We stayed here for one night ahead of an operation in the city. From the Prince Regent DLR station this hotel is located right at the bottom of the exit of it and on the Thames. The hotel from the outside looks like a Vegas style hotel and the reception area is very well later out, very artistic look and... More

Can't find anything negative about this hotel! Away from the raucous chaos of central London, the hotel was very peaceful and comfortable. We had the pleasure of encountering friendly staff throughout our whole stay. The hotel has modern and immaculate facilities, the gym was very well equipped and the pool was so relaxing after a long day. The room was... More

Very good option for easy access to the Excel, or in my case Canary Wharf. Stylish, simple and pretty friendly staff for London. Can be lucky with some decent rates in quieter periods. Very handy for the DLR and definitely a great option for a stay in this part of the city.

The Aloft is a modern, funky, cool hotel. Not by any means the cheapest but a great place to stay. The rooms are creative, neat and comfortable. The staff are friendly and well informed.

We were staying at the aloft in excel for a business trip. The position was just great for us, to go to the exhibition a few meters away. The rooms were comfortable, the Colors of the wall were dark it was a bit strange but it seems to be the loft concept in all their properties. We had sufficient space... More

If you need to stay in Docklands or are visiting the Excel or the 02 I would strongly recommend this hotel - it is literally right next door to the Excell centre and also immediately next to the DLR (Docklands light railway) so access is perfect. The hotel itself is modern, quirky and fun. the rooms are exceedingly comfortable and... More

The room was comfortable. We had never stayed in an Aloft but will in the future. The hotel was close to the train into London and the staff was helpful in directing us on which trains to take to the attractions that we wanted to see.
