Nice, comfortable hotel in the center for an affordable price. The room was spacious, clean and had all the stuff neccessary. The view was great as well. There was breakfast included in price and that was good as well, many things to choose from. I recommnend this place.

The price I paid here for a hotel in London which is right at the back of the Tate Modern is amazing. Great value and breakfast was included too. Downstairs there is a bar which caters mainly for students so the prices are very cheap for London. No TV in the rooms and a very small shower but they are... More

Absolutely perfect location! You're about a 10 mins away from the tube but you're already in the center so there's so much around you that you can walk to like the Tate Modern, St Paul's or the Globe. The accommodation was exactly what you needed, especially with the price, clean, private, quiet and safe. Breakfast was a great start to... More

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.
