Just around the corner from the Tower of London, the deluxe Apex City of London Hotel is an ideal base for sightseeing: there are four Tube stations less thalf a mile from the hotel, including Tower Hill, a 5-minute walk away.
This stylish hotel is just five minutes' walk from the Tower Millennium Pier, close to Traitor's Gate, where prisoners once entered the Tower of London. From there you can take a Thames Clipper river cruise as far as Greenwich or, to the east, Putney. St Katharine Docks is also worth a visit -- the historic marina has a number of upscale restaurants, boutiques and art galleries. HMS Belfast and the iconic Shard are both nearby (across the river).
The hotel's stylish Addendum restaurant (super-high ceilings, pendant lighting, deep leather seats) is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The à la carte menu serves seasonal grills and seafood, while the bar serves nibbles to accompany the extensive drinks list. There's a children's menu and a private dining option.
Bedrooms aren’t especially spacious, but are a good size for London. All come with free Wi-Fi, Elemis toiletries and a 40-inch flat-screen TV with Sky Sports. Superior Rooms include extras such as bathrobes and slippers, while Deluxe Rooms have a Bose sound system, a balcony and a separate seating area. Junior suites come with Nespresso coffee machines and a separate living/dining area.
