This hotel is amazing, it is clean and modern the bedroom is large and the bed very comfortable. We have a fridge and a safe, so very important. Travelling to the Oval was easy, as the DLR train station was 3 minutes walk away from the hotel. We ate in the restaurant, the food was excellent and the service was... More

It's a good-looking modern hotel so why can't they offer a decent cup of coffee. They should be ashamed! Good swimming pool, decent facilities, attractive reception area but I keep coming back to that coffee. Bring your own coffee kit if you're staying

I have been using the Aloft Excel Hotel for business meetings this week during a very busy conference at London ExCel and have been very impressed. The hotel has a relaxed friendly funky feel with wonderful staff to match. Conveniently located directly next to the Prince Regent DLR station directly next to the Excel Conference Centre. I will in future... More

We travelled on the DLR to the hotel, it was very easy to get there from the station as the two are linked. The hotel is very clean and everything feels brand new. There is a 24 hour shop which is a bit expensive but that is to be expected. The shop carries basic items and some light snacks and... More

This is a fantastic hotel, clean, efficient, stylish and modern with helpful and pleasant staff who couldn't have been more helpful. The bar, pool and gym are good and there are a range of complimentary magazines and newspapers each day. I was really impressed that they even put a letter through our door to inform us of window cleaning the... More

My boyfriend and I took part in the London triathlon and wanted to stay somewhere near the night before. This hotel was perfect, it was literally right by the docks! My mum also came to support so we had 2 rooms. The rooms were lovely, much better than I expected, modern, minimalist, and spacious considering where we were. Breakfast was... More

Stayed here for 2 nights with two small children and we had a great time from start to finish. Checking in was a breeze and we had a complimentary air mattress (called a Camp Aloft bed) for one child with funky London themed bedlinen. The room was spotlessly clean and spacious and we had a great view of the river... More
