The area is run down,but good links to the city,the dlr an tube is minuites away. Found the staff helpful,especially the guys on the evening shift. All staff i encountered were good. Room comfy an quiet,its reasonable for London,especially if going to the O2.

This is our third stay due to its ideal location for the O2. It's opposite Canning Street DLR / tube and only one stop from the venue. Parking on site at hotel at £10 for 24 hours. Basic clean rooms and friendly staff. Thanks to the breakfast server for providing a GF loaf on request.

Absolute Nightmare!! I went to stay in the Holiday inn Express - Royal Docks on 4th March for 1 night. it's location was good and the rooms were okay, however what is an absolute disgrace is that they have taken pre-authorisation from my bank 3 TIMES... which means £777 instead of the £259 it should have been! This means that...
