Contemporary design in the financial district
The Apex City of London Hotel is a bit larger than its sister establishment by Bank Station, but the scene varies at both properties depending on the day of the week. On weekdays this neighborhood is bustling with business, and on the weekends it's quiet. A sleek lobby and restaurant give the hotel some buzz, but guests seeking more action should venture to other neighborhoods on the weekends.
In the financial and business district of London
The Apex City of London Hotel is located a three-minute walk from the Tower Hill tube station. Tower Hill caters to a good portion of London's financial workers, while also attracting tourists visiting the historic Tower of London and Tower Bridge. It's also a nice area to explore on foot in sunny weather, especially for a walk along the River Thames. There are many markets nearby in addition to major tourist sights.

The Apex City of London Hotel is a contemporary, mid-size chain property located in London's financial district. All 179 rooms have warm lighting, big flat-screen TVs, and bathrooms with separate soaking tubs and walk-in showers. There are many business-friendly amenities too, including free Wi-Fi and local calls, a work desk, and an electric kettle for tea and coffee. The sleek interior design continues in the lobby and in Addendum Restaurant, which serves seasonal fare and has outdoor seating. Small touches (such as a rubber ducky for the tub) make this property feel like more than a typical chain hotel.
