We needed to be in London (Canary Wharf area) on a Sunday night and family were already booked into Aloft and raving about it. We checked the rates and were lucky to find the hotel running a deal for the room only at £71. The hotel is impressive from the outside and well-designed inside, with a good bar and small takeaway café for those who don’t have time (or want) a large breakfast. Check in was dealt with swiftly and we were given a great room on the top floor with a view of the airport - ideal for plane spotters like me. The rooms are a decent size, with plenty of space to move around in, a small sofa and two desks. There was no bath, just a walk in shower that was one of the best I have come across in any hotel. Also, top marks for the inclusion of a soap dish and numerous well-positioned plug sockets. However, there was no mirror in the bedroom and the pillows didn’t suit either my wife or me, but pillow preference is such a personal thing I appreciate it’s hard to keep everyone happy. We had a drink in the bar before heading to bed and it had a good vibe. You wouldn’t have guessed it was a Sunday evening. The cocktail list is decent and there are a suitable number of lagers available, although no ale that I could see so I had to settle for a pint of Tetleys. At check out we used one of the self-check in/out machines. We had a £1 charity donation added to our bill, which I don’t mind but there didn’t appear to be an option to remove it, nor any information about which charity would receive the donation, both things I would have expected to see. The machine would then not print our receipt, so a helpful member of staff had to go to the office and print us a copy. For these reasons, if there was no queue I would suggest checking out at the reception desk. Although the location will not work for everyone, it is perfect if you are flying to or from London City Airport, or if you need access to Excel. The hotel is also connected to the DLR, so you can get into Zone 1 very easily if you want to. I enjoyed our brief stay here and would happily stay again. Recommended.
