10th floor room, room 1059. Amazing view of Tower Bridge and the River Thames. Received a box of chocolates and a card for my birthday when I came into the room which was a beautiful touch and I really did appreciate. Thank you. However, I found the room cold and had to put the heating on. The hairdryer did not... More

As the title suggests, you could not want for a better location. 5 minutes walk from Tower Hill tube/DLR. All of the amazing St Katherine's Dock developments and Commodity Quay. It's a really spectacular and quiet place to walk around with loads of places to eat and relax. The hotel itself is pretty grand, ugly as sin from the outside... More

Had a room on the 4th floor overlooking the river and London Bridge. Amazing view, great access to tower bridge and river transport. Rooms were refurbished and modern with all facilities. Thought my club sandwich was very expensive priced at £13 but after a few drinks, was enjoyed nonetheless :) This hotel is about 15mns drive by taxi to the... More

Standard double room on 5th floor with river view, room itself very small, inut adequate for 1 night stay. Lighting level in room so low we had great difficulty in negotiating ourselves round bed, chair etc in the limited space available. Extractor fan in bathroom did not appear to work. Excellent. breakfast, plenty of choice and very helpful staff.

Stayed here for one night to see the poppies at the Tower of London in November. It's worth paying extra to get a view of Tower Bridge. Although there's also a great view of it in the bar. Don't miss walking around Katherine Docks and Butler's Wharf over the bridge.

My boyfriend and I stayed here as it wasn't far from winter wonderland and was in a good location. We had upgraded to the executive rooms which came with additional access to the executive club lounge. My boyfriend originally booked a room which has a view of the tower bridge and paid extra for this. When we got our room... More

I spent 4 nights here on a business trip. When I arrived (about 9pm) I had to queue a long time to check in, but then the receptionist was very nice and friendly. My room was opulent, decorated in a oldy worldy charm that reminded my of a luxury cabin on a ship, and I had a fantastic view of... More

Tired exterior contains beautiful spacious ground floor lobby which smells wonderful, looks bright and modern, very clean. Our twin bedroom for my sister and me had a great view looking out onto the Bridge and the Shard fairly near over the Thames river! What a fantastic location! Right next to Tower Bridge and all other local attractions, restaurants and bars... More

Staying at this hotel was not a pleasant experience. It started with arriving at the hotel fairly late in the evening to find about 20 people waiting to check in and only 3 staff checking them in - so a long wait for me to check in. When I got to the room (a standard double, assuming I got what... More
