Good value hotel convenient for ExCeL and London City Airport
Booked over a year in advance for a three day event at the ExCeL, with three further days for leisure in London.
Location is pretty good for the ExCeL and London City. It's also nice to be a little out of the city centre in that the air is a little more breathable. The room was clean and generally pleasant, but a little lacking in furniture (only three tiny drawers and six hangars). Bed was comfortable. Breakfast (buffet) was generally good, staff generally helpful and public areas pleasant.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that what I had thought was a "room only" booking was in fact B&B, so got to take advantage of the breakfasts. Restaurant and bar prices were "very reasonable for London". The adjacent "Fox at Connaught" pub/hotel was well worth a visit or two.
Travel into London involved a 10 minute walk to the Prince Regent DLR station and typically took about 35-45 minutes. On our last day, having suffered in the heat on the Underground the previous couple of days, we took the DLR to Westferry, which is about a 5 minute walk from the Canarty Wharf pier for the River Bus - an altogether more pleasant way to travel into central London. If you don't mind cable cars you could combine this with a bit of a walk and the "Air Line" cable car over the Thames to the O2. There's a good selection of (mostly chain) restaurants, cinema, etc. at the O2, as well as the main events arena.
The only real negatives: furniture (drawers in particular!) a bit lacking. The air con in the room was ridiculously loud when running (but the room stayed pleasant even with the highest temperatures of the year at about 33-35 C) - I didn't get around to reporting this to reception until we were leaving, so no idea if it was a simple problem they could easily fix (and it clearly wasn't so bad as to be a major problem). The hotel operates a shuttle to Canary Wharf, but weren't prepared to run us 5 minutes round the corner to London City (I can see why they might fear a massive commitment if they did officially run an "Airport Shuttle" though).
Good but my stay was expensive
Great service but i've stayed here before at a bargain price of £69
