Hotels near the Tower of London are a mix of large 4-star, mostly global chain hotels. In recent years some budget chain hotels have also appeared, such as Premier Inn, Travelodge and Ibis.
These are all within a 5-min walk at most from the entrance to the Tower of London and Tower Bridge. The major influence on hotels rates around Tower Bridge is the City of London business area all around it with the financial sector dominating.See our selection of hotels in City of London

Liverpool Street Station is a hotel area very close to the Tower Bridge area. See our separate page for more hand-picked hotels.
For more information on the City area as a place to stay, take a look at our City of London area guide.
Liverpool Street, City of London and the Tower of London is located to the east of central London and is home to the commercial and financial district of London. This is an area that is thriving during the week but much quieter at weekends. It is by no means a dead area to visit though as it has a vast array of attractions and places of interest in its own right. Most visitors will explore the city of London area during the day but head back into central London for the evening to enjoy the theatres and entertainment.
The area around the Tower of London and Tower Bridge is a fascinating place to stay. Along the river, areas don't close down as much as the areas inland towards Bank and Liverpool Street. As well as Tower Bridge and the Tower of London, there is Leadenhall Market, the Monument and HMS Belfast to explore among others.
There are also some good bars, pubs and restaurants and visitors might appreciate an environment where local workers are in evidence, in contrast to some hotel areas where everyone seems to be a tourist. From Tower Pier in front of Tower Bridge, regularly scheduled boats go either way down the River Thames to Westminster and Greenwich.
See our detailed City walks page for more information.
City is an often-overlooked location within London to stay and can offer great value and some amazing attractions to those wanting to stay here. It has good hotels, plenty to see and do, lots of restaurants and pubs in an area not overrun by tourists.
As well as Tower Bridge and the Tower of London, there is Leadenhall Market, the Monument, HMS Belfast and more.
If you are flying into Heathrow, then the area is the other side of London from London's main airport and has no direct links, so your transfer will take longer.
City is a business district, and as such the price of hotel rooms during the working week is expensive.
However, the flip side of this is that if you are a tourist planning on visiting at the weekend, you can benefit from some extremely competitive room rates, for a very good quality hotel.
We recommend considering the Kings Cross & St Pancras area to benefit from slightly cheaper room rates and good transfer links or County Hall & Waterloo also by the river but slightly closer to central London.
