“Fantastic”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

On our last trip to London we took the DLR down to Themsen at Docklands. We went in to Crowne Plaza to eat, there we met Jarson wich made our dinner superb. The food was fantastic and the service five star. It´s really great to meet this service.

The hotel is placed just meters away from the Royal Victoria dlr station, making it easy to reach from London City airport. It also means that you can get into London in 40 mins by dlr and tube.
Typical business hotel, good comfort. Reception service was really great! At the floor apparently they were renovating many rooms, as the corridor was crowded of new beds waiting to be positioned.
Only negative comment about breakfast. There was a special offer (10 pounds instead of 18), but quality was really poor.

Very nice hotel located conveniently to ExCel. Close to Royal Victoria station, about 30 min to the city (Victoria Station). Two grocery stores about two min walk. Very friendly and professional staff. Fitness facilities very nice. I also enjoyed breakfast and dinner in the hotel restaurant. Nice room. Very good experience overall, will stay in this hote again.

This hotels is handy if you are going to the ExCel or Canary Wharf otherwise its a little far out from the city. However, Royal Victoria DRL station is only 2 minutes behind the hotel and is one stop up from Canning Town from which you can take the Jubilee into Baker Street in 20 mins. Its also very convenient if flying in/out of London City

Booked on a 2 night business trip because the price was good. Hotel was fine, rooms are a decent size and modern. Breakfast was ok and there is free WiFi. Did not use the restaurant. There are a few places around the ExCel if you want to eat out. none of them particularly good so might be worth going to Stratford or Canary Wharf if you're looking for a decent restaurant in the area

Stayed one night on business.

The hotel has a good ambience, demonstrated on arrival by the friendly staff. If you are driving, the car park is very convenient and, for London, well-priced.

Rooms are as you would expect, appointed to a high standard and spotless.

The bar area is good for a drink, and if the weather is fine, the outdoor area allows al-fresco wining and dining and is well separated from the passing public.

Breakfast was varied - 8/10

If you are staying for several nights, it is suggested that you sample the nearby restaurants. Although only a few, there is good choice, and the Fox Bar shows football and other sports.

Overall, a good hotel. But for two or three service niggles, it would have been given 5 stars. I do expect to return on business, and possibly leisure, in the future.

After two weeks of touring with lots of so so breakfasts, this place stands out. The breakfast had lots of choices and our supper was excellent. The desserts were outstanding. My husband had spiced pears with raspberry sorbet and candied pistachios. I had chocolate truffle with raspberries. The room was spacious and the mattress was very comfortable. The service in the restaurant, both meals, was outstanding service, especially Camellia who waited on us for supper. She made the extra effort to find gluten free bread that had flavor.

Room Tip: We were on the 5th floor and all was quiet.
