We loved this hotel, standard double room was to a very high standard, spacious and comfortable with a lovely view of the Thames and Tower Bridge. Breakfast was included which was lovely and plentiful, staff were great and really helpful. Easy walk to Tower Tube Station giving great links to the whole city

My husband surprised me with a night in town for Christmas. Lovely hotel, great position and fab views of Tower Bridge. The room was great, I was impressed how quiet it was considering the location. Breakfast was lovely and staff were very conscientious. Can't comment on the value as I didn't see the bill! But I'd definitely go back.

The room was very clean and the staff were pleasant, polite & accommodating. Breakfast staff didn't roll their eyes when I asked for soya milk (dairy intolerant) like I've experienced in other places.

The Guoman Tower ought to be better, but I get the sense it's resting on its laurels (or maybe its location). Slap bang next to Tower Bridge is a great place, especially for tourists, and some of the bedrooms have superb views. The staff are always helpful, and you get a fairly decent breakfast although it's a manic experience. My...

Right next to Tower Bridge, across the road from the Tower of London, this hotel has an excellent location. It doesn't look stunning from the outside (it's a bit concrete and blocky), but if you're sitting inside, the views are incredible - especially if you can get a room with a view of the bridge. The foyer is smart and...

Stayed here over Christmas 23 to 27 December. We did not have the package but ate out. We have stayed here before and believe for us the location with a view of Tower Bridge from your bed, truly breath-taking!, quality of comfort, buffet breakfast, and helpfulness of staff will bring us back again. You know what you are going to...

Pleasantly surprised , this hotel is right beside the tower bridge, a short walk to the subway or ferries and The Tower Castle. We were recommended this hotel by family who visits London on occasion with work. Look for the Internet specials if you are travelling with kids as the have offers for family rooms that would accomodate 3-4 people...

I try to stay here whenever I'm working in London. It has a great location with a supermarket and plenty of good restaurants close by. Perfect location for Thomas Moor Square. The hotel also has a great outside area by the bridge, river and docks. Clean large rooms with RT :)
