Nice hotel, beware if you have a common name

Would recommend Wed, Dec 2, 2015
The hotel itself was very nice and high tech, decent TV, coffee machine, wireless mobile charger, Bluetooth speaker, HDMI input to TV etc. Good views over the docks. We also used the restaurant which was nice. However, the organisation left a little to be desired - they had assumed I was someone else, who lives in the USA, because of a matching name. Some confusion over whether breakfast was complimentary, and on check out initially tried to charge for the room which had been pre-paid. Other than that, an enjoyable stay and would visit again.

Comfortable

Would recommend Thu, Aug 27, 2015
I stayed at the Aloft because I attended a 2 day event at the ExCel and needed somewhere overnight to refresh. Location was obviously perfect being directly outside the ExCel . I found my overall stay very enjoyable. Room was large, clean and homely, I felt right at ease and was able to get a great nights sleep. Only issue was breakfast was not included in my £100 night stay and I ended up paying an additional £15 which is quite steep for a fry up and bowl of fruit. Would definitely recommend!

Would recommend Tue, Apr 14, 2015
Nice very clean airy room. Great views over the Thames. Very close to the DLR. Good location as the rail network is good. Close to the cable cars which gave great views on a lovely clear day. Staff friendly. Did not have the time to try out the swimming pool.

Fantastic London Getaway

Would recommend Sat, Feb 14, 2015
A hidden oasis that is comfortable, spacious, relaxing with great amenities (pool/sauna/steam room) that add a spa like ambiance on top of the super comfy beds and well equipped rooms. Great value for money!

Excellent Value!!

Would recommend Fri, Apr 18, 2014
Stayed two nights at Aloft and were lucky to be upgraded to a larger room on the eighth floor. I can honestly say I have never stayed in such a large and well planned room in a city hotel. Can't comment on food as we didn't use the restaurant but as well as the normal restaurant there was also an informal buffet style shop selling fruit sandwiches and breakfast to go. Although based in Canary Wharf DLR station was a minute walk away with easy access to Central London. You do have to pay for parking at this hotel but overall great value for money and I'd return. Two small gripes - temperature of water in pool was quite cold although lovely pool area. Cardboard cups in the room - good for takeouts but I would have liked China! Special thanks to Duty Manager Lionel for the upgrade. Very modern stylish hotel also very convenient for Excel

Money saver

Try to find parking somewhere nearby as the hotel car park is expensive!

good location

Would recommend Sun, Jan 13, 2013
The hotel is very close to a train station; you can reach Piccadilly Circus in about 30 minutes. The downside is that the hotel is in the middle of nowhere, difficult to reach by car and with few and very expensive restaurant not even very close. The only restaurant inside the hotel is not a good one.

A step above the rest

Would recommend Sun, Jun 3, 2012
Very helpful and resourceful staff. The room, while lacking bright reading lights, suited my needs with ample audio/video inputs for the tech-savvy. A better stocked self-serve food service would have been appreciated. Nonetheless, overall I would highly recommend this location as it was a thoroughly of high quality with a lovely decor and amenities—including a copy of Wallpaper magazine. Being so new meant that everything was in near pristine condition.

Dining

The adjoining restaurant service at Fede was poor and the food was overly salty. Staff seemed unable to cope with the most basic requests. I would recommend eating elsewhere.
