The room was spacious but the thermostat did not work at a time when the ambient temperature was quite cold. There was the constant noise of the DLR trains well into the night. The quality of the food and service at the Spice Indian restaurant was poor as what I ordered I did not receive and the portions were small for the price. The furniture and the decor looked warn and shabby.

My wife, myself and a couple of friends were in London for a weekend to do some sight seeing, I was looking on the internet for a hotel and found this one for at good price as we were booking at the last minute. We had nice welcome from the staff on check in, the room was spacious and had an impressive view of canary wharf and the Themes. The room could of done with a bit of updating as the decor was looking tired. We took the option to have breakfast which was very good with lots of foods to choose from. The hotel was only a five minute walk from the DLR and the tube at Canary Wharf which made it easy for us to travel into Central London. The only problem we had was a leak from the ceiling of our room which appeared at 5am on the last night of our stay. The management were sympathetic to our complaint and offered to move us but as we were only going to be there for a few more hours so we chose to stay where we were. As compensation for the leak we were offered our car parking fees for free, as this would of cost us almost £50 we happily excepted. The staff were very polite and helpful and are a credit to the hotel. Over all we had a pleasent stay and would probably stay there again if we could get a good deal on a room .

Room was very stuffy and air con could not handle it. It is not possible to open a window. The bed was extremely small (width) and that with me being a small person. I paid 150€ a night due to late booking and it was in no way worth the price. Location is excellent with shopping mall and tube and train station close by. Was cleanly but rather shabby.

The Britannia was much cheaper and better value than every other hotel I saw including chains like the Premier Inn. I had a limited budget and felt the Britannia was good value and whilst a bit tired and slightly off the beaten track the view from the 10th floor was spectacular and the general experience good.

After 5 nigts x 2 rooms I can´t understand why a 4 star hotel don´t fix a broken hairdryer or temp of 27 C in the room ?? Opening a window with train-traffic outside is not a alternative if its to hot in the room. Or moving to another room to get a, perhaps, working hairdyer ?? Arriwing was a suprice: brekfast not included and paying when arriving ?? Newer happened before in any other hotel arround the world. Sorry to say that o othervice nice hotelvisit were unplesent by small details that anyone could fix if they wanted

I really enjoyed my stay. I was born and raised in London and therefore it was my first time in a hotel. Canary Wharf has definitely become one of my favourite places. It is very modern and offers a lot in terms of shops, pubs, etc. as well as excellent connections to central London. If you are a good walker I would recommend walking along the Thames Path from Canary Wharf to the home of the Mayflower and the glorious Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site.

Das Hotel entspricht einem 100,- bis 130,- € /DZ/Nacht Hotel in einer mittleren bis großen Stadt in Deutschland. Es wird wie in London üblich etwas lieblos instandgehalten und auch hier: zahle viel – bekomme wenig. Die Zimmer sind für Londoner Verhältnisse recht groß und sauber. Alle Sehenswürdigkeiten sind von der U-Bahnstation (ca. 3 Min.zu Fuß) in ca. 10 – 15 Min. zu ereichen. Frühstücken kann man in der Stadt um Welten besser.

For the price this was a great place to stay in London. The location in Canary Wharf is excellent as you have everything you need right there and can be in the centre of the city in minutes, yet at the same time it's a safe and quiet area. The hotel itself seems most suited to business travellers and there is quite a formal atmoshpere. Prices are hiked for breakfast and parking to match the 4star status, but there are cafes nearby which are better for meals and an NCP car park close by is £11 for 24 hours, better than the £15 charged between 6pm and 9am and £3 an hour thereafter. All told, however, this is a great base for seeing London.

Heating in the room did not work. It was 30+C and when we phone to have it fixed - they turned it off. Breakfast was not worth the £12 each. Very stickey. Tables were not wiped properly from previous guests. Construction going on next to hotel. Would not recommend it to anyone. The hotel itself was fine the room and the food were the issue.

Bed was hard as a rock. Pillows very very thin. As a result could not sleep. Breakfast looked inedible so I passed but they put it on my bill anyway. Had to ask for it be removed. Public internet access difficult as only one computer available. Checked out after two days as found the could not bear it a moment longer. Very quiet surrounds at night, great shopping for clothes at Canary wharf. Rooms very large but decor ghastly.

This was my first stay at the hotel, I was more than satisfied with the standard. The location was a bit away from the center but this was not a big problem, since the subway is close by and it takes only about 15 minutes to get to Picadilly Circus. I paid 5£ for 1 week access to the swimming pool, jacuzi, steam bath, sauna and the surprisingly well equiped gym. I found the staff profesional and helpful. I asked to change room after the second day because I was not satisfied with the view; straight into the ventilation system of the hotel. I requested therefore to change to another room, they did without any hesitation. The room was much bigger with a view of the Thames river. I will certainly return to this hotel!

L'Hotel è facilmente raggiungibile, anche con le valigie, dalla stazione della metropolitana Canary Wharf. L'Hotel corrisponde a quanto indicato sul sito. Le camere sono pulite e sufficientemente ampie per due persone. Sono arredate in stile inglese e la moquette riveste tutti i pavimenti dell'Hotel. La prima colazione all'inglese è abbondante, mentre la continental è senza dubbio scarsa.Ottimo punto di riferimento per un successivo viaggio a Londra.

We wanted a double and got two singles but together and so we felt the crack, also you could feel the springs in the beds which wasn't very comfotable. The welcoming was not very good. They didn't come out from behind the table to help with anything but got the reservation processed quickly. the employees were very competent in screwing you. The charge for the pool they didn't forget that, the £14 breakfast they didn't forget. The area was nice. we got some wine and went to the little park in the area which was really nice and secluded. it is a bit of a hike into the city but it's doable.

Triple room ordered for three adults, we did not expect the third bed to be a short camping bed. A coach/bed would have been more suitable. We had dinner at the Pizzeria on the Saturday night and had the following experience: House wine (red) ordered was served very warm! When notifying the waiter that this wine must have been microwaved, he took the bottle away, immediately returned telling us that this wine was supposed to be warm. We estimated the temperature of the wine to be at least 35 centigrades. We were supplied with icecubes to cool the wine. The meals ordered, a lasagna and two carbonaras were very disappointing. The carbonaras consisted of a thick white sauce covering the pasta, some cheese taste, and a few pieces of ham. A meal at a takeaway shop would have been better and cheaper!

Considering the amount of money paid and that it is a four star hotel i would of thought that the air conditionining in the room would work, the facilities would be better quality, ironing facilities would not have to be shared if trouser press does not work and finally you should not be a guest at your hotel and have to pay for parking faclities. If I was informed of this fact before I parked I would not have parked in the hotel car park.

A very pleasant short stay. After an initial problem where I asked to change rooms as the room allocated (401) was quite small - but more to the point had an awful outlook over a roof onto other buildings. After a little prevarication the young man at the desk moved us to room 302 which was larger and had a great view across the water. Some of the staff were "polite rather than pleasant" - but we enjoyed our stay. There was a discount on breakfast for an internet booking which was good and the full breakfast was excellent. (Although they couldn't find any brown sauce !!!)

The price of the room was quite cheap but it was not indicated that breakfast (12 £ per person) was not included. We came by car, and the parking of the hotel costed us 15 £ (we arrived after 11:00 and left at about 10:30 !!! What looked a great bargain turned out to be quite expensive.... Otherwise the rooms and views were excellent but the welcome really poor and not very friendly and helpful.
