Conveniently located, good value for money

The hotel is located very close to the London City Airport and close to the Dockland Light Railway, which makes it it convenient even though it is a way from the centre of London. Centre of London can be reached inside of 45 minutes by public transportation. It is located right next to the Excel exhibition center and there is a cable car nearby connecting to the O2. The choice of restaurants in the area is rather limited though. The hotel is ok, only negative issue is that the toilet is seperated from the bath and handwash basin.

Concert at the O2 arena

This hotel was great for going to the O2. Only a couple of stops on the DLR to Victoria station from London City airport and a 2 min walk to hotel or £16 in a taxi. It was also only a couple of stops on the DLR to the stop for the O2. If you want to go into the city centre you can transfer to the underground and you are there in a couple of minutes. The hotel is clean, modern and friendly staff. We had a suite as there was 3 of us, but one of the beds was a pull out sofa,( which might not suit some) but it was ok for us as our daughter slept in the Hugh bed in the bedroom which was separate from the sitting room section of the suite. In the suite it had 2 tv's, 2 Bose docking stations, nespresso coffee machine and tea/coffee facilities. I didn't eat any food in the hotel so I can't comment on that, but all the bar staff were friendly. I would recommend this hotel if you were visiting London and it's even better if you are going to the O2 or flying into London City airport and would say here again.

Good quiet location, close to emirates cable car, just £4.50 across to Grenwich and short walk to the train station. Breakfast expensive at £15.95 walk across the road to the cafe and its only £4.95. Staff friendly and allowed early check in

Pros: guter Service, Reservation hat bestens geklappt
Location: Nähe Docklands, O2-Arena und London-City Airport; für die bekannten Tourismus-Attraktionen ist ein U-Bahn-Fahrt unerlässlich
guter Mittelklasse-Standard, etwas dezentral, aber verkehrstechnisch ok. Zimmer i.O., Personal freundlich und hilfreich. Leider wurden uns beim letzten Abendessen verdorbene Crevetten serviert (Surf & Turf), so dass über Nacht heftiger Durchfall eintrat und nach der Heimkehr ein Besuch beim Arzt nötig war. Darf in einem Hotel dieser Klasse nicht passieren.

Gutes Seminarhotel

Wir waren sehr zufrieden mit dem Hotel. Hat alles wunderbar geklappt. Es ist nahe an der Eventhalle und somit ideal. Der Bahnhof ist auch in der Nähe (3 Min. zu Fuss). Wir konnten auch schon ab 08:00 Uhr einchecken und danach die Stadt besichtigen.
