Stayed here with my girlfriend for one night as we were going to a gig at the O2 academy and this hotel seemed to have good reviews.
The reviews were justified as the O2 you can literally see out the hotel room windows and is probably between 100-200m from the hotel. The bullring is less than a 5 minute walk away aswell.
The room itself was good and had a comfortable bed and decent sized flat screen TV....although it didn't seem to want to turn off and kept turning itself back on so ended up pulling the plug out the wall!
Bathroom was clean and I'm pretty sure it had a heated floor aswell....or at least it seemed it did.
The breakfast was nice, was served drinks very quickly and the staff were friendly.
The only downside to the hotel was its right next to a busy road so there is a fair bit of road noise at night and this is the only thing that has stopped me rating the hotel as "excellent". Overall had a good stay and would consider staying there again!
