We are on the doorstep of Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. We are near the gigantic O2 arena. We're not much further from the bustle and boutiques of the West End. London city hotels have never been this good.

Area description
Apex City of London hotel is near Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. We're close to the heart of the financial and business district, which means we're surrounded by London landmarks, including St Paul's Cathedral, the Bank of England and the Swiss Re Building, better known as The Gherkin. Getting here by mainline or underground train couldn't be easier. Tower Hill and Aldgate are the closest London Underground stations to the hotel. Get out at either one of these stops and we're only a short walk away. Fenchurch Street Station is the nearest mainline station to us. Once again, it is only a few minutes by foot to our door. Tower Gateway is the closest Docklands Light Railway stop to the hotel. Across the road from Tower Hill tube station, it is well within walking distance of the hotel.

Happy again

Stayed here for the third time, and we happy again! Location is particularly good - near some of the big attractions, plenty of walks along the Thames, and five minutes to the Tube when we needed to go further afield. We expect to have a fourth stay next year. Only hassle was that the room rate when we wanted to stay an extra night at short notice had become astronomical.

London treasure

My husband and I checked into this hotel after a tour around the UK. On check-in we were given an upgrade because 'we were staying for 7 days'. The room was delightful, spacious, clean, separate toilet and shower, daily complimentary tea, coffee, milk, biscuits, snacks and water, as well as free wifi. Despite construction work across the street, our room was quiet. We were offered a 25% discount on breakfast. The room was cleaned daily and fresh towels supplied. The staff were friendly, polite and helpful at all times. The hotel is a minute away from Tower Hill station, which is on the green and yellow lines, making access to any other line or station very easy..

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

If staying in London for a few days, buy a 7day Oyster Pass. It costs £36 of which £5 is the deposit. It allows unlimited travel on any train in zone 1 and 2, buses and river boats. This works out far cheaper than paying for single trips or the Oyster top-up card.

Great friendly service, good location from which to explore London

Stayed here 4 nights. Smallish but Comfortable room, modern amenities, good shower and bath!! All staff were most helpful & friendly - esp with advice on places to visit and how to get around London. (3min walk to the Tube - Tower Hill train station). Complimentary wifi worked well.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

Ask for info on the "big bus tour". The hotel sells vouchers for you to get on this "hop-on, hop-off" bus service that will take you to all the main attractions around London. Alternatively you can buy an Oyster Card to catch the tube everywhere. This card allows you to travel on any metro train service for unlimited number of days. You pay £5 for the card and load it with money (usually £10 will get you around 6-10 trips, depending how far you're traveling on each trip). You can top up the card with money if you need to make more trips. Before you leave London, and no longer need the Oyster card, remember to return it to any station Customer Service window, and you will get your original £5 back, aswell as any money remaining on the card which was not used.

Weekend break

Being a business hotel you can pick up some great rates at the weekend making it good value for money. It's not in the centre of London but is just a couple of minutes walk from the underground and the Tower of London and there are a number of bars and restaurants in the immediate area. Staff were great, room spacious - free jelly beans and a good selection of elemis products added to the experience. We were Upgraded to a room with a large outside terrace which also added to what was a great experience overall. This is my third visit and would happily return..

Excellent

Couldn't fault it. Great friendly service. Got an upgraded room for free which was great size, clean, comfortable, stylish with all that you would need and nice products all in the cost which was good value for such a central london location. If this place had a better view (other rooms may have?) I would have scored it 5 star - it was that close.

Ideal for a one nighter, not sure about longer

Stayed at the Apex for a one night stay following my company Christmas party in the city. I got a really good rate online through ratestogo at £104 for a night stay which was only a little more expensive than a local premier inn so was happy to pay more for a better hotel. The room was modern, clean and would recommend for a short stay. The window looked out onto the opposite brick wall which wasnt great but i could cope with it for one night but if a weekend or longer stay then i could see it becoming an issue and depressing. People were really nice on front desk and the reception area was fresh, clean and modern.
