Amazing location

I had a great experience from beginning to end! First off all...I had just come off a 11 hour flight from the states, and was tired and worn out and a little early for check in. The minute I walked in I was greeted with huge smiles and Kennedy at the front desk was awesome. He noticed I was tired and frazzled, and called looking for a room to get me into right away...even upgraded me. The room was pretty large for a London hotel room, had a king bed and a sitting area with couch and tv. The gym had state of the art equipment and a great radio to keep u pumped while u work out. The location was awesome! A short five minute walk to the tower hill subway stop, Tower of London, London bridge, leadenhall market and financial district. Lots of places to eat for both sit down and takeaway, as well as local bars and pubs. I had a great stay, and highly recommend it.

Unexpectedly fantastic

After traveling for so many years as a digital nomad, I've come to think of hotels as a necessary evil when transitting through a place and there's no cost-effective Airbnb's nearby. London is a perfect example, and this hotel exceeded all my expectations. Friendly staff, super clean rooms, and actually good (and affordable) room service! Plus, it's clear they have a bit of humor, and they offer a bunch of free snacks that are replenished each day.

Cruising

The staff was very helpful. I did not know my way around in London. Daniel took time out of his bust schedule to give me directions to and from the hotel. Also he made arrangements for a shuttle bus to get me to my cruise ship. Thanks for all the help Betty Baldwin

Immaculate

I went there for 2 nights, shared a room with my girl friend. It was very difficult to find a hotel that had twin beds so this one was one of the few. The bathroom was quite big, very clean. The location was in the financial district and right next to the London Tower and the tube. The staff were super friendly and helpful and I would come back to that hotel any day.

good location

The hotel is near the subway Tower of London, surrounded by Hilton and other hotels, it's not bad value for money, but unfortunately the hotel staff on the first day to get our room was on a construction site, and is located on the second floor, will be awakened in the morning, Fortunately, the timely replacement of the back of the room, surrounded by only a small supermarket.

great place to stay for the money

Our hotel stay at Apex was very pleasant. Located in walking distance to the London Bridge, it was definitely convenient for our overnight layover. The staff was extremely helpful, courteous and accommodating. Only complaint was that it is situated in the business district which is extremely quiet on the weekends and restaurants/bars shut down early. On the flip side, we would have paid substantially more to stay closer to the main tourist attractions.
