This hotel is situated in a great area, with easy walking and train access nearby. My partner and I stayed here for one night in July to see Ed Sheeran at Wembley. We thoroughly enjoyed the concert and were pleasantly surprised by the comfy night sleep we got in this hotel as well as the lovely docks nearby, the summery... More

This hotel is ideal for a riverside stay by some iconic landmarks. Tower bridge is right outside and the Tower of London is a few minutes walk away. Also the river cruise boats have a pier nearby which is handy if you want to use them to get from one spot to another, rather than using a taxi or the... More

Room was warm and cosy. Location perfect. However the interiors are all outdated. Bath was not so great with rusted hole pins. Reception is beautiful but rooms are average. Felt the price I paid was high for the room.

This review is really to congratulate The Tower in working with Tesla Motors in providing space in their underground car park for two Tesla Supercharger bays. It shows innovation in their product strategy. The concierge and reception staff are very helpful at this hotel and it is a great place to grab a coffee and a meal whilst your car... More

Fantastic views of Tower Bridge from rooms at the front, at the back is St Katherine's dock also amazing to see. Spending the night with the Tower bridge in full view from your bed is a real experience. The town side is the room is absolutely tiny. Wall to bed is about 50 cm one side, less than a metre...

We stayed here on Friday 28th August, for my birthday treat in London. We travelled by train to Victoria and got a cab. (Cost around £20) although going to Canon Street station would of been closer. The hotel is right on the river next to St Katherine's Dock And Tower Bridge. The Shard is just over the river and the... More

Made to feel welcome every time. Friendly place. Emails before I arrive to ask what I need. Got my check in details wrong once, nice bottle of wine delivered immediately. Fab views. Food ok but not outstanding. This is my first pick London hotel

I'm consistently impressed that this hotel comes in on budget for my business trips to London. It's a great location - right next to the Tower, it's a short walk into the City and an easy tube or boat to Canary Wharf. I've stayed here a half dozen times in the past year. All the rooms are a good size,... More

Stayed for a couple of nights, room overlooking the Tower Bridge. The view was incredible, but the room was quite dated. Small bathroom, old fixtures and very dated decor. Breakfast at the restaurant was very good though. 1 minute walk from the bus stop, and really easy to navigate to other attractions.

Four couples, brothers, cousin and spouses, spent a long weekend in the Guoman Tower Hotel. Our first impression was one of luxurious comfort. The hotel is situated between the Tower of London, Tower Bridge and St. Katharine´s Dock and our window, on the 6th floor, looked down onto the dock. The room was very comfortable with tea-making facilities, a mini-bar... More
