XL king-size bed that you just melt into. Views over-looking the Tower of London. Full service bar and eats 24 hrs a day (so hard to find in London!) and a stones throw away from hip East London? citizenM Tower of London has this west-London die-hard looking East in a whole new way.
Upon discovering the citizenM brand, I had a pretty strong feeling there could be strong synergy with ‘N A Perfect World. Comfortable, cool, living room-like common areas with easily accessible wiFi and enough art, coffee table books and classics to keep you entertained for hours. A brand philosophy that celebrates the global citizen, mobile citizens and travel entrepreneurs. Oh, and it’s right above the Tower Hill tube station. Right away I knew this hotel was designed with the mobile friendly millennial / gen Z in mind: there was a kiosk check in that took less than a minute. But there was still that quirky-cool personal touch and smiling hotel employees that kept it from feeling staged or sterile. They also maintained a sense of that classic hotel experience; citizenM was cool but not alienating.
Then I got to my room. Not since my stay at a palace in Portugal — yes a 5-star palace — has a room felt so right. For very different reasons, I knew that I would be requesting this room for my future stays at citizenM Tower of London. Light, airy, modern. Efficient, but the use of space was far from utilitarian. This hotel room rivaled many studios I saw in London! HUGE windows with iPad controlled blinds. The warm afternoon sun begged for me to take a nap in the plush bed. But I was having too much fun with the iPad, the LED lights and the perks of a smart room. Need to set the tone for romance? citizenM has you covered? Want a more productive wake up vibe? They have that too! Inviting friends over to get ready for a night out? Put your room in party mode!
Later in the evening, I finally tore myself away from the love affair with my room and met my friend Oli for a drink on citizenM’s rooftop bar, cloudM. I’m embarrassed to say it, but after all these years, I’ve never been to the Tower of London. But now, I’ve watched the sunset overlooking it while sipping a G&T! cloudM is for guests and their friends so unlike most other rooftop bars in London that become unbearably packed at the hint of sun, cloudM was fun, spacious and quite affordable! There are really great meeting rooms that you can rent here starting at 300£ for half a day.
With room rates starting at 125£ get to booking citizenM Tower of London for your summer holidays (remember, the cheapest date to book flights is on Tuesday)! I know I’m excited to explore the other citizenM properties for my European summer travels.
