The other reviews are spot-on. This is a convenient location if you are attending an event at excel or the O2, but I would not stay here for a vacation. VERY basic hotel amenities, small beds with mushy mattresses. My room was upstairs facing away from the street and overlooking a burned-out warehouse. Basic and tiny bathroom with a tiny shower.
