A little funky, great bar and food for a hotel good. It’s best closest hotel to excel and even in winter you don’t need a coat for the 50 meter walk to centre. This matters as the conference centre is in the middle of cold windy docks. Not the most popular end of the centre

I feel really conflicted writing this review, because the hotel itself was really nice and modern and clean, but the experience I have had with various staff members at Aloft has been an absolute joke. I planned my December trip to London back in July last year because I liked

Hi sekhons2017! Thank you for your feedback in regards to your recent stay with us. I am pleased to hear that the location was convenient for you when visiting the Excel and that you have enjoyed our facilities. I am sorry that you found the room to be smaller than expected and reception desk did not meet your expectations. Aloft hotels have a contemporary design, slightly different than the usual classic hotels. I do hope we will get the change to welcome you back whenever you are in the area. Best regards, Liana Duty Manager

Are there plenty of spaces??
Plenty of parking space at the hotel; however, check for events going on at the time. When I stayed there in July for the Prudential London 100 cycling event, there were some pro teams also staying at the hotel that parked their huge tour buses across most of the spaces limiting it for everyone else.

Hey Abzxx, Aloft is super connected to the city center. Just hopp on the DLR at Prince Regent and go to Canning Town (7min) from there you can take the Jubilee line which brings you right into the heart of London! Looking forward to welcome you soon!
