this is the 5th time we've been staying at the Apex City.
Lovely rooms (the upgrade was a special treat), staff ever so friendly.
Very baby friendly, with a baby bath amenity and a large size cot.
Restaurant dinner, great food for a very basic hotel standards price.
Will be back again, no doubt!
(The duck is an all time favorite)

Thank you Apex City

My family and I enjoyed an excellent meal here on a Friday evening using Top Table. The menu was fairly standard but what really made our evening was the courtesy and attentiveness of the restaurant manageress. Afterwards we had .coffee and drinks in the pleasant bar.

My husband and I booked only one night in this hotel as our plans had changed and we had an extra London night. I was worried it would be very cold and business-like but I was pleasantly surprised, I wish we had booked more nights as we loved this place. The location was very good as only a 5 min walk to tube station and very near to Tower Bridge. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and we were given an upgrade to a gorgeous room. With only a one night stay I was actually sad that there wasn't time to spend more time at the hotel but as it was we didn't even get a chance to eat or drink there. Next time we get to London - Apex City of London Hotel will be my first choice! (PS- Loved the cute bath duck who now sits on my window ledge).

The hotel staff was friendly and prompt however the restaurant and bar staff although friendly showed little to no urgency. The hotel was well kept. Was in walking distance to the tube and dlr which worked out well for the convention I was attending.

Stayed here with my partner just before Christmas for the second time, the service and cleanliness was as good as the first however, quite disappointed with the food. It was gorgeous on first stay last September but rather disappointing (and expensive for what was served) this time. Breakfast (Continental) was just fab, no need for a full English with so much on choice. Will definitely return.

We went to the hotel to celebrate our recent wedding anniversary and to visit our son who lives in London.
Location is great if you don't need to be in the centre of the city and don't mind travelling into the heart of the city. Saying that there is still plenty of places to eat with in walking distance either side of the river.

As it was our anniversary we were upgraded to a deluxe room with a large balcony and a view of tower bridge. Along with the complimentary bottle of Prosseco what better start to a weekend away.

The room was clean and well equipped and all guests get complimentary Wi-Fi which I think is an essential.
We tried to use Guest services to book a nearby restaurant but it was closed. However they suggested that we could walk over to the other side of the river and we were not disappointed by their recommendation.
This is a great priced hotel with a good location

We stayed here for a weekend in January. Absolutely beautiful room, clean and lovely accessories (Elemis bath products). Very handy to have a fridge in the room too.

Amazing view of Tower Bridge out on the balcony.
Very comfy large beds.

Great shower and separate bath.

Room service excelled. Lovely food and prompt service.
Breakfast was also very good - lots on offer. Very tasty cooked breakfast.

Easy walk to most places with Tower Hill tube station a very short walk away. Reception organised a taxi for us which came as scheduled.

Gym looked well equipped - but did not use

Could not fault the hotel. Will stay here again on our next trip to London

Room Tip: top floor. upgrade to balcony room with lovely view
