A quick one night stay and meeting at the Aloft. Great central location for the o2 arena. Hotel is stylish, has some nice little details. Clean, comfy and secure. Room size is great, and the bed was very comfortable.

Very impressed with great room with water view and lots of tech. Immaculate and stylish. Friendly, relaxed and helpful staff made me feel welcome and comfortable. Breakfast was acceptable but lacking something. Coffee hot and strong, and cold stuff all fine, but I cannot stand people wandering around with plates piled high with stuff they then decide they cannot eat....

We booked into the hotel on Friday 20th May with two friends. We were all celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary and decided on a weekend in London. On check in when we mentioned it was both couples 40th wedding anniversary, the hotel gave us all a free ticket for a cocktail in the bar which was a very nice touch....

If working on or attending an event at Londons Excel centre, this is a great hotel to stay in. The rooms are large and comfortable with every convenience. It's right next door to the Excel Centre so access couldn't be easier. The only thing that lets it down is the food. I ate lunch in the restaurant and the only...

We stopped in this hotel as I was working at Excel. The location couldn't be any better. The service is really good and staff are very friendly, which I find is unusual for London around this price point. The food in the hotel is very good, considering there was a large group of us, we couldn't have had any better....

This hotel is less than 1/2 hour on the DLR from Central London. The trains run every 5 minutes and until after 12 midnight. It's a business and commuter area in the old docks of London.

Easy to get to, via the Docklands Light Railway. Our room was large and very comfortable, with views of the river. Breakfast was excellent, well cooked and plenty of choice. We weren't sure where reception was at first, but found it ok, and really enjoyed our stay
