Aloft London Excel
Very Good8.0
A loft excel is good
Ive stayed here many times and find it to be a good place to stay providing there is no event on at the Excel Centre, at which point their rates become greedy and that of a far higher grade hotel. Generally, and when I stay its good, but I wish the pool had a jacuzzi!

Quite a queue to check in but apart from that great. Spacious and clean room. Excellent facilities, especially pool. Very handy for excel and DLR

Very Good8.0
The actual rooms are fine but the swimming pool and associated sauna/steam have a lot to be desired. There's no luxury feel about it. Be aware they run swimming lessons for the public on a Sunday morning. And the changing areas are limited to two swing door closets. Weird. Shame. Wouldn't go back if wanting a spa hotel break. But if you're crashing after a concert at the O2 then it's perfectly acceptable.

Perfect for ExCel
Perfect for the ExCel with entrance outside main entrance. Very modern clean and well designed
David, gb1 night trip
Aloft London Excel
I had heard a lot of hype about Aloft but in reality I was left underwhelmed, nothing bad to say but equally nothing stood out as particularly impressive, save some money and go to The Moxy nearby for a better wow
