I stayed here overnight for Business. Great location amongst bars and restaurants, friendly efficient check in...breakfast was not included in my rate however £12 charged seamed a reasonable rate for London especially with the fantastic choice available. Downside, no air conditioning on the hottest day of the year! But with extremely comfortable beds my sleep wasn't to interrupted. I am... More

Stayed here with work on an over night in London. Firstly, I was upgraded to an exec room at check in, which was really welcome. The room on the 11th floor was nice, if not a little tired. Exec rooms include the minibar, a Nespresso machine, iron, shoe shine kits and bath robe. You also gain access to the club... More

The reception desk is terrible,no coins change forever, low efficiency,and sometimes they are quite indifferent...some of the staffs are lacking of professional quality...and couldn't resolve my problem even in an average level...can you imagine that? how could they get this job? What worse is the luggage storage, I've been to several countries around the world and lots of hotels, they... More

We have stayed at this hotel on two previous occasions and have always been very happy with the service. On our recent stay we arrived at the hotel with our friends at 11.30 am and were greeted by Minerva who said she was sorry but didn't think our rooms would be ready. She enquired if we were there for a... More

Hotel was booked as part of a package and we stayed on a Saturday night. Arrived to early to check in but it was no problem as our bags were stored and we returned around 6. Absolutely no problems with checking in. We were dealt with quickly and efficiently. We had a twin room overlooking St Katherine's Dock which was... More

This is a modern hotel a few metres East of the Tower bridge and the Tower of London. Access is easy by river ferry, bus and taxi, with a railway station a 5 min walk. Guest car parking is limited. All the services were excellent, including in-room dining and the restaurant. Very clean. Very quiet and the room (and bed)... More

We would never have chosen to stay in this hotel, but it was the last stop on a very nice tour we had taken with friends. The tour company already has my review and thoughts but I felt it deserved to be highlighted on TA as well. Recently voted the ugliest building in London, according to our tour director, the...
