Area served
We are on the doorstep of Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. We are near the DLR to the gigantic O2 Arena and London City Airport. 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.

Made our London trip so much more memorable

When we first walked in to our room, we were abit dissapointed because our third floor window directly faces into another building. But then again, this is the City of London, so I guess the chances of wide open views are quite limited. The room was also smaller than i expected, but then the bathroom makes up by being almost the same size as the bedroom itself. Everyday, there will be 2 new bottles of complimentary water and cookies in the room, and that is a nice gesture to come back to. The hotel is located 5 mins walk from Tower Hill subway station and also a DLR station (to go to Canary Wharf). It also takes us just15 mins to walk to Shoreditch High Street and the London Bridge. If you want to try staying nearer to the hip East London, this is a good value for your pound hotel.

Good Choice for City Trip

This is 2nd time we are stayed in this hotel, it was as good as the first time we were there, the hotel is nearby the Tower Hill subway station which enable us to travel anywhere easily. We are typically likes the room decoration and color, toiletries, bed and pillows. Only kick back is the no scenery view from our room.

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.
