Felt very clean as soon as I arrived given the ground floor location of its swimming pool (the reception smelled like chlorine). Got a nice room with the view of the river ... breakfast was not bad (usual British fare: sausage, bacon, eggs, beans, bread, fruits, coffee/tea). Location is not the best if you plan to travel for leisure and go to downtown (lots of train transfers), but perfect if you're in it for any trade show at ExCel, as it is just a few minutes away by walking. By cab from the Tower Bridge it cost me around 20-something pounds.
Only 2 hours of free wi-fi per 24 hours by the way, then they charge differently per package you choose.
