It may have been expensive but a night here was worth every penny. Floor to ceiling windows in all rooms giving clear views across London. Even provide a set of binoculas to spot the distant landmarks. Room fixtures and fittings were excellent although the glass shower room was definately for the exhibitionists fortunately we were on the 49th Floor so not overlooked!! (Seriously you can shut the blinds, but you lose the view).
The Gong bar was nice but expensive.
Pool on the 52nd floor was small but had the best view of London.

Stay for weekend 20/11/15 as a treat for my 50th birthday. Room was ok smaller than I had imagined for 3 people, right on front busy road traffic noise unless window closed all the time. Friday evening ordered snack from room service (toastie) cold tasteless with no salad for and pricey. Woke up to no hot water on Saturday morning had cold showers not good!! Apart from that London sight seeing was brilliant

Very clean, all amenities worked well. Friendly helpful staff. Bus stop across the road, borough stn 6 min walk. A very small room, but what I would expect for an economy single in a 3 star. Only complaint would be a little noise through the walls on Sunday morning.
