Very good hotel clean and good value for money.Excellent base for exploring London the DLR is two mintues down the road you can get to central London within 30 minutes.Yes I agree the rooms are very warm overnight but the hotel do provide a fan to cool things down.Admittedly this is not the Ritz but you are not paying Ritz prices this is a good value hotel with good staff good location would definitely recommend.

I knew what I was booking when I booked. All I wanted was a cheap hotel room close to the Excel where i was attending a convention so I booked in September last year when prices were at their cheapest. My cunning plan worked out well. It was a place to sleep, what more could I need?

Air conditioning would be very useful, that's what was needed. Who in their right minds builds a hotel these days without AC? So I had to keep the window open and the fan which they provided on all night. I have to say that the 7.00am alarm call via London City airport was most effective.

Me and two mates booked a three bedroom room after we saw a UFC event at the O2. We paid £18 pp for the night and it is worth the money. Its a great location as its a tube stop away and has plenty of car parking space out front.

The beds are very comfy and you get a large room for the money that you pay.

If we go back for another event, we will definitely book the excel Travelodge again.

This is a cheap hotel by London Standards, seven days for less than 600 quid. The hotel is cheap as in, small room, tiny bath, didn't change the sheets for a week, no soap, no phones, no AC, bad food, and nothing good to eat in the immediate area. It is about a 10 min walk to the Excel center and a five minute walk from the Docklands Light Rail station from which you can go just about anyplace in London. The good news, it is cheap to stay and the staff was very helpful. Allow yourself plenty of time to get to Heathrow by cab (took me 2 hours).

Room Tip: You are next to London City airport, it is nosy all over

Modern, clean hotel, free parking, excellent efficient staff.
Rooms too warm, but that's a design issue, fan in room.
Breakfast is basic but okay.
Perfect for staying at ExCEL which is only 600yds away

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...
