Great comfortable hotel where coincidentally my meeting was being hosted. London city airport via Docklands Light Railway to Bank then short trip up northern line tube to London Bridge Station and ten minute walk to hotel - very convenient. Shard close by and virtually backs on to Borough food market ... room great ...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We booked Friday evening to arrive at noon the next day on an impulse. We paid a little more than if we booked earlier but the rate was still favourable. After a short wait at reception our family of four was greeted warmly by the smiling Babaye, who acknowledged a request I'd made for a view of the shard, wished...

An ultra modern hotel that is slightly too clinical for my liking. Very good as a business stay or as a 1 night transient place to stay for tourists. A delightful bar area and a decent menu, Breakfast was also very good. Rooms spacious and comfortable. Everything you could want it just has no individuality. Rooms were incredibly hot and...

The staff are very friendly and professional. The Wi-Fi is good and fast, you do need to sign in every time you return to the hotel. The rooms are a bit small and badly laid out. The quality of the fit out does not match the price. The shower controls are a mystery, approach with caution but it is worth...

This hotel is not to be confused with the Southwark Novotel - which I did. But it's a nice convenient hotel and close to south bank businesses and the jubilee line to get across the river. Room was fine, good to have USB charger and easy to use fridge stocked with ample water - I appreciated that. Room was quiet...

Quite a long stay in London, so the room had to be comfortable, and it was. It was also pretty spacious for a London hotel and best of all it was quiet which meant for good nights of sleep. I would happily stay here again either for business or pleasure and probably will.

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.
