Travelodge London City Airport Hotel
Travel Blogs from London
This morning most of the group left for an optional excursion to stone-hedge and bath. I did not sign up so I slept in. We were up pretty late, or rather early in the morning and I was a little hung over from last nights festivities--I probably could have slept all day. I didn't want to waste the little time I had left in London sleeping...so me …
I told everyone I was going to wake up this morning to go on a run--I
don't think too many people believed me. I had absolutely no problem
waking up..probably because I have not adjusted to the time difference
yet. I woke up promptly at 8:20 and went on a 24 minute run. I was
afraid of getting lost so I just stayed on City road …
The walking tour of London ended in Covent Square, which is one of the districts in London. It is a really cute little neighborhood with streets filled with resturants and pubs. Everyone went seperate ways to grab dinner and some people met David, our tour director, to go to the underground transportation system, known as the "tube", to go home …
11th June - London Today we took a train back to Brussels and then we went on the Eurostar to London. It was the super fast train that goes under the English Tunnel, it took only 2 hours! We then took the Tube to Heathrow as we were staying in a hotel near the airport. This was the end of our travels as we got a plane at 11:55 the next morning and …
After our last breakfast with several of our friends from the tour, we enjoyed a leisurely morning on our own, in the warm sunshine outside the Coral hotel in Piraeus awaiting are transfer to the airport. Fourteen of the 42 who had been on the tour with us, were taking an optional 3 day cruise around several of the nearby Greek islands so we said …

Historical Traveler Reviews Travelodge London City Airport Hotel
Excellent - clean & well located
Travelodge usually do 'exactly what it says on the tin' and this one is no exception. It's very modern, clean and smart with nice size rooms, TV, coffee & tea facilites, bathroom with bath & shower, room service and on-site restaurant.
It's location, whilst unattractive is excellent for the Airport, being a short 5 minute walk from the check-in counters. Well done Travelodge, keep the hotel tidy and the prices low and I'm sure I'll be back...
The London City Airport location seems to regularly offer internet bargains, and I was able to get a pair of family rooms for 26 pounds on October 5th and 6th. This is an above-average Travelodge location, and appears to get a lot of business from business travellers, so has more amenities (and is generally quieter) than many other similar Travelodges.
For £26 (booked 6 weeks in advance via the travelodge website), we got a nights stay at the TL London City Airport. For this money, the room was certainly worth it, though whether I'd stay if i paid the full rack rate of £59, well more later!
Thank goodness for this hotel!
I needed to travel from LCY, and had to book both flight and hotel in a hurry.
The hotel is fairly new, so clean and well maintained. It's about a 15 minute walk from the DLR station, or buses 473 and 474 from the airport pass by the hotel, as an option.
The rooms are very basic, but are clean and big enough. Travelodges have few amenities - although coffee and tea making facilities are a good 'un - but it's likely that most guests at this hotel will be staying briefly, so fancy rooms aren't a priority.
Some rooms face the airport, so aeroplane noise might be an issue, but I didn't find it overly intrusive.
Overall a great deal (I paid 56 quid, booking at the last minute) and a positive boon to those flying from LCY.
This hotel is only 6 months old and is immaculate. I paid £26 for the room which was standard Travelodge quality - clean, good shower and tea/coffee making facilities. The only thing lacking was air conditioning - it was London`s hottest July day since records began. This made sleeping difficult due to the heat but for that amount of money whose complaining! We were visiting the Motor Show at Excel which is over the water from the hotel so the location was great. Left luggage facilities are available at London City Airport for only £2 a bag - believe me, that is an absolute bargain - it`s £6 at the stations in central London. We arrived early, dumped our bags at the airport after arriving by the super efficient Docklands Light Railway (DLR), got the DLR to EXCEL and the motor show, DLR back to airport and then a £2.80 cab to the Travelodge - the cabbie went berserk, he`d been waiting an hour! We only got the cab because the road network looked daunting, as it was it is simply turn right out of the airport and you`ll see the hotel within 30 seconds in front of you, 5 minutes later you`re checking in smoothly. Night time wise, for getting back from central london, the last DLR train is 0030hrs from Bank but we missed that and got a cab - it was £30 so be aware of this when sorting your budget out. If it`s midweek in London and you`re not a clubber or person looking for a niche market!!! then 0030hrs is well late enough as surprisingly central london really does get quiet after 11pm. Breakfast at £6.50 is also of good quality. I cannot recommend this hotel enough and I am a very critical person.
Stayed here for three nights at the beginning of June. My parents were travelling from New Zealand and with the exchange rate we needed somewhere economical to stay.
Bargain of the year!
I have just spent three nights at the City of London Airport Travelodge and don't believe there is a better bargain in the city. I got the room through the Travelodge special deals for a miniscule £26 a night - for a family room with double bed, sofa and pullout single bed. It was basic but clean (like all other Travelodges). It's a good 10-15 mins walk to the DLR station but worth it for the price. The DLR takes 22 mins into Bank Station in the city and a day ticket to use on all public transport is £5.40. We even came back close to midnight a couple of times and the DLR was still busy and felt very safe. For two of us staying in the room it was cheaper than a hostel. Highly recommended.
I stayed at the Travelodge London City Airport in April 2006.
BOOKING: Stayed 5 nights (18-23 Dec. 2005) via online booking for 10-Pound a night "Supersaver" deal. Giving 4 stars based on this heavily discounted price deal, and would still give 4 stars even if on a normal/rack rate deal.
