Now an IBIS hotel ! Very well kept but tiny room.

This was a lower cost hotel quite a ways east of London. The room we had was extremely small, especially by US standards, and cold (wife's big issue), as was the lobby, which was the only place the wifi worked. Of course if your not going in the middle of winter, this is a non-issue. It's a bit out from the city but the subway is right across the street so super convenient. There's a great pub and restaurant in attached as well as an additional restaurant. That was the best part, great food and drink. The place was well kept, definately newer and clean but tiny, not much bigger than our bed. Service was fine. This place would be fine if you are going to the Excel center for a day or want something inexpensive and are willing to take the subway to get to funner areas, which actually would be fairly quick and easy. I personally would prefer something in a little more interesting area but as discount places go, not bad.
