I have nothing but praise for this hotel. I stayed for a week with work and would definitely recommend this to anyone else. Probably the only downside would be the bar and restaurant which tended to be on the high side for prices and lacking in atmosphere. Reception staff were very helpful with a few minor issues. The bedrooms are great and very smart. The hotel is close to London City Airport so there is the occasional noise from aircraft taking off and landing. Location is great and right next to the Xcel Centre. The DLR station is less than 5 minutes’ walk and the area is safe in the evening. There are several other restaurants and bars in the local area if you want to leave the hotel. The hotel is about 30-45 minutes by public transport into the centre of London of 10 minutes to Stratford. Please note that there are quite a bit of steps up and down between Custom House Station and the hotel. Royal Victoria may be a better option. The new Emirates Airline cable car to the 02 Arena is also less than 5 minutes’ walk from the hotel and was an easy and quick way to get across the Thames. A very modern and sophisticated hotel. The Ibis is joined onto this hotel so may be worth considering if price is an option – however, look out for special deals at this hotel.
