Booked this because of its easy access to the O2 arena,. Canning Town underground station is a five minute walk away, the O2 just one tube stop away.
Had family room (3 adults sharing), room comfortable with one double bed & double bed settee which was already made up. Our only minor complaint here was that there were only 2 mugs available to use, although a trip to reception rectified that. Beds were comfortable, room warm, shower powerful with ample toiletries provided.
Breakfast in the morning was adequate, plenty of cereal, bread & croissants, but not much hot food, some scrambled egg and baked beans, which ran out very quickly and weren't readily replaced.
Staff very polite, check- in & check out was quick and efficient.
The one gripe that we did have was the services at the hotel bar. After seeing our concert at the O2, we fancied a drink before bed, but discovered (along with other guests that returned at the same time), that the bar had ran out of a lot of alcoholic drinks, no lager, no vodka, no whiskey etc. I realise that this is a smallish hotel, and wouldn't expect it to hold crate loads of alcohol, but felt that I probably have more in my house than that bar held! And I only drink alcohol on special occaisions
