    A good location

    An old and tired property. The room with no window that I booked was not an inside room but what appears to be one of many additional rooms built in the basement.

    The location

    The room setup is not Victorian but simply old and not renovated. Basically one of the most depressing hotel rooms I have slept in. For that price I really would have expected something better. In addition the customer service was even worst..

    I was familiar with the neighborhood.

    No free wifi (well 20 minutes a day--not enough); lumpy mattress; unintelligible staff (most did not speak English; the ones that did I couldn't understand).

    The size of the bath in the suite we got upgraded to after a mouse fell from the gaping hole in the ceiling from water damage, and that it had jets

    Upon arrival the reception could not find our booking and was a little rude, however the booking was found and sorted rather quickly. As we wondered around the labyrinth that is the Britannia International Hotel (Canary Warf) with rather poor directions, I came across water damage and a hole in the ceiling right by our room. I went to find my wife (still wondering around trying to find our room) as I walked back towards our room I heard scurrying in the ceiling, I looked up at the gaping hole caused by the water damage only to see two mice, one of which fell out onto the floor and ran into room 167 (there is a CCTV camera that will show you the incident). Our room was substandard and after complaining (and mentioning the mice) we were offered an upgrade. When being upgraded and moved from our room the concierge seemed unfazed, although apologetic and helpful, by the fact there are mice in a hotel (which has a restaurant downstairs, I'm sure this is a health and safety issue?). In the suite we were upgraded to there was a lovely little humane mouse trap under our bed (clearly an ongoing issue with mice) the bed was comfortable enough (on tiny wheels and seeming to be two bases pushed together to make one bed), the pillows were ok at best. The rooms and hotel as a whole need small upgrades wherever you look (wallpaper, burnt furniture needs to be removed or refurbished, tiny TV's in a large room, that kind of thing). When we decided to head out to eat (obviously no chance we were eating a thing in the hotel) there were trays of used crockery, glasses, wine bottles and a bin left out in the open on the floor (another possible health and safety issue here?). Needless to say; our short stay at this hotel was nothing short of an expensive catastrophe.
