My wife and I spent a long weekend at the Tower hotel. What a superb hotel the Tower is. You could not ask for a hotel better located in London, it was definitely worth searching the Internet to find the stay longer deal. Some of the reviews I read had said that the rooms were rather small. No way is... More

I stayed with my family for 3 nights between the 16th and the 20th of Sept 2016. I had booked a family room on the 7th floor with spectacular views to Thames river and Tower Bridge. Right behind lays the St.Katharines dock with many (but not great) choices to dine and lay back having a drink or a coffee. The... More

It was OK. Paid £155 for a "discount corporate rate" double room, which was extremely dated, damp and worn. In any other city, this would be a £60 independent budget hotel room suited to stag dos, but in London I guess its par for the course and get away with it due to undersupply of rooms and a great location....

I recognised at the airport, that I forgot my keys in the room´s safe and phoned the reception. They were sent to my home adress immediately. I will... More

The second time we have stopped here, and would do so again. Check in was very busy, so we came back again later. We didn't mind as we were really early, so we just dropped our bags off. Later check was great and really quick. We were on the 10th floor this time (I think i preferred the 4th floor).... More

Do not be put off by the façade of this 1970's concrete eyesore. The views from the inside are simply fantastic. We had a 10th floor Bridge/river view which is well worth the extra price. Attentive staff, clean rooms, great location for Southwark, Tower Bridge, Butlers Wharf, St Katherines Dock. The Southbank is a decent stroll. A taxi(black cab) into... More
