What a lovely hotel, helpful reception, lovely room, good choice of bars and restaurants. Downside, bag broken when taken to room, not perfectly cooked steak at dinner. I expect a restaurant of this caliber do a perfect steak! Good side, complimentary drinks and agreed to pay for the bag to be repaired. I would definitely stay again!

Back in London for a bit of Christmas shopping and catching up with family and friends, and, of course, am staying back at South Place Hotel. As always, the booking process is smooth, but I did notice that the room categories have been tweaked a bit with the addition of Wilson Rooms. I booked an Eldon. Upon arrival, it was... More

A magic hotel full of miracles. When you think of a 5-star hotel,you imagine red carpets and all sorts of beauty, but what you get (in this hotel) is a reaaaaly fantastic piece of mind - Not everything is beautiful, but instead everything is where it's supposed to be. The room, the bathroom, everything is so modestly perfect. The guys... More

This was my second stay at South Place, booked because the first stay was so brilliant. It was just as good second time around- our suite on the 6th floor was divine (the glass bath tub- wow!) We had drinks in the two bars which are lovely- cocktails are great- and we had dinner one night in The Angler restaurant... More

Great hotel in the City. Boutique chic with excellent attentive service. Marco, bartender in the Members Club on the 1st Floor can mix a wicked cocktail. You have to try his Trinidad! I stayed 6 nights and had a blast. From check-in to checkout the whole experience made me feel special. I had a room with free non-alcoholic minibar which... More

This is my second time at the hotel and I must say that I really do love it! South Place easily ranks up there as one of my favorite hotels in the world along with the SLS in Miami and The Library in Koh Samui.

Fabulous modern design, greatly equipped and rather spacious (compared to London standard) rooms, great bar, simply great in many respects. If only the breakfast is buffet rather than by order. It takes you minimum 15-25 mins to get served and eat it ... :-(

The South Place Hotel is amazing! Stayed here on the spur of the moment and was not disappointed, this is what a boutique hotel should be. The bar has a great vibe and great service. The 3 South Place restaurant was excellent, my pork cheek was just delicious. The rooms are just lovely, double shower, full blackout blinds, great lighting... More

We stayed as a couple at South Place Hotel a few weeks ago. It is a brilliant recent boutique hotel sitting next to both Liverpool street and Moorgate stations making it easy to travel in London. It is bang in the financial City but also on the fringes of trendy Shoreditch, making it a perfect location. The same blend of... 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 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.
