"Star trek weekend!"
We stayed for 2 nights over the Destination Star Trek weekend. Had a great weekend. The hotel put on Star Trek themed menu in the Pub. Staff were helpful when the room keys didnt work 1st time. The hotel was only a short walk from the Excel which was ideal for our needs. Would stay here again and would recommend it as a place to stay when visiting the […] Excel area.

"Convenient for Excel"
The room was small but clean and a very short walk from the DLR and the excel. There was a lot of noise from outside so it wasnt easy to sleep.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A couple of days in London"
We stayed in this hotel for two nights. We choose it because we could drive and park here and the DRL was very close. The bar and food was very reasonably priced and breakfast was included in the price of the room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Last minute booking to go to O2"
We got the hotel at reasonable rate and we were pleased with the standard .Value for for moneyGenuine Expedia guest review
"Be wary of what is happening in the area."
Location is currently compromised by the work for the Crossrail system. It appears this has changed the whole ambiance of what could have been a good area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Does what it says on the tin. Difficult to fault, close to DLR, spotless room, great breakfastGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very pleased with hotel, a bit far out but for price we paid was excellent. Breakfast was very good and well presented and all staff I came into contact with were very helpful. I would stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"happy with stay"
clean rooms. hotel facilities good. friendly and helpful staff. great breakfast. super convenient access to docklands light rail station (just across the road) which makes it easy to take the "Tube" into central london,Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff very welcoming and friendly, quick to offer an alternative when they realised that our special request made via our hotels.com booking had not been forwarded to them. Breakfast was copious, room was quiet enough despite the proximity of London City Airport, and the beds were comfortable, making for a good night's sleep for a GAMSAT candidate the […] night before the big test! We found the price a bit high but are not really familiar with London area prices so can't say if it was overly so. All in all, a good place to stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Breakfast and Dinner excellent also."
Good value for money and an excellent hotel for an overnight stay. Close to Greenwich and only a roads width from the DLR railway.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great value for money"
Totally unfaultable,great location for transport links,and for the o2Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed on 5th floor (room 505). Spacious room and the bed and heating were fine. However, thin walls as I could hear other people. The finishing on some items (such as the mirror) were peeling off and the rusting at the base of the shower. The shower took a while to heat up, but the controls are fine. Walking on floor 5 was cramped because it's the […] slanted roof. The breakfast was fine, though the selection of fruits changed some days. The pub linked to next door was ok, but not great (I ordered a pie where the outside was hot, but the meat in the middle was cold (funnily enough it was cooked!?). Overall a budget hotel. You get what you pay for, though overpriced in my opinion. I'd stay again only because of the close proximity to the station. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Helpfull friendly staff"
This was my first visit to an Ibis Styles and was not sure what to expect. We were initially given keys for a twin room right next to the lifts. When I went to reception to ask if we could move somewhere quieter I was very impressed. Vanessa checked and found 2 other twin rooms and offered to show me them so i could decide which one was best. I thought […] this was great service, as it was a Saturday night and hotel seemed quite busy. Positives for this hotel: Comfy beds, very clean, OK breakfast, and free Wifi. Negatives: Bathrooms are very small, I had to shower with the shower door open. Window blind on our room was a bit too short for the window and the AC in our room was a bit temperamental (worked 1 night did not work the next) Pub next door shuts at 11 so no chance of a late drink ;-(. These are only minor issues and I would consider staying at the Ibis again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice quiet hotel"
We stayed in the ibis styles excel for one night in August. First , getting to the hotel seemed a bit far but actually wasn't that bad, your saving a lot of money by staying just outside the centre of London and the extra travel was worth it. The views on the way were pretty good. And from kings cross to custom house (the nearest station) only cost […] £2.70 with an Oyster card. We checked in with little fuss. The amenities at the hotel seemed plentiful, they had a rather nice lounge area with a tv, a pub, a cafe/restaurant, drinks and snacks from reception and a vendor for anything you had forgotten: toothbrush, toothpaste etc. True that the hallways look a bit dated however when we got to the room it was well decorated and presented. I was happy to find that I had finally found an English hotel with working aircon... It was August so could have got rather hot. Also it was really nice that we could have the windows open at night and not be up all night with the noise of Central London. We didn't even really notice the noise of the nearby airport. Although being a plane geek I guess it wouldn't have mattered anyway. Breakfast was included in my stay and the breakfast room was found on the 1st floor, and there was plenty to choose from. Cereals, breads, cold meats, cheeses, yoghurts, full English, juices, coffee tea and other hot drinks. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location on Docklands next to waterfront"
This hotel is in a great location on the waters edge next to the excell arena. Carpark shared with Novatel next door, £16 for 24hrs. Dog friendly clean hotel with excellent breakfast. Good hotel for London Triathlon and they allow bikes in your room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great budget hotel"
Great location for our stay - attending the London Triathlon at the ExCel arena. It was only a short walk to the arena. The hotel was clean and well kept and had everything you would need for a short break, not sure if you would want to stay for more than a couple of nights though. We had dinner in the restaurant and found the food to be of a good standard. […] However, the breakfast was a little disappointing, with the food being undercooked and juices being a little too artificial. Would recommend for a short break.

"good basic hotel"
Hotel.com states 302 air conditioned rooms, not true, hotel does not promote it self as air conditioning as only half of rooms have it!!!.Needless to say our room did not have air con, but was part of reason for booking it over others. The room it self was basic, but for a one night stay was ok, breakfast was good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Very basic hotel.the room was quite claustrophobic.no air conditioning.tiny bathroom.Genuine Expedia guest review
"business trip to beckton"
i usually stay at the premier inn ay beckton, but their prices are too high. Tried this hotel as its easy to travel to beckton on the dlr. The price of this hotel was nearly £50 cheaper, and to the same standard as the premier inn. It was vey busy here with young people or students and holiday makers, especially at breakfast time. The on site cafe/restaraunt […] served excellent food and the staff were very friendly. The in site pub eas also good serving very cheap pub food. The only downside with my stay was that it was so hot in the standard double room. I had the window open all the time but the noise from the adjacent building work was a nuisance. The hotel should perhaps provide the rooms with a fan. Other than that cheap and very cheerful. I have booked again for my next business trip in August. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great 2 night stay"
Easy walking distance for Excel and DLR very handy stayed when it was over 30 degrees in London so pretty hot as no air con in the room but hey how often does the Bristish weather get that hot! Great buffet breakfast excellent value, very good staff at the Ibis easy check in.Genuine Expedia guest review
"You get what you pay for"
I booked this hotel at short notice when I realised that a function I was due to attend would end too late in the evening for me to get home. This hotel was conveniently located for the Excel Centre, and as I only really needed a bed for the night, I thought a budget hotel would be adequate, rather than the 4 stars I would normally book. I guess that's […] the best way to describe it - it was very basic - a small room with a fairly comfortable bed and a miniscule shower room/toilet, but that's budget hotels for you. There are two Ibis Hotels at the Excel Centre and this one is by Custom House DLR. There is a major construction project going on right outside the hotel at the moment and while this didn't cause any noise problems, I didn't feel very comfortable walking back to the hotel late at night and it felt a bit more like a hostel than a hotel as there were a number of students sitting on the corridor floors outside the rooms. The other Ibis is much more convenient for the Excel and if I have to do this again, I'll pay a bit extra and stay at the Novotel. Mind you, I nearly ended paying quite a lot for my room as the receptionist insisted my room was pay on departure and charged my credit card when infact I had prepaid, but I did manage to get a refund after I complained.

"Will be great when Crossrail is done"
This hotel will be great once the Crossrail works opposite are finished. Reasonably price, right by the DLR station and an easy run into central London, to Canary Wharf or to Stratford. London City Airport is only a few stops away (even with the change at Canning Town). Excel is over the road and O2 a short hop across the Thames. Right now, though, […] there's a slightly dodgy detour through the back of the shops to the station. One tiny niggle - the capsule bathrooms in Ibis are fine, when they have a glass shower screen. This one had a very British shower curtain which constantly clung to me. Icky! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Convenient location friendly and clean"
Rooms in need of a freshen up but okay for 1 night clean and very handy for the 02 ectGenuine Expedia guest review
Great Breakfast, clean & comfortable rooms, bathroom on the snug side but fine. Excellent location for the DLR although views not brilliant due to lots of construction taking place on the DLR. Will be fantastic when finished.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I have very mixed feelings about this hotel. Firstly, the hotel was in a great position for ths DLR so getting about in London wasn't hard no too expensive as we were in a certain number region. Other nearer hotels are more expensive and it makes little difference on travel. At the time of my stay there were quite a few building works going on so I […] have no comment on the area as it wasn't appealing to explore at the time. The hotel it's self was in decent condition but not as fun and modern as the pictures would have you believe. I found the furniture and decore to be a little cheap. It is very basic so good for people who only just want to sleep and spend little time there! The cleaners were fantastic, the receptionists were not. Most of the time they did not care for you and seemed to lack skill at their jobs. The bed was firm and a little uneasy to sleep on sometimes. The breakfast was not exciting but I was told it was good from my friends. The staff had already removed the food half an hour before the breakfast is meant to shut for myself. Overall you don't get a lot for your money but you do get a very clean and safe place to rest your head. I may even return again when on a budget! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Booked the hotel for it was close to O2 for a show. Managed to get confused with another Ibis hotel just down road but staff were helpful to point me to correct hotel. Room was ok although could hear airplanes passing over head. Shower was freezing in morning but breakfast was ok - generally good value for money and for ease of access to venue.Genuine Expedia guest review
Horrible, small rooms very, very basic. Hard to find!Genuine Expedia guest review

The hotel was situated outside London on the docks easily accesable by tube,the rooms was comfortable but the bar/restaurant needs some serious TLC overall good value for the money and good for the o2 arena.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Brilliant location - very poor breakfast!!!"
We stayed at the Ibis Styles ExCel in London near the O2 last Saturday. The location was perfect and the Hotel room was lovely and comfortable and clean. The thing that let this hotel down was the breakfast. It was the worst breakfast I have experienced in a hotel ever. It was all crowded into one corner so people were crawling over each other. At one […] time there was no bacon, no sausages in fact there was no sausages at all, no eggs, no hash browns and no bread for toast. Hardly any fruit only tinned Grapefruit, bananas, prunes and tinned mixed fruit. It took the chefs/staff over 25 mins to bring eggs out. You can make scrambled eggs in a couple of minutes or they could have fried eggs also in a couple of minutes. There were some mini muffins but no other pastries and no bread to go with the cheese and ham that was supplied. All this was before 1000 and breakfast was supposed to be running until 1100 so goodness knows what the rest of the guests had after this. I work in the hospitality service and surely the hotel must know how many they have booked in and therefore how much breakfast will be needed?? It is simple demand and supply. It was shocking. The management was clearly not there or inadequate as the staff were clearing tables but not replenishing the food supplies. It is such a shame because the rest of the hotel was lovely only to be let down by the breakfast. It will make me hesitate to book an Ibis again, although I hope this is just this one hotel and not t Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient for the tube and theO2"
Very pleasant hotel - surprising for part of a large chain.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location for O2"
Good location, comfy rooms with bathroom 'pod' inside the room. Shower had good hot water but my Dad's room had sewage issues with smells issuing from the bathroom. As we were only sleeping there overnight after a late night concert it was manageable in the short term -Dad kept the door shut! Breakfasts were good and plentiful- hot and cold buffet. […] Dinner in the steakhouse had great steaks but bad chips- the oil was old and tasted foul. Helpful staff cooked new chips but couldn't resolve the problem. Overall a good stay, and would stay again, Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good value, shame about the WiFi"
I often use Ibis hotels, and they are reliably good value for a basic business hotel. However that good value sometimes comes at the expense of irritating quirks. In this case an overly complex WiFi system that the staff were equally frustrated with. I was given a total of 4 codes, because the staff expected most of them to fail ("invalid code"). And […] why do I need to give my postal address to logon! WiFi is a given for hotels, and lots of Ibis hotels get this right, but this one didn't. Otherwise the hotel is fine, although with Custom House station a building site, the neighbourhood for now is a mess. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice hotel for MCM!"
This was the first time I stayed in a hotel for MCM and I'm happy to say this won't be the last - I was told check in started from 14:00 but when I arrived at the hotel at 13:00 I was very pleased to find that I was able to check in early which was fantastic! The room itself whilst not the biggest room had everything I could want - toilet/shower/bed/TV/mirror […] and a place to hang my clothes, so no complaints! I found the staff to be very pleasant and very helpful, especially when the keycard to my room decided not to work! And the breakfast which was included was very nice and had a very good selection to choose from! I would definitely stay at the Ibis Styles again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Modern hotel with awesome breakfast"
I had an enjoyable stay here. The rooms were great - clean and I found the decor tasteful. Hardly anything to complain about except there were construction works going on near the DLR station and at times access was cut off. The shower stall is slightly small, but it's manageable. Breakfast is really good as there is a wide variety of food and drinks […] to choose from. Staff are really friendly and helpful as well. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
