About Novotel London ExCeL

Contemporary hotel at the ExCeL Exhibition Centre

Convention convenience
A recent addition to the Docklands hotel scene, Novotel London ExCeL puts you right across from the ExCeL Exhibition Centre – perfect for conference-goers. The Docklands Light Railway, steps away, will whizz you into town in half an hour; London City Airport is a quick cab ride away.

Across the Thames
You can hop in a taxi for a 6-minute ride to The O2 arena and the upscale shops, restaurants, and businesses of Canary Wharf. Or take a trip in the Emirates Air Line cable car, which swings over the Thames to Greenwich, with its naval history and museums.

Breakfast on the water
You can take breakfast on the terrace, watching boats coming and going in Royal Victoria Dock below. You can stay open for business thanks to the business center and conference room. Want to freshen up? Read a free newspaper while taking advantage of the laundry facilities.

High-tech rooms
Rooms are spacious and contemporary, with everything you need for a business trip or vacation. Free WiFi and large desks make working easier, and LCD TVs and minibars help you unwind.

Easy to get to o2 arena
Staff where very helpful. Ideal location for o2 arena and emirates air-line crossing. Very clean and tidy. Room smelt of freshly laid carpet!

Very Good8.0
Great hotel - pity about the lack of aircon!
Generally a good hotel in a convenient location. Staff are always welcoming. Restaurant always willing to accommodate. Only downside - no aircon only heating in rooms - so the rooms are way too hot! Had to open the window, which means curtains as well to let air in and then is was light, hot and noisy.
Joanne, gb1 night trip
Novotel London ExCeL
Good location shame about the lack of sleep
Hotel chosen for it's locality to the O2, checking in was easy and professional.Unfortunately due to the bed I was lucky to get only a couple of hours sleep. The bed was too soft for my liking and it gave the impression I was sleeping down hill and giving me some circulation issues in my legs. It was only when I turned 180 degrees that I got the sleep desperately needed. My wife also found the bed uncomfortable and had a disruptive night.
