When I travel to London for work I always stay at the South Place. Staff are extremely friendly and welcoming, a small but decent gym, a solid restaurant, and reliably clean, comfortable rooms. It is a welcome change from all the anonymous big-name hotels you find in every city. Plus I will always be grateful because they were so helpful...

Stayed for two nights for my birthday. Received complimentary upgrade and had a lovely room with a twin shower and double bath. Absolutely loved this place. It's modern without being pretentious, it's luxury whilst being welcoming, and it's excellently located without being crowded. The staff were outstanding and friendly (Lauren that means you). We loved the Angler and had the...

We had couple drinks - sat in bar. Very knowledgeable and friendly bar tender - a Russian student. Also ordered a steak sandwich - a bit slow in delivery (20 minutes) - decent size and quality came with fries. Cocktails pricey but normal London prices sandwich worth 11£. Restaurant in hotel has also decent food . Definitely will return

We booked this online for the location. We got much more than that. A really nice hotel, great ambience, friendly staff, AMAZING rooms. The only pity was that we had to go out and sample London rather than stay and enjoy everything the hotel had to offer. The room was very comfortable and well equipped. We slept late. Only downside,...

After booking through booking.com for my first anniversary with my wife I was told that booking.com had cancelled the booking without telling me, the staff were amazing and managed to get me an upgraded room at the same price which was perfect!

Attentive staff. Contemporary, spacious bedrooms with luxurious amenities and facilities. A choice of bars and a `1 minute walk for Moorgate Station. Its the not the cheapest hotel but pound for pound it has to be one of the best hotels in London. If you want excellent service, plush surroundings and a good nights sleep. Stay here.

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.
