Hotel Info

London's West End theatres, shopping, lively bars, cafes and fine restaurants are just a short tube ride or taxi ride away from The Tower Hotel along with major tourist attractions including Tower Bridge itself, the London Eye, museums, Greenwich Palace and observatory, Hampton Court and many others. Offering value for money comfortable accommodation and the Guoman tradition of exemplary service, The Tower Hotel is the ideal hotel for discerning business and leisure visitors to London. For a real treat and that something special book your next stay in London at the fabulous The Tower Hotel and enjoy.Getting to the hotel: the hotel is easily from Tower Hill underground station, by road or rail from London's London Bridge, Cannon Street and Liverpool Street stations. Heathrow airport is easily accessed using the underground tube network or by road.Local tips: take advantage of the nearness of Tower Bridge to explore it. The Bridge was built during the Victorian era and was designed to open up and allow the big container ships that dominated the London docks at the time, sometimes opening up to 50 times a week. Nowadays with far less traffic on the river London Bridge tends to open only a few times a week. Ask staff at reception for further information and local guidance.

Good location bedroom not four star

Good location bedroom with plenty marks and not up to four star mark! Also water in shower not good don't know what it was but hair never fresh after shower always a layer on my hair. Water must not be filtered well. Hidden costs like 5pound extra to get your breakfast dropped up to the room or even a glass of wine. However good location and staff very nice.

A Very Good Hotel

A very good overnight stay. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were to a good standard of decoration, with sufficient space, although tea & coffee making facilities would have been nice. One downside is that the hotel is situated near very busy roads and although there was no problem with traffic noise in the room, it is not easy to access the hotel from Tower Hill tube station.

The best thing about my stay was...

The breakfast was very good.

Tower hotel

Location was excellent. Very disappointed as this was a present. Check in very busy and no queue control. Room small and tired. Three lifts not working and fourth only stopped at certain floors. Breakfast was chaotic for hotel of this standard - only one toaster for whole restaurant, tea poured straight into mug by waiter no teapots etc. staff were very nice but I have stayed in much lower starred hotels than this i.e. premier inns who are far more organised and deliver a much better breakfast! This certainly was not worth the money.

The way a hotel should be.

My stay was an end of March Saturday to Monday break. I booked on-line and had no previous experience of the hotel. Briefly put the location was second to none with fantastic views on all sides. The staff without exception were polite, helpful and most of all pleasant and cheerful every time they were approached. They clearly enjoyed interacting with the guests and could not be faulted during my stay. I booked breakfast and being an early riser was able to find a table and enjoy the exceptional range of food, the service and the views from the restaurants over the Thames and Marina. The hotel seemed very busy and later risers had to queue for a table. The hotel is probably nearing a time for some renovation but this in no way detracted from the quality of the experience and the exceptional staff. Normal B&B rates seemed to be around £240 a night per room but I found a good deal so I've marked it 10/10 for value and quality. It would be perfect for a tourist with Tower Bridge, Tower of London, The South Bank and Borough Market either just outside of the door or only minutes away. I'm looking forward to returning later this summer. The Hotel group should be proud of the standards being achieved.

The best thing about my stay was...

The location and staff.

Top of the Tower

I was completely speecless from the minute I walked through the door to be offered a glass of champagne and the room, breakfast and staff were all outstanding. The views were breathtaking and the whole experience made our weekend. Will definitely stay again and we are already looking at booking it again very soon.

The best thing about my stay was...

The quality of the hotel, the staff and the views.

Excellent location, stunniong views

Check in was a little busy, as was breakfast, which is why this is not a 10, but staff were extremely helpful. I asked for a room with a view and had a picture postcard view of Tower Bridge, well worth the stay for that alone. Room was spacious and comfortable, very clean and the breakfast was also very good.
