Yes there is a decent view of the city, if that is what you want get a room on the 11th floor and look out of the window. The prices are horrofic even for the City of London, the bar staff interested only in twirling bottles not actually serving customers. Avoid.

Went to the terrace just to check out the view to be honest... Sunny and hot weather so i decided to order a drink, very friendly manager and staff, the table at the edge of the terrace made the moment to remember, only at 12th floor but a place to check out !!

Good place to go for a cocktail or some food or even stay the night if you wish. Good atmosphere and great views of London.

Just after the bank holiday, I headed over with a Spanish friend, who was new to the city to admire the views. Great time to visit as most people were away, so you had freedom to select where to sit and appreciate the place without the crowds. But it rained in the afternoon, the terrace area was out of bounds... More

Didn't eat here but had cocktails. Visited around 6.30pm on a Friday night so it was quite busy and there were no tables available either inside or out on the deck. Wasn't too bothered and just stood at the bar. I had a Cosmopolitan which was perfect. So nice! Quite pricey though but I guess you're paying for the awesome... More

The view and the atmosphere is the reason to go there. The mixed board of italian food was very non-authentic and of low quality given such a upscale place. The cocktails were a bit better - the one with the raspberry was noteworthy.

The view is great. Nice to have lunch out here. Dinner time it can get a bit blustery. The short eats and the wine selection are quite good.

The Skylounge *should* be amazing - prime position for views south over the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, the Shard in the distance and beyond; fairly extensive cocktail menu; Hilton reputation for quality. Unfortunately it never manages to quite deliver. Yes the views are good, but it is unfortunate that you have to look over the top of/through so much... More

enjoyed a quiet drink on the sky lounge on evening - it was lovely to view London from another angle. Great view of the tower bridge.
