Beautifully modern hotel. Excellent facilities. Rooms are spacious and clean. We opted out of the breakfast as they only offered a continental and it was expensive for what it was. There are a couple of places to eat near by. My only issue is the cost of parking. We stayed 2 nights and the parking cost £14 a day. I...

Hi Jonathan, thanks for the 5 star review!! for guests who would like to have a slight smaller breakfast then we have our Re:fuel Take-away kiosk were we have a large variety of items freshly served. Just a note when driving in for your next stay, and not having the parking app installed, no worries at all, as our Talents...

This hotel is a little too contemporary. I describe it as the teenage sibling of the remaining Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) chain. Feels like a converted warehouse. It is located in the middle of nowhere. Docklands is a long way from central London and still has a lot of construction which slows down traffic. Parking is charged hourly and goes...

Hi There, thanks for your feedback. I am sorry to hear that the Aloft module didn't fit to your expectations. The hotel is indeed located in the Docklands next to the Excel, and although we are a little out of the city center, with the DLR on the doorstep it does bring you to the city within 25 minutes. In...

I, the man of the house was given the responsibility to book a hotel for a little London visit for an event at the O2 arena. The event at the O2 was below par but I wont digress. I went on one of the top secret deals and took the risk with the possibility of receiving some wrath of an...

Great hotel, great location (if you like Docklands - we do) friendly helpful staff, nice pool/gym which we enjoyed, even a great room! BUT, I had just about the worst nights sleep that I can remember, comfy bed, pillows were a disaster though! Great big fluffy things with absolutely NO support, almost ruined the stay but the rest of the...

I love this hotel for its functionality but loathe it for its personality - despite trying hard and having great staff, it lacks soul. Fantastic location very convenient for LCY and DLR gives easy access to town. Restaurant is OK but... I want more character and not just good food.

The hotel is conviniently located near the DLR station. Hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. Meal at the hotel restaurant are very good. Aloft London Excel will be for sure a good choice for a business trip.

There are USB charging sockets, and you can connect your laptop to the TV. Shower is massive and great water pressure. Bed was big and very comfortable. Blackout blinds. A great night's sleep. Free shuttle to Canary Wharf. Really cannot fault for business, as a tourist, you may want to be closer to central London however.

I stayed for 4 nights. Huge room (compared to other London hotels), very modern interior and exterior. Comfy bed and very-very clean. Good sound insulation...
