    Staff gave me a little birthday surprise by decorating my room and giving me lovely pastries! They went above and beyond to make the whole checkin in process as swift and as comfortable as possible. Even received a cute bag of posh corn with my room service! Hats off to the staff at this hotel, I’ll definitely be back.

    Not having a fridge sucks but wasn’t a deal breaker

    Liked the value for the stay.

    The reception was annoying. They could not find my luggage. Also was very rude when checking in. I asked for adjoining rooms beforehand and spoke to the hotel. The reception was like if you told us ahead of time then we can do it. But I did and she was very rude about it.

    They are under new management and not as nice and effective as the old management team. Bottle of water placed in room costs 3 pounds each if you are not a good customer when before you would get it for free not a very please try welcome.

    It was near the emirates cable where my best friend, my god daughter and I get the chance to explore the O2 arena.

    The hotel is a bit far from the city proper of London.
