Stayed here for a long weekend, booked an Executive twin room which overlooked the Thames and Tower bridge, which lit up at night is a great view with The Shard in the distance. Its located about a 5min walk from Tower Hill Tube Station and opposite The Tower Of London. Check in was a little slow however there were only... More

Booked last minute room here. Really good value for London. Yes the rooms are small & a bit outdated BUT the view of the bridge lit at night was spectacular.Room was clean , bed comfortable. That's all that mattered. Very happy with view. Bonus , breakfast was included, didn't think that happened any more.

The best thing about the hotel is the location. It looks quite plush on entering but really it's pretty basic. Our room was tiny; my side of the bed was against the wall, only basic toiletries; no shower cap, shoe shine etc. there was also a big clump of long black hair in the bathroom; I'm blonde and hubby short...

First and foremost, baring in mind this hotel is cheaper than the large majority of London hotels it really is in a great location. Minutes away from St Katherine Docks (filled with nice bars and restaurants), the landmark Tower Bridge and tourist favourite Tower of London, there's plenty to see and do in the immediate area. To reach other parts... More

There`s nothing exceptional about this hotel, apart of its location and the view from the window - either on the Tower Bridge, or on St. Katharine`s Docks, which are both really nice. The staff is helpful, breakfast - good and beds - comfortable. The only drawback comes from the fact, that the hotel is really huge and when one of... More

The place is perfectly located at the Tower Bride and if you would look out of the window of the bar it looks like a huge picture of the Tower Bridge - but it is there, REALLY close. So very convenient for business in the city of London and also close to the DLR Tower Gateway. The place itself is... More

We stayed here during the week. Staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel itself looked quite 60s and dated from the outside, but was nice and modern on the inside. Our room was pleasant, but the bath had not been cleaned properly and there was still soap scum from the previous user, but this was a minor detail. Concierge were... More
