Having stayed at the other London Apex at Tower Hill I was curious to try the new one at London Wall so when an offer came through (£102 for a deluxe room) I was happy to road test it.
As with TH, rooms are beautifully designed and furnished. Quiet despite lots of people staying, 2 TV's, and Blu ray/DVD player. Spacious bathroom with walk in power shower. Superb service at reception, bar and room service (breakfast). Friendly, charming staff all round. Discreet turndown service (I was out but 'gradually' noticed!). Choice of a la carte or full english breakfastfor £10. Efficient, effective air con/heating.
Wonderful beds and pillows.
Location is less 'handy' for tourists/leisure travellers however. 5 mins from Moorgate or Bank stations and numerous buses but no Tower of London on the doorstep. Lots of buses though.
Only v minor 'princess' quibbles - instant not real coffee, and no shower cap/cotton wool, complimentary paper delivered but not in bag! Not deal breakers however.
(I don't understand the comment about building - there is no building work going on and everything is still immaculate as you might expect of a hotel open for 3 months.)
Limited food choice (although room service is reasonably priced) - but you are 10 mins by bus or 20 mins on foot from reasonably priced restuarants at St Pauls and there is a scattering of restos and fast food places nearby.
I am looking forward to staying again as soon as diary permits.
