I stay at a lot of Marriott properties and found this to be one of my more enjoyable stays. The staff was very accommodating and knowledgeable. The room was nice and reasonably spacious. I like the way they refilled the waters as well as all included products. I also found to me the unique water service near the elevators to be a great addition. I like refilling a lot of water bottles.What I used of the restaurant I found the food to be very good. I thought it was very well located for my needs. I really enjoyed being located very near the Thames river. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone staying in London.

My fiancé and I had a wonderful stay here. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are comfortable, have adjustable ac, and the bathrooms are nice. The curtains/shades are not 100% blackout though so if you need complete darkness to sleep then you will not be satisfied. The breakfast is good, I loved the scrambled eggs. Allergy info is clearly posted on buffet items. We will be back here next time we're in London for sure.

We were at Bankside hotel in April and were wonderfully treated by the full staff. the checkin was done excellently by Soyful, who took great care in getting us what we were looking for in a hotel. Inviting us to wine hour (can recommend!!), and explaining the various amenities of the hotel and room. would highly recommend staying at this beautiful hotel, with great service all round!

Our room was clean and comfortable. The beds were fabulous. The bathroom was luxurious and clean. The food and service were great too. The front desk wowed my kids with a toy upon arrival. My son loved his mini cooper and my daughter loved the slinky. The location was convenient and a stone's throw from the train station and close to the tube too. Soyful went above and beyond to make our stay nice!

The hotel is modern, is in a nice location and the staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. I upgraded to a larger room and happy I did as the room was a comfortable size but more of what I would have expected as a base sized room. It's located close to the Tate Modern, Shakespeare's Globe and in walking distance of the City.

I stayed here with a friend while we visited London for a few days. It was perfectly located just opposite the train station and a few mins walk from the Tube. It is a stunningly beautiful hotel and within walking distance of the Tate Modern and numerous restaurants. I really enjoyed my stay, the staff couldn't have been more helpful or friendly. Will definitely be back.

Second time I have stayed at Bankside and it is truly a next level experience - even the hand soap smells amazing. From check in to check out the staff cannot do enough to help you and always with a smile on their faces. The hotel itself is spacious, modern, and spotlessly clean. There is an excellent buffet style breakfast with something for everyone.

We stayed at Bankside for three nights. From beginning to end - everything was excellent. We were taken care of by great staff, from all the receptionists to F&B and Housekeeping. Especially Soyful made sure all details were in place and his personal approach made us feel right at home. The location is AAA, with trains one minute away and all sightseeing available within walking distance. We would highly recommend and would definitely stay here again.

From the moment you walk in to the lobby area you know you’re going to have a great stay. I’ve been fortunate enough to have stayed in some pretty amazing hotels across the globe but this is one of my favourites. Why? No. 1 reason has to be the staff. I love the reception set up where they all sit as a grand table and whilst you’re checking in you feel like one of the gang, My daughter and I had room 508 which was a lovely corner room. Most luxurious and comfortable bed and some lovely furnishings to the room. We ordered breakfast in bed from the room tablet and it was delivered hot and accurate to order on pretty swift timing. Totally loved this hotel. We deserved 5 stars!
