Apex City of London Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

For the most part it was pretty good stay. Only drawback is another hotel was working on an addition next door so fierst thing in the morning I was awoken to loud clanging. Luckily it was a holiday weekend so they only worked a half day. Only ate once at the hotel and it was on my last day. At first didn’t think it was going to be a lot of food but left the restaurant on a full stomach. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others it’s a short walk to the Tower of London, bridge and a short walk to the tower hill station so you can go wherever you want in London.

Early checkin and late checkout were a real lifesaver! Staff was helpful with recommendations and helping sort out my Christmas transportation. Hotel is in a great location, near Tower Hill tube station and the Tower of London! There’s a Pret, Starbucks, etc and Tesco all within easy walking distance too.

This was a fabulous hotel two blocks from tube stop and centrally located with awesome staff. I would definately stay here again and recommend this hotel to a friend.

I stay here every time I go to London now. Great price. Great hotel. Great location.

Great location, great beds and very nice staff. The room was very clean. This hotel is walking distance to the train and Tower of London. Enjoyed our stay very much and definitely stay again.

Very good experience except wait staff for breakfast seemed to be new and somewhat unorganized.

Staff was amazingly helpful and friendly. Great location. 2-3 minute walk to Tube and Tower of London.

I can't say enough about this hotel. It's clean, comfortable, spacious (for a London hotel). The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, especially Camilla at the front desk! Lots of complimentary items in the room every day, including bottled water, the usual toiletries and tea & coffee, but also cookies, hot chocolate, sometimes Jelly Beans or Pringles. Also bathrobes and slippers to use. One day (and we did stay 10 nights) we were left, in our room, a thank you note with some Petit Fours from Guest Services to say "thanks" for choosing the Apex. The hotel is within a 5-minute walk to the Tower of London, Tower Bridge and The Monument. Even nearer is the Tower Hill Underground Station or Bus stops. Although guide books will tell you this is the financial area (which it is) and closes at weekends and evenings (not true). There were a few shops/pubs that didn't open at the weekends, but there were sufficient pubs within a very short walk that were open over the weekend, and pubs are the best place to eat in England anyway. But again, only a short walk, bus or tube ride away from more choices.

Nice hotel, rooms are very clean and staff was incredible. When I stayed they were remodeling the bar area, look forward to going back to check out the remodel.

Loved the location - easy access to everything. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Didn't really like the food in the restaurant- very expensive and poor quality. But overall - excellent place to stay in London!!

The front desk service was exceptional. We had instant help with our bags, were checked in & out speedily and the concierge was charming and helpful with wonderful restaurant suggestions. The rooms were a little small but beautifully appointed and plenty big enough for a couple. The hotel location was perfect for tourists! It was a 4 minute walk to the Tower of London and the tube stop of the same name. I can't recommend Apex City of London highly enough.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. The staff were very friendly and the check-in was quick. It was close to the Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. It was in short walking distance to many reataurants and bars. There were also quite a few shops nearby. It was also close to a main thoroughfare, so getting a cab or Uber will be easy. The only negative about the place was that the Four Seasons across the street is doing some renovations to the outside which block off the street. So the Uber driver had to come a different way a couple times. Other than that, we had a pleasant stay!

We had a wonderful time in London for Christmas, The weather was outstanding and the concierge at the Apex City of London Hotel made our trip amazing from Christmas Dinner to tours of London and many other aspects of the trip. They made us feel like celebrities. Every aspect of our stay at the Hotel was wonderful. Ana Marin and Sabrina took great care of us as well as the rest of the staff. Room service was prompt and very good. The room was kept spotless by their staff and we were extremely close to many of London's must see spots.

Charming Staff help us during our stay, Clean room, comfortable bed, excellent free wifi, premium bath amenities, nearby Tower Of London, great reastaurant nearby at St katherine Docks and hotel is very good value for the money. I am very happy staying for 14 nights at Apex Hotel City London!

Incredible staff - close to underground and some activities

Perfect location and within walking distance of cool sights.

Just returned from a stay at the Apex hotel Nothing but great things to say about the hotel. Very clean, staff is very nice, bed is comfy, food is great and the location is amazing. You will love staying here.

I arrived at the Apex early Thursday morning October 28th. The receptionist was delightfully friendly. She was able to secure at least one room before 10:00 and the other at 14:00 for our party of three. The rooms were clean, and the bathrooms were large. The staff were welcoming and attentive. I will stay at the Apex the next time I'm in London for sure. Great trip!!!

Great hotel right near Tower Hill Underground, Tower of London, and Tower Bridge. Located near several pubs and restaurants. Easy access to all the "sights" of London from Tower Hill Underground Station (five min walk...if that). Room was clean and well attended. Also, as we arrive super early and no room was available; they took our bags so we could go out and sightsee. When we were able to check-in the bags were in our room waiting for us...great attention to detail.

The hotel was very nice. It was clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. It's about a 3 minute walk to the tower and tower pier. It's about a 15-20 minute walk to St. Paul's Cathedral. Everything else is a bit further out. However, the tower hill tube station is about 5 minute walk from the hotel. The subway in London is real easy to use. The only thing we didn't enjoy was the food in the restaurant hotel. It was pretty bad but the drinks were good. However, there are plenty of restaurants in the area so that wasn't an issue.
