We were in London to see the Red Hot Chilli Peppers concert. We were staying for a couple of nights and chose the Tower as it was convenient for getting to the O2 and also for the tube to get around the city for some sightseeing. The room was nice, a good size with a safe and lots of storage....

Stayed here for one night and was really pleasantly surprised. I wasn't expecting much as it was a last minute booking. The receptionist was really welcoming - one of the best welcomes I've ever received at a hotel. The room was of good size, with a bath and shower in the bathroom. The views from the room looked over the...

We stayed at The Tower for a weekend in November and had a very comfortable stay. We were in London to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday and once they found out at check in, we had a bottle of wine and chocolates left in our room with a birthday card - a lovely touch! Our room was fairly small, but...

Perfect location with easy access to both Tube and DLR. Hotel is a bit worn out, heatning was going from freezing one day to sauna level the next. Simple breakfast was not the best I had in London. Facilities ok.

We booked this hotel as part of a theatre trip, and to be honest we did get what we paid for. The room was okay, it was clean with a view over the river, I wouldn't say the bed was massively comfortable but I could cope foe one night. Reception is chaotic at check in, probably due to the reception...

We stayed here for two nights to attend a business event. The room was small and the sink in the bathroom was cracked. Breakfast was chaotic and the buffet left out far too long without being refreshed. My bread actually caught fire in the toaster. That has to be a first. And to top it all; I was presented with...
