Reviewed June 24, 2008

I've stayed here a couple of times, most recently for the Royal Ascot race meeting - its handy for Bank Tube and the Waterloo and City Line. Generally the location is good for the City, the West End is easily reachable on the Tube from Bank or Tower Hill.

It has a superbly equipped gym and a really excellent pool, can't imagine there's a better hotel swimming pool anywhere in London.

Bar is ok and not overly pricey and the breakfast again is ok, the standard buffet that you see at most hotels these days.

I have to say the hotel falls down a bit on its rooms. I wasn't overly impressed by the cleanliness of my room and I'm not one of those really picky, fussy types. I think the standard of the rooms are more 4 star than 5.

Service is god though and can't complain about the staff who all seemed pleasant and helpful.

We stayed at The Grange City Hotel in London from June 18-22, 2008. We got a family room for approx 400 pounds including VAT. It's located just outside the Tower Hill tube station which is very convenient for visiting The Tower of London and many other attractions. We arrived at the hotel early morning on the 18th as we flew in from Toronto. They had a room for us which was great because we were very tired and feeling a bit jetlagged. We stayed in room 409 overlooking the patio area of the hotel where they host outdoor events. The room itself had two double beds and was very clean. Bathroom had a stand alone shower and a separate bath tub. Hotel staff were very nice and helpful. We chose this hotel as I had previously stayed at The Grange Rochester hotel when last in London but this time wanted a hotel with a pool as we were travelling with our teenage daughter. The hotel has a huge indoor swimming pool, hot tub, steam room, sauna and aromatherapy room. A nice thing to have after a long day of walking and sightseeing. Hotel breakfast (continental) was included on the Saturday and Sunday morning which was plenty for us. All you could eat, boiled eggs, toast, cereals, fruit, cheese, etc. You could upgrade to an English breakfast but we chose not to as this was enough for us. The only thing I would like to mention here is that the hotel is located in a business area so there is little to no nightlife nearby the hotel and on weekends its very quiet. This was suitable to us as we had a teenager with us and weren't looking for nightlife. Also, on the Saturday night there was an event taking place at the hotel for the City of London Police Officers... they had the music going downstairs until about 2:00 a.m. and you could hear the bass from the music as we were on the 4th floor - this would have to be the only negative. When we mentioned to the front desk upon checkout they said that normally these events only go on until midnight but I guess the attendees had asked if they could extend it for a couple of hours, I would assume if you were staying on the third floor right above this area it would have been very difficult to sleep. All in all, a great stay at this hotel and would highly recommend it!

Booked a friday stay via the hotel website. The rate was for the Room + Breakfast was £80

We were upgraded to an executive room without extra charge. Nicely located next to Tower Hill tube, good for Tower of London, Tower Bridge etc

Staff were excellent and it doesn't matter which member of staff you passed in the hotel, they all said hello!

Stayed at the Grange City Hotel for work in April. Good location for the business district and there was a tube station near. Very close to Tower Bridge and the area there. Did do some sightseeing but it was a work trip. Area pretty dead at night so had to travel a bit to find nightlife.

We stayed here in May for two nights to attend a City Wedding. Glossy, grand public areas. Our party's accomodatoin experience was mixed - we had a roomy executive room - a bit like a Marriott - plenty of space, small bathroom. Others in our party had a similar room but with balcony, a grand penthouse suite, a small poky room described as a double but almost certainly a single, a twin room with extra bed added described as a family room . Those who used the swimming pool had a great time. We only tried one of the three restaurants - a brasserie which overlooked a nice little patio featuring a part of the London Wall. Our evening meal was punctuated by groups of walkers and a guide explaining all about Roman London. But the food was good and surprisingly good value. Sushi restaurant looked nice. Isis bar OK but full of relativley restrained stag and hen parties the nights we were there. Service was amazingly slow, tea and coffee in the rooms were not replenished and the advertised free paper was tucked away in the lobby. A good quality continental breakfast was served in the restaurant and brasserie - full English was £8 extra. The staff were universally helpful but universally struggling with English so their obvious good intentions were not always realised. Would I stay again for leisure- No but would be fine for a business trip.

Stayed here over the bank holiday weekend, for a very reasonable £79 per night.
Rooms of a good standard, with continental breakfast included.
Paid an additional £8 for the full English breakfast, which was a little disapointing ( the breakfast at the City's sister hotel at Holburn is much better).
Room overlooked the railway line at the back of the hotel, which is the price you pay as a smoker I guess, but did not experience any noise, and would be ideal for trainspotters!
Well located for the Tower of London. Tube station just around the corner, which you will need if you are after pubs etc, as the area was very quiet in the evening.
A very nice hotel, but the Grange Holburn is better located for nightlife etc.
