3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

So after staying at the Doubletree on Pepys Street (almost next door) a few times, I looked to save a few dollars and booked into the Apex. Mistake. Comments: Noisy - the doors slam like vault doors and your neighbours will wake you up when they leave early. You can also hear noise in other rooms. Poorly designed rooms: -... More

This hotel was very stylish and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Our room was unexpectedly large with a sofa, and coffee table seating area, which made it feel more suite like and the decor was very up to date. Breakfast was excellent - there was a lot of choice, and overall where the hotel was located (2 minute... More

Crazy amount of room space for any major city! Room had a huge balcony that was great even in rainy December. Minutes to Tower Bridge underground and just a few minutes further to the Tower. The hotel was late getting rooms set up as we arrived, but they offered us a beverage in the lounge while we waited. Was VERY... More

This hotel is definitely worth 5 stars. The staff were so polite and made us feel welcome. The location is just over the road from a restaurant plaza and then the Tower of London. A tube station is a 5 minute walk away. This hotel is tucked down a side street so you aren't aware of all of the traffic... More

Bear in mind that my wife and I were given an upgrade when I told the reception staff that it was her birthday celebrations that weekend, but I have to say that my impressions of this hotel are all very positive. The room itself appeared to have been recently refurbished; it was certainly smarter and fresher than our children's rooms... More

The Apex City of London Hotel has been my personal favorite (for years) when staying over for business in The City of London. Due to the (always) friendly staff, the unabated clean and comfortable rooms, the modern style and yet warm atmosphere. And last but not least the smaller scale of the hotel, which makes it more personal and a... More

My partner bought me a Christmas present of a meal in London, so we decided to combine the meal with a stay over. We choose this hotel as it sounded very good on Trip Advisor and was also close to attractions. We were not disappointed, the hotel was exceptional, staff, room, service, just 5 star. It is so close to... More

I recently stayed here with my friend for my birthday. On arrival we was greeted at the desk and told that our room had been upgraded which was a nice surprise. The room included a lounge area with flat screen tv, desk , table and sofa. Bathroom was big and spacious including robes and slippers. Room service was very quick!... More

Staying in City of London

Neighborhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
