Aloft London Excel
Transportation Options

Our name says it all—Aloft London Excel —so our location’s kind of a no-brainer. Located in London’s buzzing Royal Docks area just minutes from London City Airport (LCY), we’re most easily reached by car. Hop on the highway and you’ll be here in no time! Plus, wheels give you the flexibility to zip around to nearby businesses, area hotspots, and London’s lively attractions with ease.

If you plan to stay local, a car’s not entirely necessary—just grab a cab from the airport or hop on the Docklands Light railway (DLR) for a quick trip to our door. Once here, our free shuttle will zip you to the bustling business centre of Canary Wharf. If you want to head into London’s city centre, jump back on the DLR—the station is just 2 minutes from the hotel!

Once you hit the city streets, London’s great on foot. When you get tired of hoofing it, there are plenty of cabs, transit options, and tours. Call the hotel or stop by the front desk and we’ll give you the full rundown.

If you are traveling by car, please see driving directions, from the airport or any other location.
