I keep on telling myself I should try other hotels in this part of London and there certainly is enough choice but I keep on coming back here. I tried the online check in / check out for the first time and it worked flawlessly. I requested a room with a bath that looked into the parking (quieter than those...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 30 August 2016

This is a great hotel in a great location. A very comfortable room. Great space, bathroom, bed - modern, light, clean and quiet. It has its own car park to the rear and if you exit this way and walk to the left you are literally in the heart of Borough Market. Its also a stone's throw from the Thames...

This hotel is not a bad choice. Good location near the River and St Paul's cathedral, Tower of London and other attractions. The area away from the river, walking opposite direction from the hotel is not very nice so I would avoid walking around there, specially at night. We had an executive room for 3 people. Two double beds in...

We stayed in the family room on the fifth floor recently for 2 nights with small children for a weekend in London. Everything about the hotel is absolutely fine apart from temperature in our room which was way too hot. There is no way of changing it apart from opening the window which let all the noise in. We spoke...

Had to stay in London for meeting various people across London - this hotel was conveniently located, close to London Bridge station and due to the sunny weather other venues were now at walking distance. Despite my unadvised early arrival, the very nice french man sitting right from the check-in desks managed to find me a room (my originally assigned...

Any staff members that we came across were very friendly, the hotel itself is of modern decor and very clean. In the lobby you'll find a bar, some Apple Mac's(free to use) and a touch screen games table for children. The room had only been refurbished a month ago so was in fab condition. Lovely shower, bed and coffee maker....

If I had stayed here for just one night, I would have given the hotel a much lower rating - our room was on the second floor facing a street and I could hear every single car that went past, people's voices at 3am, sirens and so on, so I slept very poorly. However, when I asked reception if we...

Staying in Southwark

Neighbourhood Profile
Southwark
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighbourhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
