Good hotel with great staff service, Free Wifi and fast speed of internet, hotel location is good to reach famous sites via underground. The hotel room is clean and comfortable, with elegant furniture. Nearby underground and DLR station, but you might be disturbed by the slight noise from DLR train.

Nice stay in London

We were not there for all nights because my husband was admitted to hospital. Therefore cannot review all aspects of hotel. Wi-Fi - I failed to obtain correct password - again due to being overwhelmed with heath problems.

Wouldn't recommend

First walk into hotel couldn't find my booking, finally get a room and it smells old. Not fresh at all. Get disturbed in the morning by the cleaner 3 times between 9-10.30.. Checkout is 11am! Made me get out of bed at 9 first time to see who's at the door knocking. Walked in on me whilst half asleep, then unlocks the door without knocking and walks in on me getting dressed. Appalling. Disrespectful, rude, no privacy what so ever. I'd rather pay my money to a travelodge or premier inn that's a lot cheaper but much nicer and fresher! With respectful staff and cleaners!!!

Great 1 night stay

Only stayed one night, but it was good value for the money and close to where I needed to be! Was in London for the Doctor Who 50th. Short walk from the hotel to the DLR which went right to Xcel. Nice courteous staff. They had overbooked the specific room I requested with a large bed, but they upgraded me to a nicer room with a smaller bed, which was fine, since it was just me! After the flight from Denver, CO with connection in Iceland before getting to London and then the tube ride over to Canary Warf, the tea kettle and tea in the room were so nice! I wish hotels over here would do that. The kettle is where it's at, (not a 1 serving coffee pot...coffee is gross!) haha! What I really wished I would have had time for, but as I only stayed the one night and was really jet lagged, was to try the Indian restaurant there, it smelled and looked so good! Totally blanking on the name of it! But as it was, on my walk to the hotel I passed through a shopping center which had everything, and just nipped into a Boots and got a sandwich to take with me to eat in my room. So nice proximity to a shopping center as well! Had a nice stay! Would definitely stay again, if I ever needed to be out that way again!

Never again

This is a really tired hotel. My room had a dirty carpet, holes in the lampshades, etc. I didn't trust the teapot enough to make a cup of tea. I left as soon as I possibly could and had breakfast somewhere else. I won't be returning.

Perfect if you don't need wifi

I stayed two nights on vacation. Clearly this was a very nice hotel at some time in the past. Although clean, it shows ita age in the dings in the furnitire, the peeling wallpaper and mold in the bath, and multiple other signs. Again, not a bad hotel, just tired. I would recommend it and say it was a good value, but for one flaw. THE FREE WIFI IS PRETTY MUCH USELESS! As an international traveller, this was my planned communication link to my family. I could occasionally get signal in my room and in the lobby during the day. Connecting at night was impossible. By sitting in the elevator lobby of the 4th floor at 1am, and rebooting my computer, I was able to obtain almost 5 minutes worth of connectivity sufficient to read email. Not stream video. Not VOIP. Just barely enough to check email. And it didn't last. It was clear that their wifi infrastructure was operating far beyond it's capacity. So if you don't need connectivity, the location and price make this a great deal. Otherwise, I'd suggest making other arrangements.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Go out the back door(diagonally across from the front desk), across the footbridge, and through the Mozzerella Bar to reach Canary Wharf Underground station in under 10 minutes.

Aweful! Don't even bother

Don't waste your time even considering this hotel. I booked into a single room and was told by the concierge that the single rooms were too small and offered a family room. I did not care really and went up to my room which looked average. Tried turning on the air con cos it was 29 degrees in the room then a blower came on from one single vent (note there were 2 vents and only one worked). It was supposed to be an Air Con but only blew air which was barely sufficient to keep a fly cool. I was up all night until 4AM trying to sleep but just couldn't because I was literally sweating. Staff came up to the room and only apologised. Next morning followed up on the complaint with the duty manager but couldn't offer me any compensation for pre-booking the room. Left my details with the front Office mngr names "WYN" she's just disappointing - never called me back and had to chase her. She shouldn't even work in hospitality cos she doesn't understand customer service. Her response was "I'm sorry i can only offer you a 10% compensation as you pre-booked online and was very pleased to give me an email address where I can raise my complaint". I paid 89 quid for the room for a night where I wasn't even given the basics of what a hotel should provide. POOR EXPERIENCE AND POOR STAFF WITH NO DECENCY. Don't waste your time and book yourself into the Hilt*** or N***tel where the standards are much much higher.
