“Great Staff, but...”
Reviewed 18 August 2014 via mobile

Stayed in this hotel while attending a convention at the ExCel Centre.

Pros:
Nice modern rooms
Close to the ExCel (less than 10 minute walk).
Friendly staff.
Average budget buffet breakfast.

Cons:
EXTREMELY hot room with no AC. The fan provided in room was ineffective at improving this.
Noise from London City Airport, numerous building work and the DLR.

I would recommend this as a budget hotel provided you are okay with intrusive noise and extremely warm rooms. Otherwise I would avoid...

Stayed here to take part in ride100... Pay for what you get. Room is standard travel lodge decor, rooms are small but to be honest we weren't in the room much. Bathroom is teeny tiny but was clean.
Reception staff lovely. You can hear the dlr and planes but nothing major. The hotel was noisy from about 5am but purely because cyclists getting in and out the rooms and setting off to the event... You accept that though due to the size and scale of the event!
The room was vvvv hot that was the only drawback. Free parking was offered which I thought was really good for London!

Recently stayed here for 2 nights.
Seemed to be very much cheap than other hotels and also other travelodges.
Great location 1 minute walk from the dlr tube station.
Arrived to very welcoming reception staff also very helpful with my questions via to checking in and throughout my stay seemed nothing was too much for them. However as we walked to our room and put the card through walked in to find the room had not been done. We could have waited 10 mins but having gone back to the reception checked in to another room in the hotel.
It's very close to the city airport infact one can even see the planes taking off from the runway not from our room though but family rooms seem to have this privilege. Although our view was very good could see the tube line. Of which had frequent trains every couple of minutes. it was a quiet place regardless of the airport and tube line. Once the windows are shut it's hard to hear anything at all. I was very surprised by this.
Both nights had great nights sleep.
Breakfast and other meals available but we had neither,always there seemed to be people at the bar or in the restaurant though .
Great hotel great view great price great staff (at the end of the day it's a travelodge not.the savoy)

Visited Hotel to complete London Triathlon 2014, various road closures due to event but no prior hotel info to guide you there through 'other' access road, on arrival we had to park elsewhere (paid) as we couldn't get into hotel car park due to roads and walked bike and 6 wk old baby to hotel. On arrival receptionist did not know how we could get car to hotel, so due to bike storage needed we had to Pay for early check-in. Made a brew in warm room and milk had gone off in cartons. Poor sized room, Hot when weather warm, staff seem uninterested, got given free evening meal that wasn't worth free! Luke warm, felt like it had been hanging around kitchen waiting for someone to order it! Walked over to neighbouring hotel after Triathlon, other hotels seemed much nicer with nicer staff so ate and drank there on second night instead!! Will not return to this hotel, regardless of cost.

Just back from a week at the Excel Travelodge, London. It's perfect for a cheap hotel room. Great shower, fab. all you can eat breakfast, just 4 minutes walk from Prince Albert DLR. Food is available 24/7 in the bar.( pizzas, burgers and lovely cesar salads). Free juice, teas and coffees all day long. The staff were cheerful and very helpful. The hotel itself is very quite and the noise from the nearby DLR, highway and airport is not intrusive. Rooms are clean and not too small. Rooms are hot, but fans are provided. We recommend you leave the curtains closed all day and use only the duvet covers in hot weather. Also get a room with a northern/western orientation. We will use this hotel again if we are in London. It's not the SAVOY but you're not paying SAVOY prices.
You looking for somewhere clean, cheap, near a tube station, where you can get a good night's
sleep and nice breakfast? This is it!
BTW...We booked via OTEL.com. It only advertised continental breakfast..so we were pleasantly surprised with the fare on offer.

Room Tip: Look for a northern/western room.
