I arrived late at night and was placed in 055... which I found out is below ground level. No windows, but otherwise a nice room with two tv.. and a large bathroom. The next day I asked for another room - the hotel complied and I was moved to the 7th floor. Smaller room but with daylight.

I couldn't fault this hotel, I booked 5 twin rooms on the special offer of Dinner bed and Breakfast. The food was lovely, even included a glass of wine! Very good value indeed. Very accomodating, helpful and able to make suggestions for us.

Have stayed here twice recently, once for business and once for pleasure. The hotel is ideally located for the City, the Tower of London and Tower Hill tube. The rooms are excellent, with large walk in showers. We were upgraded for free, twice. The gym is also very good. Highly recommended.

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.
