“Four Star Hotel with Five Star Service”
Reviewed 31 July 2009

I stayed at this hotel on TripAdvisor recommendation and it was all of that. The room was excellent (I was upgraded to a superior room as it was our anniversary). The service was friendly and helpful, from Check-In through the stay to Check-Out. The breakfast was excellent, though a little pricy if you went or the Braveheart Breakfast. I am always up for a challenge. the location was quiet but only 5 minutes walk from Tower Hill Tube Station. For me personally, the quiet was worth being removed from the Centre of London. For some, it might be a little too far away from the hubbub of the City. The only downside of the stay was that I had my daughter and boyfriend join us for the evening and when we asked whether we could have a pot of coffee and some tea at 11.15 pm on the Sunday, we were told there was no bar service and we could find tea and coffee in our room. The Service Notes stated that there would be bar service until 11.30 pm. That was the only hiccup in an otherwise perfect stay.

This is by far the best hotel or B&B I've stayed at in London, and I travel here regularly. Their international staff are impressive - from the quick to assist bellmen to the friendly and helpful reception personnel - and In particular, the breakfast staff, whose warm smiles make you feel right at home in the mornings. And the breakfasts were well above the norm in quality and taste! I particularly enjoyed smoked salmon on toasted but and grain bread, and Greek yoghurt with fresh whole berries in parfait cups.

The entire hotel has a fabulous, calm ambiance, with muted colors, good lighting and stylish furniture. Just walking in the corridor had a wonderful rich feel. The workout room was also well equipped.

The room had a super comfortable bed, 4 pillows and a duvet I didn't want to move from each morning. Layout, lighting, fabrics, furniture and bath facilities were both functional and fostered a totally relaxed feeling. The free in-room wireless worked perfectly. Plush towels, spa toiletries and the rubber ducky in the tub was a cute extra in the bath.

The location is superb for restaurants, the Tower, walking along the river and accessing other parts of London. After 3 nights, it was a disappointment to leave - the accomodations and the friendly personnel!

A fantastic base in London.

We booked in expecting a windowless room as we'd gone for the cheapy rate. We got a room on the 7th floor which has access to a balcony with great views over Tower Bridge. The room was clean, nicely finished and had free access to a list of DVDs. We didn't get to use these as we were out all night. Breakfast was attentive, the continental included fruits and yoghurts or you could opt for a menu item.
We managed to leave property in the room but one phone call to concierge on our way home got them back in the post to us.
There is no parking but this is fairly normal in Central London. Concierge have maps of nearby secure parking.

We spent a weekend in the Apex in London, we had previously stayed in a sister hotel in Edinburgh and thought it was fabulous so when we decided to go to London it was the obvious choice.

The hotel is in a good location a few minutes from Tower Hill tube station. The reception area and staff were both impressive, there was never any trouble helping with luggage or calling a taxi.

The rooms are well appointed, slightly smaller than those in Edinburgh but still comfortable, there was also a good selection of toiletries in the bathroom which was unexpected for the room rate we paid.

We had some cocktails in the hotel bar; they were delicious though slightly overpriced but nothing too outrageous, just hotel prices.

I have recommended this hotel to friends.

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel for a weekend break, it was very good value for money for a 4 star Hotel in London. We have stayed at other London Hotels and paid much more, but this one had the lot, price, location, service and cleanliness. We would definately go back. There are several pubs and restaurants in the immediate area so if you don't want to stay in for food and drink it won't be a problem (Weatherspoons is just round the corner, and a full English breakfast for £3.99 is a bargain). Butlers Wharf, just over Tower Bridge is also worth a visit for Restaurants and shops. Tower Hill tube station is only a 3 Minute walk away.
The local area is also good, felt quite safe walking out at night (some areas in London can be a bit dodgy). One thing we noticed was that some of the smaller local pubs and restaurants did not open Sat and Sun, they probably make enough money in the week from their business customers who work in the local offices.

After a lot of research we decided on this hotel. We stayed in the budget rooms which are in the basement. They were absolutely devine. I could have moved in! The only downside, which I knew anyway, was that there are no windows down there so you can't see what the weather is like! Area was perfect for us. Busy all throughout the day sightseeing etc so came back in the evening to freshen up and go for a drink and a bite to eat. Quite a few pubs around. Weatherspoons, All Bar One, Hung Drawn & Quartered, Pizza Express. Cannot recommend this hotel enough.

We recently stayed here for 3 nights and had a wonderful stay. We were upgraded from a Superior King to a Junior Suite which was LOVELY! The room was very big, a separate sitting area and bedroom. The decor was great...lots of attention to detail, the room was very clean and the bathroom modern. The mini-bar was all free...so rare these day...which was a great touch. I would highly recommend this place! On the downside, while the sheets were great (very soft), the bed wasn't very comfy...in need of thick mattress pad, and the towels were thin and very scratchy. However, it was easy to look beyond that because everything else was so nice. Another downside is the location, depending where/what you are doing in London. It was a bit far from most major attractions, but quite close to a few as well. I really enjoyed our stay here!
