“Great place to stay before an early flight”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

London City Airport is not the easiest of places to get to from some parts of the the South so I was glad to arrive after a 2.5 hour journey.

You can see the Travel Lodge from the DLR which you need to remember in the morning when you throw the curtains open and see the startled faces of the poor passengers seeing you in your nightie if you are on that side of the hotel..........

At certain times - the taxi drivers at the airport will not take the fare as it is a short journey for them so it is 10 - 15 minutes walk along a busy road - in the rain it is not ideal. Easy enough to find but I would not have liked to walk that route in the dark

Only one person on reception and a few checking in at the same time so check in took 10
minutes by the time it was my turn.

Once checked in - all good - room was very clean and comfortable, good shower, enough towels.
The hotel was very busy but they have the soundproofing just right and it was very quiet during the night.

We ate in the bar/cafe. Food was fine and decent service - staff are lovely and very helpful and it is not the Ritz!

We were able to book a taxi for the morning so overall it is a great, clean and cost effective place to stay for easy access to City Airport.

Room Tip: Rooms are either facing the DLR line (it is very close!) which seem to be even numbers and rooms on...

Me and the wife stayed there for one night in May prior to an early morning flight.

Catch a taxi from the train station which is in the airport if you have luggage.Otherwise it's a good 10-15 minute walk to the hotel.

Check in was quick and all staff were polite.

Our en suite room was really clean,which we appreciate but there was no air conditioning fitted.But I was immediately supplied with a portable desk fan,with no cost.

There is a small bar in the restaurant and our evening meal was fine.

The receptionist pre-booked an early morning taxi for us and overall,this budget hotel was fine.We have stayed in more expensive 4&5 star hotels which were not as clean as this Travelodge.

Well done to all staff concerned.

I have one gripe though.The gentlemans toilet just by recption was in a mess on the evening that I used it.There were several hand sized pieces of wet toilet paper on the floor of the toilet.

Which is such a shame as our room,the reception,the bar area & restaurant were all very clean.

Room Tip: The front of the hotel faces the airport which is about 200 yards away,while the rear faces the trai...

I stayed 5 nights in room 209 (at the front overlooking the airport - rooms at the back overlook the DLR rapid transit system)

In terms of location, it is excellent for LCY airport -perhaps a brisk 10minute walk with cabin baggage. I would not want to be wheeling cases - there are major roads to cross but if you are reasonably mobile it is not an issue. The DLR stops at LCY and also at the slightly closer PONTOON DOCK station.

In terms of access to central London, I was at South Kensington tube station less than 1 hour from leaving the hotel (it is in zone 3 on the tube network), so i would say it's location is not that bad and as such represents good value for money.

The room was clean and exactly as expected, except I thought rooms had a/c - wrong. It was warm when I stayed and having the window open me and a lot of aircraft noise (not unexpected for an airport hotel which is why I was expecting a/c).

Shampoo and soap were provided and I would say the shower was functional rather than powerful - but it worked, was clean and there was plenty of hot water.

Breakfast was a standard buffet - scrambled eggs, grilled tomato, baked beans, unsmoked back bacon (very thin - but you just have more slices) and what were very acceptable sausages. All was hot and continuously replenished. Continental options included the usual croissants and muffins, yoghurts, toast (jam, honey, nutella etc) and tinned fruits. Juice was from a dispenser and there were 2 coffee machines.

Slightly annoying having sky news blaring in the food area but you sooner tune out of it.

There is a bar and food service in the evening which I did not use - but for the duration of my stay the bar had no ice.

The stall were all cheery and helpful. I found the hotel clean and what I expected - I have no major grumbles (save the ice and no a/c), but at the price I paid, I cannot really complain and would probably stay again.

Stayed here for just one night before a flight, paid just over £40 for two of us, as had booked in advance, this represent great value for a hotel so close to London city airport,as only approx 10mins walk away. Room great size, very clean, large comfy bed and great double glazing that you need given proximity to runway! There is not much around area close to hotel so would recommend you eat in if staying overnight for a flight,small bar /lounge area. Only criticism is no facility to set an alarm on TV or phone as no phone in room, when I asked at reception if I could have early morning call I was just told we don't do those, and yet was advised 24 hour reception, would use again if flying from this airport again, great value, pleasant staff

We stayed only a night as we have an early flight to catch the next day.

Hotel is about 10mins walk away from the station, however it should not be a problem for people with luggages as its a straight and flat road ahead from the station (we had our bagpacks).
Staffs are polite and friendly. We had our meal vouchers and the food were decent.

Room is pretty huge and comes with basic amenities, great value!

We stayed here for 3 nights over a weekend, good points are it's location, ideal for getting into Central London by DLR and tube or a short drive into the east end for a curry, staff were also very helpful and polite. Hotel itself rather tired and the room we had on the 4th floor had a strong smell of damp not sure if this was an issue from the bathroom. Wouldn't rush to stay here again but equally it's not that bad!

Room Tip: Not the 4th floor

We stayed at the London City Airport Travel Lodge as it was within walking distance of ExCel Exhibition Centre and 10mins walk max from airport (we weren't disturbed by noise from airplanes). Very clean, simple but warm. Staff extremely helpful and friendly. Would recommend to anyone - Aisha at the reception, Lambrini in the breakfast team, all very helpful, professional and polite. Will use again!
