I stayed with my family (2 adults + children 9yr, 12yr) at the hotel mid-July 2014. In the night time it was a bit difficult to find the hotel but next day we thanked the location. Very short walk to see Tower Bridge and to take walk along Thames to Big Ben. Room was clean and spacious enough for us.... More

I have stayed at the Apex City three times over the last year. Let's start with the pluses: For London, the rooms are quite spacious - particularly if you are upgraded which I was on two occasions. Rooms are clean and the beds large and comfortable. The location is terrific, particularly if you are working in the city. And the... More

Stayed here for five nights in late July, not disappointed. The room, although on the small side, is modern, stylishly decorated, and very clean. With a small fridge, ironing facilities, five-minute walk to Tower Hill tube station and ten-minute walk to a grocery store, this hotel near the Tower of London beats many highly touted family hotels (by some guide...

Stayed here over the August Bank Holiday and we were not disappointed. We had a delux room on the top floor so we had a balcony overlooking Tower Bridge - wow! Definitely worth it! Admittedly there was construction going on with the building next door but in London there's always going to be something, right??! The room was great -... More

The City of London was the perfect spot for my stay in town Very conveniently located right in the heart of the business city. The staff was incredibly friendly (especially reception and bar) and very knowledgeable of the city, transportation, and things to do. My room was very nice and clean and the service was great. Breakfast was fantastic and... More

Our greeting was fabulous, the concierge took the time to reply that all of my requests would be handled. Our room was equipped with a balcony view of the London Tower Bridge. We... More
