Lovely view but a popular local place so not much room for a hotel guest! Some of the staff are lovely but others were very rude and service was abrupt. Bit of a disappointment

I opted to have supper in the Sky Lounge, which was a brilliant venue in the hot summer weather. The staff were hard-working and friendly and the hamburger was very good. My only suggestion for the Sky Lounge is that the music is far too loud. You can create ambience without drowning out conversation. A lot of bars and cafés... More

Came to the skylounge on my 21st birthday just for a drink with family. Apart from one or two tables of 3, we were the only people drinking so atmosphere wasn't all that. Service was quite slow considering how empty it was. But the views you get are great and the cocktails were lovely. Prices are quite reasonable for London... More

Skylounge is a great bar to go to, especially for the views and when the weather is nice. The service is usually good (although can be slow at times). The prices are a bit on the high side. £6 + service charge + VAT for a bottled beer is a bit crazy.

The Sky Lounge is certainly a venue to check out, overlooking the Tower of London & surrounded by some of the most stunning skyscrapers of London. Cocktails were delicious & service, fantastic!

Even if you think you've seen London, you should still go here and look at virtually 360degree views of the City's skyline from its various balconies and terraces. We went on a Wednesday evening an hour or so before sunset and got to really take it all in - I'm sure the staff are used to everyone standing there taking... More

This places is lovely. I have been on several occasions. Once on a sunny Saturday afternoon where I found it wasn't that busy and we sat in the sunshine and had a lovely lunch with some fruity ciders. The second was on a week night evening. Again, the sun was shining which highlights the spectacular views. The cocktails are all... More

So here we go... Positives; great view, cool music, clean and beautiful in the sunshine. Rude staff, inordinately expensive, the initial walk through the hotel you feel unwanted. I nearly took a client here, phew, lucky I didn't, stick with Maddison's

The Sky Lounge atop the Doubletree Tower of London Hotel offers a nice respite from your day's travels in London. Unfortinately, this hotel and the Sky Lounge is now subject to the vagaries of booming construction in London. What once may have been a great view is now marred by the City Bird of London - The One Legged Construction... More
