I have stayed at other hotels in this location as its considerably cheaper than central London and convenient for both DLR and Clipper route into centre.

We stayed at the Aloft for a London city trip. We wanted to spend as much money IN the city, compared to at the hotel. So we stayed at the Aloft for almost 100 pounds cheaper, then any other SPG property in the centre of London. There is a easy connection with the DLR to the city, takes about 35-40...

A very clean well presented hotel with excellent facilities. We were greeted by a very friendly member of staff named Gabriel who was extremely helpful and approachable. Will 100% be returning in the future and have already started looking at the other Aloft hotels around the globe whilst planning our next trip !

Stayed before flying out of City airport. Good location within walking distance to the airport. Modern trendy hotel, with spacious rooms. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are kitted out with all the modern amenities you would expect. Staff are helpful and the breakfast is pretty good

Aloft is near the Excel center but at the other end to the bars and restaurants so the location is good but not great, it must be nearly 1K to the entrance to Excel. The hotel itself is OK, the rooms are well appointed and a good size, the hotel does not serve any lunch but the breakfast and dinner...
