We stayed 2 nights at this hotel as part of our 5th anniversary and have nothing but good things to say. If you are arriving from central london it takes 20-30 mins to reach on the tube. When you leave the tube station at Prince Regent just turn right at the top of the stairs and you can enter the...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

Stayed for one night with family, booked two rooms. Located two mins walk from Prince Regent DLR station it's very easy to reach. Check in was quick, efficient and the staff both polite and very helpful. The rooms, adjoining, were more than adequate with all the facilities you'd need for a business or personal stay. For London the room sizes...

Stayed for a couple of days just after easter 2017. The hotel is easy to get to from the DLR prince regent stop. The building looks really cool. The staff on the welcome desk were friendly and efficient and the room itself was lovely. Double bed, bathroom and kitchen behind. Good views out looking north. For us staying two days...

Great hotel for one night stay etc. Breakfast was nice, alot to choose from and can eat plenty. Very clean downstairs. Room was very average hardly any channels on tv etc. Our toilet was disgusting, my husband cleaned it. Also think bar staff need to cheer up. Reception staff lovely. However I would recommend staying but only 4 short period....

The location is no issue about 30 mins from london bank station with direct DLR line or 7 minutes to jubilee line at canning town. Very modern hotel with huge twin room and huge bathroom with all mod con facilities - desk,...

This hotel generally has good facilities, and looks great but is over rated, and over priced as it lacks in customer service, the staff are very unprofessional and casual. Our room was not clean when arrived, it featured dirty pillow stains. It took 45 minutes to even answer to a room service, food arrived (just thrown in to ) a...

Outstanding value for the money; the Docklands area is revitalised and there are several reasonable restaurants close by. It is NOT close to Heathrow, so allow 90 minutes minimum to get here from LHR using the Heathrow express, the Jubilee line and the DLR. We stayed in a quiet room on the fourth floor - beds were larger than normal...

Stayed at the Aloft as part of Show & Stay deal, from check-in to check-out had no problems. Room excellent, breakfast first class, we even had time on the morning we were leaving to walk to the Emirates Cable Car and take a round trip. Would recommend and would definitely visit again.
