Had no issue with the hotel itself. It was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The staff members were all very helpful and polite. The shower was amazing and really woke me up after such a long journey from the north.
It is very expensive though. You can get a similar room for half the price in Manchester. I know that it's London prices but I thought for the extra money there might be a breakfast or something thrown in. £130 for one night's stay alone is pretty steep. It is also about £5 for a pint.
The other issue we had was its location. It should look as though it is fairly close to the O2. You can actually see the O2 from the front of the hotel, but it is not a walkable distance. You have to get the tube or a taxi to the O2 - both of which are horrendous.
The taxi cost us £20 on the way there and £16 on the way back (?!?!?) and takes about 25 minutes. We should have gotten the tube but I'd been stuck on it all day trying to work out how to get to the hotel from Euston station (took a wrong turn somewhere.....best bet is Euston - Bank - Blackwell and then walk...sadly we found that out way too late) and so thought I'd treat myself thinking that it couldn't be that far away!!!
When we got to the O2 we noticed a Holiday Inn Express only a few minutes' away so I'd be inclined to stop there in the future for things at the O2.
As mentioned, nothing against the hotel itself (apart from the fact that it is very expensive) but it's not really that close to the O2 if you are planning on stopping over for a show.
