Occupying the 34th to 52nd floors of architect Renzo Piano’s iconic Shard building, this 5-Star hotel is 2 minutes walk from London Bridge railway and tube station and a mile from the Tower of London.
As you can see it can be seen from quite a distance - this photo was taken from the north bank of the river Thames by Tower Bridge.

Staying in the Shangri-La is quite expensive. Typically prices start from £600 per night but if you book via Trivargo you might get that down to £530.
The drinks and food are also quite expensive. When you add it all up you can expect to pay nearly £1,000 per night.
The GONG bar is a great place to enjoy night-time London from 52 floors up with a glass of Champagne. It's even better with a friend or two.
It's a great place if you just want to hang with your friends and admire the spectacular views over London, especially at night.
If pigeon-poop wasn't a big enough problem, London now has huge Pterodactyls laying metallic eggs all over the place.
