“Exceeded my expectations ....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2012

and they were high at the outset! Great location, great friendly, helpful staff who couldn't do enough for you but weren't fawning. The room was great with luxurious down filled pillows and quilt which made for a very good night's sleep. The bathroom is wow!, and I want one like it at home. The breakfast choice was wide and varied and of very good quality, one of the best hotel breakfasts I have ever had.

We booked on a Travelzoo deal and only wished we had booked for more than the one night.

The only tiny disappointment was that on check-in, we were told our room had a view of Big Ben, we didn't, but did have a view of The Shard.

We hope to return to this hotel in the future.

The Apex Temple Court Hotel in Fleet Street was offered on Travelzoo at a very good rate and is a newly built hotel. As it was my husbands birthday, we decided to have a London break away and booked.

The hotel is tucked away behind office buildings in Bouverie Street and is difficult to find, however once found we entered a court area were we left the car to unload.We were greated by friendly staff and upgraded to a Superior room! The only downside was that the nearest car park was about a mile away as the one next door is closed on weekends. The cost is £35 for 24hours.

The Hotel however, being off the main street is very quiet and we had a good nights sleep in a very comfortable bed. The view is not very good as it looks into office blocks and we had to keep curtains closed for privacy - that said as we were only in the room in the evening this did not bother us. The west End and Covent Garden are only a 15 minute walk away but if you go by cab please tell them that the hotel entrance is in Bouverie St as many cabbies do not know where this new hotel is located.

The room itself was wonderful -obviously new, airy and really well appointed with very plush fixtures, well thought out furniture including fridge,safe and the usual Tea making facilities. It also had a lovely on -suite with a bath and shower, fluffy towels, bathrobes, slippers toiletries and even its own plastic duck for the bath!!! Very roomy - nice to have space to put your toilet bags!!
We ate in the restaurant in the evening after seeing an afternoon show. There was a reasonable choice of food which was served well. However my husband requested Olives (twice) and these only arrived during the main course! We were satisfied although we thought that the 12.5% optional service charge was a little high and gave a more reasonable gratuity.

Breakfast was not included in our offer and not having many good options close to the hotel decided to stay there. The full English was £19.50 and other items such as beverages or rounds of toast were individually priced, making an expensive breakfast if you wanted juice and a cup of tea!

The Hotel staff were very happy to look after your baggage for you after vacating your room and as the weather was sunny we decided to spend the rest of our time left on a tour bus. The Big Bus Tour is a great way to see London. For around £30 you can hop on, hop off all day. The blue tour in my opinion is better than the red offering a recorded comentary, free river cruise, free walking tour plus vouchers off attractions, restaurants and shopping.

We stopped at St Pauls Cathedral for a while, which was beautiful and decided to lunch at Cote Brasserie nearby (26 Ludgate Hill) before returning home. Here we had a perfect lunch outside whilst people watching!

I cannot say what the hotel's rates are normally because of our deal with Travelzoo but it was fantastic value for a London Hotel of this calibure.

It was a wonderful weekend in a stunning new hotel where we soaked up London sights as well as the sunshine after weeks of constant rain. Most welcome!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 121 which was very roomy and quiet.

This hotel is absolutely lovely. The staff are helpful and polite, the beds are so comfortable and the shower is excellent. We had a room facing the courtyard and so it was very quiet. Staying here set the bar pretty high for the rest of our trip and so we were disappointed whenever one of our hotels wasn't a good as this one. The breakfast is a bit average though and there weren't many good options close to the hotel.

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room and we didn't hear any noise at all

Stayed here when it had just opened and feared that it may have the usual teething problems, nothing could be further from the truth!. A lovely room with nothing too much trouble for the friendly reception staff. Very clean and highest quality bedding etc. We had a 'travel-zoo voucher so it was fantastic value for a london hotel, not sure what it is like normally on price?.

Stayed here for 5 nits on business recently and found it to be one of the best values in London. The rooms are large, quiet, extremely clean, and very nicely appointed. The bathrooms are beyond compare with a tub and shower. The staff could not have been more helpful, especially when the shower overflowed on the first morning. They quickly and efficiently moved us to another room without question. One caveat - tell your cabby to go to 50 Fleet St. Since many of them don't know where this new hotel is located.

I stayed here in early May for two nights whilst on business. In my experience, it's very rare that you find a hotel of this quality in central London for what was a fairly reasonable rate. Compared to some of the over-priced dross that passes for high quality accommodation in the capital this place is hard to fault and is ideally positioned for both the City and Covent Garden/Strand.
The staff were extremely friendly and genuinely keen to make my stay as enjoyable as possible. The room was first class with an excellent walk-in shower and wide screen HD TV with all the channels you could wish for. I ordered room service three times (one dinner/two breakfasts) and the quality of food and speed of service were exemplary. The only slight - and it was slight - complaint related to the UHT milk in the room: I tried three servings and each was on the turn. I'm sure if I'd have raised this it would have been rectified immediately.
I would have no hesitation in returning to this hotel.
