“A business hotel, likely overpriced”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

I stayed there in business trip. No much choice on the hotel, and I don't pay but however I felt it is overpriced. Rooms are alright, nothing fancy, just classic for a business hotel.
Good point, breakfast are nice
Bad point, staff are not really friendly not accomodating, they just stick to their rules, not really wanting to help you out

Located in the "City" of London, this hotel offers a good quality of service, easy access from airports and quite practical if you are in the "City" for business matters.
- Bedrooms are quite English style furnished (carpet and old furniture, except for the tv), cosy athmosphere.
- Bathroom is large and clean.
- The hotel's restaurant is quite nice, staff is professional, maybe not as friendly as you can expect and but nevertheless they do the job and at the end of the day you are satisfied.
- Many bars & restaurants in the surroundings, as shops.

Staying over in London for a weekend we booked ourselves into the Grange City hotel which overlooked Tower bridge and the Tower of London. Everybody we came across in the hotel was extremely helpful and very friendly. The room we asked for overlooked the Thames and the Tower of London, It was extremely comfortable and clean. The location being only 200m from Tower Hill tube station was fantastic. I cannot be more complimentary about our stay and will reccommend this hotel to everyone.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the Thames and im sure the staff will help if possible. It was well worth...

I would not class this as 5* but had a comfortable stay .
A rather hectic reception area with a ten min wait each time we attended wether it was to check in or collect bags .
Smelly flowers in the reception area that needed the water changing.
The room was dark and small as expected for London , with no space to store luggage when unpacked.
A functional hotel let done by lack of attention to personal detail and basics like smelly flower water that lasted days and scratches and scuffs to furniture.

The room was clean and lots of cushions and plush curtains made it nice however it felt well used and with a view to the rear of the train platform you couldn't have the curtains open nor any fresh air let in as the windows are sealed.

It bailed us put of a sticky situation when our accommodation for the London marathon cancelled.
I would have been happy to stay here but not at premium rate.

It is however ideal for the tube and walking distance to many other things.

This hotel had an excellent location for our purpose: a weekend sight-seeing in London with colleagues. But also for business purposes it is well situated as the financial district is close by. Only a few steps away from Tower Hill underground station and with a breathtaking view over the Tower and Tower Bridge we very much enjoyed our stay. Although it is a modern hotel from the outside, the inside has a warm atmosphere The (executive) rooms are very well equipped and of a good size. There is a nice bar and breakfast was excellent. The staff was friendly. It ssems the hotel has a pool and fitness facilities but I preferred running along the shore of the nearby Thames.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with view over the Tower and Tower bridge

We have recently returned from a short weekend in London at the City Grange Hotel. We booked the hotel based on it's location in the Tower Bridge area, near two attractions we wanted to visit. The hotel is directly opposite the Tower of London and a couple of minutes walk from Tower Bridge. There is plenty to do and see around the hotel - including plenty of places to eat and drink.

The service we received at the hotel was excellent - we were made to feel extremely welcome from the minute we arrived. The room was very large, clean and had everything we could need. The pool and spa area is a nice extra and was a great way to relax after a busy day in London.

The hotel is within a couple of minutes walk from Tower Hill tube station on the District and Circle lines - this provides a quick way to travel to and from other areas of the city. Even in the evening we were able to travel into Westminster within 15 minutes.

Excellent hotel and would love to stay again.
