We flew down to London city airport which was a short 10 minute drive to this hotel. £9 in a taxi. The staff were friendly and helpful. They were not English. The room was fine. Your bog standard budget hotel room. The bed was comfy, there was a telly and the window opened to let in air. However when entering the toilet, there was a foul smell coming from the drains. When using the sink in the morning to brush teeth etc, it took a very long time for the water to drain away (the plug was not in). The smell lingered in the toilet throughout our stay. In the evenings, we were woken several times as outside our hotel room there was a fire door and when someone went through this door and let it swing close behind them, which you do, the door made a very loud bang. This went on all through the night so each night we did not get a full nights sleep the 4 nights we stayed here. The wifi was very slow also. The location of the hotel was very good. Close to the DLR which took you into the centre of the city where you could catch connecting tube lines. There was a tesco express across the road from the hotel also which was handy. We had a great time in London. The only thing which let this hotel down was the noisy fire doors. They should invest in some soft closing hinges.
