great breakfast and even better exec lounge with balcony on the top floor

This was an overall disappointing experience with a hotel brand that I have stayed with on multiple occasions in Asia. No toothpaste/dental kit. No bathrobe. Limited laundry services. Dodgy internet service. Piss poor service staff. I will choose another hotel next time.

My husband and I stayed at the Hilton Tower Bridge hotel for two weeks while I was in London on business (8/26 - 9/6). This was our second visit to the hotel. I asked for, and received, an upgrade to a slightly larger room that included breakfast. I truly appreciated this gesture since we were spending nearly 2 weeks at this hotel.

We specifically requested to stay at this hotel for a second time due to the wonderful location. You are steps away from the River Thames, Tower Bridge, and many bars and restaurants. We enjoyed nightly strolls along the river and dining at a huge variety of excellent places. We were never bored!

Positives of our stay:
- The room was clean and large enough for us to feel comfortable. It was very quiet. The rooms have a very modern feel.
- Excellent proximity to M&S for groceries, bars, restaurants, and the River Thames.
- Appreciated the in-room safe, and the large bathroom.
- Upgraded to a slightly larger room, which was very appreciated.
- Replenished complimentary bottle of wine daily, as well as occasional treats of fruit and chocolate. We also got several handwritten notes from the manager.
- Great gym with 1 elliptical machine, 2 or 3 treadmills, bikes, and lots of weights, mats.
- Several minute walk to tube and train stations
- The service at the front desk is impeccable!
- The laundry service is top notch...although expensive.

Areas for improvement:
- Some of our towels were threadbare and / or had mascara stains on them.
- My complimentary bathrobe had a hole in the sleeve and was really worn.
- Lack of drawers for storing my clothing. There were several shelves but I prefer to have drawers to store my clothes.
- They upgraded us to complimentary breakfast upon checkin. However, they never recorded it properly in the system so that every single morning for 2 weeks we were grilled as to whether or not we had breakfast included and had to sit here while they verified that we had breakfast included before getting seated. It was quite embarrassing and annoying.
- The breakfast was hit or miss. Sometimes the food was spot on. Other times, the food was cold and unappealing. I heard other guests complaining of the same thing.
- The wifi was horrible. We had to pay a huge fee to get wifi in our room. The wifi was spotty in the bulk of our room. The only place where it was reliable was in the bathroom or in the hallway by the front door. I called the 3rd party help dest that Hilton outsourced the wifi to multiple times to get this fixed. We were given a modest discount for our troubles upon checkout.\
- The service in the restaurant (breakfast) was spotty. My most memorable experience was watching / listening to the guy at the front desk taking his web-based-training module on profit margins and clients while on-the-job. I didn't like hearing about how Hilton makes a profit on their clients while eating my breakfast.

We will most likely stay at this hotel again while traveling on business. The location is awesome and the hotel is very clean.

Used the hotel a number of times during business trips including a recent one in September. Given that most of the hotels in central London I'm familiar with have the traditional, old fashioned slant, for someone with a bias towards modern contemporary this could be a potential preferred choice. Good location within walking distance of restaurants and attractions such as the Tower Bridge or the Tower. Steps from the subway as well. Beyond check-in and check-out both of which were handled as one would expect did not have any broader experience with the service. Willing to come back if in the neighbourhood.

Stayed here last weekend as a treat for a birthday celebration. I'm sorry to say that the biggest disappointment was the staff. Upon checking in, my sister and I were presented with a double room instead of the twin booked. The response was an immediate blame game. It was our fault-until we showed them our booking. It was the agents fault-wrong again. Can't you share? .......the point is, we don't want to.
So being reasonable people we accepted the bar voucher and headed up for a coffee while they sorted out our room. We were assured that our bags would be sent to the room and our keys sent up. So we waited for an hour in the bar. We were tired and grubby as we had been up since 6am for our flight. After an hour, (at this point it was now just after 4.30), we had enough and accepted that the room keys were not coming. So we headed back down to reception, to be told that our room had been ready some time. The blame game of the twin room booking was replayed and we were promised that we would get a full explanation as to why we had to we were not told our room is ready. We are still waiting for this.
The room was fine, shower was nice. Can't fault the breakfast, but with only one toaster for the entire breakfast room, be prepared to queue.
This place is seriously banking on the reputation on the Hilton name and not on the quality of its customer service.

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights over the valentines weekend back in February and were so impressed with the hotel. We had a great room with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the Shard (which we later visited!) very modern and comfortable and all the little details, i.e. robes/toiletries were all as they should be. Nice cocktail lounge although slightly pricey at £10 for a tiny cocktail. Breakfast was of a good standard and plentiful ranging from cooked breakfast to pastries, cereals etc. Staff very friendly and helpful and we had a great time here. Definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the Shard, looks great at night time when lit up!
