Billed as “a 4-star boutique hotel in central London”, the Apex London Wall Hotel is situated near to the Bank of England and the Guildhall. It lies in the heart of the finance and business district and is surrounded by London landmarks such as St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Tower of London and The Gherkin.

The Apex London Wall Hotel has 89 rooms and suites with free WiFi internet access and local calls. The rooms have complimentary water and tea/coffee making facilities. Bathrooms have a bath, walk-in shower and luxury Elemis toiletries.The hotel has a restaurant and bar, private dining room and a gym.
The Inspector had an accessible double room on the third floor at a cost of £330 for one night including breakfast – (not sampled again since the Inspector met a client elsewhere for breakfast).

The room was very quiet, although the Inspector turned off the in-room air conditioning at night. There was no noise from outside as the hotel is situated up a quiet side street just off London Wall.
The Inspector dined at the Off The Wall restaurant which served up a perfectly respectable steak at around £18. The restaurant, which seats 45, is close to London Wall itself and has floor-to-ceiling windows which allow natural light to pour in. In summer, the windows can be opened fully for outdoor dining.

In summary, the Inspector found the Apex London Wall Hotel to be an excellent choice for the business traveller. He has stayed there several times before and is looking forward to returning.

Note: the Reluctant Hotel Inspector lives with me and, since I adore hotels, has to submit to my endless questioning which, I figure, you might find interesting too.
