Our third stay at this hotel, and we remain very happy. The location is perfect, over the road from Blackfriars Tube station, and only a 20 minute walk to Covent Garden and the West End. Rooms are a good size, and very quiet. At weekends the area around the hotel is deserted, making this the perfect weekend venue (with good... More

A bit last minute I booked the Crowne Plaza London - The City for a weekend getaway. The bed was achingly soft, so much so we almost didn't check out in time. The bedroom was lovely, shower brilliant, and the breakfast was so good! It cost a little more than I would usually part with for a weekend away, but... More

I stayed in the Club Room 601 last night while visiting London for a theatre break. This hotel is literally just over the road from Blackfriars tube & train station which has excellent links. For example, it only took 15 minutes to get to Leicester Square station (close to Covent Garden, Soho & the West End). Attractions like Tower Bridge,... More

We really enjoyed our stay here, brief though it was. The room was set up nicely with little extras and as we were members the wifi was free (but somewhat spotty!). Ideally located for Blackfriars station and a short walk to St Paul's Cathedral. For those looking to roam a few minutes more, you can cross the Thames right to... More

When we checked in to the hotel we mentioned that our anniversary was that week. We were immediately upgraded to a better room. The room was clean and very comfortable. The hotel is directly across from the tube station which gave us access to everywhere that we wanted to go. We were pleasantly surprised to find a cake in our... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights last week. It was our base for sightseeing. The staff was very nice and friendly, and the room was clean and comfortable. There is the Blackfriar Tube station across the street, and taxis routinely pass by as well. There is a Tesco Express next to the hotel if you need to buy... More

I booked this hotel for a 2 night stay for my boyfriends 21st birthday. The hotel its self is lovely and at an ideal location, it is not too close to the busy centre of London however you are just a short walk from all tourist destinations. I contacted the hotel prior to arrival to advise it was a special... More

Me and my mother stayed over Christmas and it was a good all round stay. My mum loves the beds and I loved the bathrooms specifically however other plusses where the food and general welcome. The only recomendation I would add is that you have more accurate opening times for the resterants as a few times we have come past... More

Admitedly, I spent probably more than 50 nights in this hotel and I keep returning every time I am in London. Whenever checking in I am greeted as a welcome guest. The rooms are comfortable and quiet. The location is perfect for business and pleasure. I can only recommend the Crowne Plaza next to Blackfriars Station.

We took a family vacation and visited in late July. I am an IHG club member, so we got slightly upgraded rooms on the 5th floor. By London standards the rooms were spacious (normal hotel rooms size for the US). We had two rooms and neither had any view at all - one had a windows on the hotel skylight... More

Staying in City of London

Neighborhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
