Hilton London Tower Bridge
Travel Blogs from London
After a long and very eventful planeride, the transition to vacation mode begins. First stop after a much needed shower, the Fuller's pub near Borough market for some tasty London Pride and Venison and Leek Pie.
So day two started with us waking up to rain. Boo urns! I didn't really pack anything for rain... my runners are mesh... so those we be wet real fast. Oh well I made do, as it wasn't pouring... mostly just drizzled all day. We went on the London Eye today , even though it was overcast and gray, still got some nice views. It was a nice experience. …
... In London, no less! Later, i am back in my flat planning my evening. Bitten by the theater bug, i check to see if any last minute tickets are available for any of the multitude of big productions on in town, but no dice. I resolve to go see a movie instead, and am happy to discover that the British Film Institute is hosting an advance screening of Ron Howard's upcoming movie, Rush, followed by a Q & A with screenwriter Peter Morgan. Sold! Few seats remain, but i book ...
... 4 month (which turned out to be 3 month) great adventure!
- Miami - drag queen leading a rabbit on a lead while his friend pushed a cat in a pram (honest!)
- Guatemala - security guards with guns guarding deliveries of Coca-Cola.
- Belize - machete-wielding teenager leading us through a cow field while we are in our swimmers carrying a rubber ring.
- La Paz - very elderly man with walking stick climbing over the central reservation of a dual carriageway ...

After meeting the family and having a bbq, Craig and I headed into the city to do an organised pub crawl around 5 bars/clubs in London. We met up with our friend Leila who we met in Florence and danced & drank many free shots and drank cheap drinks. Good times! London nightlife is awesome.

Great location and hotel overall still very mod and chic. Bed was uncharacteristically (for Europe) too soft.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton London Tower Bridge
Stay at several hotels all over the UK so thought I would sample the new Hilton at Tower Bridge whilst in London. Modern hotel with excellent facilities and friendly staff. Lots to do in the local area. Will definitely be staying again!
In the price range this is one of the best hotels in London I have stayed in. It is in quite a good location for business, just a short walk to Tower Bridge. There is a pleasant shopping and dining area very close by. I got a better rate from the hotel's own website than quoted by other websites.
Nice, modern hotel
Just come back from a one night stay at the Hilton Tower Bridge. It's in a good location (London Bridge tube station 5 minutes away) with London Bridge, Tower Bridge and The London Dungeon all close by.
My room wasl spotlessly clean, modern and very comfortable. Check in/out was quick and friendly.
I was there for work and the hotel easily accomodated approx 150 of us for a drinks reception before we moved on elsewhere.
Wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
Near Tower bridge and London Bridge tube station, it's a new hotel in a good location, pub and cafe's opposite, restaurants at Butler's Wharf just a ten minute walk along the Thames path.
Myself and 3 friends have just returned from a fabulous weekend at this hotel. The rooms were lovely and a good size, the decor was very chic throughout and the staff really helpful. We rang down to houskeeping one night for more tea bags and they were brought up to the room within 10 minutes. Breakfast was lovely and if you fancy something that is not out, just ask - we asked for poached and boiled eggs and they were delivered to our table within 10 minutes! The hotel is in a lovely area and we felt safe walking about at night. There are a few shops in the area as well as a couple of pubs and a few restaurants. It was nice to walk along the quayside at night and Tower Bridge looked lovely all lit up. The hotel is also very convenient for the tube and buses. Overall I would have no hesitation recommending this hotel to anyone!
My wife and I stayed for the weekend on our wedding anniversary and had a great time. We were extremely impressed by this stylish hotel. The service was excellent! The staff were without exception friendly, helpful and very attentive. The room was great, very modern but comfortable, nicely lit, and cozy. The bar had a nice relaxed atmosphere, great decor, good music, subdued lighting, and comfortable seating. Ashley, the bartender was great. I set him a few cocktail challenges and he came up with the goods every time. The waiter service was perfect, they never left us hanging around waiting for attention, either in the bar or the restaurant. We were even complimented on the way we looked by a female member of staff who happened to be in the lift when we were on our way out to the theatre. The Thames Embankment and Tower Bridge are only a short stroll away, and the Tower of London just over the river. It is handy for the Tate Modern, the Globe Theater, H.M.S Belfast, and the London Dungeon. Can't fault this hotel at all. We will definitely be going back!
I stayed here for a conference which was venued at this hotel recently. At first glance, the building is really nice and the interior is great. However during the stay I experienced a number of problems which should be a warning to anyone else staying here. I reported each of these to the duty manager and the response was basically a shrug of shoulders and a weak apology.
Stunning Hotel & Perfect Service
Just came back from the UK and stayed for a weekend while in London at the new Hilton Tower Bridge. This hotel is amazing, so convenient to getting around the city. Our kids really enjoyed the London Dungeon just down the road. Closest tube is London Bridge and was easy for us to get back to Heathrow via the tube and heathrow express. Restaurant was great, and really friendly service.
We have just spent two nights in this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. My husband is a gold card holder so we were upgraded to an executive room which gave us use of the lounge. This was not as good as those we have experienced on the continent but it was lovely none the less with a terrace which can be used in the summer. Our room was large by London standards, very modern and very clean. The bathroom had a separate large walk in shower. We ate in the restaurant on the first night as it was part of our weekend break rate. A choice of three dishes for each course and the food was really nice for a set menu. Service was rather slow but I think this is mainly due to teething problems the staff were very helpful. I would definately recommend this hotel, it is only 5 minutes from the Tower of London and a similar distance to the boats, buses and tubes to take you across London. The area appeared to be very safe but was quiet with no major road - excellant hotel.
