We love both the restaurants, the anglers head chef always prepares us an out of this world dining experience and brunch on... More

A great hotel with welcoming staff and a terrific fish restaurant on the top floor. The studio room is stylish although the seating area looks good but is pretty uncomfortable unless you want to lie down (for which there is already the bed!). Would prefer more traditional sofa or armchair. The bathroom is spacious and practical. There are two entrances... More

Verry comfortable, friendly staff. Good food and great cocktails at a reasonable price. Top bar is great for cocktails and great views of the city. Brilliant for business and pleasure due to its proximity to Liverpool street and Moorgate stations

Third visit in 9 months and still my favourite hotel in London. The staff are so friendly and nothing is any trouble at all. Tried room service for the first time and it was excellent- tasty food and very fast, efficient service. Cannot fault South Place- looking forward to returning soon.

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.
