2 via the Emirates gondolas ... Or DLR. we liked the bar, which tried hard to have atmosphere. We bought the boxes of snacks- olives, chicken wings, potatoes....for just over a tenner. It was good value. Breakfast was in my opinion a bit pricey. Lots of choice and nice enough, but I'd rather have eaten at... More

Arrived at the hotel, no one to greet me at the desk, had to wait almost 10 minutes for the staff member to attend to me. Welcoming was quite poor too, no asking how I was, just asked my name and that was it. The room was quite large and comfy, although there were hairs (quite a few) in the... More

The Premier Inn brand is a good one, and to be honest it is as comfortable as any more expensive ones. I had a clean and well serviced room with the comfortable bed which really is superb. A nice large TV an en suite bath and shower with plenty of hot water completed the offering. Premier guarantee you a good... More

I have spent few nights during my trip to London at Premier Inn Docklands. It's typical Premier Inn, so you can't really loose on choosing it. My issues are around acces to public transport, which is situated quite far from hotel. It's probably good choice to pick Premier Inn Docklands if you are working at Excel, however if you need...

You can't get too excited about P Inns - they do what they say - give you a good night sleep (if you believe a well known TV personality!) But he's right! Even sandwiched between the Docklands light railway and the flight path of London City airport, this Inn seems to have found insulation that silences rail and air! The... More

Good hotel, right near the airport so you think it's going to be noisy getting to sleep but it's actually not that bad. Near to the train station and only takes about half an hour to get central and much cheaper than staying in the center too. Staying again in February.

Stayed one night for boat show at excel,which is only 5 minute walk away. Super friendly staff. Had the meal deal (evening meal and breakfast) and found food excellent, and good value. The room was clean and tidy. Came by train to kings cross and used Oyster card which we found handy way of paying for underground and DLR to... More
