Apex City of London Hotel

New Favorite in London

The Apex City of London is not your typical hotel. It's chic and modern with a hip vibe. From the moment I entered the lobby, I knew I had found my new favorite in London. Our "City Room" with two twin beds was small in size, but absolutely perfect for two friends traveling together. The beds were by far the most comfortable of our trip. The bathroom was beautiful with separate soaking tub and walk-in rain shower, not to mention fully stocked with luxurious Elemis toiletries. We felt totally at home and pampered! Location is great too, very near Tower of London and the Tower Hill tube stop. Safe and quiet business area. Can't wait to stay again!

Club Quarters Hotel

Would definitely stay here again

Great location, comfortable size, nice amenities, friendly staff. Queen size bed was comfortable and the bells of St Paul's Cathedral were a welcome sound. Will definitely stay at this hotel on my next visit to London.

Good Hotel London

A quirky little hotel with flaws but a good hotel

We liked this weird little place, but it does have its flaws. The location is fine, you can take the tram next door to a boat that takes you into London. It is a nice trip. There is a café next door that has a fantastic breakfast. The rates are very good. Now the bad. The rooms are very small and there is no elevator. It is broken and the staff says it may never be fixed. The roof top b at was never opened when we were there. Overall a good value and location.

The Principal London

Outstanding Hotel and Staff, can't wait to go back

I've stayed at this hotel long ago when it was the Russell Hotel, which was a great experience and this stay was above exceptional. We encountered some minor issues with an outlet not working and they immediately brought us an extension cord to use another outlet. The double double room can fit a family of 4 comfortably but the set back is not much room for 4 bags of luggage but we made do very easily. The Doorman, Georgie, I believe his name was, is EXCELLENT! Our kids, 10 and 11, adored him as he was very friendly and easy going to talk with. Concierge staff were equally excellent and helpful. Loved that they kept Fritz's bar as it is a charming spot to get a nightcap before going back to your room. The maids were excellent, any request we had, the happily fulfilled and then some. It seemed the whole staff went out of their way to be kind and helpful. Everything was beautiful in the newly done rooms and I was very pleased to see they kept the original marble first floor, it has and still is very stunning. I can't wait to go back, this is always going to be my hotel of choice.
