We had two nights at this hotel for a London break and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is well positioned near the Tower of London and Tower Bridge, easily accessible in a few minutes on foot from Tower Hill underground or Docklands Light Railway, and just off the number 15 bus from central London. It also offers some car parking spaces.
We particularly liked the light, modern feel of the hotel from the glass atrium reception to the fabulous roof top bar with views of the Tower of London, the Shard, the Gherkin etc: a great place to sip a mojito on a summer night.
We booked a standard room with an optional upgrade to executive and were pleased to get the upgrade on arrival. For an extra £30 a night this gives a bigger room on the higher floors, with bathrobes, large shower, table and chairs and floor to ceiling windows plus it includes breakfast and all-day access to the executive lounge. The lounge offers free coffee, tea and soft drinks all day and complimentary wine and nibbles from 5pm to 8pm: a nice extra.
The room was quiet and the bed comfortable and there was plenty of wardrobe space and cupboards, hair drier, iron, free mineral water, tea and coffee, plus a minibar. Complimentary Wi-Fi, air conditioning and an Apple iMac entertainment system complete the package.
Breakfast offered a choice of hot meals, pastries, cereals, fresh fruit, ham, cheese etc, all very good, which could be taken in the quiet of the executive lounge or in the busier restaurant.
We found this hotel very good value for money and a relaxing base for sightseeing, with a walk over Tower Bridge and by the Thames recommended. There are also boat trips from the pier and open-top tourist buses. St Katharine's Dock, with its lively mix of pubs and restaurants is very near as well.
