    Very close to metro station. Facility is good! The bed is comfortable. Stuff is enthusiasm and willing to help. In a word, it is a very good place to stay. If have chance, we will stay in this hotel again.

    The location is a little bit far away from London city center, anyway, is still a good place to stay if you can bear 30 to 40 mins on traffic everyday. The other thing is it does not has a rubbish bin in the room.

    Superb

    Amazing quality of hotel. The rooms were spacious with oversized King Size bed, one of the best night sleep I have ever had. Hotel was quiet at all times, layout well thought out. Facilities second to none.

    Location is slightly away from everything but I would compromise this for its quality. Hotel is located on DLR Prince regent Station which is undergoing repairs most weekends and ends up being operated by a bus service. DO NOT LET THIS PUT YOU OFF

    The hotel is located next to the City Airport. You can take a taxi cost around £5 to the hotel. The DLR train station located just 1 minute walk from the hotel. This make it easy excess to London. The room was very clean and came with comfortable bed, large LCD tv and a fridge. For those taking the CFA exam in Excel London, this is a perfect location for staying. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I will definitely stay in this hotel again.

    None. Overall very satisfied.

    Very good

    Nice room, good bed and shower, next to dlr. Free fast WiFi. Small 24- hour shop for breakfast or snacks. Very friendly and helpful staff.

    Loud music in the hallway, elevator, swimming pool and even in the sauna. Not very relaxing... Rude bartender. No privacy in sauna area due to large windows.

    Aloft hotel is ultra modern, but, at the same time, cosy and warm. The design is very beautiful, everything is so natural and harmonious. The staff is adorable - very kind, competent and helpful. I will definitely be back!!!

    Fabulous

    The bed was extremely comfortable and the modern décor and facilities were good. The pool, gym and sauna were very pleasant.

    Hated the awful restaurant called Feed on 2nd floor. Quality of food and prices were disgusting and the service wasn't great even though the two waitresses were pleasant. Although it's a separate business to the hotel, it looks like it is part of it and therefore, affects the hotel experience.

    Rooms, location and view

    Breakfast was overpriced and not very good quality. The selection was poor. The sliced fruit, melon and pineapple was har/unripe. As the quality of the bread for toasting was abysmal. I witnessed your staff unpacking White and Wholmeal Kingsmill 'pap'. For the £15 perhead you can and should do better. Overprices shop. Two Mars Bars £3, really! 60-70 p each perhaps, £150 each, never.

    Rooms where excellent and staff were very friendly and helpful.

    Trying to contact Aloft wasn't easy by telephone and if I had one question they could not answer instead of finding out by asking a manager they put me thew another person and then another it was very higaldy- picaldy it took almost 3 hours to get the answer I was looking for and between this I was also contacting Booked.net to try and get an answer which I did and I also got the lady from Booked.net to try and it almost took her 20-30 mins to finally get an answer out of them to. The price of food was exstorsion on toast at the restaurant £15 for classic fish and chips the portions where excellent nice big fish and chunky chips but my friend said she has better fish from our local chippy.
