"Lovely hotel next to Excel"
The hotel room was very nice although the bed was a bit too hard. Would have liked a mirror at the dressing table and plug. We like our breakfast but we're not prepared to pay £15 each. If the price was less more people would take the breakfast. We bought breakfast in the lobby shop
"Great Hotel with a nice W vibe - Right next to Excel Centre"
Nice hotel and Room was great, I might have received an upgrade. Hotel is located right next to the Excel centre, but not close to anything else. We arrived late, so restaurant was closed. The bar food was subpar, so be sure to eat before you get there if you arrive late. There is a kiosk in the lobby as well for sandwiches and fruit.
"Not outstanding but worth a repeat booking"
Aloft Hotel Excel To start at the end, we will probably stay here the next time we are working at Excel so the price/ value point is sound at £95 for the cheapest room. Against this, there is the strong feeling that the hotel is chasing pennies. We asked for a sheet as well the duvet and this was just dumped in a corner of the room. My wife fixed things, but should she have had to do so' I think not. There are minimalist coffee making facilities but don’t expect a biscuit – not even one! The room was large, for its type and class of course, and the double bed was comfortable. The wi-fi was fast and easily accessible and there was a decent working area too. These are big plus factors if you are working as we were. We asked for a quiet room and this request was met well with a room on the seventh floor at the end of the corridor. Our room overlooked the Docklands Light Railway so it was a good thing that the sound proofing was effective. The air con is quiet too so we had a peaceful night’s rest. Breakfast was £17.50 – each!!! – and so clearly we skipped this. Access to Excel was exemplary – literally a couple of minutes away. The hotel’s car parking was £16 for 24 hours which was fair enough for the area. The car park has 50 zillion cameras and the staff told us that consequently it is crime free. Beware of giving your e-mail address, even if you opted out of marketing material, because you will be bombarded with spam from the company. So, not a brilliant experience but good enough for us to make a repeat booking.
"Good location, modern and different!"
This is a different sort of hotel which some would call funky. Its very modern and very relaxing. A good choice if you are visiting Excel. The only downside is the changing room arrangements for the Swimming pool and Sauna. The lockers had no keys, There were not enough changing rooms or towels. A bit disappointing considering how well planned and stylish the rest of the hotel is.
My boyfriend took me here for my birthday and we had the best time! The room is beautiful! Staff are lovely! 100% recommend! There is a pool and steam room available for use and the bar within the hotel is lovely!!
