    Great location”

    I said for two nights on my own while travelling around the UK. This is a brilliant location, right by Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. The outside bar/restaurant seating was fabulous for people watching. It’s a vibrant location. The room I had was a standard double which was quite small, which wasn’t really an issue for me since I was on my own. Everything was nice and clean and there was some painting etc going on. The staff were friendly and efficient. I did not eat in the hotel so cannot comment on the quality of the food. I would definitely stay there again

    The view from a bridge side room especially at night is spectacular and worth the extra money when compared to a river side view (I was initially placed in a river side view in error). The rooms are only slightly dated but comfortable. I'd definitely stay again.

    Ok, not worth the price ”

    Good location, has underground parking onsite, and many amendities. Poor concerige service, many don’t speak English fluently. Our room, which was prepaid, wasn’t available when we go there, gave us an upgraded room but we had to pay extra. If we didn’t upgrade, we probably wouldn’t have gotten a room. There was a club lounge available for anyone with an executive room, and was supposed to offer a more quiet area, but they don’t restrict access to adults only, so there families with their young kids screaming and running around.

    Room good (executive), little small but that's England, great bed. Sunday breakfast had the longest hotel breakfast waiting line ever. Luckily lounge breakfast was ok. Not good, but ok. Elevators in this hotel really needs a brush up. Several times during our 2 night stay we had to wait long, and by breakfast time we eventually took the stairs.

Found long blonde hairs on cushion on bed. But staff where very helpful and attentive. Had a meal in the brasserie, had to have the table cleaned after we sat down, the food was good which reflected the price. Overall not a bad stay.

    Our stay was great and we really enjoyed the accommodation. We would like to acknowledge the invaluable help of the 2 men at the concierge especially the man in the evening shift of 3 May 2014, Mr. Myles. We took a very early tour to Windsor Castle, Stonehenge and Oxford University in the morning of 3 May 2014 that we forgot to book our Airport Express to LHR for 4 May 2014 to catch a 6:15 AM flight. We have to be picked up as early as 3:30AM of 4 May. We arrived in the hotel from the tour at almost 10:00PM, too late to book an Airport Express and almost in a panic mode. Mr. Myles browsed through his handbook and booked us a taxi at almost the same price of an Airport Express. Thanks to Mr. Myles.

    The view from a room facing Tower Bridge is stunning. But the room is very old and shabby. The aircon does not work properly and staff could only offer a fan (which did not arrive). So, over priced for what you get.

    Dear Trevor, Thank you ever so much for staying at The Tower Hotel. I am sorry to read that you did not like the appearance of your room. We are aware about the fact that some of our guests find our rooms a bit old-fashioned, therefore we are constantly doing refreshments to increase our guest satisfaction. Unfortunately we do not have any air conditioning in our rooms. The hotel has a generalise cooling and heating system, which cannot be controlled in the room. We are not advertising any Air conditioning on Expedia or any other booking website. However I am sorry to read that you did not receive a fan from our staff. I already spoke with our reception and housekeeping team to avoid such issues in the the future. We would be more than happy if we still have the pleasure to welcome you back at The Tower Hotel.

    My girlfriend and I were guests in the Tower Hotel for 6 nights over New Year. The hotel itself is right next to the Tower Bridge and in walking distance to the tube station "Tower Hill". Its a huge hotel (800 rooms) and we were queuing ~20 min for CheckIn because of a Cheerleader group for LNYDP. Very nice and efficient staff member who upgraded us to an executive room. Clean room, good bed,more than enough power sockets and the auxiliary services were tremendous.

    Great Location Excellent view of St Catherines Dock. Sadly Breakfast was expensive & Cold £12.00 each. Although the food served for the wedding was lovely and Hot. Drinks at the bar are what I would expect for the Location. City Prices. Check out time was 12 noon but by 11.15 they were knocking on our door for access to clean. Two different housekeepers knocked even though the do not distrube sign was switched on. Lots of nice views Tower Of London from various parts of the hotel. Just a short walk to the Tower of London & Tower Bridge. Would Stay Again.

    the service is awful!!!!”

    I booked a room with the tower bridge view ( it is more expensive than other rooms ) When I checked in, the staff was nice, but never mentioned the room I booked was sold out. So when I went up to my room, I realized it was not a room I booked. After I told them, they admitted their mistake, and promised to change another room the next day. (they said, there is no room in that moment. How could it be possible?? I booked the room in advance!!!) so I SHOULD stay a room I didn't want the day...It was awful!!! I booked there to see a beautiful night view~ but I couldn't!! Actually, they ruined my trip!! After that, they repeated other mistakes...their staffs don't communicate well! I should explain the situation again and again..but no difference! very arrogant...even supervisor said 'sorry' but the staff who made a mistake didn't say sorry at all. (I think it was not a mistake! they cheated me! how come do they tell me the truth from the first time?) the worst hotel ever!!!
