What an outstanding find the Hotel Indigo Tower Hill turned out to be! If you've been to London you know that most London hotels fall into one of two categories -- tiny and outdated or jaw-droppingly expensive. Sometimes both. The Indigo Tower Hill is neither.
The room I had -- room 301 -- was a palace compared to most comparably priced London hotels. Spacious and comfortable, with plenty of room to move around, the room was tastefully decorated (loved the wide plank floors and scatter rugs), outfitted with a four-poster bed and quality linens, and free wifi service that worked well on both my computer and my iPad. The bath was stylish and featured the plushest towels I've ever seen in a hotel, and the glass-walled walk-in shower was an excellent touch. The minibar stocked with free juices, bottled water, and snacks was a pleasant surprise as well.
The hotel staff was friendly and helpful and the lobby, while small, was inviting. The location is a mixed bag. It's walking distance to the Aldgate tube station and bus, which makes getting around Central London convenient since Aldgate is on the Circle Line. The hotel is also a 10 minute walk to the Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, and the south bank of the Thames. It's a fantastic location during the day.
The street on which the hotel is located can feel a little sketchy at night, thought no one actually bothered us even when we were returning to the hotel at 2 or 3 am. There aren't many local choices for restaurants or entertainment after dark, so get an Oyster card and be prepared to take the tube, or find a bus to Aldgate if you're coming back to the hotel after midnight. Fortunately, London really has public transportation figured out and it's very easy to get around.
I will definitely consider staying at the Indigo Tower Hill whenever I'm back in London. Highly recommended!
