8/10 Very good

Good for the 02
Nice hotel, very convenient for the 02 arena. Quirky rooms, however, very hot and air conditioning wasn’t working. Fire escape light illuminated the whole room and turned it green. Pricey for the room size.

What a little gem! Absolutely perfect for The 02, a five minute walk from the venue and from North Greenwich tube station. Breakfast was great, the staff were lovely and the room although small was everything we needed for our stay. Thanks, we'll be back!
