The hotel is obviously dated, with antiquated furnishing. The bed kind of felt like a table (single room) with its height, width and very unstable legs. The two beds placed side by side kept rolling apart! I ended up managing to lie on just one of them which was then not big enough and took away the comfortable hotel feeling with enough bed for you. Cleanliness was very okay. Sadly, there was also no fridge in the room. Internet was okay sometimes and extremely bad sometimes. I would stay here again if I had to but for the price I paid, I definitely expected much more luxury.

Much more old fashioned than you might expect for such an up beat part of London. Room decor very old fashioned with lots I dark wood furniture and prints in the walls. Starting to look a bit shabby. Beds small but comfortable and air con a god send although a bit noisy. Overall not too bad but did expect more.

Location: Though Canary Wharf, the hotel location is pathetic
Restaurant: Stuck at 1999, the ambience just leaves a bad taste
Food: Breakfast is complimentary, and the hotel makes it a point you know that, enough said.
Rooms: Boring and badly needs refurbishment. Its window glass are golden yellow tinted "Seriously that is sick", kept the curtains closed throughout my stay.
Service and Reception: Good, similar to what you expect from a decent hotel.
Staff: Friendly and willing to help. Though there is not much they can help you with if all rooms are equally bad.

Room Tip: Lower your expectations if you are staying here. Don't eat at this hotel, you have zillion choic...

We wanted to stay over night for a last minute trip into London. We wanted relatively easy access to the West End so we could she a show. So on the day before our trip we searched the Internet for somewhere to stay and found this hotel. We only needed a room for one night so as the price was reasonable decided to book. Then we read the reviews, some of which were uncomplimentary. Oh well it was only for one night!.
When we got to the room (on the 4th floor) I can say we were expecting the worst, but were pleasantly surprised. OK the room looked like it was papered in the 80s and just a bit tired, But it was spacious and clean with a twin and a 3rd bed. The only down side was that the outlook was over a building site, which looked pretty dormant. We had a nice stay.

Room Tip: Ask to not over look the building site. It would also cut down on the sound of the DLR railway, thou...

The Britannia International has nice and clean rooms with everything you need for a short stay. Canary Wharf is a beautiful location with good amenities and great views of some of London's most popular landmarks.

The room looked old and worn, but it was clean. Our view was to a buliding site, so not very exiting. The staff was pretty indifferent, looked bored and unhappy, no smiles what so ever. The breakfast was bland and not very good. It is an hour away from piccadilly circus tube station and in an expensive area. The spa area of the hotel is really nice.

The overview of the property should include:
Amenities may be subject to change including the AC.
Or
Pick your perk: AC or no AC

Did I mention the AC challenges???

On a side note, when addressed with the hotel staff, we received the response: "There is nothing we can do. We are full so we are unable to move you to another room."
Please note, 3 different front desk agents said the very same thing...rehearsed???

Come on guys, get it right!!!
