A quick entry for today.
After the conference mum and I caught a bus to the south side of the Thames primarily to check out Shakespeare's Globe. I can say its not really an attraction you go to see from the outside but being so late in the day (around 6-7pm) it was too late for tours and we weren't up to a play so wonder past we did (don' …

Our trip started last friday, with a tearful goodbye at Belfast City Airport. After months (perhaps years?) of preparation, of wishing, of hoping...it finally began. Slight drama just before we got on the plane - I lost my passport, luckily Stevie had it in his hand! Nerves and excitement had gotten the better of me I think as I consequently lost …
It's 12:00 and we just got to the hotel. Went to the arrivals lounge at Heathrow and took a shower, ate a little and freshened up. Got to the shuttle counter and only had to wait about 15 minutes before they called for us. Once in the van is where it got messy. Left without a problem, but then the driver tells us that the M-4 (major expressway) is …
Headed off early Saturday morning to London where I met up with my partner who was in London on business. Went to see a couple of shows (Side by Side by Sondheim; Little Shop of Horrors) and paid a visit to the Kew Gardens. Stayed at the Apex City of London Hotel - very good.

Historical Traveler Reviews Apex City Of London
Apex Hotels nevel disappoint!
This is our second stay in an Apex hotel (the first was in Edinburgh) and I can't wait for the 3rd time! After staying in a million older, cheesy and overpriced hotels the Apex hotels are a breath of fresh air. The prices are a steal for the level of service and modern, thoughtful rooms.
This location was a bit out of the way - but I will stay there again next time regardless. Very close to the Tower of London (great views at night from Tower Hill Tube station entrance) and about a 5 min walk from the closest tube station.
Love it - love it - can't wait to go again :)
I was in London for a day and somewhat un-prepared. I had however made a reservation at the nearest hotel to the venue I was going to be at for that day, and that was the Apex Hotel in London. The night before I sped through the online registration, which was quick and easy, somewhat too easy for my taste, in the sense that I complete the reservation in under a minute! I didn't really get to see the hotel properly online, so in the back of my head I had a somewhat "Mini-Ikea" idea of this hotel. I knew it was new, and so best guesses for the price I paid would suggest tacky furniture and poor quality.
What a great find
I went to the Apex after leaving another hotel in London because it was quite horrible. The Apex, on the other hand, was excellent! The rooms were comfortable and spacious. The bathroom was nice with a good size tub (with a rubber ducky) and a separate shower. I got an excellent rate off of Expedia. The hotel is located very near the Tower Hill tub station and almost across the street from the London Tower and the Tower Bridge. The food was great and the service in the hotel was wonderful and friendly. The concierge was extremely knowledgeable and helpful.
I'm looking forward to my next trip there and I will definitely stay at the Apex again.
I was very lucky to have come across this hotel at such a low rate - I would definitely recommend it to anybody who likes a bit of luxury. The room was gorgeously modern, the shower was spacious (and by the way, you do get shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, moisturizer, towels, bathrobes and slippers - you may have to request them but they're complimentary). Breakfast was waaaaay overpriced for what it was, but theres a pub across the street which does a better breakfast for not even a fraction of the price. Facilities were cool - the gym is state of the art, and we were the only ones using it on a saturday evening - the sauna and steam room were great too. The internet access is a bit pricey - £5 for one hour, but the reception staff are great. Definitely a great hotel for business and pleasure alike!
Hotel is in a great location if doing business in the Financial district & good value at weekend rates if you are a tourist (Tower Hill tube is nearby). The room design is pleasant with a comfortable king bed, desk, & sofa. The bathroom has a good size walk in shower & a bath. The DVD player is a bonus, and internet access is available for a charge. The room service menu is 'brasserie style', with items such as sandwiches & chips, but little if you are on a healthy diet. Breakfast is the usual expensive London rates but you can just chose one or two items a la carte. Toiletries are good, but ladies be warned, no body lotion or conditioner, so take your own. Also no bathrobe . Service was fine, especially at check in. All in all, a pleasant hotel if you can get a discounted rate.
The Apex is definately one of the best hotels I have stayed at in London. The rooms are very comfy and and spacious and all the staff are really helpful. I thought the bathroom was great, it was very clean and I really loved their bubble bath and shampoo. There was even a rubber duck included! The breakfast buffet was also very good with loads of choice.
The only downside was the dimness of the lighting which made it difficult to read. Also the plug for the hairdryer was too far away from the mirror. Apart from that it was a great hotel in a geat location.
Stayed for a weekend while in London to visit the Boat Show. Hidden away behind the Tower of London this is a real find - just opened two months ago, its on the edge of the City, so quiet at the weekend - really peaceful and serene - the only drawback is that surrounding restaurants tend to be closed Sat/Sun but we walked acros Tower Bridge to Butlers Wharf (turn left coming off the Bridge) and found lots of interested eateries (10mins away). Reception booked restaurent, rang and checked it was open, printed menu from website and organised taxi for us. Thanks Owen Murphy (Assistant Manager... great service with a welcoing smile and he's Irish ,of course!)
I stayed at this hotel on 23 December (Room 132) and got an excellent rate of £65 (incl) via Apex's own website. I have to say I was most impressed with the size and standard of the room and, also, with the cleanliness (and I am quite fussy). I found the staff very helpful and accommodating. Also, location very convenient for anyone who wants to be near Tower Bridge - hotel is 5 minutes from Tower Hill tube station.
Having had my fingers burnt before with so-called "luxury" hotels, I was more than a little wary of the Apex, especially as I couldn't find any reviews. Luckily I was delighted by this quiet little refuge, even with reduced price room.
Function or form ?
Hmmm. OK for a night at the right ( discount) price but definitely not a must go again. Seems to have a form over function approach here. Nice, clean room but - small, no full length mirror, bath more like a hip bath, large shower area with tiny, trendy shower jet meaning only an inch of you gets wet at any time. Miniscule and too few towels, soggy pillows. Woefully inadequate trendy downlighting, with no desk light and no light in ceiling above desk. Quiet, though, with very friendly and helpful staff.
