Cheval Three Quay Review : Live next to Tower of London

Our neighbour was the Tower of London.

That's right! For 10 nights during our holidays, we are practically next to the Crown Jewels of the Tower of London. Our accommodation for this trip was Cheval Three Quay, a service apartment located adjacent to the Tower of London. One of the reasons why we chose this apartment was due to the size and configuration. Finding a decent 2-bedroom apartment in central London is challenging for anyone travelling to London, so this was one of the better option.

Checking in

Cheval Three Quays Lobby

We arrived late in the evening and had a pleasant check-in experience. As we did a pre-check-in, our keys were ready within 10 minutes, and we were off to our room. Since we had flown over 14 hours to reach London, a smooth transition made this a good start to our holidays.

The Room

Cheval Three Quays has 159 modern apartments to book. There are apartments ranging from one-bedroom, two bedrooms, three-bedrooms and two-bedroom penthouses.  They offer a choice of urban views, tower views and river views.

It would have been spectacular if you had a room facing the Tower Bridge, but we decided on a 2-bedroom urban apartment instead. At a price difference of over 200 quid per night, it can tally up over a 10-night stay. Besides, looking at our itinerary, we would only be in during the night and would be too exhausted to enjoy the spectacular view.

So, in the end, we have to live with views like this.

Chevel Three Quays Living Room

Other than the views, it was all praises for the spacious layout. We have a separate living area, a separate utility room with a washer /dryer and a full-size open-plan kitchen with dining tables and chairs. The room measures 1013 sqft or 94 sqm, a very decent-sized room compared to the alternatives.

The living room comes with an L-shaped sofa that sits 4 comfortably. For entertainment, we have free-to-air channels and cable that come with football channels.

Chevel Three Quays Dining Room

The fully function kitchen is a godsend. Eating out is notoriously expensive in London, so we did have quite a few home-cooked meals or ready meals from Tesco Expres to mix things up.

Wifi was provided, and complimentary snacks and treats were provided for our stay, including free-range eggs and bread.

Chevel Three Quays Master Room

The master bedroom has a comfortable king-size bed and a heated ensuite bathroom.

Amenities such as shower gel and shampoo are provided  

The 2nd bedroom has single-size beds that can be converted to a double on request.

There is a separate bathroom in the hallway, and this comes with a bathtub instead of a shower.

Overall, it was an impressive room and one that we are happy to call home during our stay in London.

There is a 24-hour reception and a small lobby for guests. There is also a 24-hour  gym on site.

While the facilities are limited, given that we spend most of the time in the apartment, we found it adequate.


Cheval Three Quays is a hotel located right next to the Tower of London and on the banks of the River Thames. Other than being the perfect location as a base for a Jewel Heist, some rooms at Cheval Three Quay also come with views of the Tower Bridge.

Tower Hill

Within walking distance are the Sky Garden and Leadenhall Market.

London's Oldest surviving church - All Hallows-by-the-Tower, founded in 675 is just steps away.

You can also cross the river via London Bridge or Tower Bridge to get to Borough Market, The Shard, Hay's Galleria and more.

Tower Bridge

In London, it is always good to have a tube near you. Tower Hill is an easy 5-minute walk and connects to the Circle and District Line. From here, it is easy to navigate your way to most attractions in London and beyond.


Within a 5 minutes walking radius, you have a couple of cafes such as Pret A Manager, Starbucks and restaurants such as Coppa Club Tower Bridge, Wagamama, Crispies and even a KFC.

More food options exist near Tower Hill tube and the nearby St Katherine's Dock.

If you need supplies, you can always walk to Tesco Express. Do note that the passage along the Wharf is only open daily from 7am to 7pm.

Getting there from Heathrow Airport

While taking the tube from Heathrow Airport via Picadily or Elizabeth Line is possible, you must change to another line along the way. The total journey can take approximately 1 to 1.5 hours. Additionally, you have to take note of stairs between stations, which could pose a challenge if you have young kids or elderly and suitcases.

Tower Hill

A ride on the Black Cab costs around £80-100, depending on traffic. That would be the preferred option if you are travel in a group of 4 or more.

How to book

You can make a booking at the hotel website. Do also check as there may be times when prices are cheaper there.
