Nice one-night break
Staff were lovely. Hotel very covid secure, good view from room which was in nice condition. Duvet was a bit thin and no blanket, so was a bit cold and didn't sleep well because of this. No heated towel rail in bathroom, so stepping out the shower was a bit chilly.

Great hotel
Really nice hotel in easy reach of The Tower of London. Great access to the rest of London as well, tube station alongside. No outside noise in room, either from tube station, traffic or other guests. Room was very comfortable and a good size. Would book again

Friendly staff but incompetent and unsanitary
I decided to book this hotel for my birthday with my partner, I choose it as the pictures I saw were very appealing to me. Upon arrival I was told I had to pay a £50 security fee that I had no clue about therefore took me aback. However, in this instance I was charged twice, so I had to go back into the lobby once I had realised to get a refund. The pictures of the room were completely different and bigger than the room I was given which was a big disappointment but it was still nice enough. Sadly there was a lot of dust particles which I believe is very unsanitary especially in a time like this so a deep clean is needed. Once I had left the hotel I realised I was charged £71 for no reason, it turns out one of the staff charged the wrong card which is really incompetent of them. Again had I not confronted them I would not have got my money back. Despite the inconveniences the staff were nice and friendly and gave me complimentary chocolates and a nice note for my birthday.

Fair 4.0
Not all that..
The look of the place is visually very nice but when it comes to sleeping. It’s a different matter. There is light coming from everywhere. There was a strip light under the tv we had no way of turning off so had to unplug it at the wall. There’s a panel next to the bathroom that is constantly lit up. An alarm clock next to the bed that doesn’t dim. Automatic wardrobe lights that will turn on with the slightest of movements in the bed if it’s even a little bit open. We spent around 20 minutes trying to find ways to make the room dark for us to sleep. Then trying to get to sleep was just as difficult. Bed was very uncomfortable with 1 thin pillow each for the 2 of us and 1 spare in the room. For me the views didn’t compensate for the poor 2 nights sleep we had

Good Hotel
I stay here regularly for work, at present is is my hotel of choice when working in The City. Well priced for the location, clean, and good efficient service. Plenty of nice places to eat within easy walking distance as well.

Good value for money
Lovely hotel, fairly new looking. Staff were friendly and helpful. My negatives were small issues; - Pillows were too soft but I asked for a firmer option which they provided - There was no house keeping on one of the days I stayed. I stayed 4 nights, they explained this was due to covid - Inside the fridge there was something sticky which ended up on my water bottles All in all quite small issues. The pros definitely outweight the cons. There were good amenities in the rooms, robes, slippers, coffee machine and pods, Elemis products in the bathrooms.
