Great hotel in a great location Friendly staff, Great for sightseeing or for visiting shows. Hotel and surrounding area was very clean and tidy. An early check in and room access would have been great. We had phone the previous day to arrange this only to be told it would be up to the check in staff on the day.... More

This Hotel is situated right next to Tower Bridge in London, and for that reason alone is worth a recommendation. Our room was a standard double sleeper, probably a bog-standard room at this Hotel, and it was quite bijou! However, it was very clean and decorated to a nice standard, with TV facilities and good shower/toilet/bathroom. The shower was lovely,... More

A rare visit to London and a theatre break with a choice of two hotels. We are so glad that we chose the Tower. A 3pm check-in didn't augur well but when we finally reached our room on the sixth floor, we were more than pleased. Spotless and well prepared, everything you needed with lovely views of St Katherine's Dock... More

I had booked this as a treat for my American husband (and for the capital I was going to make over the Americans mistake re London bridge and Tower bridge :) We had tickets for Kate Bush so had a real weekend to look forward to! Check in was straight forward and we were in the room by 2. Full... More

Stayed on 4th floor facing rear of hotel, view over Katharine dock (sounds depressing but really isn't as the dock is a redeveloped area and nicely done.Not too noisy, even with the window open (which was required as air-con is ineffectual). Comfy bed, uncomfy pillows, limited channels on the TV, cold water eventually, after running the tap full on for... More

I stayed here on a conference recently and would stay again. It's in a great location near to Tower bridge and The Tower of London and surrounded by restaurants and bars. The Tower Hill underground is 10 mins away and is sign posted. From the outside the hotel looks a little tired but on the inside the decor is modern... More

We selected this hotel to visit Tower of London, The Shard and parts of the southbank. Well on first impressions when we arrived was mixed, right on steps of Tower Bridge and the Thames walkways, but when you look at the hotel it looks delapelated and in need of money spent on exterior. We did fear what then would be... More

I stayed at the Tower Hotel for 2 nights for a training course that was also being held at the hotel. Let me start iff by saying that the location of this hotel is by far and away its key selling point. It is literally on the bank of the Thames and overlooks Tower Bridge and the Tower of London...

The hotel is situated in a fantastic location. Reception staff were excellent. The room was generally of a high standard but the bathroom had seen better days which included a cracked floor tile (not sure this is not a h&s issue?). We did not have the breakfast but at £12 it seemed quite reasonable as well. Parking was convenient just... More

I stayed at this hotel for the location as was attending a course at international house just around the corner. The cost was covered by work so I have to take that in to consideration. From the outside the hotel is in major need of refurbishment. Whether their hands are tied by planning control or not they need to do... More
