Stayed here for one night for the Virgin London Triathlon. Perfectly pleasant hotel and massively busy because of the event. Nice staff who didn't seem to mind people wheeling bikes in and out of the lifts and taking them up to ther rooms. Small but clean and functional room, with nicely designed plastic 'pod' shower room.
Liitle built in seat and desk by the window overlooking the docks, with a lovely view.
Decent free wifi coverage.
Probably because of the busy two day event the good natured noise from the terrace bar which belongs to the adjoining Sofitel was pretty wild until very late, so use earplugs if you get a room that side.
There wasn't room service when we stayed. You had to order then go down and fetch it which was a bit tiresome.But staff friendly and helpful and can't fault them.
Great location for Excel, being right across the square from it. Nice little surrounding restaurants and bars and we had a delicious Italian meal in one in the old warehouse buildings. Really great.
Not a good location for central London, obviously, but there is the railway near by.
We chose to buy breakfast next door at the Sofitel as it has a much nicer restaurant and had a decent cooked buffet breakfast for £31.50 for two.
All in all it's just a low budget conference hotel but it does what it says on the can.
