Accommodation Guide for
The City of London
The Apex City of London Hotel, London, EC3
This is a stylish and very modern hotel, part
of a forward thinking hotel group with new and fresh ideas, which offers
excellent accommodation at a very reasonable price - especially at
weekends, when the city (i.e. the financial district) winds down. As they
say, they are indeed stylish and
contemporary, and they cannot be faulted for the convenient central
location. With 130 bedrooms they have done well to preserve the feel of an
intimate boutique hotel which pervades the stylish corridors and the
comfortable rooms! And despite the fact that they have a small and
intimate feel, they are indeed large enough to offer all the facilities
you might expect from a
luxury hotel. This makes the hotel an ideal place to stay either on
business or vacation. Reviews on Tripadvisor.com do suggest bar and food
prices are a little over the odds, but that need not bother you as you
won't be far from places to eat and bars to refresh yourself. More
important, perhaps, is the central location, only a few minutes from the
tube. They have a gym, and offer free Wi-Fi internet access and free local
calls. The hotel's "neighbours" include the Tower of London and St Paul's
Cathedral. You're also within easy reach of the busy streets and boutiques
of the West End.
