“Perfect Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014

We have just returned from an overnight stay at the Apex Temple Court. We were celebrating my daughters 21st Birthday in London. We hired 5 rooms ranging from Deluxe to Junior Suites. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the staff were excellent. From the Gentlemen manning the concierge through to the gentleman who checked us all in to the lady who served us for breakfast. There were 11 of us with a range of ages nothing was to much trouble. the Hotel is immaculately clean, breakfast is delicicious. Ideally placed for getting to Covent Garden, Leicester Square or going across the river to the London Eye. The rooms all overlooked the Courtyard and ours being higher had a view of Big Ben and the London Eye. Thank you Apex Temple Court for a great weekend.

Room Tip: Pay slightly extra for a room which offers access to the club lounge.

We have never stayed at an Apex hotel before but certainly will again. Our family of four, with children ages seven and ten stayed for seven nights in connecting rooms. The bedrooms and bathrooms were very large and very modern. We weren’t expecting so much space for a London Hotel.

For American travelers, there are few hotels that are comparable. I thought maybe it could be compared to a Kimpton with only less theme and better quality materials. But it is also certainly not a five star hotel with only one bathroom sink, inexpensive bath products, slightly worn bedding and no turn down service. But the value you get for your money is fantastic.

What we liked:
Location: Fleet Street is a great location on the yellow and green Tube lines. You can take a ten-minute walk to either Temple or Blackfriars stops. You can also walk to Covent Garden in 15 – 20 minutes, walk to the London Eye in 30 minutes, Trafalgar Square in 25 minutes or less. There are lots of buses that drop off and pick up right outside the main entrance.
Food: We enjoyed the Nicholson’s pubs that were in the neighborhood and had many a breakfast and lunch at Eat., Starbucks, Pret a Manger or McDonalds (there are multiple locations within a 2 block radius). Plus there are lots of express supermarkets on the block. So don’t worry about finding quick food to grab….your possibilities are endless in this neighborhood. We did not eat at the hotel but lots of guests seemed to enjoy the food.
Room: As I already said, the bedrooms and bathrooms are very large. There is plenty of room and plenty of natural light. With connecting rooms they actually don’t connect like in the United States, meaning there is not a door in the middle of the wall that opens. Instead, an additional door closes off the hallway and that becomes the main entrance. You then prop open both bedroom doors. It’s hard to explain but it’s a nice concept and gives you a lot more space. The rooms had nice desks, plenty of storage, and great electric kettles. My girls enjoyed having complimentary hot chocolate and biscuits every day. We enjoyed the tea.

What we didn’t like:
Service: Service from the front desk staff was hit or miss. One concierge was helpful in getting us a taxi to the airport, another was incredibly unhelpful. When we asked for a good place to have breakfast we were told, “there weren’t any”. When we asked for a good pub to eat at we were told, “just walk down the street”, and when we asked if any pubs offered vegetarian meals (which they all do) the person said they would call us with recommendations but never called. So don’t expect top notch.
Beds: Our bed was not the most comfortable. To make a king they put together two twin beds….standard practice in Europe. But most places but enough padding on top that you don’t feel it is actually two beds. Here you could feel it every single night. It was actually uncomfortable if you accidentally rolled onto the center. This was after I requested a new bed for my husband. His first twin bed was about 3 inches lower than my bed (I guess it was an older bed). They cheerfully replaced the bed. But even beds on the same level proved to be a little uncomfortable. This is something they can easily fix. Also, some of our sheet had little holes in them. Again, time for an update.
Noise: We were on an outside corner so the only street outside our window was a small alleyway where taxis come and go. Still, it got noisy once or twice when the bars let out. Not a big deal, but a courtyard view might be quieter.

This is a great, modern London hotel. The price is a good value for what you get. The location although not directly in the tourist district was perfect for seeing all the sights. It is not a five star hotel but it ranks up there. I wish there were Apex hotels in the States.

We stayed for 4 nights here recently and had a fantastic stay. The check-in staff member was very friendly and offered suggestions on restaurants etc. The room was a good size, had a very comfortable bed and was very quiet. It was stylishly decorated and had all amenities you could need.

The location was excellent. It's more of a business district so very quiet at night, but only a short walk to Covent Garden, Soho and the theatres. It's also quite close to the Blackfriars and Chancery Lane tube stations.

Wifi was complimentary and very fast. Room value was very good when compared to similar hotels.

Overall we had a fantastic stay here and will definitely consider this hotel on any future visits to London.

Stayed here for 2 nights last week. From start to end it was a great stay. Bedrooms nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. We paid the extra charge for breakfast, it was worth it, it was a five star breakfast experience. I love when a hot breakfast is served to you, as you like it. (This self-service concept is creeping into 5 star hotels, it's just not on!) The bar was stylish and cosy. All of the staff we met were very friendly and helpful, very attractive too I must add.

Great hotel for easy access to central London and short walk to lots of sights and attractions.

We stayed for two nights at the Apex Temple Court Hotel. The whole experience was enjoyable and the staff worked really hard to be courteous and helpful.
The cooked breakfast was inclusive for us and very enjoyable.
We upgraded to a superior room and this gave us access to the Exclusive club lounge which allowed us free snacks, drinks etc 24/7.
The hotel is modern in décor and well placed for Theatres in Drury Lane and Aldwych, all in walking distance. - 13 minutes.
London Eye etc only 20 minutes relaxed walk.
We will definitely be booking again!!

centrally located, excellent service.
We skipped the breakfast, because we thought it is much too expensive for a morning dine.
bed.the room is fully equipped, and very comfortable
the staff is very helpful, with exact directions as to how conduct a walk around tour.

Room Tip: the inner court is preferred, away from Fleet street

Stayed here for a birthday with my boyfriend, and it is absolutely amazing!! reasonably priced (which is very rare in london). It's in a great location, only a ten- fifteen minute walk to covent garden, and a short walk to the tube station. The service was brilliant and the rooms were immaculate! very modern decoration, extremely comfortable beds! spacious, and a MASSIVE bathroom (with a free rubber duck which we took home as a souvenir haha). We had the continental breakfast which was delicious and plentyful! Also after getting back from going out for a meal we sat in the bar and had cocktails, they were gorgeous and reasonable! Would recommend this hotel to anyone and would stay again myself without hesitation!
