We've arrived there and our room was ready, unfortunately the low level room we where brought to smelled of fish n chips, due to the pub kitchen next door. The front desk was very professional and changed our room to a higher floor. That room was a lot better. It was small but clean and the bed was comfortable (no...

I have stayed here twice now and it is a great little place to stay in london. I had a room with shared bathroom first time which was absolutely fine. Then a double room with private bathroom. The hotel is right next to Borough tube and is very convenient for central london. The service from the staff is always first...

I will will say that to advertise a room a "deluxe" and then on arrival you learn that that means shared bathroom is very misleading. If it was expressed on the website I couldn't see it easily. Disappointed

This was a late booking, and I got a decent room. Quiet, very clean, with a very comfortable king size bed. It's right by Borough tube station on the Northern Line, with an in-house cafe downstairs. They asked for photo ID, which isn't usually required of UK citizens. Minor improvement points - the desk doesn't have a power point, nor...

Freshly decorated, large rooms, high quality bathrooms. I was surprised how good this place was. Don't judge it by the front door! Great location just south of the river and close to the centre of town.

Perfect location for what we required as arriving from Euston, via Northern Line directly to Borough Station next door, and a stroll from London Bridge. The welcome was friendly and efficient. A very clean hotel, with bright decor. Thoughtfully had fan in room as was hot, and traffic of course straight outside so opening window was not an option when...

Wanted a budget hotel for an overnight sight-seeing jaunt to London. To be honest, booked this hotel based on low price and previous reviews, but didn't have high hopes for quality. It exceeded our expectations by miles. The contact before arrival was great - they offered to look after luggage if we arrived before check in time, without being asked....
