“Great Stay! Very helpful staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2014

Arrived late morning after overnight flight to find both of our rooms ready for early check-in -- a wonderful surprise! Hannah and Anna at the front desk were both very accomdating during our entire stay. Hotel sent card and candy to our room as a surprise for my husband's 50th birthday! Hotel is an easy walk to the Tower of London, the Tube station, tour bus pick-ups, and several neighborhood pubs. Safe neighborhood. Nice rooms -- very clean. Will return during our next London visit.

We stayed here for two nights on a quick visit to London. The rooms were spacious and quiet, the staff was friendly and helpful. The location was very close to London Bridge and a fun neighborhood bar area that the staff recommended. The bar snacks were perfect for our family - hummus, bread..just perfect.

Just see the title: I can say no more. Got a great rate for 5 nights - cheaper than the Premier Inn I usually stay in thanks to their 30% offer. Lovely location close to Tower Hill station and plenty of cafes etc for eating out as well as a small Tesco for provisions.

My wife and I visited early August 2014. The hotel is located on the East end of London, a stones throw from the Tower of London historical site. Staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The room, while small by North American standards, was very clean. There was complimentary snacks and bottled water and the WiFi in the room was the best I have ever had in any hotel anywhere in the world. As was stated by others, the Tower Hill tube station is a 3 minute walk away and it makes exploring the city effortless. I was not overly impressed with the food in the restaurant but there are several eating options around the hotel so it really was not a problem. Overall, the stay was well worth the price paid.

We stayed at the Apex in early August. The room was large and very clean. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The prices for food and drink were quite expensive, though. We did not eat at the hotel because of the high costs. Be aware that the area around the hotel appeared to mainly businesses and was quite deserted on the weekends. The hotel is very close to the Tower of London and is a easy walk of 5-10 minutes. I highly recommend this hotel.

Prosecco on arrival and a beatiful veiw was what i was first greeted with for my birthday weekend in london. The staff seemed like there was nothing they wouldnt do to make you stay less than perfect, they even wrote me a birthday card. The room was beautiful and the bed was soooooo comfortable. There isnt without a doubt that if i were to go to london again I will be looking to book myself a room!

Room Tip: A room on the top floor is a must so that you can see Tower Bridge at night if anything

We stayed at the Apex City of London in early August 2014. It was a first class experience and we would not hesitate to recommend the hotel. The location was fab. It's only 3 minutes walk from Tower Hill tube station and the area is safe and very pleasant. The staff were very professional and friendly. Excellent!
