Arbor City Hotel, London
Single room on business
I booked a single and was the size I expected. The hotel was great, the room finishings were nice and clean. The hotel restaurant I dined in one night took a bit for dinner and drinks but was understandably busy and I was in no hurry, wait staff were nice. The only complaint if I'm being critical was that you could hear neighboring doors closing at night.

Very Good8.0
Good hotel with OK location
Arbor City Hotel worked well for our 4 day trip to London. It is close to the Tower of London and Tower Bridge and a tube stop and there are numerous bars and restaurants in the area. It's not as ritzy as other areas of London but was still convenient and comfortable and felt safe during our stay and is in a less touristy area overall. Room itself (Club Double Room) was basic but comfortable and clean with a nice bed and quiet at night. Overall Arbor City Hotel was a good place for our stay in London at a decent price for the area if you're looking to avoid some of the more touristy/crowded areas of the city.

Arbor City Hotel, London
for couples not for gourps of three
Nice hotel, value for money, but room for 3 guests is with roll out bed which is very very uncomfortable Us this hotel if you don''t need extra bed.

Great hotel in London
Fast, courteous check in. The room was excellent and housekeeping provided plenty of towels and soap for us. Fun neighborhood and just around the corner from the metro, always a plus! Lovely coffee places close by and a Tesco a five minute walk away. All in all, recommended.

Arbor City Hotel, London
ok for the money
Friendly front desk receptionists. However, a 4-star hotel cannot provide a business center or at least a guest computer.
