Apex City of London Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 September 2009

My fiance discovered this hotel on line and we based our booking on the outstanding reviews it had previously received. These were fully justified and our 3 night stay taking in the sights of London was superb. On checking in the staff at reception were particularly friendly and upgraded us to a luxury room at no extra cost! The room turned out to be fantastic with an extremely comfortable quality 6' bed, full sofa and a huge flat screen TV. The sound system even had speakers mounted in the ceiling of the bathroom! The sound insulation and black-out curtains ensured undisturbed nights of sleep and the whole place was spotlessly clean with a very high standard of decor. The linen was Egyptian cotton and there were even bath robes and slippers provided. The dining room was first class with discrete, friendly, cheerful and thoroughly professional staff and the continental breakfast splendid. Whilst this hotel is located only yards from the Tower of London it is some distance from the majority of London's 'sights' and 2 tube journeys from the West End theatres. This is the only aspect that we can criticise and we've tried hard to be as honest as possible. This hotel gets our 'thumbs-up' and is highly recommended.

Our first stay at the Apex City of London in August was most enjoyable.
We were pleasantly surprised with a room upgrade, which unfortunately we weren't able to make the most of as we were out and about.
The room was spacious, tastefully decorated, extremely comfortable and with a fantastic bathroom (big bath and separate walk in shower).
The Tower Hill tube station is nearby, but we preferred to take the bus number 15, which takes you past St Paul’s cathedral right into central London, with the bonus of a few of the old buses which I miss so much!
The staff was friendly and helpful.
Highly recommended!

I chose this hotel after reading the Excellent reviews on here, and i wasn't disappointed!

My girlfriend and I stayed for the night on Bank Holiday sunday whilst visiting the Natural History Museum and the Tate Modern. The location was perfect for us as we came into Fenchurch street, which is about 2 or 3 minutes walk away...its at the end of the road opposite The Grange Hotel (next to the back entrance of Fen Street), and is also about 5 minutes walk to Tower Hill Underground. As we had Travelcards we used the Underground to get South Kensington (11 stops on the District/Circle lines) for the Natural History Museum and also later in the evening to Leicester Square (6 stops to Embankment then 2 stops to Leicester Square). The following day we took a nice stroll along the Thames to the Tate Modern via the Millenium Bridge, i would say its about a 25 minute walk.

As a few people have mentioned, we received a complimentary upgrade from City King Room to Superior Room, which we loved...it was very spacious, unfortunately the view wasn't but that didn't really bother us. We were very comfortable and loved the Bed, Bathroom, the big flatscreen TV (had the main Terrestrial channels aswell as Sky Sports 1,2 & 3, plus the News channels and Foreign ones) and the general ammenties...aswell as the Rubber Duckie in the Bath too! The Bath was really big, and with myself being quite a big guy was really comfortable in it. The Shower was also huge, easily fitting 2 people in if that takes your fancy! We paid the general price for the hotel of £99 which didn't include breakfast, i thought this was a really reasonable price for a lovely hotel in a good location. I did see some deals later that did include breakfast for a similar price so would probably do that next time as i did think the breakfast was expensive (£12 or £13 i think)...we ended up just eating out across the road in the Wetherspoons pub (Liberty Bounds) which is about a 1 minute walk to the back entrance to the right as you leave the hotel, if you are happy with a Wetherspoons then i would suggest it as its one of the better ones i've been too, plus its cheap food and drink.

I thought the receptionists and concierge were very friendly and helpful aswell, and was very impressed with the casual seating area (lots of sofas and comfy seats) where i saw people using the free Wi-Fi on their Laptops. We ended up taking our drinks from the Bar to our room, but would have easily been comfortable sitting there.

Overall i would definately use this hotel again, as we both loved it! Plus after reading some positive reviews of the City Budget Rooms (Basement rooms), would consider this as the price is very reasonable! But i suppose if you are after a room with a view then this wouldn't be your thing.

5 minutes walk from Tower Hill, located in the city of London. Reception (and bar area) very welcoming and modern.
Room slightly on the small side with and old fashioned TV (LCD would be more appropriate) but bathroom area very roomy.
Bar and restaurant get lively in the evening, slight downside was the 12.5% service charge on ordering drinks, although this is discretionary.
Would recommend and would stay there again.
