Our room was clean and comfortable and we found the complimentary breakfast to be fine. The WIFI was easy to connect to and worked great. The staff of this hotel was...

The breakfast was exactly as expected having used this chain before, a little manic with over cooked sausages but ok for free. The wifi worked fine. Our room was a family double with sofa bed.

Basic hotel as expected. Currently looks unappealing as it's surrounded by scaffolding. my room was nice enough but freezing and the air-con just blew cold air. I was there for 1 night on business and it was adequate but I'll choose an alternative next time if possible. Location was fine, felt safe and about a 5 minute walk to the...

I stayed at this hotel for two nights and I enjoyed it. The prices for rooms are quite expensive, but the value is still there.

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.
