    Beautiful spacious and clean room, good beds. Right next to the DLR station custom house for Excel. Short walk (5 minutes) to the Emirates cable car. Bathroom was also beautiful and for London standards very spacious. Nice breakfast. The evening meal at the restaurant and the stone oven pizzas they deliver to the room also looked delicious. Staff was friendly and helpful. Have to go to London again this year and will definitely stay here again.

    From London Heathrow it's quite long before you get there. From London City you're there very quickly. Please note: from December 2018 the Elisabeth line will run and then you are within 45 minutes of Heathrow at the hotel.

    Fabulous

    Great location opposite Excel and near the dlr station; very comfortable bed; well-equipped room; excellent shower and bath; friendly, helpful staff.

    When I opened the window there was quite a lot of noise outside (including from the planes going to City Airport). Breakfast was expensive so I didn't have it. I'd have preferred a pool to a gym/sauna.

    It was a great location for the Excel and very comfortable with good facilities in both the room and the hotel as a whole.

    The hotel is new and has good rooms and generally impressive standards. Breakfast was excellent. Location is good in that the redeveloped dock area is attractive, and very convenient for the O2.

    Not good for convenience to the West End. Broadband / films is expensive at £19.50.

    The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Our room was very clean and had both a shower and a bath. The hotel was very convenient as we were attending and event at Excel.

    We thought that the breakfast at nearly £16.00 for a continental breakfast and nearly £19.00 for a cooked breakfast was very overpriced.

    The hotel was convientley situated, it was very clean,, pleasant stay.

    I have to say that I thought we had booked a superior room but did not look or feel like one. I have paid less for a much superior room. The food at breakfast was good but the evening buffet was a let down, the food was lukewarm as it was only kept uinder heated lights, has better in a all inclusive package hotel, so this was very disappointing, would I eat there again, no way.

    Superb

    It was very quiet at night so we had an excellent sleep.

    Our room faced into the centre of the complex so it was a bit dark with an uninteresting view. Some rooms overlooked the docked and enjoyed the sunshine.

    Good

    In general it is the best one in the 3 hotels within walking distance to the Excel Dockland.

    House keeping is lazy and not professional. The first day I felt my cosmetic was touched and cream was all over the tube, the other day as we left from the room at 13:00 not in the morning, there was no house keeping at all for that day.
