Chose this hotel purely because of location and hoping to get tower bridge view....no such luck I got the dock behind which was ok I guess. For the price was hoping for room with at least a fridge but alas that was not there either so warm water it was! No hot choc to drink (would expect that in luxury...

Good location, friendly staff, but the rooms are a bit dated. Superb Room service at night! Area around the hotel is nice with restaurants, cafés and pubs. Easy access to the Subway and of course the Tower Bridge.

Ideal location for London with comfortable well appointed rooms, great customer service and value for money. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel .Could do with a bit of updating but that is a small fault as the rooms are well appointed.

I end up stopping here too often on business trips. It ought to be brilliant. I've never had a great experience, something goes wrong every time, it takes ages to get anything to happen and the staff are largely indifferent. Rooms are adequate and OK price by London standards - but it could bve so much more.

The Hotel in appearance does not contribute to the important environment of Tower Bridge.The Hotel imposes itself on the Thames right beside Tower Bridge. A first class location as it backs on to St Katherines Dock with it's outstanding calm and smart environment. The hotel bedroom (Eighth Floor) being perfectly adequate but in need of modernisation. Bathroom needs a makeover....

I stood at the Guoman in October. Room is clean and nice and the view on the Tower bridge is outstanding. Good breakfast, polite and hospitable staff. Good location near the dock and the subway. See you next time

Stayed here for our Anniversary in a tower view suite. The view was amazing. Definitely worth the extra money. We ordered room service which was cheap and the food was lovely!!! The room was beautifully decorated and very clean. The reception area is amazing- when entering the building we were struck by how beautiful the inside was. The outside of...

Pleasant enough hotel with a nice setting. Stayed here over a busy weekend when both reception and lift use were put to the test. Smaller sized bedroom with a limited view of the bridge. There is a lot going on in this part of London so you feel part of the action if a little cheated by the accommodation.

This hotel has a great location with some iconic views over Tower Bridge and St Katherine's Dock. It is a large hotel and can be a little busy and impersonal but the staff work hard to be friendly and helpful. The quality of the rooms, however, is patchy. The first room we were allocated was extremely small and as I...
