I have stayed at this ibis for the past three weeks. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and the beds comfortable. I have no issues with noise from other guests. There are absolutely no frills included, even the ability to make tea/coffee in your room. There is a lot of noise outside, mainly because the hotel is located very close to industry. Lorries going past the hotel are felt and not only heard. While the hotel is well located geographically, it is in an area that is really not very well served. With I think one exception there is nowhere nearby to have a drink or go for something to eat. The closest shop is reasonably well stocked but very expensive. You need to come prepared! My main concern with the location of the hotel is the lack of street lighting leading up to it. The walk from the nearest DLR stop (Pontoon dock) is only about ten minutes but in places, especially near to the hotel, is very dark and you are walking past derelict land. As a middle-aged man I feel reasonably safe, but the street is quiet and secluded and more could be done by the hotel to improve approach to it. Even if that only means asking the council to switch the street lights on!
