Good For Solo
After less than an hours hop from Paris Orly to London City Airport, this was an ideal location being 5 mins taxi ride from the modern airport.
Although it is not in the heart of London you can pick up trains or even the river Taxi's very easily and can be in Westminster within 30- 40 mins from this hotel,
A clean and sensibly priced hotel for London
Unique Quality: The Holiday Inn Express London – Royal Docks / Docklands only minutes away from Canary Wharf and the Excel Exhibition Centre, London City Airport is only 2km away and Canning Town Tube and Bus station is within a 5 minutes walk from this London hotel.
Stratford is just 2 stops on the jubilee line for the forthcoming Olympic games and very convenient for the O2 arena
Update to Go east - take the chain
Recently stayed in the Travel inn at Excel (the exhibition centre). There are loads of new hotels springing up around here, including an Etap and a Ramada.
When there is not a conference / exhibition on then many of the rooms are available and only cost between 40 and 60 pounds a night.
Transport links are limited - but the DLR is increasingly useful and reliable.
Another example is the Holiday Inn express at Canning Town (£60 a room with cont. Breakfast), Standard hotel, as you would expect from a train but right next to Canning Town Tube (jubilee line) which is only eight stops from the heart of the West End.
Unique Quality: Unlike most hotel in central London, if you arrive by car, it can be parked for free here.
Directions: Dockland/ Royal docks area
Go east - take the chain
One way of keeping cost down is to is to look on the websites companies like Formula 1 ,Travel inn, Travelodge, Holiday Inn Express.
There are a number of these places in the east end around Barking and Docklands. As long as the transport links are resonable and you don't want any local nightlife these places are good value.
The Docklands Light Railway (DLR) also provides a more pleasant way of entering London as most of it is above ground before diving underground to get to "Bank" station on weekdays.
Room only prices often come up at about 40-50 pounds a night.
Unique Quality: None - we are talking chains here, but at least you won't get dodgy decor, unexplained stains on the sheets, or a greasy heart-attack breakfast in the morning. There is also zil chance of the place doubling as the local knocking shop.
