Stayed for 3 nights for our London stay. Have to say was not expecting a hotel of this kind of quality when I was booking or when we were getting to the hotel. The hotel itself is brand new, the rooms were spectacularly clean and the staff was very friendly. They even had our Eurail passes received for us upon request. The bar is cozy and cheerful and there is a complimentary swimming pool and a gym. The rooms had good WiFi.
However, the location is horrible if you are visiting London by Heathrow, Gatwick, or taking the Eurostar. Takes less than an hour from Victoria station and is at zone 3 in the London underground map. It's connected to the Prince Regent DLR station so it's very convenient to access the DLR but you have to make a transfer to the Underground. The hotel itself is right next to London Excel, but the nearest restaurants a 15 minute walk around the Excel. You probably wanna take the DLR to Royal Victoria DLR station.
This is the best hotel you can probably sleep in for this kind of money, recommended for value, good rooms, but not for location.
