Aloft Excel was my favorite hotel in London in the past. I have visited the hotel several time since 2010. This time, one day before my stay I asked for an early checking. I did not get an answer. The hotel is doing very well and they don’t care.

Got this hotel on a Hotwire deal for just under £90. We were allocated a suite like room with a river view. Absolutely amazing. Very comfortable bed, great views, enormous shower, decent coffee in room, free water and really pleasant helpful staff. What more could you want!
