Let down by the run down, scratched, tatty old furniture in the bedroom (1033). It would make all the difference if this were replaced as the bed was comfortable and the room clean. Breakfast was a varied, plentiful buffet and no problems were encountered even though the hotel was fit to burst with London marathon athletes😀 A nice touch was...

This hotel is large and adequate. Within walking distance of The Tower of London and a convenient "tube" stop. (Yellow line/Circle Line.) Spotty internet service. The internet went down for 12 hours! The night manager said it was finally working, but it was not!! He walked away - his assistant tried to help, however. Rooms have a beautiful view of...

The only issues were the breakfast queues at core times, say, 8.00 - 9.00. Also the staff in the restaurant were delivering food to wrong tables an I lost count of the amount of drink orders were either lost or delivered incorrectly. Having said that, and review demands at least 200 words, the hotel itself was excellent and bar/reception staff...

consistantly excellent service and despite the "standard published tarrif", often has great deals through Hotels.com and booking.com. Excellent location for both DLR - circle and District underground lines. Usually I nearly always use the high speed Thames clipper from next door at the Tower of london Pier. There is always a taxi outside the hotel and Steven the doorman is...

I last took a group here in 2006- it was good then and now it is even better. The breakfast was excellent, the reception was super-efficient and the spotless rooms have fantastic views over either the Thames or St Katherine's Dock. There is some queuing at breakfast peak times but this is normal for a large London hotel- go either...

We like to go to London for a weekend every couple of years. Always stayed near the west end. But not anymore. This is the best location and value in London, especially for walks along the river. Arrived early & managed to upgrade to exec room (for a small fee). Will definitively book this hotel again.
