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
Comfortable, interesting and a great location.
Our fifth weekend at the Aloft. Comfortable, spacious rooms, great location (30 minutes from central London by DLR, interesting places to visit in Docklands and nearby Greenwich), the pool/sauna/steamroom and good breakfasts amongst our reasons for liking this hotel very much.
Andrew, gb2 night trip
Aloft London Excel
Fantastic for any MCM Comic Con goer
We stayed here as we were attending Comic Con. The Hotel was amazing- we were given a suite and the size worked for us. Rooms were very clean and the beds were very comfortable. When we checked in they asked if we would like an extra bed as there were three of us in one room- wonderful recommendation.
