Accommodation Guide for The City of London
(Hotels and Bed and Breakfasts)

The City of London is a small area within London. Indeed, it's the historic core of London around which the modern city grew. The City's boundaries have been constant since the Middle Ages, so it's only a tiny part of the London metropolis: in fact, it's almost exactly one square mile (2.6 km≤) in area. Hence it's known as the City or The Square Mile.

Hotels In 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 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.
