My "twin" room had two beds facing each other and a sink TV on the wall across. There was no desk, and the noise from the street was quite strong even if I was on the top floor. Worse, I could hear every word and the TV from the adjoining room as the walls are quite thin. The furniture in...

Extremely small rooms at a high price. Friendly staff at reception. General cleanliness was good, wifi did not work at all when in the room. Convenient location right next door to the tube station. No safe in room for valuables. Good for one night stay

Stayed one night post holiday after our flight, very comfy hotel, great location. Receptionist was really friendly. One note is there is no lift so heavy bags need carrying up stairs. Very comfy bed, free wifi

This hotel is situated between a tube station and a pub. Great location for Borough Market and for getting around London. Clean rooms and great staff who do everything right. But to the rear is a series of aircon units and a pub vent that is really penetratingly noisy. Not everyone will need an early night - but I did...

Very conveniently located, 10 minutes from London Bridge rail station or Shakespeare Globe which are just across the river from the City, the hotel has such a small door you barely notice it when you walk past it. Tube station and bus stop next door. This is a no-fuss hotel but the room was clean and comfortable. The young persons...

Five stars easily. Excellent location. Miniature boutique hotel, reminiscent of an upmarket student hall of residence. Very clean. Not just in an "I expected it to be grim and it wasn't" kind of way, truly spotless (kudos to the housekeepers). Single room, sink, bathroom down the hall (get over yourself, you don't need a bathroom. You just don't). Ensuites are...

We usually travel as a couple and go for the usual large 'premier' style hotels but booked the City Hotel on this occasion because we were travelling with my Mum and wanted a triple room.

The hotel could not be easier to find, really clean with friendly staff. The bed was so comfortable, the room was a little small but I'm not sure what you can expect in London for a reasonable price. We would definitely go again and would recommend to anyone.
