hotel rooms are large, comfortable beds and a bathroom with shower and tub to die for. Free wi-fi and continental breakfast was included, along with 10 pounds sterling to spend while there. This location could not have been more convenient to sights and the tube, and the waterfront with the Tower of London and the London Bridge just two blocks...

This is the 2nd Apex Hotel I've stayed at in 4 years. The first was Apex Temple Court and the it was amazing. Well City of London didn't disappoint.

The service in this hotel is by far the best I have received in any hotel. Nothing is too much trouble for the efficient, friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are very comfortable. Excellent location 2 mins from Tower Hill underground station. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. It was our 10 year anniversary and they made it extra special by upgrading us to a beautiful suite and adding some delicious complimentary cheesecake into the mix! We stayed in a junior suite which had plenty of room, was nicely furnished and was spotlessly clean. Furthermore, we weren't woken by any noise...

First thing to say there is no heart to this hotel. Reception & check in was friendly although wanted ID even though I was staying on a work trip & booked via a corporate booking agency. Surprisingly I don't carry my passport on trips to London! Lift is round the back. And it's only 1 lift for 7 floors. Waiting...

Loved this place for super friendly and helpful staff, lovely rooms, excellent breakfast and it all felt less corporate than other London hotels in this area. Corner Room 123 had a enormous terrace, could have had a spectacular drinks party if I had known. Only small downside was glass door in bathroom let the light in very early (even with...

Perfectly located near to the Tower of London and with beautiful rooms. Also a tube station is within 5 minutes of walking. The personal is helpful and friendly. The price is quite high but hey we're talking about London.

The hotel was conveniently located by the Tower of London. The room was modern, clean and spacious. Althought the hotel does not have a 'grand entrance', we felt the hotel was ideal for our needs. The staff were very kind and helpful and the hotel laid on extra little 'touches', which were unexpected but gratefully received.

Neighbourhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
