The Tower Hotel is outwardly very smart and gives the impression of an expensive place to stay.
Public areas are very 'swish' and check-in was efficient and quick.
The room was comfortable and spacious with fantastic views of London Bridge.
On the downside, the heating was very difficult to find - no thermostat, just a small switch by the bed (which I didn't see) to increase or decrease the temp?!!
Lighting was also difficult - 3 different low intensity lights but still (after 24 hours) haven't found the main light switch and no good if you want to work!
Breakfast was however very good.
Lastly, some things were a little 'tired' - new shower head in bathroom but 'old' regulator which is stiff and difficult to work. Also broken and unused washing line over the bath still attached to the wall despite not usable. Mirror in the bathroom was damaged - not a big thing but detracted from the appearance of 'upmarketness' which is otherwise apparent.
All in all I'd stay again.
