4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW via mobile

This hotel was very comfortable. The location is great for site seeing. Hop on the river taxi to travel down river to attractions or walk to the Tower and many dining choices. Breakfast buffet in hotel was convenient. Night views are nice with the Tower Bridge right outside fully lit each night. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

We stayed at The Tower for 2 night in August 2016. We had a room with a view of Tower Bridge and The Thames which was great, the night time view when everything is lit up is just fantastic. Our room was spotlessly clean, fabulously comfortable beds and pillows. The bathroom had a bath and shower - I'm fussy with... More

room wonderful. views over the thames. breakfast lovely and fresh. Could do with someone frying eggs front of house as this caused a queue waiting for eggs. this is not a complaint but advice. Reception staff couldn't have been more helpful. We had dinner in the hotel. The Brasserie was only 1/2 full but we waited for about 10 minutes... More

Just got back from a stay at The Tower, and it was just fabulous. The hotel is brilliantly located right in the heart of London. The room was small, but perfectly adequate it was spotlessly clean and the staff were brilliant, so friendly and attentive. I could choose my room from a 'live' video screening sent to me prior to...

Was only stopping at the hotel for a couple of nights, but unfortunately despite a number of good points (comfortable quiet room with great views, decent location), the abysmal experience at checking in (never had to queue from the outside of the front door of a hotel before and be in the queue for 30 minutes, before being told that...

I booked the Tower Hotel for my husbands birthday. We arrived early and our room was not ready so we checked in and received our room keys. As we had an executive room this allowed us to use the Club lounge on the 5th floor. So we went to have coffee before we went to have a walk around. We... More

Lovely hotel right near Tower bridge, very nice rooms and the few times we've stayed we've had excellent views, either of Tower Bridge or of Katherine's Dock. Rooms very well appointed, very comfortable, nice chairs, plenty of 'worktop' space for all your bits and pieces, beds very comfortable. Nice bathroom. Nice furnishings and very clean
