Stayed here as I got a good price for a concert at the 02 and was so happy with the choice. The rooms are basic but clean and tidy and have all the little bits you need for a weekend away.
The location was so ideal with the very handy DLR line around the corner. There are also many local shops on the road behind the hotel that are very cheap for anything you could need.
The hotel doesn't have a restaurant as such, but this suited us fine and we were able to order a Dominos to have a little feast in the hotel room.
We were woken up at 4am (as was the rest of the hotel) with the fire alarm after a drunken guest broke the glass, and this was going off for around half an hour, but the staff were really apologetic and tried to resolve the problem as fast as they could.
The free breakfast was fab. Although like others have mentioned there are no bacon, mushroom and beans but there is enough variety for everyone to find something to eat - and after all it is free and who doesn't love a freebie.
The staff were all lovely. We arrived before the check in time hoping to off load our bags in the luggage storage and after a short wait we we're given our room early which was even better! When we we're checking out, the staff let us leave our bags which were kept safe and secure. On our return, we were a couple hours early for the train and the staff allowed us to wait in the lobby and have a few drinks before we had to make our way to the train station.
