Reviewed October 4, 2006

I stayed here for 4 nights and had a great experience. Would definitely stay again if I got a good rate.

Pros:
-good location -- Starbucks is right across the street, as is Blackfriar's tube statation. There are some good restaurants closeby as well.
-interesting, modern decor (at little *too* modern for my tastes, but that's personal preference)
-spacious room and elegant bathroom
-great amenities in the rooms, like kettles, hot chocolate, tea, coffee, cookies, bottled water; loved the Molton Brown toiletries!
-friendly, welcoming staff
-comfortable beds


Cons:
-expensive (but hey, it's London)
-don't bother with the restaurant, especially for breakfast. Mediocre and not worth the money.

Stayed: August 2006

I have stayed in this hotel in the weekend that I go to the Vertigo concert in London Twickenham.
We booked the deluxe room with breakfast at the IC website.
The room was very clean and the staf was very helpful.
The area of London City is very quit, but thats no probleme

If you can manage to get a deal - official rates are too expensive, but hey, this is London - the CP London The City is a great place to stay at. Located two tube stops from Trafalgar Square (tube station Blackfriars is just out the door), it is withing easy reach of business and pleasure sites, but still in a reasonably quite location.
Room quite big, comfy beds (except the pillows), bathroom nice but pretty small, with high quality amenities (Molton Brown).
Breakfast is quite nice if it's included in your rate, but don't bother paying extra for it. In that case, grab a coffee at Starbucks across the street.
Staff is extremele kind and helpful. E.g. when our confirmed non-smoking room smelled of smoke upon arrival, reception immediately solved the problem and got us another room within five minutes. All other members of staff i had to deal with were very kind as well.
All in all, I'd stay here again anytime and recommend the hotel to anyone.
