Good service, decently priced. Nice welcome gift of chocolates. There was a discrepancy between the staff at the front desk who said the minibar would be refilled every day and then later the concierge said it would be filled once per stay. They resolved this by giving us drinks on the house. Very good staff, pleasant polite and willing to help resolve issues amicably. My wife and I enjoyed our two night stay in their top room suite which had decent views and nice decor.

Stayed here for 2 nights with a friend for her birthday - lovely greeting when we arrived and we were given a warm chocolate cookie! The room was fab - king city suite, good views, lots of space and complimentary mini bar. Staff were helpful and booked tables at restaurants for us. Breakfast was great - delivered to our room each morning.

Only complaint is that when we arrived on Friday afternoon our room wasn't ready and we had to wait in the executive suite, which wasn't great - no music or atmosphere, previous people's rubbish and dirty cups/glasses were littered around the room and there was a guy fixing all the electrics. Not an ideal start to the weekend!

Other than that, we had a fab time and I'd return - I would definitely recommend this hotel

I stayed here for 3 Nights in May. I really liked the Hotel, its very very clean, comfortable, nice and cozy. The Staff is friendly and helpfull. On Check-In you recive a warm chocolate cookie, and for Check-Out there is a self-service express Check-Out Mailbox, so you don't have to wait in line for checkout.
The hotel offers free Wifi, and every room has its own iMac Computer, which is very helpfull.
Location is near tower of london and the tower bridge, you just have to walk 2 minutes, the nearest subway station is about 1 minute from the hotel (Tower Hill).
I totally recommend this hotel, and would love to stay there again.

This hotel is close to the Tower of London, St. Paul's Cathedral, and good shopping which kept me happily busy while my boyfriend worked. Very friendly and helpful staff. The restaurant in the hotel (Natural Kitchen) was the best! No complaints really, we would stay here again unless we wanted to stay in a different area.

For our first visit to London the staff and the amenities of this property made our stay an excellent one! First of all, its proximity to the Tower of London was essential to our hectic 2 day schedule. The rooms were really clean and very modern. Our stay included breakfast and we were expecting a continental breakfast option, but were pleasantly surprised when we were treated to a full breakfast buffet.

Long weekend away without the kids, and the Doubletree by Hilton London was the perfect venue. I really liked the contemporary design of the hotel, tucked away an easy walk from the Tower of London, with an interesting do-nut shaped design to the interior, and vertical 'green' walls above the glass-ceilinged central reception area. Apparently the cheapest rooms on the internet are usually 'accessible' - that's a room for disabled people - which we didn't really need. So the friendly receptionist moved us to a standard double and dished out the free cookies to my husband's delight. The rooms are modern and spacious, but our bed was less than a queen (she definitely called it a queen room). A queen should have a 1.50M wide bed, and ours was 1.35M. A bit more cosy than we are used to, and something to watch out for if this would really spoil your stay. Good mattress, on the firm side, with two feather pillows each. Air con. Really useful Apple TV which converts to a computer with pullout keyboard and mouse. Free wifi. Tea and coffee making facilities (in the drawer under the TV). Compact but very well put together shower room in excellent decorative order. Everything was super-clean. Our room 367 overlooked a quite side street. Extremely quiet hotel, and a great night's sleep with no noisy corridors or doors. One point to note, the City of London (the square mile) is largely closed at weekends, which includes all shops, restaurants, cafes, etc. So if you are looking for peace and quiet on the doorstep of a major city (which we were), this is a really good location. If you want to be in the thick of it, perhaps find something further west or be prepared to walk quite a lot. Food outlets looked good. Rooftop bar is a 'plus' with drinks typically expensive for central London at around £10 each and not that great. But to the hotel's credit there is no pressure to buy a drink, and the 360 degree views are really stunning by day and night. The staff are a real asset to this hotel. We will definitely be back.

This is a bright modern hotel located in a decent area around Tower Bridge. The rooms were spotless and perfect for a short hotel stay while in London. All rooms have Apple TV and they have free wifi available for all guests which was nice !! We enjoyed a few hours up in the hotels sky Lounge which has fantastic views across London on a nice clear day !! The only thing we found was the service was not the best in the sky lounge with several times our group being given the wrong drinks, some of the staff could maybe do with scrubbing up on there English language skills a little more.
