The hotel is conveniently located near the Blackfriars tube station. There are some restaurants within walking distance. I had a few issues here, given I have stayed in iHG hotels before. The front desk was cold and disinterested. In fact many, including the concierge, do everything to avoid eye contact in case they have to respond to a question. Expecting... More

Choosing a hotel in London is a minefield but we knew we wanted to be in walking distance of Theatres and some attractions so plumped for the Crowne Plaza which also happened to be well priced at £200 per night. Couldn't fault the location, right across the road from Blackfriars Station and just 0.8 miles from the Theatres on good,... More

A lovely Hotel whch is ideal if you are going to the Excel or the O2. Rooms are a good size and very clean, there is plenty of car park spaces behind the hotel and there is also a multistorey car park. The bar closes early which can be a problem as there is no where close by to get... More

Good business hotel with all of the amenities you would expect. Check in is quite and simple. If your energetic there are city runs shown in the reception upper floor which take in some of the sites. The upper rooms are best and if you get an executive room then lounge access is complimentary. The hotel is opposite Blackfriar tube... More

I was very disappointed in the Crowne Plaza in London.

Very clean, modern hotel, most probably like all the crown plaza hotels in North America, but just in the London I understood what "continental breakfast " really means. Metro station is across the street, it took 40 minutes to get to Gatewick airport. When making reservation online just be careful, breakfast is included only for 2 adults.

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.
