For what I have seen it is very nice and a very high quality hotel. I went to the place for a drink at the Secret Garden Bar , located on the first floor. Great drinks and a very cool italian barman called Fabrizio , what a nice surprise. Top!

This hotel is lovely! As soon as you walk in, you are hit by a really pleasant smell of Vanilla, its spotlessly clean and very modern. The food and drink is good (not out of this world, just good!). The bathrooms are lovely! Everything in the room is quite 'hi-tech' with touch sensitive buttons for pretty much everything. The only... More

On a romantic getaway (no children) for our 20th wedding anniversary South Place Hotel proved to be the perfect choice. We were greeted with smiles and a drink! We took a moment to appreciate the art and decor of the bar whilst chatting to a wonderful gentleman (Dan) who provides a pop up bakery each Saturday. Myself and my husband... More

Love, love, love this hotel. Very stylish and chic, with beautiful, comfortable bedrooms with great little touches and super bathrooms with large bath and fabulous shower. Great breakfast, lovely lounge for drinks and a lively bar which we saw, but didn't manage to get to on this occasion.

We chose this hotel as it was close to where we were doing some business entertaining. It was a little gem, great service, perfectly appointed rooms and a lively bar. Spotlessly clean. Will be back and have no hesitation in recommending it to others. A great find.

We spent one night at this fantastic 5 star hotel near St Paul's on Saturday. It was the perfect weekend from start to finish..

Had a lovely lunch here, had the risotto as my main meal which was very tasty and rhubarb trifle, which was lovely, not too heavy, just right after a filling main. Will come back here again! Service was also very good.

The boyfriend and I decided to treat ourselves to a luxurious staycation and stayed at the South Place hotel this weekend.

The hotel is centrally located with large modern well appointed rooms. The hotel staff were not the friendliest and less accommodating that other hotels in London around room changes. I had a room that faced building works that started at 7am, not the hotels fault obviously but it did mar the trip somewhat. It was expensive relative to other options... More

I love everything about this hotel! The total black out blinds and drapery are heaven sent after a red eye flight. The staff are exceptional and the restaurant consistently good. The hotel is close to two tube stations and walking distance to my London office. Only thing missing: sport channel for European football specifically the Spanish league.

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.
