Apex City of London Hotel
Ranked #88 of 1,076 Hotels in London
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 April 2014

I have stayed at the other two Apex hotels in London but this was the first time at the City of London. It won't be the last as I thought the location was very good with plenty of restaurants, breakfast bars and pubs nearby.

The hotel itself was the usual high Apex standard, with comfortable rooms, a spacious bathroom and Elemis toiletries-oh, and a duck. I usually request a twin room but forgot to do so this time. However, the staff managed to accommodate my wishes, which was appreciated. The staff were all extremely friendly, welcoming and efficient.

Room Tip: I guess the rooms are all of a standard size. There are no good views-but that's to be expected...

I like this hotel a lot, it has modern rooms, the service is great, technology works, wifi is free. The breakfast is of great quality, the standard breakfast has coffee, pastries, fruits etc., you need to pay an extra for warm food. Meeting rooms are geeat. The only disadvantage is that there's not a lot of sunlights in the rooms and meetting rooms, but it is manageable.

In a heart of London, this was very good hotel where price and quality matched perfectly. Rooms were clean, beds excellent and there were no noises heard from outside at all. Free wifi and breakfest included made this the best choise near the tower of london.

We had a fabulous week at the Apex City of London. The Jr Suite on the 6th floor was very, very nice, totally spotless, huge bed in a large bedroom, separate living room with all the amenities including a Bose sound system. (Of note we didn't hear a peep out of any other guests) Our room overlooked St Olaf's churchyard alas. So we missed the Tower Bridge view. Room service was prompt and well done - meal showed up quick and hot. Addendum restaurant was just fine at the end of the week when we just couldn't face another packed pub or trip on the tube battling crowds. As a tourist you're going to have to love the Tube since getting to central London locations is going to require line changes. No elegant way to get back easily so plan accordingly. But the hotel was an oasis of calm - despite the construction across the street that has removed the garden - right adjacent to the Tower. The staff was friendly, courteous, professional, and very helpful. Even brought us a pot of tea while we waited for our car to carry us to Heathrow. Overall a very nice experience and we would certainly go back. We did eat breakfast elsewhere (Liberty Bounds is around the corner, cheap and plentiful for a full English.) as others have noted. You WILL enjoy yourself here.

Room Tip: If you want a view I guess you're going to have to ask outright for one.

An amazing hotel. Spotless throughout. Beautiful bathroom with lovely products to use refilled daily. Beds really comfortable. No noise overnight. Two minutes walk to tube makes it a perfect location. Came for my daughter's birthday and they made her feel very special with lots of touches.
Will definitely be back. Do not hesitate to book this is an honest review

There aren't many critical things to say about this hotel, I certainly never had any about the accommodation or staff, I had a great time there and would recommend it. I just recommend you eat out to save money and get larger portions if that's your thing.

If you want a bit of luxury & to spoil yourself this is the hotel. Super big bed to lose yourself in.Was a bit expensive but ideal if you want that little bit extra. Ideally positioned near Tower Hill tube & handy for DLR too.
