How to Get There
First impression was not great as they had double booked our room and we were moved to another apartment block (not a great start after a very long flight from the Med), staff very apologetic and tried to do their best. The new apartment block was actually much closer to the Canary Wharf station so proved to be a positive. Well setup apartment with enough kit to allow users to self cater and eat in. Lack of air conditioning was a bit of a problem even during mid September, but outside the big international hotel chains this is the norm in the UK (we found to our cost over the next two weeks!). Apartments are not serviced regularly so make sure your teenagers hang that wet towel up! Overall a very good place to stay and at a reasonably competitive price.
We traveled as a family of 4 (including a 19 year old boy and 16 year old girl) on vacation. We stayed here over a week. I would say the positives are: you get a lot of square footage (2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms); the price is reasonable for London; and, the Canary Wharf area is safe and clean. The negatives are as follows: the place is worn out and needs fresh paint, new carpet and new furniture; the shower was only luke warm; there were no electrical outlets in the bathroom for anything but a shaver (problematic for trying to use a hairdryer); and, most doors within the unit would not stay open without wedging a door stopper under the door (and they did not provide enough stoppers). This was annoying. As far as the location, Canary Wharf is a clean, safe business/financial district. However, the hotel was not as convenient to the underground as I had hoped based on other reviews I read. The Canary Wharf underground and DLR stations are an approximately 15 - 20 minute walk from the hotel. Most underground trips into central London from Canary Wharf are 20-25 minutes on the tube. I would estimate approx. 45-60 minutes total time from hotel to most central London destinations. I will probably look for other hotel alternatives on our next trip.
We received our room very quickly thanks to the kind receptionist that day 23/6, the apartment was very comfortable clean and well organized, the stuff was very helpful especially Laura, we enjoyed her input on every subject that we requested her assistance , she was kind and very patient.
We would definitely recommend this place and also hope to come back soon!
