Stayed here whilst working at the Bett show, the rooms were lovely and kept well clean. The modern decor was lovely and very attractive. The walk-in shower was amazing at the end of the day. I took the opportunity to use the gym and to wish my lovely addition to my trip.

I stayed in this hotel back in November for a special birthday treat of mine & really enjoyed the hotel. I can't fault the hotel it's fairly new so everything was very modern clean and well organised. Hotel had a nice bar for relaxing in the evening which was good after long days sight seeing & shopping around london. The... More

We had a great stay. Reception team were very efficient. Parking outside is a complicated affair , sorted in a flash put it on the room and they take the pain away. Foyer was buzzy and the lift cosmic . The room is a nice size with all you could wish for except a bath. DLR train service is 2... More

Lovely details like a Nespresso coffee machine in the room and Bliss Spa toiletries. The breakfast was excellent with a great selection on offer. It was a quiet hotel with modern spacious rooms. A fantastic choice for people visiting the Excel centre.

We arrived first thing in the morning and were allowed check in at 9am. Room was stylish, clean and comfortable. Pool was nice, a bit too warm for swimming. Location is good for Greenwich and other eastern suburbs of London as well as London City Airport.

If you need to be at Excel, this is the place to choose - you're basically leaving the hotel on the first floor and entering the expo. The rooms are standard Aloft rooms - clean, comfortable, average - but good value for money IF you book in advance.

We stayed here for one night ahead of an operation in the city. From the Prince Regent DLR station this hotel is located right at the bottom of the exit of it and on the Thames. The hotel from the outside looks like a Vegas style hotel and the reception area is very well later out, very artistic look and... More
