About Aloft London Excel

Trendy Thames-side hotel linked to ExCeL Convention Centre

ExCeL-lent location
Set in London’s up-and-coming East End, the trendy Aloft London Excel puts you right next to Prince Regent Docklands Light Railway Station and less than 2 miles from London City Airport. Direct access to the ExCeL Convention Centre gives the hotel a competitive edge.

New heights
You’ll be a quick trip from Canary Wharf on a free hotel shuttle service, and within a 10-minute cab drive of The O2 concert arena. If you’re not afraid of heights, why not gaze down at the River Thames from the Emirates Air Line cable car? The terminus is a 15-minute walk west.

High-tech hotel
Guests appreciate free WiFi throughout the hotel, one of many high-tech features. The indoor pool and 24-hour gym will have you working up a sweat in style. If a gym workout is the last thing on your mind, you might prefer the lounge bar with its Friday night DJs. The hotel also has a restaurant, as well as a 24 hours grab-and-go food and beverage area.

Plug and play
The Aloft Hotel London Excel’s loft-like guestrooms are designed for tech-lovers, with a plug-and-play connectivity station to charge your smartphones and tablet devices. Other snazzy details include 42-inch flat-screen HDTVs, roomy walk-in showers, and Bliss Spa toiletries.

Aloft London Excel
Easy access to ExCel and London proper
I have stayed in this location twice now. Each time I have been very happy with the hotel. The hotel sits right on the grouds of the ExCel London in whcih many conventions and events are held. The hotel is far enough outside London that there is no city noise. The underground station is only a 3-5 minute walk from the hotel and provides quick and easy access to anywhere in London. The room are very clean and very nice. The restaurants connected to the hotel are way over priced however, and you would be better getting dinner from one of the many restaurants that are within a 10 minute walk.

Aloft London Excel
The hotel was lovely and the staff were extremely friendly. We were visiting for a convention at the Excel and the location was perfect for this. The hotel was easy to get to by tube although there didn't appear to be much in the local area with regards to eating out but that wasn't too much of a problem for us during our stay. Would definitely recommend the hotel and would stay there again.

Shame about the Chocolates
Turned up to the hotel and have to say that the checkin was quick and without any hassle, the room given which was a double was a lovely size and there was even chocolates and strawberries on the table. Unfortunately these were not for me and had to get them removed as I didnt’t no now how long they had been there. The only gripe about the room was that the blinds were very difficult to open and close and the one cord did break whilst using. Neither of these things detracted away from a lovely stay and both the issue around the chocolates and the cord was resolved really quickly.
