Historical Traveller Reviews of Travelodge London Docklands Hotel
Staff not helpful. No in room facilities. Can't get phone calls transfered to your room if family need you. Can only dial out if you're prepared to put 30p connect fee and 20p per minute on your credit card. No facility for internet connection unless you pay even more for the connect time. 5 Pound an hourwireless internet. No guest services (can't dial room to room, no laundry services). Smelly heating (smeell's like someone left their wig in the heater. Nothing worth looking/eating at within an easy walk of the place. No free parking except for the first 20 minutes (which wasn't enough time to check in and unload the hire car.
By the way, don't try return your hire car to London City Airport ...booked a car in Edinburgh for a day (5pm to 5pm). Went to the airport at 5pm Saturday only to find it had CLOSED for the day at 12:30pm. 20 pounds of phone calls (plural) to a call centre in Barcelona before we hammered on the door of the terminal and handed over the car keys to a very unhappy security guard.
The only real problems we had was that our key card to our room never worked, and every night we arrived home, we were backwards and forwards to reception a few times to re-enable the key card. It was quite frustrating after a while! Also, the first room we had, we couldn't get the taps on, then after using some extra muscle, we got them on but they wouldn't go off. This is a minor thing that could happen anywhere though and they moved us to another room straight away.
Overall, we would stay here again, although only if it was £10. Travelling into the city centre was fine, and didn't take too long, but if money is not a consideration, it would be better to stay more central.
Better than expectedfrom CelticFire
some improvement at lastfrom 504gld
The room this time was quiet and clean, one broken window latch but it was warm and stayed open! The room was serviced all ok and was nice and clean. The TV was fuzzy and the on demand system remote seemed not to work correctly.
The hotel now has WiFi LAN and pay per use internet terminals in the lobby.
I didnt use the cafe bar as past experience has not been very good, instead heading to Canarry Wharf on the DLR where there are lots of eating places.
Staff were polite and friendly, perhaps somebody at Travelodge is reading these reviews!
Lets hope my last prepaid booking at Christmas is even better.
great timefrom angie
it is a very short distance from the dlr light railway .i only used bar once but seemed ok sky telly there . didnt have breakfast there because if you are going in to london at tower hill station there is a wetherspoons where breakfast are £1.99 . we only paid £26 for the room so well worth the money .
Cheap and Easyfrom kevinpng
You Get what you pay for !from Hinckley
We would stay there again for the money and convenience of the tube but would take a fan for the room and wouldn’t leave my boots ect
Basic but adequatefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Overall a cheap option of staying in London if you don't expect too much
RED HOT SALSAfrom herenow89
Not a pleasant stayfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Rooms extremely poorly maintained, broken window latches, plaster all over floor, blown lightbulbs, 1 power socket available per room, little to no space to unpack clothes in the non family rooms.
Sadly with the staff there are no redeeming features, for the staff treat you like having customers around is something of a nuisance, and they would really rather not bother with them.
The service in the restaurant doesn't deserve a mention, the till quite often not accepting cards, and the staff unable or can't be bothered to repair. Everything about this place (dont want to use the word Hotel) is too much. The staff are surly and often rude.
I dont recommend this place to anyone, this travelodge needs a change of management completely, as if you are paying full price (as I was) this is a poor quality place to stay. If it was £10 Per night I think I could tolerate it, but this is not a cheap place to stay (by mainland european standards).
Top Local Tips for London
Dont waste cash on Taxi's to and from arena! From East India-Use the Docklands Light Railway(DLR) and the tube jubilee line to North Greenwich to get to O2 Arena.Its much cheaper, safe and easy to navigate.I was anxious about using public transport but even I was able to get there and back without getting lost.Easy to read maps at every station.
Cheap(er) Show Tickets Buy tickets on the day at one of the booths at Charing Cross. (Unless you absolutely have to see a particular show) You will get a good deal, and with about 90 different shows available you will get to see something memorable.
Oyster You dont have to be a London resident to have an Oyster card for discounted pre-pay travel on London Transport (Tube/Bus etc). Pick one up at any ticket counter, fill out the form, top it up and thats it.
