Located next to St Catherines Dock, by the side of the Thames. Beautiful views. Fantastic eateries around the dock. Easy access to the Tube. Hotel very clean. Very helpful staff. We stayed over night. Relaxed in the Xi Bar in the hotel that evening. Wonderful nights sleep in comfortable bed. Buffet breakfast the following day, superb. Very helpful, efficient staff.... More

Excellent location overlooking the Tower Bridge! Rooms were much larger than expected and so comfortable. The staff were so friendly and welcoming - particularly on reception. One slight hint - breakfast was always busy from 8am onwards (though this is to be expected in such a popular hotel!) I would definitely stay at this hotel again when visiting London!

This hotel is right next door to Tower Bridge, so location is A1. 10 minute walk to London Bridge station. Room was comfortable and had all amenities that one would expect, free wi-fi and a good breakfast were also appreciated. Staff were friendly and helpful too, which always helps. Minor downside it was quite busy and so sometimes there were... More

Great hotel to stay. Friendly staff, nice rooms (good bed), and we loved our dinner in The Brasserie of the hotel! Nice view to the Tower Bridge. Good location, near underground, bus, ... It's a hotel that is visited by many people (tourists), so you can have the feeling it's busy there, but even then the staff is very friendly... More

Stayed sat 28th. Even if looking a little dated in the rooms they were clean and beds comfortable. The views of either Saint Katherines dock or Tower bridge amazing. Breakfast was efficient and good. Concierge service and info very good. One niggle was a very hot room and even with thermostat low and air con switch on the air that... More

This hotel should be destroyed and rebuilt. The situation is extraordinary along the Thames with the tower bridge as neighborhood The reception is nice and the breakfast very completed. Price pretty expensive but the old-furnished room (no bar) is the most negative point. A lot of potential for LT project

The outside of this hotel can be a little off-putting, but this belies the quality of the stay when your get inside. You are unable to check in until 3pm but the hotel are more than willing to store any luggage for you while you go off to explore London. The hotel is ideally located at Tower Bridge, with excellent... More

Just got back from a two night stay here and we couldn't fault it in any way.The outside doesn't do this hotel justice as it's lovely inside.

Fantastic stay in London. Second time at the tower hotel. Great views of the bridge. Friendly staff. Rooms a bit tired but view makes up for it. We will be back. Very handy for Borough Market and the tube.
