Needed a room quickly for an overnight stay in London. Came across the London City Hotel and thought I'd give it a try. Well, I'm extremely glad I did. Single door from the high street leads up to reception and bedrooms on the 1st and 2nd floors. Very friendly staff, handed my key to Room A. The ground floor has...

If this room was £40 cheaper then it would be a strong 4/5 for me, but as it is it's more of a 3.5/5. They made good use of the limited space, including some useful storage shelves. But ultimately this isn't a room designed for a week-long stay: you're here for a night or two at most. Similarly, if you're...

Very clean small room, furniture seemed new and new ensuite with a very comfy bed and lovely towels and drink making facilities. Staff very helpful. Chose due to reasonable parking at £20 per night on the next street and located next to Borough Tube and a ten minute walk to Tower Bridge Station and the Shard. There was noise from...

I received so nice treatment, I booked a single room and the day of my arrival I was informed that one of their apartments was free because somebody couldn't come and y¡they offered me for free! It means I payed for a single room and I have got an excellent apartment with awesome views of London skyline

We stayed in the appartment, which is located in a nearby building to the hotel (don't hoist the luggage up the stairs of the hotel at check-in). It is very roomy and with a very well equiped kitchen. Housekeeping is done daily. There is an underground station nearby. However some sights are within walking distance (10-15 minutes): imperial war museum,...

The hotel was clean enough and the staff courteous - but I had one major frustration and one potential which mean I would never stay here again. Major issue: the noise from aircon and room next door was unbearable - some muppet in the room next seemed to have a cottage industry going, using some machine constantly til 2am, 3am...

Because I stayed more than 1 night - and because it was available - I had the opportunity to stay in the flat the hotel has. It is very close to the hotel and we have an amazing view from the 52nd floor! Very clean, very nice staff, etc. I definitely enjoyed my time there!

I spent a weekend at the London City Hotel earlier this month. An excellent stay. My single room was clean and quiet, and hotel service was outstanding. I'd forgotten my charging cable for my iPhone, and when I asked at reception if they could direct me to an electronics shop where I could buy a replacement, they immediately said, "Oh,...
