Stayed there while by daughter worked the Star War Celebration. Our room was a double and it was the size of a US Aloft room (which is HUGE by European standards). Had refrigerator, full American Breakfast and was right on the DLR train line. While she worked I played. This hotel offers a great value compared to rooms in central... More

This might be the best hotel we've stayed in to date! Really modern and clean, and the location was great if you're okay with staying a bit out of the centre of London! We didn't really need maid service, and we were fine to reuse our towels, so you just hang a sign on the door and you receive a... More

If you are flying in/out of City Airport, working in Canary Wharf or visiting the ExCeL centre then this is the hotel for you. If not then its just too far to commute in and out. It takes about 40 minutes to Farringdon for example by public transport. Add this to your daily exploration and it will tire you out.... More

Nice hotel, nice rooms once we got changed as air on not working and manager was going to give us a fan until I refused and demanded a room change. 22.4 degree is not fun to sleep in, it was cooler in reception. Maybe the manager likes to sleep in heat but guests want air on after you do say... More

This hotel is about 45 minutes from central London by train/tube or taxi, but it is perfect for anyone working at the ExCel convention center. It is directly adjacent from the convention center's east entrance. It is also located next to the Prince a Regent train station which makes it a breeze to catch the train into the city. The...

We chose Aloft at the Excel center because we wanted a quite place away from the hustle and bustle of central London. Aloft is perfect for this. I'll take each element in turn: 1. The hotel. We loved Aloft. It's part of the Starwood group and as such it met the relevant excellent criteria. It's clearly a modern hotel and... More

I stayed at the Aloft hotel for a few nights during an exhibition at the Excel. Although I use hotels quite often and usually on a budget, this was certainly a cut above the norm. The room was very spacious, modern and clean. The bed was so comfortable, the room quiet. Service throughout the hotel was excellent. The food was... More

I had high hopes for this property as there was some great reviews and it looked quite nice on the website. However, as an SPG platinum member it was anything but great. The service was nothing special or helpful. The hotel itself is nice, a little far out from Central London, but you can still get to Central in about... More

We booked this room as a late deal with a good discount but would be happy to pay the full price as this was a great place to stay. A very short walk from the DLR (Prince Regent) and so very easy to get into central London. The hotel looks good from the outside and matches up inside. Bed was... More
