“SMASHING !!! Your loss if you stay elsewhere...”
Reviewed 22 June 2012

Convenient, modern, full-service, clean, comfortable ... what more do you need?

This is an excellent hotel, almost right on the Thames River, in the South Bank section of London, convenient to the Tube/Underground/subway (5 min walk), Tower Bridge (5 min walk), Tower of London (just across the Tower Bridge = 10-15 min walk) - where Crown Jewels are kept, and so close to so many other destinations including Tate Modern museum, HMS Belfast warship, market, shopping. Yes, you will need to take the Tube to other tourist attractions, such as Westminster Abbey, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, etc..... but it's not a long ride and the system is easy to figure out ... soooo ez. The hotel is located amongst some office buildings, and City Hall is nearby ... but the views along the river walkway looking across the Thames - at the famous 'Bloody' Tower of London (the Beefeaters tour is a must, but get there early!!), and the Tower Bridge (especially at night) is magnificent ... a very icon of London. You're right there !

As for the hotel ... wonderful, friendly greeting by the front-desk upon arrival, entering a large open-air lounge/seating/at-night clubby-bar area. The charming, helpful staff moves efficiently, and check-in was a breeze - a minute or 2. It is a modern hotel, fairly recently built/renovated - very new feel to it, amongst some office buildings and some retail nearby. We had a very wonderful rate for a standard room (no Executive room), so we can give you the scoop on regular rooms. They featured a very contemporary feel, punctuated with muted colors of browns and whites but a dash/splash of orange, providing warmth and relaxation. The room was a good size, given London's reputation of small hotel rooms. Very comfortable King-size bed, with all the classic accoutrements of TV, in-room safe, desk & chair, club-chair, end-table, plenty of closet space & drawers. The bathroom was also a good size ... featuring an oddly smallish sized tub, but sufficient, and plenty of 'throne' room. Basic toiletries were neatly available next to the sink. Very clean and comfortable room. Not much of a view ... but we weren't there to soak up views from the hotel.

Our fave: the daily breakfast (included for our stay). Buffet style (hot & cold food) with attentive wait-staff to provide coffee, tea, juice service - full tablecloth and linens service vs. paper napkins or bags, if at all, at other hotels, made for a great, relaxing start to each day. From bacon, sausages (English ones too) & eggs of multiple styles to croissants & breads of all kinds (self-toasting available), to yogurts, cereals, fresh fruits to croissants & danishes.... delicious!!! The variety did not change much (small changes) from day to day, but with such diversity, we had different breakfasts each day.

We would recommend this hotel to all ! The staff was excellent, providing daily warm service, a smile, and assistance, if needed. The convenience factor was not even a factor. It's easy to get around (we cannot speak to parking, as we did not drive there) from utilizing the Tube to local bus to just walking, and absorbing all that is London. We would definitely stay here again and again.

One caveat that we were not overly fond of, but understand somewhat: after our return home, we had (2) emails waiting for us.... one from the hotel asking us to rate them (especially highly) on TripAdvisor, and another from TripAdvisor itself asking how our stay was at this hotel. We hope they're not in 'cahoots' to drive the reviews. A little oft-putting to be nudged/pushed to rate them, but was going to do it anyway. Note to hotel: Let your product stand on its own! The positive results will come streaming in if you continue the great work. It's a wonderful product and location.

Happy Hotel-ing !

My kitchen team will be so pleased to hear that you enjoyed the daily breakfast so much.

Arrived in London on Friday afternoon to spend the weekend shopping - with my girlfriend. Found the Hilton online and get a great deal on a weekend package.

I was slightly concerned that the hotel was located a bit too far away from the center of London; however, there was a tube station only minutes away from the hotel = you could get anywhere without any problems.

The hotel itself is modern, sleek but still with a warm feeling. Didnt have breakfast included - so cannot comment on the quality of the food, but judging from the service level of the staff, and the general state of the rooms & public areas I would almost be that it will be good.

Having a somewhat cranky back, one key aspect of a hotel for me is how good their beds are (meaning, the mattress) - and if you suffer from back ache you will not have any problems getting a good nights sleep at this hotel.

Enjoy!!

Although the Hotel is a bit away from the normal Hotels where one would stay on business, I always prefer it exactly for this reason. I recently stayed here for the 3rd time over the last 2 years, and are sure to be back there on my next visit to London. Apart from having a great view of the Thames, London Tower and Tower Bridge just a couple of seconds away, it is very close to London Bridge Station, where you can connect virtually to any part in town where you want to travel too, from the new Olympic City Village in Stratford, to the shopping district in Oxford Street and Hyde Park. The complementary bottle of wine every night is a real winner, after a long day at the office.

Room Tip: Any room is a good room.

Visited this hotel last weekend with my husband. Location is fabulous, very close to the tube and the river. Great choices of restaurants a stones though away, would recommend the 'Cote Brasserie', friendly service, reasonable prices, fab food and a must for fish lovers. Stayed in a Executive room on the 11th floor, couldn't see the river from the room but nevertheless had good views of Londons skyline (the Shard to the right, St Pauls straight ahead and The Gerkin to the right). The room was modern and of a good size. The bed was a king or queen size, something you don't see very often these days. Everything was accounted for including slippers, dressing gowns, posh toiletries, large wardrobes, bathroom scales, make up mirrors etc.... The bathroom was ultra modern with a large shower and a bath. We made full use of the executive lounge enjoying a delicious afternoon tea and drinks. Unfortunately we missed out on the evening cocktails (next time!). We also ate breakfast in the executive lounge and we were impressed with the spread and food was replenished regularly throughout our sitting. Check in and check out was hassle-free and all staff (including the cleaners) were friendly, efficient and hardworking. Will definitely use again. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Visited this hotel over the Jubilee weekend. Thanks to Sven Goosen for arranging VIP access for us, it was such a nice surprise. The special wristbands allowed my girlfriend and I to get right up to the River Thames to see the flotilla passing under Tower Bridge. The service offered by the team at Hilton London Tower Bridge simply cannot be beaten! A special word of thanks to Rafal one of the managers for helping us with directions on the day.

I have stayed at this hotel 3 times now and it would be my first choice of hotel when I stay in London. The location is perfect, right next to Tower Bridge so you are within a stone's throw from this beautiful bridge and the view at night is stunning. It is also within easy walking distance of Borough Market which is well worth a visit. Well connected to tube station so getting there is no problem. The rooms are spacious, clean, modern, beds very comfy. The breakfast there is yummy with a large selection on the buffet. There is also an executive lounge with a roof terrace which is lovely if you get a nice summer evening.

This is my third stay here, and the hotel continues to maintain its high standards. It is clean, well maintained, and well operated. As a bonus we were also able to check in before the usual time.

Only two minor suggestions:

1) When checking in, I asked the clerk to confirm that my Hilton Honors number would be added to the reservation. He did so promptly and cheerfully, but read aloud my membership address (i.e. my home address) when doing so. Now, no one else was around to overhear it, but it is perhaps an unwise habit. (In contrast, the clerk followed best practice and did not read out my hotel room number, but simply pointed to it on the keycard-holder.)

2) Internet access is expensive at 15 pounds per day.

These minor gripes do not detract from my overall impression of the hotel, and I would happily stay here again. I had been slightly worried to receive a room very close to the lifts/elevators, but the soundproofing must have been excellent as I didn't hear a thing.

Room Tip: ask for a non-adjoining room to minimize noise disruptions
