About Aloft London Excel, London

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.

Amazing stay
A Traveler, us1 night trip
Aloft London Excel, London
Very Good8.0
My room was clean and comfortable with a good view of the bay. The windows in my room didn't open, and I always wish this was something you could filter by when booking hotels - I need fresh air! Anyway, the pool was swanky and the gym was clean too. It's near a train line, so while the location wasn't so central to the major London attractions, you could get around easy enough. And there's a decent 3 mile run right outside the hotel.

New fave hotel in London
Very nice, convenient to the DLR. Great service. It was quiet, but nothing going on at the convention center so i'm sure that was a factor.

Spacious Room in Docklands
This is a spacious new hotel in the Docklands area. The hotel is a ways out from the city, however there is a subway (DLR) stop that connects to all the other stations in London. My experience is that we are always taking multiple trains in London, so the distance for this wasn’t noticeable. This has been my best hotel experience in London and was extremely affordable.
