Hotel that could be your second home”

I want to say "thank you" to the all teams in this hotel. I very glad that I spent time with Inn Holiday family. Also I want to say personal thanks to: Victoria To the all kitchen staff: Paula, Susan, Aminata that cooked always very tasty breakfast and my morning started with the smile. To reception guys: Zanas, Roxana, Murli, Mohamed, Rebecca that always met me with the smile and solve any issues during my long stay. Also I sure the night team were also good, but I was sleeping at that time. But the sleep was the best, so I could say also that were professionals. Thanks a lot for comfortable stay. And see you again. Cheers

Good city access, clean no frills accommodation at reasonable rates, especially for London”

Convenient for access to city via DLR but let down by maintenance shut down with replacement bus service running . Can take 30-40 mins to get to city centre which is fine if you’re leaving early and coming back at end of day but could be burdensome in other circumstances unless you are staying for access to O2, City Airport or Canary Wharf 👍 Airport very close and place noise loud but only starts after 7:30-8am and not late at night. Overall cost value was the right choice for us for 3 night visit to City highlights .... would have been better if DLR (scheduled?) Maintenance didn’t add time to our commute.

The room was clean and comfortable, even though we could not get any cable or satellite channels on the TV. The location was very good, being about a 5 minute walk to the overground train station leading to London Bridge. Often there were planes flying overhead due to the proximity of the airport, but we didn't notice that in our room.

Great hotel if you are going to Excel Convention”

Cleanliness, Location, Comfort

As always, I've enjoyed my stay here. I was attending a conference at Excel and it is walking distance to the Excel. If you don't want to walk, it is just one stop on the DLR line to the convention center. The hotel is just 2 minutes from the DLR station. So it is easy to hope on and get to town. It would have been nice if there was a fitness center. However, one has the option to go running by the river thames just 1 minutes from the hotel or use the nearby Regata center gym. It was only 5 pounds per entry or 15 pounds for a week.

This hotel is out of central London but with very good public transport connections. The room was large and had - bizarrely but nicely - a massive wet room/disabled bathroom. The bed was comfy and the room was basically clean if not spotless. Good blackout curtains too. The down side was that the food and drink options were limited. Vending machines were available but no coffee shop of all day restaurant. Just 'meal hours'.

When I asked the housekeeping staff if I could borrow an iron and ironing board, they said they didn't understand. In the end, I had to go to the reception to ask. When I was in the room in the evening, the staff (checking whether my room was cleaned) just unlocked and opened my room door after only knocking twice on the door without waiting for my response. I find this gesture to be rather rude because what if I was changing in the room!
