        The suite we stayed in had an excellent layout and courteous efficient staff. The proximity to the Docklands facilities inc. 02 arena.

        The bed was slightly too soft and resulted in 'middle rolling' for myself and my partner. The layout of the restaurant was compromised by the thoroughfare for rooms at the rear of the the hotel. Signage from the local DLR station would also be a welcome addition.

      • Single
        5.8

        Staff very helpful

        Was disappointed as I thought I'd booked a suite as pictures I was looking at on Booked.net website implied self catering suites, so value for money and location didn't then seem so appealing when I got there. Not the hotel's fault.

      • Older travelers

        we liked being up graded and staff helpfullness

      • Couple
        4.6

        We had a seminar at the London Excel Exhibition and this was at 10 minute walking distance, so that’s good.

        The breakfast buffet was quite poor. The “fresh” fruit was far from fresh, the coffee tasted like soap and the staff from the restaurant probably didn’t like their job, they all looked moody.

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        I do not know of another hotel where the staff are all so friendly and helpful. It is a great asset and it is this that will keep us coming back.

      • Single
        8.8

        Quiet; beatiful view from room at waterfront; walking distance from London City Airport; near DLR station.

        Furniture in lobby urgently needs new upholstery.

      • Couple
        7.4

        clean and friendly staff, very close to the metro.

      • Family with children
        7.0

        Although the Hotel was situated on the docklands in London it was still easy to get to and close to the local rail line (dlr). As it wasnt a city hotel it was quiet and friendly. Staff were helpful and patient when they had to repeat themselves as I couldnt understand their accents however had the reception staff used better eye contact I would have found it easier to understand. The hotel room was clean and modern and the facilites provided were good. Breakfast was warm and fresh and had a good choice. The hotel also has an Italian restaurant which although I never used this facility the menu looked good and the prices were average.

        The 40 min trip into central London and the lack of eye contact from reception staff.

      • Couple
        8.2

        Lovely hotel, staff where pleasant and helpfull and only 10 mins on the tube from the city

      • Couple
        6.2

        We asked for a non smoking room and we ended up with a smoking room which smelt awful.

      • Older travelers
        4.2

        I booked a room for 2 adults and a child and was given 2 single beds, i complained and they did nothing, regular tv is charged for which is ridiculous, i would have expected more from this hotel. The only positive is its proximity to the Excel centre.

      • Single
        9.6

        Amazingly quiet and interesting location, once City airport closes (which was already at 2100, first flight around 7am.

        Corridors were awkward: cold and loud music.

      • Couple
        3.8

        On the furthest outskirts of the Docklands, this hotel is expensive for what is is. The rooms are dated and in a poor state of repair. The facilities are also dated as is the tate of the decorations. We booked this as a romantic get away and as a base to get in and out of london. In the end the bar was expensive, the dlr was not running (which I know cannot be helped and I shouldve checked first but didnt add to the experience) and we were unimpressed.

      • Older travelers
        6.2

        It was clean and quite basic but ok for the cost for a London weekend. We did not take breakfast so cannot comment on the food. Air conditionning was fine as was the bathroom.

        There were problems with the underground and the dlr on the weekend of our stay. We telephoned the hotel for help with directions and were amazed reception staff could not help us. They did not seem to know where they were! A cab took us there in 10 minutes in the end. The hotel is on the Ecel site but nowhere near anywhere else! We walked from Canning Town and needed cabs to Canary Wharfe. Tourists visiting the west end should book elsewhere!

      • Family with children
        7.4

        I was quit surprised that, the food on the hotel was so good, since some people on the Booked.net site complained about especially breakfast. I can only say, that i was very satisfied with both breakfast, and the great meal I got for dinner one night

        2 things. The fact that i asked for 2 seperate beds and not a kingsize bed, even i know it was only a request, and secondly that the furniture and hotel in generel some places seemed very used, and needed some replacements or modernizing, especially the oval bar, where the cuttum was exposed in the funiture.
