Time for another quick snapshot of my current adventure (and this one done at 35,000ft aboard an US Airways A320… and trust me – I’m having trouble working out which is first class and economy class on this bird) – this time a quick hotel stop in London – The Travelodge London City Airport.
It’s about 10 minutes walk away from the terminal complex at London City – or a 2 minute bus ride on the 474/473.
If you get a room here, make sure you get one at the front of the property (the roar). This is important as if you get a room face the back, you’ll get the noise of the airport… and the DLR that rattles past.
The room itself… well it’s a Travelodge. It’s going to be pretty basic
The TV was a bit small – but adequate for the place, whilst the bed was… and I’m going to be honest – VERY COMFORTABLE.
The bathroom itself was small, but reasonable for my needs – even eschewing the fashion for just having showers for having a proper bathtub.
The room itself was warm enough – not setting off any asthma attacks and comfortable enough to not feel cold.
Wifi was variable. Not great, but not bad in the least.
I didn’t try the food out (although a fellow Tier point runner did… and was disappointed). For me? It did the job.
The full review in the main trip report – coming soon!
