Okay, it s a Travelodge and I ve given it 5 stars. I ve also given the Grange City Hotel 5 stars but all things are relative.
You know what to expect with a Travelodge, they all look the same and as long as you have no expectations of luxury and decadence, you ll be fine. The rooms are clean and basic and that s all you need.
This particular Travelodge is great because it s a stone s throw from Canary Wharf, the City and City Airport. It s a great place to stay if you ve got an early morning flight or if, like me, you live outside of London and need a place to sleep if you re pulling a late night.
The 5 stars is awarded because it is clean, basic accommodation and, best of all, I ve never paid more than £40 per night to stay here.
Grange City is all well and good when it s being expensed but Travelodge is ideal when it s coming straight out of your own pocket.
