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

My wife and I are celebrating our 25th Anniversary so I took a few minutes to email the concierge and I am so glad that I did. 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

We stayed here for two nights on a quick visit to London. The rooms were spacious and quiet, the staff was friendly and helpful. The location was very close to London Bridge and a fun neighborhood bar area that the staff recommended. The bar snacks were perfect for our family - hummus, bread..just perfect.

Just see the title: I can say no more. Got a great rate for 5 nights - cheaper than the Premier Inn I usually stay in thanks to their 30% offer. Lovely location close to Tower Hill station and plenty of cafes etc for eating out as well as a small Tesco for provisions.

My wife and I visited early August 2014. The hotel is located on the East end of London, a stones throw from the Tower of London historical site. Staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The room, while small by North American standards, was very clean. There was complimentary snacks and bottled water and the WiFi in the room was the... More

We stayed at the Apex in early August. The room was large and very clean. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The prices for food and drink were quite expensive, though. We did not eat at the hotel because of the high costs. Be aware that the area around the hotel appeared to mainly businesses and was quite deserted... More
