Just what I needed

I tried to book somewhere in London City but anything for a reasonable price was fully booked. I saw this hotel and it looked great and was in an area of London I hadn't seen. The hotel was new, clean, rooms were generously sized and so well appointed. I thoroughly enjoyed exploring the docklands, riding on the sky train and relaxing at the hotel. It takes about 45 mins to get into London City from the hotel.

Average in a bad location

Hotel looks good, rooms ok but uncontrollable temperature so spent a lot of the night awake and sweating! I have stayed here afew times before but I won't be back...there is something that does not feel right about the place - plus it is in the back of beyond which makes getting to work a real pain. One note is the hotels "policy" to charge my card "just in case" despite my arriving at 1130pm and going straight to bed and straight out the next morning. Staff were rude when I questioned this "policy". Also told that they take £25.00 just in case I damage the room! Must be cheap fittings if £25.00 covers that....including the tv??. Anyway, would be good hotel if you are going to the excel - which I was not - wont be back unfortunately... cheers

Great value london hotel

Wanted to let everybody know what a great stay we had at the London Aloft Excel. Very modern with great facilty's would normally have great links to the transport network as the DLR station in right on the doorstep but this weekend due to engineering work and had to use a busses so might be worth checking with TFL before you book but I will be using this hotel again.

Excellent location - DLR trains / access to Tube at door

Location of Aloft London Excel is right next door to DLR station with light rail trains every 1 to 2 mins, making it really easy & convenient for getting around and connecting with the Tube. Room was excellent and very quiet. Staff were most helpful and friendly.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

A short walk from "Prince Regent" stop on the Beckon line. £7.70 per day each gets You anywhere in zones 1-4(DLR/tube& bus) which is anywhere you would want to go in london!
