8/10 Very good

Lovely stay and veey close to o2
Great stay. The room was cosy and funky cool. Nice shower and bed and Very clean. The coffee pods and teas are a lovely touch and music speaker. Its really close to the o2 so perfect location for events. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere. Only criticism is the lack of staff in the mornings for breakfast. Our waiter was lovely think he is Swedish. Anyway he had a lot to do alone with all the rooms checking out for breakfast and big waits on food. Some couple left so he needs help.
