“Great value City hotel at weekends.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

I suppose West End Hotels can fill their rooms most of the year, but those in the financial district that is the City of London have to work harder to attract visitors when their business customers are absent at the weekend. Ignoring the value, this last weekend stay was supremely enjoyable. It helped that we were given a room up in the clouds with amazing views overlooking the Tower of London and Shard, which was greatly appreciated. The staff were friendly and efficient, the lift super fast (important when you are right near the top!), our room lovely, (albeit a surprisingly small bathroom for such a spacious bedroom), spotless and one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. Then there was the swimming pool! A full 25 metres and set up for lane swimming, (although that wasn't important as I mostly had it to myself anyway!). Such a treat for a City Centre hotel. Next time I am visiting London at a weekend I won't be looking anywhere else. I simply loved this hotel and it's location a stone's throw from Tower Hill tube station! A big thanks to all the lovely staff!

Room Tip: High as possible and looking south over The Tower of London.

Just spent a week at this hotel on a business trip to London. The location is fantastic, near the Tower Hill tube station and Tower of London. Also, a nice walking distance from London Bridge station, the Shard and St. Paul's Anglican Cathedral. The staff is very professional and the accommodations are well maintained but a bit small for US visitors. Overall, I would recommend highly.

Room Tip: If you want to check in before 3pm it is best to call ahead and arrange.

This a beautiful hotel in great location! Can be pricey but they also have some great offers so worth checking in advance! You are right next to Tower Hill tube station and also within walking distance of the thames!
Well worth paying the extra for a suite if it is a special occasion!
Staff are excellent and cant do enough for you!
Only downside is the cost of the cocktails £10 per cocktail - but to be fair this is average in London!
This is always our hotel of choice when going to london!

Room Tip: A suite with a tower bridge view - is perfect!

I was sent here on business in May 2014 and stayed for three nights. I got upgraded to a suite which was a large room with two double beds. I used to work by Tower Hill for 8 years and had been to the bar here but never stayed here. The location is great, it's right by Tower Hill tube and an easy walk to the river, the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, the bars and restaurants over the other side of the river at More London and (more importantly for me this time) the City. The hotel and the room were excellent and I really enjoyed the large pool, the spa facilities, and the gym. I found my room on the third floor a little noisy due to people in the street and the pub across the way. The free wifi is good. I would request to stay here again next time I am in London on business.

We came down to London for a special Anniversary dinner at the Guildhall. On our arrival we were informed that our room had been upgraded. The room was spacious and comfortable. We were able to enjoy fantastic views of the city overlooking the Tower of London and Tower Bridge. Superb location. Staff were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our evening so much we weren't able to sample the breakfast, but I'm sure this would have been up to the standard of everything else.

Just one minor practical point- do you think you could make the length of the wire on the hair driers slightly longer?

Our tour group of 42 people booked this hotel through our travel agent. We wanted a hotel in the center of the city near one of the underground terminals. The Tower Hill Station on the Circle line was only about 100 yards from the hotel entrance. The hotel rooms were HUGE, clean and modern. Breakfast (included in our package price) was everything you could ask with great service and wonderful breakfast tea. And if you wanted hot drinks, there was an electric kettle and coffee and teas in the room. Our tour bus was too long to get to the hotel entrance, but the staff and porters came to the street corner and took our large bags into the hotel and then delivered them to our rooms when they were ready. A special mention for the Isis Lounge - the drink prices were lower than other pubs in the area and the appetizers were delicious. I would definitely stay at this hotel again, and I recommend it for your consideration.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the Roman wall at the rear of the hotel. It is quiet and you can see the...

We booked a hotel through Last Minute Hotels and were so pleased that the hotel we got was Grange City Hotel. The staff were all very polite and friendly and the hotel reception was immaculate. We were informed that our room had been upgraded. Upon entering our room we were amazed as not only was the room huge with a big bathroom, massive t.v and armchairs but probably one of the best views you could want when staying in London. We were overlooking London Bridge, The Shard, The Gerkin and a great view of the rest of the city of London all of which were really close. There is also a lot of construction work being carried out which was very interesting to see. The room was spotless and the decor was very classy. The bath was lovely and big and the beds really comfy making for a great nights sleep.

We were very lucky to have this room for the price we paid (£109) and proves there are good deals out there.

I would defiantly stay here again as it is a great hotel in a great central location.
