Rowing boats cutting along moonlit waters are not what everyone imagines a stay in a city Travelodge to offer. The budget chain has become a go-to reference for slumming it in unglamorous locations. Heard the one about the traveller who needed to stay a couple of weeks in East London on business? OK, here goes... For the first of two... More

The hotel has some great things going for it, quiet location in respect of people but there is London city airport across the water which didnt cause any issues, the staff are great and took advantage of getting their full breakfast to start our day of well, the family room were spacious and parking at a reasonable charge.

This hotel is very convenient for visits to Excel, and being close to the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) also for other London attractions. There is no air conditioning, so on a hot night, as we experienced, having the window open resulted in lots of noise from London City Airport, DLR, and the road in front of the hotel. This resulted... More

the hotel is convenient to the conference center, near to DLR transport and to transfer to central London. The rooms are clean and everything worked well.One draw back: the weather was very warm at the time of the stay and there was no air conditioning. However, overall it was excellent value for money.

Stayed for two nights for a show at Excel. Location is great but sadly went downhill from there. Room was hot and first night went to the bar for dinner. Food was acceptable but quantity of chips was not. Barely slept in a very very hard bed and had to open the window because room was very hot. Noise from... More

The only thing that stopped this being a 1... dot(?)... review was the fact that the staff are great. But the hotel was awful. No aircon meant that it was impossible to sleep, and impossible to even stay in the room to work. Speaking of work, the wi-fi, which unlike other hotels, you have to pay for, was just abysmal....

Cheap (?) and cheerful, and relatively new this is one of the better properties in this chain but you get what you pay for, and this is London after all ! The parking is a reasonable price for guests (£8.00 per 24 hours), the reception area is fine and the bar/restaurant is more than adequate. But I'm guessing that you... More

While being roughly 5miles out of the city of London this Travelodge is well worth a visit.It is 5mins walk (I walk slow) from the Prince Albert Station on the DLR (Dock land Railway) board by the Tower of London. It's roughly 20mins from the Tower to Prince Albert.£3-20p with an Oyster card. The staff are very helpful any requests... More
