“Great return stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

This is our third visit to the Apex with a secret escapes deal. I emailed the hotel in advance and asked for a complimentary upgrade if this was available on the day and we were given one, nice touch.

Check in and out very simple and welcoming as always.

This hotel is in a great location, right around the corner from tower hill tube station and accessible to all the touristy spots. The hotel rooms are spacious and super clean and the beds are really comfy as are the pillows. My husband made me go shopping for new pillows for home as soon as we returned!

We didn't hear any external noise in the room we were in - 112. Complimentary wifi, huge tv and current magazines for all tastes were available in the room, along with jelly beans, cookies, pringles and water. I love the fact that they don't skimp on the complimentary toiletries, Elemis no less.

Breakfast is a continental buffet which is perfectly fine but you can opt to pay extra for a cooked breakfast if you wish. My only small concern was that is was really hot in the hotel but they had probably turned the heating up as it was below zero outside!

I would definitely not hesitate to come her again.

We used a Travelzoo offer to stay at this hotel and we were not disappointed. Spacious room and bathroom, comfortable beds with feather pillows and duvet all lovely and clean and very quiet.The staff were helpful and friendly. We were a stones throw from The Tower and the underground and nice restaurants and we will definately be using this hotel again. The only minor complaint was that we couldn't open the window so were very warm in the night but that was no bad thing considering the terrible cold snowy weather outside!

This is a great smart hotel in a good location, near tower hill tube station. The rooms are a good size, not small and cramped like some London hotels. Fast wifi included in the price. Good size bathroom. Only minor complaints is that the TV didn't seem to have all the channels and the bed wasn't as comfortable as others we have slept in

Definitely a good choice and good value.

The hotel is contemporary in style, with a good deal of sophistication to boot.

The reception staff and processes are outstanding, quick yet helpful and informative in equal measure.

We chose to upgrade to a Junior Suite and this was indeed an excellent idea. The lounge area had a commfortable and striking Chez, a desk area with angle poise lamp and also a large flat screen TV with Bose sound system.

The bedroom had a very clean and comfortable King Sized bed and had adequate storage facilitites, mini-bar, safe and Ironing equipment and ald a large flat screen TV and Blu-Ray player (films available free from reception, with a refundable deposit).

The bathroom was spacious, with a roll top bath and walk in shower and excellent quality toiletries.

The restaurant for both dinner and breakfast offered food and service of an exceptional standard.

All in all the hotel is excellent for business trips, but also for a nice weekend in the city.

Room Tip: It may be worth upgrading to a Junior suite if the cost is not prohibitive

The hotel is very modern.It is in a good location in the city plenty of restaurants and bars and just minutes from St Paul's , Tower of London and other iconic landmarks.The rooms are extremely spacious and have full length windows the bathroom was beautiful.I personally like to be able to open a window for obvious reasons part as with lots of modern hotels you don't have this option.I can see it being more of a problem in the summer .

Staff team were very pleasant and would stay again.

The hotel was just perfect. The room was very beautyful decorated. It was very comfortable and we had the feeling of beeing home and not in a hotel because it was more an appartement than a hotelroom. We had a good time in this hotel!

Many thanks for that :-)
