The hotel is very similar to other Ibis Budget properties which I have stayed at in various different countries. Although basic, it was functional and very clean. We stayed for one night after attending a gig and used public transport to get to and from Islington, which was pretty straight forward.
There isn't much around the hotel by the way of restaurants, however the Westfield centre at Stratford has plenty of restaurants and can easily be reached via the DLR/tube.
The continental breakfast was again fairly basic but served its purpose, as there are few places around to get breakfast so eating in the hotel in the morning allows you to get off to a quick start in the morning.
The DLR station is around a ten minute walk away along a pleasant path lined with trees and plants, the area seemed safe to us even late at night as we were returning from the gig.
The noise from the planes wasn't a problem with the window closed, however as it was a very warm night we left the window open and as a result we were woken up early by the flights which were taking off which were very noisy.
Overall, whilst this hotel is by no means luxurious or somewhere to be considered as a romantic retreat, it served its function as the cheapest hotel in the city and it was very clean.
