Upon arrival, reception (Kay) were very polite and accomodating. I booked a room for 1, it was on the 4th floor (410), it had a King Bed and was facing north (which looks at the DLR train track, roads and neighbourhood. Everything was fine and clean. I had all amenities, including AirCon however the AC cold setting was not working. After 2 nights, I told reception about the AC and they sent someone over immediately to have it checked and fixed. It wasn't a quick fix so they offered to move me to another room and were very apologetic about the inconvenience. The new room (418) was bigger and nicer - it was facing south towards London City Airport and the docks/waterside which was very pleasant to view (apart from separate construction work going on outside the hotel). I used the hotel's swimming pool - it was lovely however the cleaners need to do thorough check - I found a plaster and a toy. My only issues and suggestions would be: the shampoo and shower gel products provided in the hotel. They are installed on the shower all in these dispensers and while they were working in my first room, the shower gel dispenser was broken and not working in the upgraded room. Also, the quality of the shampoo product was too dry for my hair, it was awful and they do not provide any hair conditioner. I think hair conditioner should be provided as well. The other issue was there being no cutlery provided in the rooms. You have to go down to reception to take it from the snack bar.

Aloft London Excel was an outstanding choice for our London vacation. The hotel was immaculate and very comfortable, with cold air conditioning, modern bathrooms, and spacious twin bed rooms. The tube station was very convenient, especially once we realized we could enter and exit the hotel at the back, near Docksiders restaurant. The area around the hotel doesn’t have many restaurants, but Docksiders was a good choice for dinner. There are also many places to order food delivery. It is connected to the Excel conference center, about 1/2 hour by tube to many sites in London and an hour taxi ride from Heathrow airport.

My wife and I booked a two night stay in this hotel during UK hottest heat wave hoping to cool off in the hotel pool. To our disappointment, the small pool in this hotel was occupied by a private swimming class that operated all all hours and hotel guesses have to squeeze to one side. first day had 1 student and second day had three student and the pool area where guess can use getting smaller and smaller. Eventually we gave up using the pool all together like other guesses. Better management of hotel facilities are need in this place, we felt we were short changed not able to enjoy the hotel pool the way we should. We tried to reach out to hotel management at reception, but only one duty manager were there and he was overwhelmed with a line up of guesses waiting to be served so I guess the pool is not his priority and left.
