Map & Directions

The hotel is an hour by taxi from Gatwick Airport or Heathrow Airport and a little more by train. From Heathrow, take the Piccadilly line to South Kensington and then change to the District line for a train to Tower Hill. From Gatwick, take the train to Victoria and then the District line to Tower Hill. The hotel is less than five minutes’ walk from Tower Hill underground station (District and Circle lines) and Fenchurch Street railway station, for mainline connections.

Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Hidden in a quiet side street 10 minutes' walk from the Tower of London, the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel London - Tower of London puts guests right in the heart of The City. It's a modern property set among century-old buildings on Pepys Street, named after the famous diarist Samuel Pepys. Inside is just as modern -- light pours into the lobby through a striking curved glass ceiling and (fittingly) there's a library of books for guests to peruse while they tuck into their signature DoubleTree cookie or grab a drink at the lobby bar.

Set in The City, it's an obvious choice for business travellers, but the position is also great for sightseeing. It's within a 20-minute walk from some of London's biggest attractions, including St Paul's Cathedral, Borough Market and the Tower of London, and the West End is 30 minutes away by tube. The hotel is a couple of blocks from Tower Hill underground station, providing city-wide access via the District and Circle lines, and just a little further from Tower Gateway DLR station, with easy connections to Canary Wharf.

The Sky Lounge on the 12th floor gets "top marks" from The Daily Telegraph for 360-degree views "to make you weep", which take in the cityscape and nearby Tower Bridge. The open-air terrace is over-18s only from 6pm and closes at midnight, but the glass-walled bar area stays open until 2am (Monday-Saturday). A lunch menu is served until 5pm, and there are flatbreads, sweet potato fries and charcuterie platters to keep hunger at bay while you sample the martini menu. Take note: queues can be lengthy in good weather and there is no preferential access for hotel guests. There's also The City Café by the lobby, which opens for breakfast and international brasserie-style dishes at dinner, and a 24-hour fitness centre.

Guest rooms are comfortable, with contemporary furniture and a slightly corporate feel. All are equipped with free Wi-Fi and iMacs, which work as TVs or for surfing the internet (guests get the first 10 pages of printing for free). Opt for an Executive room on the ninth and tenth floors for free breakfast, late checkout and access to the executive lounge where there are afternoon drinks and nibbles. Suites are even more generous, offering all this plus a complimentary mini bar (restocked daily). Some rooms overlook the inner courtyard, so do consider an upgrade if you'd like a view.

From the press:
"The lobby is groovy: 2001: A Space Odyssey meets 70s air terminal, with revolving shows by Whitechapel Gallery students and a bookstand curated by John Sandoe" -- The Daily Telegraph

Excellent facilities. If you can upgrade to King Executive then it is worth spending the money.

I liked the look of the property and my room. It was small but suited my needs for the night.

My only complaint is that the staff constantly reminded me that I booked the room through an outside agency (they kept saying Expedia) and kept trying to add things on to the bill. I asked for an extra hour to check out and they wanted me to pay £10 per hour. They also tried to get me to buy a breakfast package that seemed a little costly. I was just there for an overnight layover, so I didn't need a lot of extras. Also, my room was next to the fitness room, which wasn't a problem until someone kept dropping the weights.
