“Modern and cosy with good service”
Reviewed 27 August 2012

The hotel is a modern design situated near the river, Tower Bridge and the Tower of London, as well the financial district of the City eg, Lloyds, the Gerkin. It is very quiet over the weekend and on Sunday many of the local shops, bars and restaurants are closed. There are a few other quality hotels in the area. My experience was the same as many other reviewers have said about this hotel. Check-in and out was fast, staff were friendly and professional. Great range of options for a hot breakfast. Rooms a touch smaller then I might have expected, but not the bathroom. Room was clean, fresh, comfortable beds, over-stacked with pillows, view from the window unremarkable, just business offices. Nice range of shampoos etc, free and fast wi-fi, tea and coffee available in the room. Free papers at breakfast, but get up early, otherwise only Irish ones are available. I was very satisfied with every aspect of the service and in similar circumstances would certainly use it again. The only downside is that during the week anyone arriving by car would find it difficult to park near to the hotel, although I am sure they could give you local advice about this.

Despite the good reviews, I was still concerned that my experience would be different. How wrong I was. I stayed for 6 nights with my family in 2 rooms which were upgraded without having to ask. All the staff were courteous and friendly. The room was clean and service efficient. Although breakfast was pricey it was excellent and compared to the local Wetherspoons offering for £4.99 all I can say is you get what you pay for in London! The location was superb. Thoroughly recommended.

Had a brilliant experience at this hotel. Very geneous upgrade for our anniversary which was such a surprise. Fantastic check in staff; friendly and professional.
Lovely room with a great view of Tower Bridge and Tower of London. Clean and modern facilities.
Very quiet area over the weekend especially in the city district but lots of restaurants near the tourist attractions.
Great location for tube travel.
Breakfast was nice enough (included in our deal) but would not have paid for it independently as £15 is pretty steep for the basic continental breakfast spread and £19.50 for a cooked breakfast was again expensive for the quantity.
Recommend this place highly for business and leisure travellers.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms offer balconies and the best views.

Stayed for the weekend when visiting The Tate.Hotel has a great location near Tower Hill tube Station. Was given a free upgrade as have used the Apex before. Room was a good size with everything that you would expect in it from a 4* hotel.
Easy to walk to the Embankment path and then walk along the Thames path.
Hotel next door to St. Katherines dock, which was great for eating out.
Only bad point was the awful smell that came from the drains outside the hotel which prevented us from eating outside.
Travellers tip
Do the boat trip to Greenwich. Very good and very informative. Greenwich is definately worth a visit!

Clean and beautiful hotel. Big rooms and huge bathroom. Great location near London Tower, Tower Bridge and river cruises pier, helpful staff. A lot of gorgeous pubs around the hotel. Also near Tesco grocery store (open until midnight) and Barclay's bicycle hire station.

Great hotel, welcoming and helpful staff, room quiet, comfortable and clean. Continental breakfast excellent. Superb location for our visit to London. Would come again and recommend to friends. The hotel is ideally situated 2 minutes from Tower Hill station and the circle line which was perfect for our visits to Westminster, Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London. My son and granddaughter joined us for breakfast and, again, the staff made them feel very welcome. The hotel was easy for us to get to from Liverpool Street.

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room with twin beds and got what we asked for.
