Let's be clear about this; this is NOT a hotel. It is a bedsit without a kitchen, charging hotel prices. Stayed here for four nights. Bed sheets were never replaced (and I don't think had been washed since the last person had stayed there). The room was stuffy, dusty, dirty and smelly. Bed sheets smelt of old sweat. Entire room...

Upon entry to the hotel I forgave all the signs that it needed some money spending on it and thought for less than £100 you get what you pay for! However... as shown in a picture below the rooms are not cleaned thoroughly enough, I had to clean the bathroom floor with a wet wipe due to it being dirty......

Myself and my partner stayed here Wednesday Nov 30th for 3 days. All the staff were met really went out of there way to look after all our needs. When we first arrived we were very pleasantly surprised that all our luggage was taken up to our room. All the staff we met were lovely but a special mention and...

My wife and I booked this hotel as we had read that it was convenient for the o2 - and it certainly was. A short bus or taxi ride and we were there. When we checked in we were told that we had been "allocated" a twin room. We weren't really that bothered as we just wanted somewhere to kip...

A short overall summary of my stay at this hotel, AWFUL the bed sheets were all stained. Shower essentials all empty and not cleaned. No working TV, kettle was black and filthy. Very unhelpful and UN-friendly. Breakfast Uneatable, WOULD NEVER STAY HERE AGAIN

This hotel was just right for us after night out at O2, bed comfortable on suite, tea coffee making facility, television. Breakfast was included in price.

Location for the O2 is good and well served by buses but can't think of any other positives. Very dark and dingy stairs. Bed was a bit of a trampoline and sheet too small to cover the mattress. Barely space for our legs between the loo and tiny basin. Lousy TV signal. Main gripe was breakfast where policy had allegedly...

Stayed here for the tennis at O2, hotel is ideally situated with a bus stop practically outside the front door, bus 129 or 188 takes you right there. Nice Turkish restaurant within the hotel, where we ate one evening & the food was very good. Rooms basic but fine , friendly, helpful staff , thank you particularly to Maria for...

Seems like the quality of the hotel has dropped significantly. Reception opens each day at 11:00 am - so there is no way to troubleshoot anything that might occur in the morning. The only staff available outside of reception times is someone who can barely speak English - though they do try their best, it is difficult to get anything...

Staying in Greenwich

Neighbourhood Profile
Greenwich Mean Time starts here, so to speak, as the very concept of global time was established at Royal Observatory, just one of several buildings of architectural interest in Greenwich. Indeed, the whole of Greenwich's historic town center, its Royal Park and a number of related buildings (and one world famous ship, the Cutty Sark) make up the UNESCO World Heritage site known as Maritime Greenwich. Today a laser beam is shot out across the night sky from the Observatory to mark the location of the Prime Meridian. Other bold (some say brash) 21st century additions to the area include landmarks such as The O2 entertainment complex (previously known as the Millennium Dome) and the Air Line cable cars, which offer scenic transport across the Thames between North Greenwich and the Royal Docks.
