I would have liked to give 5 for all of my scores because the boat was a lovely place to stay and it was our second visit. However, my husband slipped on the floor due to slippery tiles and hurt his back, which spoiled the rest of our time in London. A non slip mat on shower floor or hand rail in shower would have prevented this. Reported to reception.

When I arrived at Tune Hotel in Canary Wharf the receptionist described it as "the new hotel experience" - hence the title of my review.
As a hotel it was certainly different. My room was not part of the main hotel building, rather it was in a separate block about 50 metres away.
The room was certainly nice in what is described on the internet as "minimalist". I can't argue with that and my first, and indeed last impressions were good. The floor was of wood, and the walls were, I felt, nicely painted. I had an ensuite shower and although it suited me, I thought that it would be a bit awkward for the larger person to use comfortably as there was no bath. I have found in most of the hotels I have visited that the shower is over a bath, so I've had lots of room to move around.
There is something of a downside to my stay at Tune: there was no phone to speak to anyone in reception and there were no drinks-making facilities, unless I took my own kettle or coffee machine, which I didn't. There is a list of bars, cafes and restaurants in the Canary Wharf area, and it is an extensive list so there is no shortage of very good eating and drinking houses within walking distance, but this means of course that I was eating out pretty much all the time, unless I bought a sandwich to eat in my room. Fine and dandy when the weather ain't too bad, but I wouldn't be over the moon about having to trudge through snow and rain to get fed, or speak to a receptionist.

This place popped up when I looked for somewhere to stay near Canary Wharf. The name drew my attention, and sure enough this is basically a "religious retreat" which also offers rooms to regular guests.
The location is great for Canary Wharf - you can walk there in about 25 mins, or hop on the DLR. The ambiance is very peaceful, and the staff are very friendly.
I took a "luxury double" room, which was spacious, clean and comfortable. While some might describe the carpet and flooring as "basic", it was new and fresh. There was no TV in my room, but I can't remember the last time I watched TV in a hotel - I always use my laptop to view the news or downloaded TV programs.
WiFi seemed good and was easy to connect.
The "Yurt Cafe" was closed when I arrived. I assume it's not a full time restaurant, but it would have been fun to try it. There are several good local places to eat with a variety of prices and styles of cuisine within easy walking distance, and Natalja on the reception desk gave some good suggestions.
Breakfast was excellent - especially the tea. It's a basic buffet, but perfectly OK.
The building has several rooms for sitting and reading, and the grounds are delightful and peaceful.
I traveled by DLR, so I can't comment on parking. Limehouse station is about a five minute walk.
The cost was very good value, and my only regret is that I don't need to be in that area very often, so I don't know when I'll get another opportunity to stay there.

Canary Wharf is a rather nice and somewhat quiet area in London that took me about 30 minutes to get to Excel. The apartment was clean and comfortable with reliable Internet. There were a number of lightbulbs burned out in the apartment, but they were fixed the day after I informed the staff about them.
Not the most existing place to stay, but I really can't complain, it was exactly as advertised, and conveniently located for my week.

Really liked this apartment. We shared it with friends and their kids. Plenty of room for all of us. Great to have the space to sit relax and chat through our days in comfort. Much better than getting hotel rooms. We have the same event on next year and we are definitely going to try and book again should they have the a availability.

Easy City access to all London and surrounding areas. Other than one hotel staff member, the others were not friendly and did not even look up when we entered the lobby. The room was very spacious and the kitchen was well equipped but the cleanliness was short. Although the furniture was good, it was "tired" and needs to be replaced or at least professionally cleaned. The lobby is not appealing at all. This hotel could be a gem with some elbow grease and updated decor.

London’s 21st-century waterside business district, Canary Wharf is best known for its cutting-edge architecture, including the 50-storey obelisk-shaped skyscraper, One Canada Square. Get there by the Docklands Light Railway, with elevated tracks giving wonderful views into a world of glass and steel. By contrast, historic Greenwich, home to the National Maritime Museum, is just across the Thames. A foot tunnel links the two.
