Docklands Premier Inn does all the things Premier Inn does well. Clean, well-presented rooms, comfy bed, great breakfast. For staying in London it's a perfect way to get comfortable lodgings without breaking the bank. It's walkable from London City airport (I recommend walking over the bridge rather than under it as it's a bit mugger-friendly under there), and an easy...

Great hotel with very pleasant staff, great location, short walk to the emirates cable cars across the Thames to the O2, short journey on the DLR to tower bridge and tubes into the city, lovely walks along the river, plenty of eateries on the docklands, great place to stay.

Absolutely appalled at the state of the room we were given. The bathroom walls were covered in mould which had obviously been there for some time. Serious health and safety implications. Will not be staying here again.

Hi I'm really concerned to hear about the state of the bathroom. It's completely unacceptable that you were allocated a room in this condition so I've asked the Operations Manager to follow this up with the Housekeeping & Maintenance teams directly. I hope this hasn't put you off staying with us and we see you again soon. Darren

We have used this hotel many many times. It is excellent value for money (we paid £50 a night for the room during half term) and well situated for the DLR into London. The rooms are well kept and exactly what you expect from a Premier Inn; spacious, comfortable, well sound proofed and full of all the necessities. The staff...

I arrived by DLR to the nearest station and was very conscious of the walk along a poorly lit road lined with bushes and litter. The hotel was ok - a bit tired in places... but clearly a very busy location due to its proximity to Excel. Food was ok... lifts can be a bit busy at breakfast time.

Typical Premier Inn. You know what you're getting. Basic, clean, comfy. I always recommend Premier Inns. Nice friendly staff and if needed the bar is open till 1am. Only 5 mins walk from the DLR station.

I was staying at Premier Inn at the beginning of February 2017. I had a room on the 5th floor with the view right to the DLR tracks and London City Airport which was bit annoying due to running trains every 5-7 min and starting and landing planes. Hotel rooms are getting renovated at this moment what you can see...

Stayed here for two nights as we were attending events at the O2. It's easier accessible from here via the tube and being that further bit away not too busy or expensive. Be warned: the train line is very close and the hotel is in the flight path for the City of London airport so can be noisy. Check in...

Great location for the O2 and trips into the city. As usual with premier comfy bed and very clean room. Slightly disappointed with the pre cooked breakfast but at a busy hotel this is probably the norm. Well worth the money and will stay at again when next at the O2.
