We recommend that you book accommodation such that if you need to cancel for any reason, you can do so at short notice, and obtain a full refund.
If you need a taxi to get to your accommodation, and the venue is open, ask at the Information desk (just inside the entrance) for a taxi to be called. If the venue is closed, ask at one of the adjacent hotels.
This page explores three booking options, with accommodation of increasing affordability. By using Airbnb (the third option) you could secure comfortable accommodation near the venue from as little as £20 per night.
(a) Hotels within walking or commutable distance of the venue
A map of the immediate area around the venue is here. The ExCeL London guide to hotels is here and leads to options within a maximum of a 30-minute train journey. There are eight ‘campus’ or ‘onsite’ hotels within a short walking distance of the venue, ranging from budget to luxury, with a combined total of 1,600 rooms. To reach these hotels’ websites, click on ‘Onsite’ in the grey panel to the left of the screen, then click on ‘View further information on hotels in this area’.

(4) Novotel London ExCeL
(5) Ibis London ExCeL

(3) Aloft London ExCeL
(6) Ibis Styles London ExCeL
(b) Hotel booking websites
There are a large number of independent websites through which you can book hotel accommodation, using various search criteria, and often find a better deal than when you book direct with hotels. A link to hotels near ExCeL on the Trivago website is here. You can sort hotels by popularity, rating, price and distance.
For those on a tighter budget, or preferring not to stay in a hotel, the search criteria available on Airbnb London are impressive. The site lists rooms, apartments, houses etc. owned and rented out by people, some of whom live in the same properties.
The search criteria include location, and you can specify the London Borough of Newham, in which ExCeL is located.
