I loved this place. It was clean - practical, functional, reasonably priced and a little bit different. I didnt see anyone really until i checked out so I cant comment on service really. Room was great - bed was good. High speed wifi. Breakfast was good (not sure about the porridge!) and given I was at a conference at the... More

Hotel was clean and well presented. I attended for a work event at the Excel. The hotel was very trendy and very clean. The staff I felt could be better presented and have some sort of uniform as they were all in jeans and I didn't feel this fitted in well with the image of the hotel All in all... More

I stayed in the Aloft London Excel for one night on a recent trip to London. For where we were going in London (Hammersmith) it is quite a bit of travelling on the DLR and Underground but for more central locations it would be a great choice. Travelling on a budget, I'm always looking for something that offers a great... More

This is advertised as a luxurious place to stay and it doesn't disappoint. Prices are reasonable for London rates and the hotel is still new and clean and has some fabulous views all round. I rate hotels by good bathrooms and breakfasts and both were wonderful. No room service which I would have preferred but the alternative open-all-hours mini food... More

Stayed for a long weekend while at O2 tennis. Comfortable clean room. Good spacious shower and bathroom. High quality breakfast. Excellent location for easy public transport. Much better than staying in crowded central London. All in all highly recommended.

I stayed here for 2nights on a business trip in early November. The hotel is very clean and mod. The staff are professional and polite. The location is right beside the DLR so very well connected to the centre of London. Only downside was dinner in the restraunt on Saturday night, service was slow and food wasn't top notch, bit...

This hotel is perfectly located at the Exhibition of Excell. It is so convenient to walk over to the exhibition hall - no commuting no hauling materials and displays - if you cannot take them in one shot you just cross over to the Aloft and get the rest. There are a number of restaurants in the vicinity and many... More

Hello there, Thank you for writing a review. The safety of our guest is a top priority for us, which is why our elevators are indeed only operable with an active room key. It is great to see you noticed this and were impressed by it. Our location is super easy if you are visiting ExCeL so do come back... More

Have just had a two night stay at this hotel. All in all, I had a perfectly pleasant stay. Thought the rooms were modern and comfortable. Price good value, although you have to bear in mind that you're quite a trek from the centre of London. On the other hand, if you're there to attend the ExCeL centre, this is... More
