“Lovely hotel”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

My hubby booked this hotel for my birthday. Staff were attentive without being intrusive, the room was clean, cool and airy in the heat wave we are experiencing. They even brought me a birthday cake and a card. Definitely recommend!

This hotel was in a great location, beautiful room and friendly staff. We appreciate the facilities and tasty room service. Our only regret was not staying in this hotel the first time we were in London!

This is the first hotel which made me feel I that I have to post this comment online, as it was truly a wonderful experience that I had during my 4 nights stay. Excellent service from reception, bar/restaurant, room service to bellman. Hotel was flexible enough to rearrange my booking to an upgraded room throughout the whole stay at my last minute request. Room was spacious, clean, comfortable, well-equipped (bathroom amenities, sparkling water, very large TV etc.), simply perfect and quiet. Bar was amazing with delicious cocktails. Food was great. Staff were all exceptionallyl friendly.
Would recommend to anyone and would love to come back and stay there again.

Stayed here for 3 nights recently on a trip to London. Would not be my pick of london financial district hotels but it does the job.
Location is one of its best points, on a quite lane about 15 minutes walk from London Wall and about 10 minutes in cab from St Pauls. very close to tower of london.

Rooms. modern but tired already, i had a top floor room with a nice terrace. bathrooms were best part, scandanavian style with pale wood finish, nice. bed was fine, tv etc a bit dated now, a useless iPod dock with old style connector. no minibar, but a fridge at least. in room snacks free, which is appreciated

Service. Friendly, low key, efficient

Food. ok breakfast buffet. small ala carte choice, buffet was ok but not at continental european level. Room service food quite good, well prepared, tasty and quick
Ambiance, bit sterile, not a place to stay for a drink. local choice of restaurants limited
Well priced. overall fine for a quick sleep, not a place to relax and enjoy the lobby. not a place to bring family on a weekend break

Room Tip: all rooms are quite. top floor have a terrace

I cannot recommend this hotel enough, great rooms, exceptionally clean, comfortable beds, nice atmosphere, but the icing on the cake was the attitude of all the staff - welcoming and friendly! So rare to find such good service, they couldn't do enough for you, it was an absolute pleasure to stay here.

...offers this Apex 4 Star Hotel. Beside are Novotel, Doubletree by Hilton and the Grange City. Tube Station Tower Hill is 3 minutes away, 5 minutes to Monument and the offices in the City are in walking distance as well. So the location is very good business wise as well as for leisure (thats how I used it !). Unfortunately we had a room (No 515) for disabled people which means that the bathroom does have an accessible (floor-level) shower on the plus side BUT a very low sink. The room had a small corner window with a view in the backyard (no yard - more like a bunker feeling). Amenities have been from Elemis ! After a nap they refreshed the room and the towels (big plus !). We had a rate without breakfast so I can't comment on this. Staff at reception has been very friendly and helpful. The gym downstairs (I haven't used) looked good.

Room Tip: Don't get a accessible room !

Perfectly located around the corner from the Tower of London, this hotel is exceptionally clean and although the room and bathroom were small, all the necessary amenities were included. We had a lovely surprise upon our late (10:30 pm) arrival: a $10 voucher for the restaurant/bar. We used it immediately for 2 appetizers which were both delicious, and large enough for sharing. The front desk staff were helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: If you want a non smoking room, be sure to ask for it and then check the room before unpacking. We w...
