Overnight stay was very good. Room and public areas very clean. Staff very helpful and friendly. Bed very comfy. Breakfast had a fantastic selection of food available and what we chose was good. We were very lucky that we had a wonderful view of Tower Bridge with the Shard behind it. Thank you Luca. Would love to go again.

Quite simply a quality hotel with first class service, rooms and a breakfast to die for. The spectacular view of Tower Bridge from the bar is stunning and the staff cannot do enough for you. The rooms were comfortable, clean and contain all the usual expectations. The beds were particularly comfortable. The bathroom again was unfaultable. My next London trip...

We stayed at this hotel as a base for 2 nights, on a theatre trip to London. The hotel is in a brilliant position right next to Tower Bridge. The hotel is very good, the staff very professional and mega friendly. We paid an extra £10 per night for a river view room, it was well worth the money, great...

The location of this hotel is just amazing!!! Can you imagine that you are about 100 meters away from Tower Bridge on one side and that you have a dock with leasure boats on the other side. The hotel itself is pleasant despite rooms are a bit small (which is usual for "old" English hotels). The breakfast room offers a...
