My mother came down to visit and I booked us into this hotel for 3 nights in a twin room. I chose the hotel based on cost, its excellent location behind the Tate Modern and its proximity to good tube/rail links: Southwark (Jubilee), London Bridge (Jubilee/Northern/mainline) and St Paul's (Central). It is also close to many attractions including the Shard,...

The hotel is modern and well kept. It is in an good location just across the river. Not the same feel as staying near St. Paul's. It is in a business area and you have to go into town for any late night dining or sightseeing. The top floors have a great view.

This is a very good hotel. Reasonable value. Excellent quality. Close to the south bank (near Bankside, Tate Modern and a short walk to the South Bank or Borough Market/London Bridge). It is a bit away from the central area but for the price it is very good and only a short walk from lots of interesting parts of London....

Stayed here "for one night only" while visiting London to see a show. Staff were friendly and helpful, check in was easy and the room comfortable and clean.

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.
