                It was extremely convenient and a shuttle bus to the O2 venue was organised at reception when we were checking in. Parking was also available.

                When we arrived at the hotel, we got dinner in the Gasworks bar of the hotel and it was very poor. I would recommend not eating in this bar.

                It was a pleasant surprise. For its price, this hotel offers more than you would expect. The rooms are huge, the bed big and confortable and overall very clean and nice.

                A little far if you want to walk to the main spots in downtown, but not too much.
